I'm a Boomer too. I got turned on to the None Dare Call it Conspiracy book in 1976, and was reading Solzhenitsen after he warned America, and got involved in a Christian ministry which taught us to go after the truth, even the most inconvenient and unpopular.
You may be wrong about Boomers unlearning of the disinformation, and a decades long sharpened tool of discernment. More and more the facade of official lies is cracking under our hammer of disbelief.
News: RT, the newswoman discussed a possible return to a gold standard, and a Morgan Stanley spokesman opposed this- because he said we couldn't respond to crisis in the marketplace quickly enough if we had gold backed currency. Most Boomers wouldn't agree -now that their own retirement looms, and may end up penniless, pensions and savings sacked by bankers, businesses forced to close, children's futures without a legacy to help them - all on the line with zero backed fake monopoly bills and trillions in debt owed.
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
