I was just a child in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, so I didn’t see any Vietnam-Era protesting.  But I’ve learned enough to know that there are considerable differences between the protesters of that era and the protesters of this era.

And the most significant difference is this one:

To Vietnam-Era protesters, all lives mattered.

To Digital-Age protesters, only Black lives matter.

All lives matter–always!

    totally agree – through luck, hard work, or inheritance some folk achieve higher status/wealth/power in our society than do others but the grief and pain felt by friends and relatives who lose a loved one is the same regardless of the deceased’s position in society

    and once you start thinking some people’s death’s are more important/significant than others you are on a slippery slope towards countenancing divisions and inequalities in treatment of the living based on some arbitrary criteria
