Streisand coaching Ridley
#1
1:51 into this video is a great example of the "boomer coaching millenial" dynamic.  Streisand knows exactly what she wants, and Ridley just does it.  I've cued it to the relevant portion.

Streisand was born in 1942, which makes her a boomer by Strauss/Howe theory. Sanders was born in 1941, which may make him either a silent or a boomer.

According to the Lifecourse website, Silent Generation was from '25 to '42.  http://www.lifecourse.com/about/method/t...ation.html

Which makes both Bernie and Babs Silent Generation, but just barely.  They both have prophet characteristics, to be sure.

Strauss & Howe put the generational breakpoints a few years earlier than the demographic  definitions.  For example, the demographic definition says that people who are born in 1964 are still boomers.  From a generational cohort characteristic perspective, the Strauss & Howe definitions work better.

So, the definitions on lifecourse.com are not Strauss and Howe's definitions?  I thought it was Neil Howe's website.

Sorry, you're right.  My observation has been that 1942 births are almost always seem more boomer like, and I accept the "not old enough to understand what was going on in the crisis war" explanation for that generational changeover, so I guess I've reassigned the break point to be a year or two earlier in my mind.

In general the Silent tended to start out GI-like and tend toward Boom tendencies. Streisand did not stay very GI-like very long.
