Sometimes that seems to be appropriate. Maybe when one hears the same naive drivel from the same person too many times. Ans yes, at 74 I've had a lifetime to observe what works and what never does. I've also spent considerably more time studying history and running larger organizations. I commend your enthusiasm, but I also remember how I thought when I hadn't yet done my homework and really learned anything. The young (including myself when I was young) never realize how much they don't know. Hell, at 74, I'm still just scratching the surface and keep learning new things every day.
