Is this Generation a Bunch of Pussies?

I just saw the U.S. vs. John Lennon.

I can't help wondering if the current generation is anesthetized by all the entertainment available to us. In the 60s, there were constant anti-war demonstrations. Now, we have the 'power' of blogs.

People were scandalized when the Republicans set up 'free speech zones' in NYC coincident with their convention there. I wonder how they would have reacted if protests were dealt with in the good old-fashioned way, like during the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in '68.
