I think you need to go back and re-read these comments. I noted actual, documented movements with proven change reflected in the laws of this country. Such laws as the Civil Rights Act, Title 9 and on and on. These things had and continue to have tremendous impact on our society. So no, I'm not referring to "one hippy who existed in that generation." I'll note it's a generation of which I'm not part. I was born in 78.
Now let us examine your examples. Oh, that's right, you reported to a Boomer once. That makes you an expert on that generation for sure. Your other examples? Gallup polls show we are moving in the right direction - what does that even mean?
As to the impact of the Boomer generation dying out - we agree on that. Heck, I'll even agree that the Boomer generation today is stepping in a backward direction. Still, the boomers accomplished more in the 60's than all of the generations that have followed have accomplished period (from a civil movement standpoint). Let's note that whining on Facebook or posting scathing memes on Instagram doesn't seem to be an effective civil movement. In fact, I can't think of a single thing that any of those generations have accomplished. Even the small moves toward equality that have happened over the last couple of decades have been effected by Boomers. I say this as a person who is part of one of these rather unaccomplished generations.
