"Young," of course, is a state of mind, not of body. The common "wisdom" is that we tend to grow more conservative as we grow older. Our ideals for what should be, so the thought goes, are swapped, gradually, for the acceptance of what is. Of finding a niche and being comfortable in it—and not wanting those young idealists to shift us out of it.
Well, sod that for a lark.
I may grow more pragmatic as I grow older, but I still refuse to believe that progress has an end-point; that the world will reach a state where it can't be improved. (And even given the possibility of such a Utopia, we certainly aren't anywhere near it yet.)
Pete Seeger didn't; why should I?
He will be missed.
