I realize what you’re saying. I think the ice cream salesman part is a stretch. The demand for that has dropped for numerous reasons. A big difference between now and then is that there were a larger number of union jobs and it was before the “culture wars” so people were less likely to vote against there own economic interests. I just think there is a fatalism at the core of these posts that I fear will work against you guys in the long run. Get organized, vote for people who support living wages and healthcare as a right. And the 70’s sucked. Our quality of life now is much higher. Imo. And I finally bought my first house at 48, it’s not ideal, but I never gave up.
