Boomer here .........
Nobody convinced me of anything, I complied with the laws, or I went to jail.
No free love or sex parties either.
Yeah - most of it was done silently with lies and stealth. The repercussions of feminism and no-fault divorce was not clear just as the immigration change of 1965 was not clear - plus they lied through their teeth.
Still - the conditioning via media and entertainment shaped and changed Boomer behavior tremendously even if they could not manifest most of the crap until the next generation came into being. The full destruction was only apparent among the Millennials. And even they are hardly the end-stage.
You are right however - this blaming on the boomers for everything is ridiculous. Generation X or the Millennials wouldn't have behaved any differently if they were born then instead of the Boomers.
