Of course physically, they came from their mothers, but spiritually that is another question.
Never in human history has a group valued non-conformity, individual spiritual insight and peace so highly. The boomers also found it hard to imagine life over thirty or life without youth(Remember the 60's movie: "Wild In The Streets").

The counter culture moved forward in North America and Great Britain with challenging movies and music of the 60s. Do you remember "Easy Rider", "Cool Hand Luke" and "Billy Jack?"
"Where's it's at for you dad, isn't necessarily where it's at for me." was one of the defining slogans of that age.
What do you think of the boomer phenomena?
