    Without disputing that Oprah sounds (and probably is) out of touch and elitist (this is the self-aggrandizing talk show host that gives away blenders to screaming mobs, right?) the decision to frame this as an issue of chronological age is both ageist and elitist.

    Decentralized protest movements are not a new invention. Just because current versions utilize modern technology (which some of us old folks also manage to use quite well) doesn’t mean it’s a 2015 phenomenon or that it doesn’t cross all generations.

    Whatever movement you are involved with and however you are attempting to grow it, alienating potential supporters with generalizations of this type are sure to be a barrier to success.
