What makes young people so attracted to social liberalism and mass immigration?

Now, legal desegregation in the United States is widely accepted enough that the right tries to cast the leaders of the civil rights movement as conservative heroes. Once your desires are accepted by the Establishment, you'll become Establishment.The establishment is moving left due to the influx of immigrants the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, etc., so the young people will be raised with what was then liberal as centrist, so there will be more liberals.

Meh, where I live young people are less left wing and more right liberals, "yay free market" type whereas older people are more leftist. One of the major concerns for leftist parties is that not enough young men are joining in.
ThirdTerm- do you honestly think Churchill was a liberal in the sense of the word we often use it in today?

Churchill was known to switch his polices faster than the wind changes. I did mention that he moved to the Liberals for economic reasons, but it looks like his economic policies were the ones that he would change around the most. There's barely anything politically liberal about him that I can think of.
The "colloquial" sense, as you call it, might well be considered the real sense because its the one everyone knows it and uses it as.
But what do you mean by the "actual" meaning, and how would you relate it to Churchill?
