I still think there’s a big generational war about to happen as the amount of boomers retiring and drawing on social security drags down everything else. I’ll be curious to see who reaches for this conflict in upcoming elections. Here’s an essay from Gin and Tacos:
We feel this is necessary because at first glance it might seem like we are a generation of narcissistic, spoiled assholes who freeloaded off of the magnificent world our parents built for us and then cashed out before handing it over to you. This is an unfair characterization. It disregards the fact that we earned the right to do those things. We earned them by being awesome. Haven’t you seen the films of us marching around protesting The Man in the sixties?
