...partly. As far as Billy Joel's quote...that song was written in 1989 as his rebuttal to criticism of the baby boomers (he was a boomer)...
and the words "we didn't start the fire, it was always burning since the world's been turning" applies to everyone and makes my point - don't blame one generation for all the problems.
The boomers WERE busy protesting Vietnam, marching with MLK, and fighting for women's rights. Perhaps they should have done more in the political arena, but hey, everyone has their own battles. Perhaps your generation can defeat the neo-cons.
