Subject: RE: Are 20 somethings and younger shallow?
I don't know that Baby Boomers care more about the news than younger generations. I think they cared when it was hip to care (Vietnam era), but they seem to be far more divisive politically (i.e. less informed, more blindly partisan) than whatever this generation is called. Perhaps it is because younger people are more jaded about politics having never really experienced political idealism that actually WORKED (JFK, MLK Jr)... they've had a movie star president, a b****** president, and two out-of-touch Texans.
If you mean by "superficial", you mean less likely to get married young or have serious long-term relationships, however, I think that is DEFINITELY true.
The biggest generational difference I notice is that the "Greatest Generation", for all their talk about the way things used to be, are more often rude and impatient.
