RE: The Boomer Question
The 'Boomers' are, I think, a symptom of the decline of the West, as opposed to a cause, much like mass immigration is a symptom of the same decline and not a cause; though many, myself included, for years believed it was the other way round.

The key question is, 'What is the root cause of this decline?'.

It goes much deeper and further back than the layman probably realises. The Protestant Reformation contributed greatly to this decline, for it was a major revolution that undermined the solid, static, hierarchical order that had existed for at least 1000 years. When a revolution is ushered in it becomes incredibly hard to control the forces that have been unleashed. Once the ruling authority has been cast down then all authority becomes vulnerable to the rebellious, selfish spirits previously restrained. The revolt against the Catholic Church of the 16th Century opened the damn of rebellious spirit, the animus focused on 'becoming' rather than 'being'; over the centuries these spirits flooded all corners of society and swept away remaining vestiges of authority, whether it be in the school or the home.

Capitalism is the result of European man's shift from 'being' to 'becoming', which itself was a consequence of the Reformation. Due to the puritanical leanings of its ancestors the American possesses a restless spirit, conducive to money-making but not so conducive to happiness or stability, as evidenced by the American Revolution. Wherever we look we are harassed by advertisements and social media that encourage us to believe we should be unhappy and discontented with our present 'being', and that only by focusing on 'becoming' something or someone else can we be happy. "If I buy this house in that neighbourhood maybe I'll become happier, or "If I buy this product it will surely increase my happiness". I suspect many men in this sphere are aware of how large, predatory corporations use this technique to make money out of us, but we must not forget that the average man has not realised this, and so he is almost perpetually caught in the artificial cycle created for him. We shouldn't scorn him, rather, we should pity him and seek to strengthen his resolve against the diabolical forces which act upon his person.

The boomer is a symptom of a profound disruption in the metaphysics of western civilisation. By considering the boomer's deficiencies we furnish ourselves with knowledge that will help us tackle the quandary we face.

The Boomers Ruined Everything

Precautionary Rule One:

The Atlantic and Time are almost identical. They both cater to a certain demographic maintaining its own identity, whether or not what's said in them has anything to do with the truth. The only difference is that Time accomplishes this appeal principally in pictures on its front cover (comedically, in the case of Trump's "Meltdown" and "Total Meltdown" covers; disturbingly, in the case of "You" being named Person Of The Year) while The Atlantic chooses mediocre writers and 10,000 words. Consider the medium accordingly. And the largest problem with both is not what they say, it's how they make you see yourself. It's that they teach you how to want.

Precautionary Rule Two:

The principal marketing demographic is and always has been the 18-44 range.

I had this one at home. RIP Mort Drucker and possibly Don Martin

The difference between these images and The Atlantic's take on the problem is that back in the 60s it was the elders who had the disposable income to buy these magazines and the kids were being marketed as the threat.

If you think the majority of the Baby Boomers are going to be retiring on an income higher than that enjoyed by Wai Ling Chen the Mandarian toilet scrubber working the men's room in Beijing, I have a portfolio of public pension assets I'd like to sell you. The Boomers are entering their seventies. The period in which they could have bought anything contained in an advertisement that runs in The Atlantic has passed. For this crowd it's adult diapers, Warferin, copper bracelets for arthritis, and waiting on that fiftysomething hedge fund owner to swoop in and buy the 40-year-old half-ruin of a house they've been clinging to as their retirement fund. This has rather wider implications in something called hyperinflation, but I'm trying not to go gestalt here so I'll leave that to one side.

(Hey, don't take it from me about The Atlan. It proudly advertises how it worked with advertisers on making "relevant" stories.

Quote:PBS tapped The Atlantic to raise awareness for and generate interest in the sophomore season of its historical drama, Mercy Street. By leveraging overlooked and forgotten aspects of the Civil War—the show's setting—the campaign, with a custom article as its centerpiece, resonated with fans of history and entertainment alike and the inquisitive Atlantic audience.
)

Which is a roundabout way of saying you are being manipulated to find someone to hate. More importantly, though, what the System - and I am not talking about the triple brackets, or anybody specific - wants is that you do nothing about all this. They just want your rage, and they want your attention, and then they want you to go away and buy something ... which you will, because the advertisers and journalists are not fools, their rags would not have lasted this long without them instinctively getting the truth of the triune brain. The same imperative that caused you to go reading The Atlantic is the same imperative that will get you taking your weekly pay check and telling yourself you're unplugged.

That's the point of reporting on it in The Atlantic, if you want riots, lynchings, uprisings, Occupations and other assorted uninformed crowds you call Twitter and George Soros.

So bear all of that in mind when you read these articles. They have a certain purpose in revealing the set of mind of a certain demographic and the priorities of a certain class of advertiser, but if you're looking for some sort of Platonic ideal or truth in here, you might as well read the Victoria's Secret catalogues. At least you can sometimes spot the airbrushing. Read the article again and you'll see all the standard liberal markers: down on the GI Bill, down on racism, down on most issues that the average Google employee thinks makes a difference in the world. They give the audience a glimpse of hope without -- and note this carefully -- setting out what the solutions are, because they're unpalatable politically (and journalistically).

The only thread I am inclined to draw out of this article is that, taken at its face, it verifies Nassim Taleb's ideas: the more you regulate, the more fragility you install within the system. The more you make it vulnerable to a large shock. Paradoxically, the more you try and make a system safe, the more vulnerable you make it to outside shocks and unforeseen circumstances, because unintended consequences multiply on one another. This concept has limits, and that's the key: what works at a local level will not work at a national level, hence why, to paraphrase someone, you are a libertarian Federally, a Republican at the state level, a Democrat at the local government level, and a socialist amongst your family and friends.

RE: The Boomer Question
Yea its pretty silly to lump everyone born in a 20 year period together. A gay Puerto Rican Atheist from NYC and a White Christian farm boy from Iowa are going to share little just because they were born in the same year.

Demographics of the generations are much more telling.

The truth is, divide and conquer is the most successful game ever played.

I doubt there will ever be a time it it not used, and the majority of people don't fall for it. Blacks against whites, male vs. female, rich vs. poor and now young vs. old.

There is definitely a boomer mind-set, and they definitely deserve scorn as a demographic, but it's wise to remember that most of them weren't 'individually' responsible. Most people will take a bite of the apple if they can get away with it.

But you can't get away with it forever, everyone pays the price eventually. Whether it's in diapers and warfarin or just having some 3rd world 'carer' coming in and slapping you about when they should be wiping your arse.

Boomers are an easy target. But remember, they have as much disdain for their 'failed' offspring as well, who never got such great jobs, never got to be able to afford one single house, let alone three, never got to own their own car except under crippling debt...

It's a complex system, economics. Apparently people who study physics as a system do well in it. I can believe it. I'm an idiot myself, but then again I was never taught about 'economics' at school, or by my parents.

But as per that Soph vid I just posted, I've also come to believe that 'bankers' are evil and added them to the list with journos and politicos on. My boomer parents failed me in a massive way, there is no doubt about that, but I still don't like it when (((people))) try to manipulate me and pull my heart-strings. For (((people))) read (((anyone in a position of power))) that has the ability to not take responsibility.

This is what I have come to truly understand:

With great power, comes no responsibility.

See the banking crash and never having to say you are sorry.

I'm a man severely limited by his not so massive intelligence. And also limited by a less than great education. Not to mention my own personal lack of not seeing the importance in all of this a lot sooner so I could have at least made some kind of effort to understand.

These things are made obtuse and opaque by design. But some kind of economic education is a grand necessity. For all.

I don't believe it's really possible to fully understand the whole boomer paradigm without one.

But then again, I do know when someone pisses down my back and tells me it's raining.

I'll look after my boomer parents even though they failed me. I'll even help to look after other boomers too even though they failed me as well in a wider sense.

We sure are inheriting a right shit show that is for sure. And the longer it takes for a reckoning, the greater that reckoning will be.

Life hasn't been great for us Gen-X'ers. Not as good as it could have been anyway. For most of us at least. But I don't envy what the generations to come will have to traverse.

But it's probably not just a boomer phenomenon. Just read any history book. I don't think the old have ever truly cared about the young, further than getting them born, raised, then kicked out the nest to go and mow someone else's lawn.

Child rearing must really take it out of you, and I think most parents are glad to see the back of theirs by the end of it. Why the fuck would they care about anyone else's kids in a wider societal sense?

It's every man for himself in this world. Boomers are part of the problem. But they aren't the problem. Just like the jews are not the problem.

So it's not so cut and dried. The propagandists on either side would like you to believe it is. That makes a final solution a lot easier to sell.

To paraphrase Paracelsus' last paragraph: we don't really care about other human beings extended beyond our immediate families. And it's not like many of us even have a 'tribe' any more, is it?

As a race we have come too far too quickly. Progress has been too fast. It seems to me we really don't want to solve this problem that has plagued humanity since we first came swinging out of the trees and on to the savannah.

How can we alleviate human suffering as much as possible, and share our resources in a meaningful way so a majority of us can be happy?

Until that question is even asked, all this stuff is academic. Until then it's the same old game: every man for himself. That attitude also exists in nuclear families as well if you didn't know.

It's surprising that Gen-X didn't rebel more than it did. But I guess by the time they realised they'd been had, those old drug and alcohol addictions would have really kicked in and they were too powerless to do anything about it. Except hate mum and dad a little bit more. Always taught to internalise their problems rather than finding external solutions for them, I also think a certain amount of 'learned helplessness' is at play as well. But it would explain them taking things out on themselves more than lashing out at the real culprits. But even we are getting on now, and anger can only be maintained for so long before it takes a real toll on the body and mind complex.

But no, a lot of the boomers aren't so well off. They've been playing a game of cat and mouse with the financial grim reaper. Do I spend it now and have fun, or do I spend it later (but possibly be dead by that point) and my bastard ungrateful children will get their undeserving hands on my just rewards. Tough one!

Some of them have calculated less than perfectly, shall we say.

Either way, you can't take it with you when you go, but then again, there isn't that much left of it anyway, for the average boomer.

You would have thought they would have put some kind of structure in place for their old age retirement, but no, they were too busy having fun, fun, fun, until their daddy took their tv away...

Just my ill-informed observations. Don't take them too seriously.

See my point about 'education' in the post I just made (before seeing yours).

You are right of course, but it's not so simple, and nor should we be so brutal and black and white in our judgement. Imho.

It is the state's job to educate the population, not "themselves". You can't trust people to start picking up textbooks and learning trades. If the state is doing a piss-poor job of educating, then it's on purpose.

What you just stated is so bizarre on so many levels that I do not even know where to start. The original purpose of the state was two-fold: to protect the citizenry from foreign invasion and to provide police and fire protection. Almost everything else is superfluous -- and is ultimately designed for control of the citizenry.

People successfully learned trades themselves, or through apprenticeship, for hundreds of years. I myself have learned far more myself than I ever did by obtaining three university degrees -- and obtained far better quality through my own studies. Unfortunately, a university degree is now considered an entry key to many fields, which again is more de facto state control.

Of course the state is doing "a piss-poor job of educating" children on purpose, including purposely hiring ignorant teachers. The purpose of the State is control, which is why you ideally do not want it involved in more than protecting the citizenry from foreign invasion and providing police and fire protection. Modern society is proof of the State's failure. Ninety percent of all problems suffered by individuals stem from their not acting responsibly. They want the State to spoon feed them education and to tell them what to think. The State happily obliges, turns them into wage slaves, and taxes them into poverty.

Failure? When is the last time you've been outside?

Our roads, highways, infrastructure are all functioning. I wonder who erected those? Electric grid works pretty good. People aren't cannibalizing each other. I know on the internet it's "muh we're all doomed" and "muh free markets!" but the real world is quite different.

The state serves a lot more purpose than "protecting the citizenry" (whatever the hell that means).

This is what failure looks like. It is merely one example of many.

You will be . . . sorry. How many people, or businesses, have you ever seen successfully run deficits like that and survive financially? The answer is none.

How many countries have ever financially survived such sustained deficits without tremendous social and economic upheaval? The answer is none.

Not a single one. In all of human history.

Yes, theoretically it can be avoided if politicians agreed to both raise taxes and cut social welfare spending. But the odds of that happening is almost zero.

Our society is so dumbed-down that even the obvious is now controversial. There will be a Great Reset. Most will suffer. Some will thrive.

RE: The Boomer Question
It's nice if there's a state that gives a shit about educating its people. What if that state is degenerate, corrupt and sees a certain sector as serfs to be kept down? Education belongs to families and communities. You think the Amish trust the state to teach them to raise barns? You think the medieval Jews who rose to prominence as gold or diamond crafters got a government-sponsored apprenticeship?

Failure? When is the last time you've been outside?

Our roads, highways, infrastructure are all functioning. I wonder who erected those? Electric grid works pretty good. People aren't cannibalizing each other. I know on the internet it's "muh we're all doomed" and "muh free markets!" but the real world is quite different.

The state serves a lot more purpose than "protecting the citizenry" (whatever the hell that means).

The infrastructure is crumbling very quickly. Roads are in horrible conditions, to the point it is becoming a topic more popular than the weather. All I hear people talk about is all the potholes and the meaningless excuses the politicians give for our roads looking like a war zone. The real reason is all the wealth floated to the top and stays there and everyone else, who isn't a billionaire, is treated like cattle and worked to the bone.

The rate things are getting worse, it certainly will not be much longer. The power grid is very outdated, to the point I broke down and bought a small generator because I am sick of losing power every other month. The cities are becoming urban sprawls with people moving an hour trip away from work just to get away from the growing violence. People want to move back to small towns to get away from it, but there are no jobs in these small towns.

I personally don't know one man who has lived in the USA for their entire life and is over 35 years old that thinks this country has a safe future. That is how obviously bad things are, and I am not talking about red pill Roosh posters. I mean just the average guy trying to work in a cubicle and take his kids to soccer practice in the evening.

The globalists are extremely prolific at milking public resources dry but you really need to dig on your own to find out about it.

They usually have some public official fall guys who take the blame or a gaslit into taking responsibility if it ever comes to light at all.

We're talking about all kinds of shady financial deals that are marketed as beneficial to local government entities while actually bleeding them dry with usury or straight up legalized theft, to mass privatization and deregulation and we all know how that turns out for average joe...

Former public housing studios that looks straight from some soviet shithole for 350k in London anyone?

Commiefornia electric crisis anyone?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California...ity_crisis

Any place where the globalists congregate generally quickly fall into despair with locals wondering what the hell happened as the globalists always operate in the shadows with tight media control and tight government official control if they aren't globalists themselves.

The globalists are like a tribe of power hungry BPD women that will stop at nothing to get what they want, all while maintaining a facade of respectability.

Just like letting a BPD woman into your life, there is no winning with globalists no matter how much you try to appease them.

I'm pretty sure in a decade any real information about their crimes will be washed off google and history will be re-written as usual.

To get back to the boomer question:

Any generation has propaganda / media outlets tailored to them that the previous generation barely follows while the new generation laps it up on a daily basis.

Just like my parents, I never watch movies and don't consume any kind of media except newspaper websites once a while, so I'm barely informed about the ever escalating degeneracy pushed as normal to the new generation, which still has the thirst for media and fake reality provided by it.

This is like praising the generation of Italians who lost in Ethiopia. In the context of humanity it was a tragedy, but in the context of warfare Vietnam was a pathetic defeat. Boomers were not a warrior generation and the Viet Cong exposed and humiliated them.

The boomers achieved nothing in warfare, culture or technological development (someone listed their inventions on Vox's blog and it was schocking how little they actually invented/discovered).

Worse than that, they didn't even preserve what was handed down to them, but instead drained every last drop from the civilisation they inherited out of pure greed, leaving a bloodless lifeless corpse to their descendents.

The final death from the Boomer's solipsism will be multiples of Vietnam.

Boomers lost Vietnam because of a limited ROE, the anti-war movement, and terrible planning... usual suspects behind that. If it weren't for the anti-war movement, then there is 0 chance that the US would have lost/withdrew.

This is the real tragedy. We should have been colonizing Mars by now.

All that said, I know the real culprit. But I generally don't like boomers because they have 0 awareness.
