I was born in 1983. This puts me at the beginning of the Millennial generation, or at the tail end of Generation X, depending on my mood and outlook at the moment you ask. I firmly believe, though, that the Boomers have systematically destroyed our country, then have tried to blame the generations after them for the decay.
Baby Boomers like to make fun of Millennials, and say that they make excuses for why life doesn’t go the way they expect it to. They need to consider looking at the mirror; they are our parents, and they have created the current world.
Take a look at responses that are more nuanced and well-thought than my knee-jerk reaction could ever be:
- Millennials: America’s favorite scapegoat
- Millennials – New Scapegoat for Greedy Baby Boomers
- The myth of millennial entitlement
- Fuck You, I’m Not a Millennial
