Which you boomers never fully committed to, that's not my generation's fault.

Just like with the space race Americans love to take credit for something the Russians did first.

Quote:
Now you want us to disappear so you can save the earth from the scourge of Global Warming and Donald Trump. Hey, I have an idea- instead of trashing an entire generation, a few who may even agree with you on some points, why don't you go out there and do something about it? At least vote for Bernie Sander's sake!
Voting isn't enough and it never was.

Quote:
Anyway, at sixty, I can sleep at night knowing that thirty or forty years from now, your younguns are going to be condemning your generation for the evils you have brought upon them and they'll be wishing you went away.

Because, that's the way the human race works, Hercs.
It doesn't have to be, "you get more conservative when you're older" is an excuse people make for closing their minds. It's not a biological reality so much as a personal failure.

I grew up in an incredibly conservative culture in the bible belt, when I was 18 years old I voted for Bush, and yet the older I get the more radicalized I've become and I've never been to college or any such "indoctrination camps" so how did it happen? I chose not to accept the status quo and not blame young people for all of society's problems, that's the mistake every prior generation makes and it's why systematic corruption remains unchallenged.

I think hating an entire generation is silly so no I don't hate all boomers, not as individuals, I mean I used to be notorious for being one of this forum's most obnoxious classic rock fans and I still mostly listen to older music from that generation, many of my favorite artists are boomers and I do acknowledge that.

Do I think boomers deserve all of the blame for everything turning to sh*t? No not really. But this was a generation that had more advantages and privileges than any generation before or since, boomers hyped themselves up to be the ones who were going to change everything only to get in line with the status quo once the 60s were over and elect Reagan and now all they do is complain about younger generations not being content as socioeconomic problems that greatly effect us like income inequality and climate change continue to get worse.

So it's easy to see why boomers have become our favorite punching bag. Is hating the boomers really that productive? No. But my generation takes whatever catharsis we can get. Boomers love to dish it out on us but they can't take it when we bite back. I suggest asking your doctor if copium is right for you.

You're right on some fronts. We did benefit from the sacrifices our parents and grandparents made. They didn't want us to suffer through the depression and wars that they did, so yeah, we were kind of spolied. That's why you might shake your head at how Jerry Rubin went from radical Yippie to Reaganesque stockbroker.

I'm a late boomer that grew up in the suburbs so I missed much of the Vietnam/Civil Rights protests as I came of age. We, as a whole, got caught up with the get rich dreams of Reaganomics. I also went to a high school where the majority of students were conservative to the point where they thought the black students always got all the breaks. Incredibly enough, we didn't have a KKK club.

Somehow, I've managed to stay fairly liberal, even progressive, as I've gotten older. But, I've also become more pragmatic realizing it takes more than a few protests to change anything. So I vote for what I can realistically get.

That doesn't mean you should give up. Some things have improved as time goes on and there is no reason that things won't get better in the future.

But, we have to keep going after it. That, ultimately, is our failure as the boomer generation. Maybe your generation will have better success, I hope so.

I hope so too, but I'm not what you'd call a fountain of optimism.

Oh well. I'm glad we've settled this peacefully, I wasn't quite sure where this conversation was gonna go.

No worries. I learned from my last time here not to take things so personally.

If anyone still wants to cancel me though I'm fine with that, I deserve it.

I mean I listened to Rush Limbaugh in high school so my house is pure glass.

I made an epic homage to your bald chicks thread years back that focused on forearms.
