American society has become more diverse, and more accepting of diversity, because its members are more educated. This is why the baby boom forges new ways of life, and why there cannot be-no matter how much some people may want it-a return to the simple traditions of the past. Becoming educated makes life more complex because it turns black and white into shades of gray. Getting educated is like losing innocence-once lost, it is gone forever. The more educated people are, the more interest they take in current events and the less afraid they are of ties with foreign countries.

But beginning in the late 1970s, younger baby boomers rethought the rebellion of the older ones, which created two political generations. Younger baby boomers are more hard-boiled than the older ones, according to Yankelovich, but they are just as permissive, if not more so, when it comes to individual rights and choices. 48 Only 25% of the younger baby boomers favored banning a speaker from campus, versus 40% of their older brothers and sisters. Surprisingly, 21% of 1982 college freshmen had taken part in a campus demonstration, versus only 16% of the more radical college freshmen of 1967.

During the 1970s, the number of young workers grew rapidly as the baby-boom generation flooded the labor force. In the 1990s, the number of middle-aged workers will grow rapidly as the boom generation celebrates more birthdays. The aging of the baby boom should help to raise the productivity of American workers because the longer workers are on the job, the more productive they are. It also should help to lower the unemployment rate. As the number of young people looking for work declines in the decade ahead, entry-level job opportunities and pay should increase.
