If I recall correctly, the protest movements in the 60’s and 70’s started out the same way. Later, most focused on the war in Viet Nam, but a lot of it was much like these young people: “something is wrong and we want it to change”. When I was these people’s age, we didn’t trust “the system” any more than these young folks do, and for the same reason. It was run by the big corporations, known then as “the military-industrial complex”, and its main goal was preservation of the system as it was, because it was working for them, not for the people. Funny how some things never change, isn’t it?
