Stop being a Boomer in the Matrix. The '90s (let alone the '60s, '70s, and '80s) are a thing of the past and they're never coming back. Time to move forward, build community with like-minded people, stop wasting time with those who hold very different views who'll never change their minds, improve yourself body, mind, and spirit, and prepare for what is coming; things are going to get even more 'real' than they already have been, so stop nostalgically pinning for a now-dead idealized past.

My opinion on the matter was set in stone a good while before the current "march in the streets every day" situation materialized.
There is no common ground between today's left and right. The "people" on the right have remained fairly consistent. Many leftists are trying to convince the people that those on the right who remain traditional in their ideology are radical. That's not so. The so called "alt right" is simply the right as it has been for many decades.
The difference is in how the leadership on the right has corrupted conservative ideology.
It's the left that has radicalized. I see little difference between the Democratic Party and Communist Party USA. In fact, many on the left don't bother to deny their Communist leanings.
There's a statue of Lenin in Seattle, for Pete's sake.
Also, I agree with the linked article that the term "Boomer" is starting to take on a new meaning. It no longer applies to just a generation. It applies to a mindset - or just an older person that a young person disagrees with.
Vox Day has long led the charge against the Boomer generation. He's written many topics on his blog which blames every ill society has on the Boomer generation. I told him several years ago that at the rate culture moves, he would be at the prime age to catch the receiving end of his vendetta against old people if it ever came to pass. He's soon to turn 52 and is already having to fight off the occasional "Boomer" label from young adults.
It makes me laugh every time I see it happen.
After your community of like-minded people is built, it will break up into factions. Look at churches of like-minded people. They form and grow then some members are not happy with the direction it is going, break off and form their own which will grow until some members are not happy with the direction it is going. There is never going to be a community of like-minded people. The best outcome is to respect each other even if we don't agree with them and try to find some common ground we all can live with.
Your expectation of a community that is "like-minded" on all topics is unachievable in ANY form - not even families. This FACT has been proven by history time and time again. If you cannot handle "disagreement" you will be a slave or a member of the side with the most violent control mechanisms.
