My generation

Description

Creed O'Hanlon questions the real influence of baby boomers in this essay for Griffith Review 13. He suggests that rather than being the social conscience of the twentieth century, they deliberately co-opted and distorted youth culture and turned it into a commodity, packaging dissent as readily as community, music or fashion. He believes that the baby boomers were never really idealists but were, and still are, innately selfish and cynical.
