A guy told me this a while ago, I thought it was pretty on, from what Ive seen.
Late teens, 20's- Fuck the World, lets go. This always the key group in anything political, whether its actions or campaigns or promos or rallies. Lots of energy, lots of spirit, lots of angst, and most importantly, lots of time.
30's- Still pissed, but getting going with career. Possibly getting a family started. A more logical reasoning of things, but not as much time.
40s and 50's- Family time. Time is spent on family and work. Not a lot of time to study politics, very little time to leave the house, much less for political volunteering.
60's + - The world is fucked. Its always been fucked, its always going to be fucked, just do the best you can and try to take care of the people you care about.
I thought this was an interesting breakdown, and possibly pretty accurate?
