A quick thought on entitlement society

America's entitlement mentality has been cultivated quite effectively via contemporary pop culture.

We're all supposed to be angry and have discontent with the older generations -- thus it follows that all the values and principles they have held dear must be dismissed as well.

I wonder how smart and original people such as what we see with the grunge generation hold-outs would feel if someone were to successfully make them aware that their rage-against-the-machine collective personal philosophy is little more than a rehash of the 60's antiwar movement, just effectively packaged and marketed to them in a nice neat, profitable strategy.
