Because when they happened ...

... they weren't born yet: WHY THEY HATE THE '50S. (Hat tip, Paul Davis.)

To assume people you don't know and don't try to understand are empty and hopeless, though, is a characteristic of a shallow, smug, incurious mind.
I once talked to a guy who lived in a very nice house in a very nice development outside Elko, Nevada, about the way suburbia tended to be depicted in American fiction. He remarked that "I guess I'm too busy enjoying myself to notice how empty my life is."
