I agree with your idea and that's what we do. We think we're so clever and classless and free but our thinking/behaviour is generational. I mean like computers: Yeah they get better with each generation but they're the same basics inside.
Another way to look at 'generational' is to think 'cultural'. There is a sense where, altho we are a new generation, we are programmed with mostly the same info as our forebearers were.
Remember the bible quote. Exodus: "There's nothing new under the sun".
And recently the Turks have returned the museum known as Haga Sophia once more into a mosque.
So it's like Neil Young sang: "Round and round and round we spin, to weave a wall to hem us in ..."
(PS: A kind member has pointed out the bible quote is from Ecclesiastes.)
