> Personally, I think its just as annoying to see Boomers blamed for everything too. Yes, they're older, but a lot of them are just like you and me.

I'll just leave this here...

Explain how. Because so far, I'm the one with the facts. All you have so far are bad-faith questions and shallow insults.

This might help you, too.

I would spend my time roasting this guy but there a book that does it for me

It's Amazon so he'll have to get a millennial to figure out that darn computer machine for him to read it though. https://www.amazon.com/dp/0316395781/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_IrLPCbHCV00PJ

It's partly a human thing, but I think it's gotten especially bad with the Boomers.

If you haven't already, I highly suggest you check out A Generation of Sociopaths: How the Baby Boomers Betrayed America

Try to get past the title, since the author tries quite hard to build an objective, data-driven case for how Baby Boomers have stood out in a fairly bad way compared to both their parents and children.

A Generation of Sociopaths: How the Baby Boomers Betrayed America:

> In A Generation of Sociopaths, Gibney examines the disastrous policies of the most powerful generation in modern history, showing how the Boomers ruthlessly enriched themselves at the expense of future generations. > > Acting without empathy, prudence, or respect for facts--acting, in other words, as sociopaths--the Boomers turned American dynamism into stagnation, inequality, and bipartisan fiasco. The Boomers have set a time bomb for the 2030s, when damage to Social Security, public finances, and the environment will become catastrophic and possibly irreversible--and when, not coincidentally, Boomers will be dying off. > > Gibney argues that younger generations have a fleeting window to hold the Boomers accountable and begin restoring America.

Why should the generation that received infrastructure that was paid for and not maintained, inexpensive post-secondary education, inexpensive housing, job security and other employment benefits that aren't as readily available today, receive another generational transfer of wealth?

Good book on the topic

They’re a generation of sociopaths. Meaning anti-society. You may enjoy this book:

It doesn’t follow either. It’s nonsensical to blame anyone but the last generation. Ffs you can’t blame millennials, were not even running the show. In 2016 there were 50 baby boomers to 1 millennial. That’s 2%. The previous generation really are a generation of sociopaths

I don't think it was a study. I can't remember specifically where I read it, but it might have been this book: https://toptalkedbooks.com/amzn/0316395781

Nope. Boomers still in control. From about 1980 to probably 2025. Those fuckers aren’t going to give up their power to bleed this country dry until they’re in the ground. And they have the numbers to do it.

Read this book about the boomers by a boomer. I couldn’t get through more than 2 pages at a time without wanting to go all dexter on the entire generation.

I suggest checking out A Generation of Sociopaths: How the Baby Boomers Betrayed America .

It actually makes a fairly decent case towards this. A generation born to pretty much every benefit of American Society, and how the generations that followed are the first to say, yeah, we might actually be worse off than our parents. When you look at when this country started to stagnate in terms of skyrocketing health care costs, college tuition, state budgets (and federal budgets) collapsing, and even the pettiness of the bickering between politicians, it pretty much begins when the Boomers took power. And this isn't a Democrat nor Republican issue. Both have been guilty towards the downward spiral of our country, and it shouldn't be about which party is going to destroy us first, rather, how can we start to improve as a society.

Generational sociopathy.

So I've been listening to A Generation of Sociopaths . It's kind of tangentially related to UP in that it touches on NIMBYism and the failure to invest in infrastructure.

Generally, it's a worrying book. So, yeah...
