Roberta Lincoln in 1968

Roberta Lincoln described the confusion of her generation to Gary Seven: raised in the aftermath of the Great Depression, World War II, and the increasingly volatile Cold War, she feared the Earth would be destroyed in a rain of atomic bombs before she was thirty. The repressive environment of fear instilled in them in the 1950s and the tragic deaths of hopeful figures like John F. Kennedy led them to believe that established figures of authority had been lying to them and didn't know what they were doing. Their reaction gave birth to youth counterculture, such as rock and roll, seeking alternatives to the lives their parents had lived. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth")
