    Some are, many aren't. Many of the mean ones were mean young people so not much has changed.

    I happen to think that your all to Hell. You seem to forget that as a person grows older they are not as fit, (physically or mentally) as they once were;

    They have also seen a hell of a lot of lives experiences, and to a great extent this has affected their points of view. It is inevitable that these experienced will affect their mental responses to certain situations.

    When younger one can easily brush off circumstances that seem to be insignificant. The same situation when older (and more vulnerable) makes one considerably more cautions.

    Wait just a few more years, and you will begin to understand far more fully.

    A mean person does not like spending money especially on other persons.That is the general explanation. When it comes to old person they may not have enough money to spend .Generally such people do not like to share not only wealth but their knowledge know how and what ever they have. Most of them like to be left alone which is treated as being mean by others.

    without meaning to be mean,

    they are mean because they are stupid.

    every will of a dead old person is a proof for that.

    Absolutely no evidence for that assertion.

    Young folk can equally be that way.
