These are such false categories. I would be a Private, but I was active in the antiwar and women's movements and have been a woman of the left since early adulthood. The current generation did not invent socially responsble consumer boycotts. Didn't anyone ever hear of the grape boycott or the Nestle campaign?

this is meant to be a bit of generalization of these generations. everyone can agree that during theses times there was people who didn't fit into these categories, however for the most part, the vast majority of the population did. it is the people who didn't fit in who brought upon real change and set the foundation for the next generation to build upon... can we do that as the first globals??? or we will we conform to whatever media tells us to be? it's up to you.
