Are Yesterday's Hippies Today's Conservatives?

The NY Times had a wonderful section of articles from 40 years of the Op-Ed section. In 1971, an op-ed article predicted that, once out of college and into the 'real world,' "the college cohort of the late '60s will be relatively less receptive to the dominant social change-directed thrusts of the day, and in that sense more moderate or conservative."

I can report, albeit from anecdotal evidence, that many of my friends from college are indeed moderate to the point of conservative, especially fiscally. While I don't want to move to a commune any time soon, I'd like to think I maintain some of the idealism and impulse to activism I started with.

How far toward the right have you moved?
