and sexist. Women also (and this is really important) were beaten down in popular culture if they chose to be traditional wives and mothers. Women became afraid to make this choice because of the culture telling them "if you do this, everyone will think you're dumb, and you'll have no social life." Sadly, this bad message / influence persists today, although some progress has been made in pushing back against it.

The Boomer lifestyle was mainly killed by these two things.

Going off the gold standard, where a family could save money.

NAFTA and WTO China trade agreements.

So, basically the devaluation of the dollar and the offshoring of jobs.

Let's be honest, it worked on a macro scale. At the individual level, there were definitely instances of abuse and corruption. With women reliant on men for income, immoral men could easily take advantage of and abuse women. Not saying you are wrong, simply pointing out that there are some issues with the women as home makers model that I think we generally fail to recognize and address.

Let’s be honest, feminism doesn’t work.

The damages caused by taking parents out of the home far outweigh the issues with women being in their traditional role.

Frog_Anne 9 points ago +9 / -0

There were instances of abuse, just like there are today. But it wasn't the majority, or even many, and it wasn't considered acceptable to hit your wife. This also feeds the myth that women "weren't allowed" to work, which is not true. Throughout history, most women had to work (as did many children), because most people were poor. With an increase in the middle class and prosperity, many women had the option to stay home in the 40s and 50s, but they could still work, even after they had children.

We're not talking about the distant past, lost in the mist of time, this is our own grandparents and great-grandparents we're talking about. We know them, most were normal, nice people. This idea of every man controlling the money and giving his wife a pitiful allowance for housekeeping is feminist nonsense. Many families worked out a budget together, and it was not uncommon for the wife to be in charge of finances - he gave her the whole pay packet and she gave him spending money from his own paycheck.

The misconception that people have today is that all of the boomer were rich.

On the contrary, some things were more expensive, compared to what you made.

I don't care what anyone calls me. I hate them so much. I hate all other Central Americans more. I work in a trade in south Texas so I am around tons of Mexicans, El Salvadorans, Hondurans, Columbians, etc. They are thieving destructive criminals at high rates and do shitty work while often abusing welfare programs and stealing identities. They are frequently super entitled and sometimes senselessly violent if they belong to a gang. I am happy to admit that some of them are wonderful people who add value, my current boss is a legal immigrant from Mexico and I have nothing but respect for the man, but most are a blight on our Nation. I'm sick of working with these fuckers. I used to do the same trade in a significantly whiter area and didn't have half the issues with theft, vandalism, and random acts of senseless destruction as I do now. Also the work quality was significantly higher on average.

Saying Boomers are responsible is like saying Millennials are responsible for the post-9-11 nightmare we now live in and the lethal injections being globally administered. How did Boomers (WHO WERE CHILDREN IN THE 50's-60's-70's) "fail to pass this on"?? By age 18 Boomers HAD to fight in Vietnam because there was a draft. Until 1971, Boomers couldn't even vote until they were 21. Nixon (a member of the "Greatest Generation") took us off the gold standard.

RStroud 22 points ago +22 / -0

LBJ's War on poverty combined with Griswold v. Connecticut & Roe v. Wade decimated the family. These are legacy of "greatest generation" men, too. Mid 60s to mid 70s is where America jumped the shark and destroyed everything that had held it together, ironically in the name of progress and liberation.

unaor 12 points ago +12 / -0

The downfall started in the early 1900s, at least. 1913 the Federal Reserve was illegally created by Woodrow Wilson and a few months later WW1 broke out so its investors could get a quick return. Don't even get me started on WW2, just look up General Patton's thoughts on WW2 if you want to know the truth of that war. I'd say the Constitution was killed in the Civil War, as it was basically a war over the 10th amendment, and the side that wanted to ignore the 10th amendment to push tyranny won. These problems go back a long way.

As boomers climbed the corporate ladder, they pulled it up and then sold off the lower level jobs to foreign countries for cheaper labor, so that no one after the boomer was able to achieve what the boomer achieved. They never cared about the pain of future generations as long as there own personal wealth increased.

They are never going to break free, they've been conditioned to hate their parents instead of respect them as part of the cultural shift away from the traditional family unit. What is ironic is they pretend to long for it while actively fighting against it. I would love to see an entire generation of millenials and onward watch their children grow up to hate them and blame everything on them and still try to pretend it's their parent's fault. They'll understand when the time comes, but like they say youth is wasted on the young.

Yet the Boomers had at the very least, 5 opportunities to vote the globalists out of office while our elections were still actually legitimate. But you didn’t.

It’s not like people just started to realize what’s going in the last 5 years. People have been warning about this happening for 50 years. The lobbyists took over D.C. while Boomers shrugged. Hey, the economy is good so who cares?

Boomers will be remembered as a generation for their selfishness and short-sightedness. Duped by the TV set.

I’m glad you were patient with him and explained it.

My parents are boomers, but the only expectations they had of us kids was to work and save money. College was a plus, but just working a job was the most important thing.

Big thing that changed with them vs following generations, though- was lifetime jobs w/benefits. Those aren’t so common anymore.

Unless you work for local, state, or federal. Both my parents retired from federal. One as a machinist, the other as a mail carrier.

Now you can’t work those jobs bc they have been overrun by the nastiest, laziest folk around, just bc they know they can’t be fired. It’s not a good or honorable environment or anymore- and they will make your life hell if you try to perform your work well, I guess bc it will make them look bad and/or they want the standard to be set so high.

There’s something about not being able to fire employees that attracts a certain kind of person.

3
sordfysh 3 points ago +5 / -2

Lifetime job with benefits is voluntary communism. It doesn't work.

As an employee you are asked to give your end of the bargain up front-- your labor. Then they give you retirment and all that later. And then they don't. And you have no recourse. But they tell you to blame the government so that they can convince the government to pay your pension for them.

It's like when North Korea runs out of food, they blame the US for their condition and demand the US give them food.

A worker receives pay. A neighbor receives his community. A worker does not receive community.

Isn’t it fascinating that every generation post boomer was raised to believe the people who said Elvis was dangerous to the culture and Joe McCarthy were all evil..

And yet those people it turns out were all 100% right?

Yes Elvis looks tame by comparison to what came after him, but he was emblematic of the cultural shift the boomers embraced that ushered in (at lightning speed) all of the cultural poison that we abhor today.

BeefyBelisarius 5 points ago +5 / -0

The oldest boomers were born in 1946, which would make them eight years old when Elvis started his music career. They were ten when he started making movies. Eight years later, the youngest boomers were born.

Fuck off you divisive moron. After the Marxists successfully pushed the feminist "all men are bastards" narrative and turned men and women against each other - they needed a new spearhead.

The new spearhead was turning the generations against each other - and what better way than taking the first hiveminded, social media influenced drones AKA The Millenialls - and convincing them the Boomers were to blame for all their problems. They aren't.

My parents were Boomers. They worked 2 jobs each, they didn't buy new cars and new tech every year, they didn't go on lavish holidays, they didn't buy fucking brand name shit to impress their mates and they certainly never whinged and moaned as much as lazy fucking Millenialls etc do. When they bought a house they bought one they could afford - not the one they might have preferred - and they bought it in an outer suburb because it was cheaper. They didn't feel the need to HAVE to live within 10 minutes of a fucking city.

It's typical leftist manipulation of what started out as a good idea - real, true friends, the kind that'll tell you to your face stuff you need to hear but don't want to, are extremely important. My best friend and his family are like family to me, more so than some of my aunts and uncles (the ones who are sociopathic moneygrubbing (Democrats, lol), and I can understand why people with narcissists or abusive family members need to find family elsewhere.

What's sick is pushing valuing complete strangers over your own family in healthy, functional families, and that's what the left does. They always take fringe cases and push that shit on absolutely everyone, to the detriment of us all.

Sometimes the blood of the covenant is thicker then the blood of the womb. I.E. Sometimes the bonds you make with people are stronger then the bonds of your family. That doesn't mean that family is always bad, or friends are always good. Though I do agree that Hollywood does do this.

PrezElectHamsandwich 2 points ago +2 / -0

The antidote to class warfare is individualism — realizing that all generalizations, no matter how statistically correct, always erase the wide range of differences within them.

The way I read these things is that when someone goes on the Internet to complain about "boomers", they are talking about their own skewed sample of boomers they have met in their lives – i.e. their parents, first and foremost, and their parents' friends, who are likely to be more alike than different.

So while their experience of boomers will be undoubtedly true, and likely also find support from others (even if its just the children of their parents' friends), that does not mean that all boomers are like that.

One other fact about us boomers. OUR PARENTS lived through the Great Depression and we were taught the value of self-sufficiency. Which is why many of us do not take government handouts. We know the government ALWAYS takes something in return.

Pterohonkosaur 13 points ago +15 / -2

This. My parents both grew up poor.

The problem was that generation wanted to be left alone and were much more trusting in their fellow citizens' patriotism, meanwhile the marxist infiltration of institutions was well under way and so were the fake patriots in politics.

The kids I grew up with think government handouts are free. My parents first question was always, where did the money come from? Usually citizens' own pockets.

My uncle was killed when he was 16 while hopping a train during the depression to find work.

My father and his parents were too poor to bring his body back for burial, so he is buried in Alabama where he died of gangrene when both his legs were crushed between the train car couplings.

My parent's generation suffered more than we can ever comprehend.

Be proud of your parents and thank them for doing that, but also know that not all boomer parents were like this. Mine were totally psyched to take money from the government when they needed it, or even when it was just convenient for them, and so as a result I never got the "don't trust the government" talk that I desperately needed growing up.

This last few years of watching the leftists' behavior made me even angrier that they have been allowed to get away with it for so long. Republicans are the ones allowing it and there are not enough HONEST Republicans in congress to fight them all.

So they got duped. Scammed. Used. Swindled. Bamboozled. For years. Decades and decades. Their entire lives, really. And they never caught on because nothing - not their children, not even basic sense and reason - was more important than chasing that golden egg.

This is the generation that had full control of government, society and culture for longer than any generation before them.

FORCED. It is a MANDATE that one MUST pay Social Security taxes and apply for Medicare when you turn 65 whether you have health insurance or not.

Social Security was SUPPOSED to be in a "locked box" but the Democrats raided it over the years.

I would rather the government give me all my money BACK that I've paid in to do with it what I feel is best with it.

But they would rather give money that I EARNED over my lifetime to "immigrant" senior citizens PLUS Medicare when they have never paid ONE DIME into the system.

Don't blame my generation for the forced theft from Democrats over the last 40 or more years.

2
disgruntled_patriot 2 points ago +2 / -0

Mandates are FORCED compliance. Boomers willingly comply. Boomers willingly comply so hard that they've been expressly ecstatic to finally be able to cash in on their promised golden goose their entire lives.

They've been complicit in a scam for over half a century, eager accomplices (and victims) to the grift.

Scams are always "supposed" to be something they're not. That's what makes them scams.

I would rather the government give me all my money BACK that I've paid in to it...

My dad has this same sentiment. I've heard many other boomers express it as well.

It's a nice thought, but it's whimsical thinking. A flight of fancy. And therefore useless. Since when does the government GIVE BACK anything they've stolen?

And more than that, it is not backed up by anything. After all, if this was something you really wanted, then you would have fought to make it happen long ago.

I do blame your generation and it is not forced theft. Thieves only steal what you allow them to take from you.

If you boomers really wanted to, you could have put a stop to it. I'm not saying it would be easy. But people have fought to accomplish less.

But no. You were all tempted by the promise of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. You were cowed by the rule that if you kept your heads down, worked to make money for the political and corporate gangsters, and didn't speak up while they openly signed your country and your children's futures over to communism and corporate feudalism, then someday you would be allowed to reap the benefits of the golden goose.

You played into the communist's hands for decades and now here we are...

Hardly. You can't work without paying taxes. That is a fact of life. As far as the "pot of gold" goes, we all knew going in that we would never get back what we paid in. Our hands are tied, just the same as yours are.

Did you know that once the boomers aged out of their reproductive years, the abortion numbers dropped to levels that were lower than before abortion was legal. That's how much boomers loved abortion. Similar trend happened with divorce. This is marked, documented facts that prove how much more immoral the boomers were as compared to other generations.

Oh give me a break. I'm Gen X, so I'm right in between millennials and boomers. In fact, I'm much closer to millennials in terms of age, and I can tell you without a doubt, millennials are 1000 times more preconditioned than boomers. No question about it. And Gen Z is even worse than millennials. I mean, come on. "Hello Kettle. I'm Pot. You're Black!"

This current trend of Marxist insanity gained a full head of steam under Obama as millennials came of age. Yes, you can trace roots back to 30s in the U.S. So if we're being fair, we can even blame the WWII generation for some of this, but we fell off the cliff with millennials under Obama. That's when new wave American liberalism became straight up Marxist totalitarianism.

Agreed, but it's becoming harder to resist. The older generations didn't want this fight when the risk was just being called racist. Now you can be jettisoned from society a la Book of Revelations for not bowing to the degenerate thrust of the last 60 years.

But anyone who thinks the younger generations won't be called out on their blue-haired furry commie cohorts by future pedes is perhaps not being honest with himself, so the older generations now can take some responsibility here and now.

Thing is , its not just "Oh you got called names."

When they're throwing around names and labels, while it doesn't mean anything to us, It means all kinds of things to them. Especially now. George Floyd wasn't the only time there was a massive race riot.many years ago back there was the time where you had people standing on their rooftops because CA became a hotspot of PVP activity.

You've got when people supposedly started to stand up against human trafficing and formed a compound to stop it from happening in Waco TX. They got torched.

Up in Detroit I believe it was, the police firebombed a neighborhood to get some "terrorists"

Timothy Mcveeh bombed the oklahoma city building.

Anyone that would start to stand up and fight, they got young and sent off to the jungle to die. Then off to the desert to die.

And now these names aren't about you, its about making them feel morally superior and righteous about attacking or even killing you.

The everyday boomer sat on their asses while they raised two generations of americans and let it all go to shit.

Boomers had a civic responsibility to remain vigilant and oppose the communist takeover of this cesspool of a country.

Instead they presided over rampant inflation, ever plunging wages, 50 percent divorce rates, the unfettered erosion of human rights, perpetual forever wars and an ever increasingly out of control military industrial complex, the explosive expansion of central goverment that became ever more intrusive, blatantly criminal currency manipulation, unrestrained government spending, and multiple "once in a lifetime" economic collapses.

But hey, so long as their precious pensions, 401ks, social securities and medicares weren't threatened, what did they care?

Boomers did not bring down the most powerful communist country in history any more than I saved all of Middle Earth by defeating the dark lord.

First of all, the most powerful communist country in history is China and it is still doing extremely well for itself, thanks to boomers.

But the Soviet Union was brought down by a combination of internal revolution and foreign policy.

The people of Russia and the Eastern Bloc countries had everything to do with the end of the USSR. To claim that a single boomer had anything to do with it is asinine.

Secondly, everyone who died in Vietnam did so to enrich the military industrial complex. And I'm pretty sure the Vietnam war did jack and squat to prevent the spread of communism given that Vietnam dun went and fell to communism anyway.

The current generation ISN'T ALLOWED to do anything. The current generation HAS BEEN RAISED to be useless... by boomers.

But just wait until we've finally had enough and all you boomers are dying cold and alone on the broken streets of america. We'll be busy fighting for our lives while you'll all be withering ignominiously into oblivion.

We just can't take care of you all when we're busy fighting to restore the world you all fucked up for us.

As a so-called "boomer," I resent your generational divisiveness. You succeed only in dividing the team fighting this crises. I was a white kid that survived the first year of being bussed to a mostly-black inner-city school (1976-1977). I've had my ass kicked because of the color of my skin. Initially, our busses would get pelted by rocks thrown by the black kids formed in lines, with windows broken, as the busses would leave the school I have never been racist as I am a Christian first... however, I have NEVER been afraid of being called a racist. I've been involved in other racial events of black people inappropriately confronting white people during my military career including threats to my own life. What did I learn? Well, I was recently lectured at work by a young white man that believes in BLM/CRT about how great the movements are as he believes black people have been systemically disadvantaged by the white people. After telling my stories about being targeted because of the color of my skin, he admitted that he has never been targeted because of the color of his skin and had attended only predominantly white schools. We "boomers" (and I am aware that's a derogatory word) are not to blame solely. It's as stupid to target generations as it is to target someone by the color of their skin. You only succeed at dividing the people who can't think for themselves. We're in this fight together so please stop with the divisiveness.

If you were being bussed in around 76, wouldn't you be a Gen X born 1966 to 1976.

This is correct. I’m not sure why a lot of Gen X think people talking about “boomers” are taking about them. I’m in the older side of Gen X and thinking back it is surprising how long the bussing happened into the 80s in some parts of the South.

Although I'd be more in the "in crowd" as a Gen-x'er, I was born at the end of the baby boom. I started 7th grade by being bussed to the inner city Junior High. We had no top cover as they only bussed 7th graders at the time (7-9th grades were JH at the time) and my two older brothers were allowed to continue in their mostly-white Junior High. Seventh grade was crazy-racist against us (I need to point out that it wasn't by all of the black students...some were very nice towards us), but the racial situation became better by 9th grade.

I'm not going to get wrapped up in your psychoanalysis of my childhood and my current state of being based on me talking about one aspect of my life in response to your accusation that we're afraid of being labeled as racists. Hint, you're wrong about my childhood (it was great minus the racial bullshit) and you're wrongly making statements concerning the boomer generation. Sure, we have plenty of assholes as does every generation... Sure, there was a massive attempt in the courts and schools to indoctrinate us boomers as young people. It didn't work on all of us though is the simplest way that I can put it to you. I do appreciate your response though and I'll try some introspection to see where you are right about me. I just hope that all of us stick together to combat the more major current problems confronting our way of life.

Back in the day we had things called books that people read, sometimes 20 to 30 a week to get these things called degrees. Fact check prior to the internet took time. Financially, the average family was better off than today and so the powers that be decided to tap into that vast money making resource called the middle class. I could go into volumes but to what end? People will not give up their comfort to resist tyranny, let alone lay down their lives. Genocide is ongoing and I recently spoke to a democrat family member who thinks Biden is doing a good job. There is no reasoning with the brainwashed.

Skip a couple gens and let US inherit the 50s. I fucking love their civility. The women ALL had perkier breasts too and were smoking hot.

I love it when I see posts pushing divisive shit when this community knows that pushing divisive shit is exactly how the commies have gotten this far.

It is, a downside of success, so called victimhood of success. Things were too good. Things were too ideal. People don’t seem to like that. They seem to have too much free time to bitch and moan. That’s where feminism was able to inject itself like a cancer as was all the critical race garbage

The only thing worse than the baby boomers is their spawn. That is the part of the equation that the millennials like to leave out

The greatest generation had their significant flaws. They were the product of the progressive Era and got out of a war. They trusted government and institutions to raise their children.

This is a much better framing. Appreciated

Blaming an entire generation for the backroom dealings of the 1% is loco. It's like your kids blaming you for the rise of China or the covid lockdowns. Rocking the boat without power is dangerous.

Only someone from the 1% can save the world from the 1%. Grassroots is rarely organic.

Boomer blacks had this as well and we're more invested in it.

It was the boomer kids at this time who started the Hippie movement which was started by the CIA occultists . Which defragmented the natural order of things and caused everyone to become a faggot hippie in spirit.. Those kids then gree up , cut their hair to look normal but inside kept their wicked ways and caused the next generations to be sexually perverted and tolerant of evil instead of giving them the courage to stand up to evil.

And then that evil generation raised this completely confused and twisted and perverted 21st century generation that we see today that is soo dumb they don't even know the difference between a man and a woman.

Yes, you flaming morons, it's a "generation" thing. Fuck me, this country is stupid

and gets more dense by the hour. The elem. school boomers watched their president be

brutally murdered on a public street in broad daylight while he sat next to his wife.

The "FED" then immediately ramped up the Nam war to send the teen boomers to the front

lines via the draft while they set the dogs and real bullets on the dissenting boomers.

For the rest of the boomers it was welcome to competition with 90 million other boomers

with wage and price freeze policy, no Breton Woods and a decade of stagflation

followed by 22% interest.

If you think it was boomers, you are simply beyond talking to.

Despite that nightmare existence boomers held 19 times the patents of corporate America,

had the longest work week, shortest sick leave, shortest vacation time while

out producing any industrialized country on earth by 3X and inventing just about

everything anyone ever wanted to buy, including the internet.

Hey, but what the fuck, while the chinks kick our asses and make us sick, we have

Facebook and Twitter.

POINT BEING: IT'S THE GLOBALISTS, STUPID, THEN AND NOW.

Boomers rejected that because they were told it prevented people from being free.

It has more to do with them not holding government to account and less to do with your race obsession.

No doubt. That doesn’t require that it be the focus of obsession, though. In my eyes, that’s comparable to accepting the premise of the collectivists; group identity over that of the individual.

Sure, individuals excel when pursuing a collective goal but that doesn't really require all the people in that group to have the same color skin. The suggestion is just a little weird. A little too similar to progressive eugenics for me.

A collective in pursuit of a free society should be made up of individuals who share the common goal of liberty, regardless of what they look like. If they're down for the cause, they're ok with me.

So much indoctrination? A huge cope?

Fuck off with that condescending bullshit. Yeah, you didn’t mention race but the OP I was commenting on did and, apparently, you’re just as much of a racial collectivist as he is. No better than marxists in my book. I’ll take a black, asian or hispanic patriot over a race obsessed white guy any day.
