'83 early millennial here. I raised myself and partially raised my younger siblings.

My Boomer parents tried and failed because they had issues. My mother doesn't like talking about it.

I also understand why Millennials are hated. We when get to be old we're going to be worse than the boomers because we'll be broke narcissists.

'84, here. Can confirm. Our generation was also the first to be subjected to endless Communist indoctrination. If something doesn't change fast, I'm genuinely terrified of the day we're firmly in charge, and that's a breath away, now.

I’m not. The newer generations (I’m a millenial) are so lazy that society is far more likely to collapse than anything else. The minority of us who can work will pick up the pieces and move on.

‘75 here. My boomer mother raised nothing but my blood pressure as a teenager. My boomer dad worked as much as he could just so he didn’t have to be home. They’re not liberals, they’re politically stupid. Love ‘em both.

Boomers are ignorant and millennials are lazy. First hand experience.

You cannot hire a boomer unless they really need the money. You cannot hire a millennial unless you coddle their feelwings.

Give me Gen X workers anyday, work hard, complaints are only when things really are to be complained about and can care less about your feelwings!

ghost_of_aswartz 25 points ago +27 / -2

Boomers believe everything they hear on the news

Even if you show them countless examples of

  • How the system has failed you AND them to a degree (you're their kids after all)
  • How the system exploits everyone and creates war
  • How conspiracy theorists have been right about everything
  • How the GOvernment and media lies to them all the time, does nothing but lie

Boomers have this kind of cognitive dissonance that could be classified as an Axis III learning disorder

Keiichi81 17 points ago +17 / -0

Boomers believe everything they hear on the news

I'll second this. My self-proclaimed conservative boomer father watches ABC News religiously. I've told him multiple times that he's watching propaganda, and pointed out instances where they were either completely wrong or where they were hypocritical in their coverage. He'll even agree that it's all biased. Doesn't matter. He still watches them. When I ask him why, his response is always something like "If I don't watch, then I won't know what's going on in the world!"

I don't understand how someone can acknowledge that their news program is biased propaganda but still insist on watching it thinking that they're informing themselves. I guess he figures he's smart enough to spot the propaganda, but I'll frequently hear him spouting leftist talking points and have to explain how it's bullshit. He also told me that he had to "hold his nose" to vote for Trump, so clearly his perceptions are being colored.

Ironically, I'm frequently breaking new stories to him before he ever hears about them from ABC. Somehow I manage to be informed about what's going on in the world without tuning in to propaganda like a brainless drone...

There variations of this but its more common than you think with the Boomer mothers with too much time on their hands.

Also, Boomers that refuse to understand that you do not apply for a job in person anymore at most places. Some places might have a kiosk, otherwise you apply online.

Dark_Shroud 1 point ago +1 / -0

Have you ever had a place give you a little print out sheet with the website address? Many chain and corporate owned & run places do that.

The manager does not have a say in any part of that.

Dark_Shroud 1 point ago +1 / -0

That's nice, but in many office & service industry jobs you cannot apply in person.

Unless the place is independent and had a help wanted sign up.

I had the hardest time convincing my boomer father of this back during the mid aughts, when work was hard to come by. I'd spend the whole day in my room submitting resumes, getting more and more depressed, only to come downstairs to have him yell at me for not trying to find a job. Couple of times it came close to blows.

3
Mythnutbill 3 points ago +3 / -0

I feel that. I absolutely hate applying for jobs amd only got lucky with the last couple thanks to my incredibly tiny network.

This has happened to my wife in real life. She used to own a small pet grooming business. Had an applicant literally do this. Mommy even did some illegal peeking into our finances (mommy was a bank manager). Needless to say, she was not hired, and her mom was unemployed shortly thereafter.

So the Generation that didn’t suffer from the disastrous policies of their boomer parents until they had established careers thinks their better fortune is due to others “being lazy”.

Millennials are a product of communist schools. I was in the 5th grade when the federal government completely took over education, from PE to math. Some of us were lucky, and red pilled ourselves, but our parents sure didn't help. Our entire curriculum changed, and they didn't even bother to ask why.

  2. Colours Fly And Catherine Wheel (that bass line!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QItJMmTj4V8

Also, the earlier Real to Real Cacophony is a good album, but a bit more of an acquired taste.

8
ghost_of_aswartz 8 points ago +8 / -0

I would accept that is true if you clarify what 'modern' means

arpanet was conceived (by boomers) late 1960s and operational early 1970s, and it was really only used by military and government until late 1980s where college people were given limited slip access to it, and then early 1990s was when this really accelerated with the popularization of email and an early browser called 'slipknot', and then mosaic and netscape, and once there was direct tcp/ip access and laws allowed ISPs, the thing took off. I want to say this was like 1994-1995 ish

‘75 here. Fuck the commie boomers who infiltrated the universities. Fuck the millennial snowflakes who fell for the bullshit.

GenX has our own issues. But damnit. We ain’t a buncha homo commie snowflake fags. Badass movies. Badass music.

One thing: we were the generation taught to not be racist. Period. We were the generation the MLK Jr. dreamed about. We were the generation that judged people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Will Smith. Denzel. Wesley Snipes. Martin Lawrence. Morgan Freeman. Halle Berry. They were/are celebrated actors of our generation. It didn’t matter that they were black. They made great movies.

The music. Eh. Well. I like some DMX. Some limited rap. Most of it didn’t appeal to me. I liked rock.

But the thing is, I was taught and believed that the color of skin didn’t matter. And my generation was cool with that.

Then came Barrack fucking Obama. And Kkkillary Clinton. And the modern dems. They took my trust and turned it against me. Fuck ‘em all. All I want is to be left alone. All they want is to make me and my kids feel “less than” because of the color of our skin.

I’m the man who just wants to be left alone.

7
N900mixalot 7 points ago +7 / -0

We were also taught that self esteem is what matters. Accepting what we have (including our bodies) and making the most of it, though some of us went a little crazy with the piercings and tattoos.

Our movies made us adventurers, taught us not to be afraid of differences, friends are important, love our idiot parents and respect our wild, out of control grandparents, which we thought they were but they were just trying to keep our boomer parents from fucking us up.

I am going to say this with 100% confidence

Generation X is the most 'awake' / clear-eyed generation. We're basically the conspiracy theorist generation

Anyway, I am a few days older than Alex Jones, who is also GenX

We've been right about everything, but we're still not well-off. I think many of us tried to change the world for the better, and in this process of being beaten down for this effort, we were led to a deeper understanding of the corruption of the system. It's possible that our world is being run by a psychopathic AI. No Really. And has been for maybe 5 decades. It could be why we keep losing. Have you ever lost a game over and over to the 'expert' AI setting in a video game?

I'm ok with getting shit from Gen-Xers.

Millennials are lazy retards thanks to that. With social norms broken, there's no purpose in anything.

4
N900mixalot 4 points ago +4 / -0

It says something about the state of our country not to have apresident who is from a particular generation.

I don't think it was a statement about the need for one, just like being curious about why there are no [blanks] in a particular job. Nothing wrong with wondering why, the problem occurs only when it leads to demands for that [blank] to be "included" because of whatever stupid theme some woke boomer agreed with that came from some idiot millenial.

We're the slacker generation. We're also apathetic, cynical and don't vote. At least according to nineties stereotypes. We're also incredibly hard to market to apparently. .

Gen X. A generation that may never have political power. The boomers started taking power in the 1990's. They still hold it. Biden and Trump are even older. It's weird.

Has there ever been a generation so greedy that desperately clenches onto life and power like the boomer generation?

They will hold onto the reigns until they fall dead from the horse. The lives of the next generation be damned.

But is it actually Greed? Or could it be a deep, existential fear of Death that manifests as Greed and Selfishness and is very strong for that particular group of people for some reason?

Not that it changes the condition of things as they exist for us right now, but certainly something to ponder. I think that may be what it is and certainly would explain the Transhumanist and Safety Over All Things approaches that politics and culture have been taking.

It is an existential fear of death, I agree. They are so attached to materials and the material world.

My father, a boomer, has almost a disdain for the generations to come. His parents handed him everything and he is so selfish and self focused.

It's really hard for me to understand.

I was born in 1980, and it seems that some definitions place me as a Millennial, which is strange since I was raised on GI Joe, Predator, and knowledge that Trump was a successful businessman.

79 here. By most accounts I've heard, Gen X lasts through the early 80's. If you grew up with He Man, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pont, and GI Joe, you'd likely count. If you remember seeing the original Star Wars trilogy on their theatrical re-release and remember the huge number of Kenner action figures, you'd count.

I showed my kid the Back to the Future trilogy and he clearly loved it. Was fun seeing him gasp at all the exciting parts. (In hindsight, can't believe how much Kathleen Kennedy was involved in many of my 80's faves.... The rest of the crew likely kept her in line.)

It's a fuzzy line. I've heard us called X-ennials before. We don't quite fit in either group. I've always associated more with the traits of Gen X, though. Disaffected. Cynical. Race blind. But most X-ers came of age when the machine was still running. I can't say the same.

2AMOFO 4 points ago +4 / -0

75 and brother and sister were 79 and 80. We all thought of ourselves as Xers. Never thought of The Breakfast Club as such at the time, but looking back, they definitely weren't boomers, so I accept them. They were just kind of grown up before the X term was even coined.

^this. Born in 62. My life was nothing like most boomers and I never related to them. Mostly raised myself from about the age of 8 or 9. Took my first job at 14 after doing odd jobs in the neighborhood since I was 11. Left home at 16, finished high school, put myself through college, built a life, and never looked back.

All this generational hate is retarded. It’s just people looking for someone else to blame for their own failures in life.

Devon Stack (BlackPilled) did a very good analysis of The Breakfast Club:

It turns out a lot of films I used to love were actually pushing degenerate bullshit. I still think it's a good movie in a way, but I look at it a lot differently now.

  1. Dad worked a lot, Mom intolerable and consumed by appearances and shopping. Ignored me except when I was meant to be a showpiece. Fine. Did my own thing and was successful. I think the friendships I had in the 80s gave me strength. It felt like a movie and was awesome. Even the bad times. Kids today don't have friends to have their back like we did. My son is 17 and totally based. He is ready to vote for Trump. I wonder if all of this will swing back and we can have another shot at an 80s America.

Checking in here. I hated my Boomer teachers from school. Lazy, didn't do much teaching, and lectured on things like anti-nuclear and demonstration. One teacher spent the whole day reading sailing magazines instead of teaching. I didn't learn math until 7th grade. Turned on TV and they would be bragging about demonstrating against the Vietnam war in Sitcoms. Then I started working and they were lazy, complained a lot and actually bragged about how they made more money than me (even though I only started working.) A weird bunch I thought. Then the Millenials came along and they seem to be 10 time worse. Is it time to leave for Mars yet?
