"It is pretty easy.
People who are young don't make money, and like to think people making money owe them something. Or they have just finished a degree and are still brainwashed from their professors.
The change starts happening once you start making money and you realize that the fruits of your labor shouldn't be given to lazy bums."
I would agree with both of these statements in general. You can afford to be idealistic when you have nothing to lose.
Do you think that being young and having to fend for yourself through college makes you more conservative, or does it make you want to give back to others like yourself?
