Baby boomers ruined America, according to this Generation X author
New book argues their ‘sociopathic’ tendencies are to blame for climate change, and that’s just for starters

Millennials have a reputation for being entitled, self-absorbed and lazy, but a new book argues that their parents are actually a bigger danger to society.

In “A Generation of Sociopaths: How the Boomers Betrayed America,” Bruce Cannon Gibney traces many of our nation’s most pressing issues, including climate change and the rising cost of education, back to baby boomers’ idiosyncrasies and enormous political power ...

Quit blaming everyone else and fix it then. Whining loser. Millennials, always complaining

Understanding American history (and the lies that were and still are told), the wars that were fought during the Baby Boomer era, the impact of the Civil Rights Movement, the sexual revolution, the Feminist movement and considering the modernization of America...it doesn't surprise me that some millennials would think this way. But, let's take a closer look at this because Black people should not be fooled by this rhetoric because I don't believe it applies to us.

Who is the author REALLY blaming for ruining America? Look at him...exactly, his ancestors--WHITE people. Black youth weren't rebelling against their parents who made up the establishment. Black parents weren't being greedy consumers and running corporate America. Black people weren't running Congress or the White House and sending young men off to fight in wars against people that never did anything to harm them. No, it was white kids wildly rejecting their parent's moral, political, religious and social standards. They were called Hippies...the "make love, not war" youth, the white youth that preached to never trust anyone over the age of 30! The very same people who are running the major corporations today and controlling our politics; they are the wallstreet bankers and the military generals. Black youth didn't have time for that mess because we were too darn busy trying to survive in a racist society; trying to live a decent life and create a better set of options for our children; fighting for social justice and equity. So, pffft...ain't us.

Now, the BIGGER question is, as Keme already said, what the heck is he doing to change the situation if he doesn't like it? Hmm...I wonder if apples do fall far from the tree. :popcorn1:
Millennials owe a record amount of debt, and it could become a huge drag on the economy

US consumer debt is approaching a record 20% of GDP, and millennials owe most of it.

Millennials — 21 to 34-year-olds — hold an estimated $1.1 trillion of the country's $3.6 trillion in consumer debt, according to UBS, as rising student and auto loans outweigh a drop in mortgages ...

Ten reasons millennials are backing away from God and Christianity

College-aged millennials today are far more likely than the general population to be religiously unaffiliated, this is true when they are compared to previous generations as well.

In fact, the Pew Research Center documents that millennials are the least outwardly religious American generation, where “one in four are unaffiliated with any religion, far more than the share of older adults when they were ages 18 to 29” ...
