That is crazy. So, the media picks up the single sound bite from one elderly man who is goaded into yelling "White Power," but it ignores all the unrelenting foul-mouthed diabolical cursing from the other side.
This characterization slanders an entire generation due to the decisions of a small segment of the population that wields disproportionate economic power. During my career I’ve witnessed the wholesale neo-colonization of American firms and deliberate knowledge transfer in the service of greed. When all is said and done, workers generally have no control of decisions executives make. Most Americans would not support the wholesale export of their industries and strategic technologies to foreign competitors. Intergenerational animus merely serves to conceal and distract from the control oligarchs wield in American society.And then the boomers shipped all the middle class manufacturing jobs off to the very same Chi Coms in the 90s because they wanted cheap crap from Wal-Mart.
You’ve made a lot of good points here. I would add that perhaps due to the difficult experiences of the Silent Generation, as parents, many wanted to spare their Boomer children the hardships they had endured and the projected trauma they received from being parented by the Greatest Generation. Also, one should not underestimate the powerful conditioning force of mass media that was unleashed upon Boomers. The development of the dark art of advertising had an overwhelmingly corrupting influence on the Boomer generation at a time when radical feminist and Marxist ideologies were also gaining pernicious footholds.Falling into the trap of generational warfare is silly. The Boomers are different from the generations past and future in only one respect - the time in which they were born, a fact which they had no control over. If the average Millennial had been born in 1950 instead of 1990 he would have made exactly the same choices the average Boomer did. We are products of our environment and our genetics. The genes haven't changed that much in such a short amount of time, it's all environmental conditioning. We are no more wise or moral than the Boomers as a group, and thus have no right to judge them as a group. They are fallible human beings, the same as us. No man gets to choose the time and place of his birth, he simply makes the best decisions he can at the time with the options he has in front of him.
Also, it's inaccurate to try to blame the destruction of the country on the Boomers. The destruction was well underway while they were still children. The Boomers weren't the ones who signed the Hart-Cellar Act into law in 1965, for example. Nor were they the ones pushing the sexual revolution in the 60's. In fact, the Boomers were the first generation to get really screwed by the cultural subversion of the West. This is why so many Boomers have psychological problems, addictions and broken marriages. They were lied to and propagandized heavily by the elite and it fucked a lot of them up for life.
Look at who raised the Boomers. The so-called "Greatest Generation". Again, they were no different than us, they just faced different circumstances. The Greatest Generation grew up in the Depression then went through WWII. They were completely traumatized and in the aftermath simply wanted to live out the rest of their lives in peace and whatever prosperity they could enjoy. They also placed a lot of trust in the government based on their experiences in the Depression and the war. And so in a lot of ways they were sort of asleep at the wheel while the cultural saboteurs really got going in the 50s (the Communist infiltration) and the 60s (the sexual revolution). It's like they were too tired to give a shit after what they'd been through in their youth, and who could blame them?
History is what it is. It would have played out exactly the same if it had been any of living us back then. Save your hatred for the agents of darkness walking among us today, they aren't hard to find, they don't even bother to hide themselves anymore.
LOL Zoomielenials don't watch Movies they LARP on Video Games in their Boomer Parents Basements.One characteristic of Boomers is their myopia about how younger generations look at the military. Between the last 25 years of fighting wars solely for Greater Israel and general lack of respect for authority and uniforms, non-Boomers interest in military stories has ebbed to its lowest point IMO. Yet Boomers carry on thinking that every American gets a tear in their eye for Old Glory. I have heard boomers waxing elegiac about military stories and assuming that "this could be made into a great movie!". But who would watch it? No one. But they come from an era that still had a thread of the military fighting for us and Muh Freedoms. Even when it comes to the so-called 9-11 first responders, the attitude of most Gen X (and lower) is, "Who gives a f_?".
The only chance of a revival of war stories and hero stories and patriotism is if the Modern Military starts patrolling the world more heavily on behalf of butt sex than they already are. Then a few of the woke Zoomers might watch that sh%t. And they might try to pull a "We're the Patriots now, bigot!" gambit.
I'm in between, being in my mid 40's. My parents were boomers. My parents had it much easier than I did, and I had it much easier than the men in their 20's will have it. In fact, if I was in my 20's now I don't think I would make it. The competition, the stress, the expense, it is so overwhelming. I would much rather give up and live in my parents basement playing video games than trying to fight the impossible uphill battle men in their 20's face. For those men on this forum in their 20's, I am not black pilling, I am just given and honest assessment of my own limitations. My hats off to all you men trying to make it and do it the right way, you are better men than myself.LOL Zoomielenials don't watch Movies they LARP on Video Games in their Boomer Parents Basements.
To those millennials and zoomers espousing generational hate, the day will come in your lives when you are blamed for destroying the USA by electing Biden. What, the election was stolen? It's been a few months and that idea has almost vanished from the zeitgeist- at least according to those who record the zeitgeist. You will be hated for what you have done, because history will blame you despite your own personal actions.
Not to mention that such kids are actually making money by streaming themselves playing video games in their parents' basements. Some actually make pretty decent money.I'm in between, being in my mid 40's. My parents were boomers.

I think back on how much my parents had to work and what they could purchase with their income. I will never live that quality of life, no matter how many more years I work 7 days a week. I watch sitcoms from the 1980's and 90's to sort of zone out of this awful world and have a sense of remembering my childhood. My God at how easy life would have been back then as an adult. Just beyond something I could ever comprehend.
With all of this said, I have worked 7 days a week for over 20 years straight. I have lived poorer than most college students during this time, taking all my savings and investing it as diversified as I possibly could. After 20 years I don't have enough to have a family, and the way things are going in this country, another 5 years of 7 days a work will not make it either. Especially not with the inflation and social degradation we are undergoing right now.
Should I quit and give up? I don't know. I am considering it. I am exhausted from the nonstop work, the no enjoyment of life, and the only consistent in my life is waking up and seeing the country get worse every single day. Would I even want to bring kids into this awful country? My kids would likely be white, would they even be given a chance? I highly doubt it. And all my savings would be taken by the tax man before they could inherit it.
Heh, after typing all this out, maybe I regret I didn't just stay in my parents basement playing video games. Maybe the Zoomers are on to something.
Just trying to give you perspective from a man that can relate to both generations. The boomers were good people, but many don't seem to fully grasp just how bad things are right now in the west.
I don't even know if I would call it the "easy road" as much as just the smartest decision.Not to mention that such kids are actually making money by streaming themselves playing video games in their parents' basements. Some actually make pretty decent money.
And the best part is, those kids don't have to keep current for their jobs by constantly reading books or attending conferences to stay on the "cutting edge" of tech like a lot of white collar jobs involve. I don't blame them for taking the easy road out. Our economy is a broken mess, and does not incentivize good behavior or the development of civilization-maintaining skills.
