Exactly. According to online lifespan calculators based on "zip code", which is a dog whistle for socioeconomic caste, radicals like myself can hope to see our 60th birthdays and our "successful" ass-kissing classmates will probably see their 80th and beyond.

No regrets, just please don't dismiss an entire generation of wannabe allies based on faulty interpretation of statistics.

I'm sure I'll have more to say about aging and monkeywrenching/resisting agism as I become more familiar with the community. Fortunately, I personally have a vibrant and supportive community of young 'uns to inspire me so there's no way I'm giving up on them since they haven't given up on me!
