NSH - I think what Diana was saying wasn't necessarily in direct conflict with your sentiments. But Boomers didn't all take and not give....Civil Rights and anti-war marches were not all self-involved.

shameful behavior.we all hang together or we all hang separately
Washing with unadulterated soap and water is all that most people need. Our obsession with body odor is just a marketing ploy to convince us to purchase products, many of which have never been tested for chronic toxicity after direct application or subsequent entry into the environment.
Republicans like to talk about the virtues of " Main Street" while overlooking the fact that about 70% of our economy is consumption. When exclusive, high end products being sold to the super wealthy are doing exceptionally well and the rest of the consumer economy is in the doldrums, shouldn't that tell us something about the health of the economy?It should stand to reason that redistribution should benefit main street because people with less income have to spend it.
hang in there, constant. One of my kids was like that and there was never a solution...then, with love and support, he grew up and guess what! He's ok. Just hang in there and don't be discouraged by the lost skirmishes. Trust me: You are winning the war.
