The Beat Generation is a group of American post-WWII writers who came to prominence in the 1950s, as well as the cultural phenomena that they both documented and inspired. Central elements of "Beat" culture included experimentation with drugs and alternative forms of sexuality, an interest in Eastern religion, a rejection of materialism, and the idealizing of exuberant, unexpurgated means of expression and being. Even still the Generation is in motion.

-1; I realize that we are here to help people understand English but I am not comfortable with the idea of you copying paragraphs from Wikipedia and asking about every detail. – MrHen Apr 29 '11 at 20:08
That being said, thanks for asking them as separate questions. :) – MrHen Apr 29 '11 at 20:18
Anyway, I'm a bit puzzled by the correctness of that sentence. It should either be Even so, or just Still. Even still is just plain horrible. – nico Apr 29 '11 at 21:24
@nico: "Even still" is okay as far as I know. I would use a comma: "Even still, they are in motion." Or even now, even today. – MrHen Apr 29 '11 at 21:28

That this generation is still changing, still as open to new ideas as they were in the 1950s.
