Is it hard for older people to get along in modern day society?

Eric Asked: Is it hard for older people to get along in modern day society?

Think about it. I have a uncle whos a WW2 veteran, hes in a retirement home connected to the VA in NYC where its mostly older veterans(World War 2, Korean War and a few other wars(Mostly Vietnam Veterans who are not old and in theyre early 60s, but are there for "other" reasons, that require living assistance).

When I visit him, I see all of the guys sitting around, playing poker, having beer, and watching the news in the tv room. They talk politics, and I can tell they just wonder about society today. I am in my late 40s and when I talk to some of these guys about politics, they actually make sense. Some of them don't even know what a computer is. I couldn't imagine being that old and growing up thru so many different generations and having to see what society is today.
