LA Times said:
There's good news from the front in one of our internecine economic and political battles: the war between the generations.
The news is that the younger generation is beginning to see through the propaganda.
For years now, efforts to set young against old have been linchpins in campaigns to cut Social Security and Medicare benefits and turn those programs over to the private sector. The basic tactic is to portray those programs as giveaways to undeserving seniors that rip off the young; the goal is to turn the ostensibly dispossessed young into an effective political counterweight to reform-resistant elderly.
"Generational conflict messaging is incredibly potent right now," observes Alex Lawson, 32, executive director of the Washington advocacy group Social Security Works. The time is ripe, he indicated, for young activists to push back against this narrative.
hmmm.... 'nuther lost political battle?
