    That’s what they mean and what they hope you do.

    In reality, only a small amount of people make that transition, and usually it is because of brain rot combined with propaganda like Fox news.

    Most people do get milder and more realistic as they age, but not necessarily more conservative.

    You can still find a lot of leaft-leaning old hippies. I guess Bernie Sanders would be the most famous one.

      In previous generations, people did on average become more conservative as they got older; people like Bernie Sanders are the exception.

      It’s less true with newer generations because we aren’t accumulating wealth like our parents and grandparents did, and it’s the accumulation of wealth that encourages conservatism
