The other thing is, most of the people having children now never experienced mumps, measles, polio, or any of the other diseases that largely went away after my generation were children. Nobody our kids knew ever had them, so they’re not real to them.

Apply that line of thinking to attitudes towards unions:

‘Hey, we’ve got a 40 hour week and weekends off. What do we need unions for?’

Or the environment:

‘The water in my town is totally drinkable! The Clean Water Act is unnecessary!’

Too many people were not around when things weren’t as good as they are now, and they assume things were always that good, without anyone having to make them that way.
