    He’s out of line, but he’s right. Seems like I say that about our boy more often than not lately.

    I keep waiting for the teacher to ask “Does anybody have any questions about what I just said?”, but I don’t suppose that’s going to happen, is it?

    Generations are mostly arbitrary designations so saying something specific about one makes no sense.

    Clever wordplay.

    Do I hear someone blaming the Boomers again ? Give it a rest “Other Generations”. Suck it up and take your share of the blame.

    Caulfield nailed it again. A circular question but seeing history as a mobius strip. And, yes, I know it’s a 2 dimension construct, but isn’t that a description of looking back from a narrow perspective?

    Every generation has to play the cards they’re delt.

    It seems every generation works to make life better for their children… and then begrudges them for having it.

    The children who turned out smarter, better and more fundamentally moral, wish only for their children to not turn out the same.

    The one that drives me crazy is when people my age complain about “participation trophies” when the kids never ASKED for participation trophies. Their parents decided they should get them – possibly so the parents wouldn’t feel bad that the kid lost. We made them take participation trophies, and then mocked them for the rest of their lives for getting them.

    If the youngster is speaking of the generation he seems to be, I would direct him to information as to the state of said world before we came along; our lament is less about decline and more about the fact that some of us have not been on the side of goodness and light (looking at you, Trump, McConnell, Gingrich, Bohner, Bush II, Cheney, et al), and so the massive progress we have driven is still less than it could/should have been.

    So now’s your chance, kiddos – pick up the torch of the ’60s and run with it! Fulfill our dream!

    I would say the offspring of the greatest generation is mostly to blame, as they listened to all the communist professors who fled Hitler and hated the happiness of the general American people. They thought capitalism was evil even though they themselves had never lived un communism.

    But I have to hate kids these days! They remind me that I’m old and I’m going to die soon, and that’s just not fair!

    Each generation thinks that they have the answers to improve the world, and thinks their parents were clueless, reckless, people. I’ve seen too many clickbait articles supposedly describing boomers. Many are plain insulting. Just wait until the author of those articles hit their 60s. Oh wait, they are probably written by AI.

    The older I get, the more I think generational differences and conflicts are ridiculous. We need to be more cooperative. If anyone needs to be the ‘bigger person’, it’s everyone.

    No more rude than to ask who raised the generation who was most influential while it was getting that way.

    As Nathaniel Branden used to say when one of his patients went on too long about how their upbringing traumatized them, “Your parents had parents too.”

    FWIW, Joe Biden is the only U.S. president from the Silent Generation. Maybe that’s why he often whispers.
