Merv Griffin Show: U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy Interview: Civil Unrest, Vietnam War, in 1967


“Bobby Kennedy who wasn’t a Baby Boomer, more of a depression baby, doing a good job speaking for the Baby Boom generation. Not the whole generation, but certainly the New Left that came of age in the 1960s and early 1970s. Whose parents were from the Silent Generation and World War II, who saw America except for the Counter-Culture Movement as just fine the way it was and were happy with the status quo. Because that is what they grew up with and all they knew. Now seeing their kids as people who came of age during the Vietnam War and the civil rights movement. And seeing all sorts of poverty in America and thinking they could get involved in these things and change America for the good. Who saw the status quo in American life as not worth conserving. And wanted to create a new America for themselves.”
