Mailvox: but you will age too!

This email tends to demonstrate, as if it was necessary, the utter inability of Boomers to imagine that everyone else isn't as relentlessly narcissistic as they are:
After reading the "boomers need to be left to die" post I was reminded of something. Logan’s Run seemed to advance this basic strategy. Now though, facing another of the inevitable crises that blindside everyones cool plans, age has been upped to about 65+.

Allow me to exaggerate:

Sure sounds neat if you are younger. Because all the points you make are largely true. What you and the bulk of the responses put forth as the logical solution seems incredibly dangerous.

On one hand, if you really believe this, the consequences of the consequences may well roll right over you once it becomes the culture. Perhaps you could volunteer to self extinct upon achieving that benchmark age, because that is at the bottom of the slope you are promoting.

Second, when you successfully implement this "boomers must die" program, the message is: Now that you have spent your life paying and paying not only for your own family, but every unproductive fellow citizen the state could force upon you, just die already, now you are useless and unfortunately expensive.

Please, explain to me why anyone witnessing this regime would feel eager to work to support it, as any contribution in the positive you have made is deemed worthless at the cut off age.

This isn’t some butt hurt defense of being older. This crisis isn’t some Titanic sinking unexpectedly, this is simply life being random and deciding your new and better form of socialism is kill the old. How old is too old? When the bottom really drops out, is 65 too old? How about 40?  30?

Triage is fine, and necessary in short term disasters with small populations of a common culture and will obviously be employed until resources are found to save the remainder. Once you cast aside the elderly, you define life not worth living. Pick a demographic, demonize it. Replay Zimbabwe. $$$$$$$

And yes, boomers are not your friends and yes they have created a lousy situation. Many generations do. Are you promising your way is better? Because that is clearly what they thought.
First, we know perfectly well that we will experience the consequences. So what? We don't care! We have known we weren't going to be collecting much, if anything, in the way of social security since literally the very first day we paid into it. We have known that our selfish, self-centered predecessors weren't going to leave us any inheritances since we first started saving money. Our only mistake was to believe that they would at least leave us a functioning society. The Boomer's very questions reveal his total ignorance of the generation that follows him, let alone the subsequent generations.

 Second, this isn't The Day of the Pillow. This isn't a "Boomers must die" program. This is merely the time-honored, eucivilizational concept of "child-bearing women and children first". Only a Boomer could possibly assume that not being prioritized is tantamount to a death sentence.

Third, the Boomer again reveals his narcissism. Who would work to support such a regime? The very same sort of men who have planted the acorns for the mighty oaks under whose shade they never sat for generation after generation. The fact that this is not only an alien concept, but one that is actually perceived as a negative one is something that damns the Boomer far more comprehensively than anything I can possibly say.

Fourth, we're not those who "cast aside the elderly". We loved our grandparents. We prioritize our children. The Boomers are those who adopted the twin philosophies of "never trusting anyone over thirty" and "he who dies with the most toys wins". Yes, I promise that our way is better, because our way is the old way, the way of our ancestors, the way that you Boomers proudly rejected.

And fifth, whether what I have put forth as a logical solution is dangerous or not is irrelevant, because it is inevitable. The math doesn't lie.

You made your beds. Now die in them, preferably with some dignity if you can muster it for the first time in your cursed dyscivilizational existences.

In the interests of ensuring the perpetuation of the species or one's people or group, the old make way for the young. There is a reason for the phrase "women and children first". Children and fertile young women have more value than old infertile women and feeble old men.

It is also true that young women have more value than young men. Imagine two islands. Island "A" has ten men and one young woman. Island "B" has ten young women and one man. Which island will have more people on it in ten years?

Let me tell you as a doc (worked a couple of years as emergency physician) that in theory it might be a hard decision, with lots of phylosophy attached when dealing with such questions, who you will help and who you will let to die.
But in practice, when you have two patients, with about the same condition, one is 20 and the other 65, and you only have one ECMO or ventilator or whatever they require.. ... it's really an easy decision which comes naturally.

We are all going to die. If we're lucky, we'll get old first. Between now and death, our task is to secure the future of our posterity. Our children and our breeding age adults are the beginning of that posterity.

Anything short of giving the young and the reproductive top priority is counterproductive. Anyone who won't see this is too stupid or too evil to live among us. Adult males and post-menopausal females have one job, and that one job is not hogging the resources for themselves.

Societies that survived harsh conditions and times had values quite a bit different than espoused above. Societies that survived had to prioritize things that kept the society/tribe alive and able to reproduce. Look to early middle ages-- slightly before and immediately after initial sack of Rome for lots of examples as tribes migrated and moved to survive. Fascinating study of Europe and traditions that developed--- same for those that repulsed the repeated muslim invasions/slaving-- or even look to England after fighting off its invasions. -- It is like nothing in Darkstream middle ages youtube classes (different times) nor like ivanhoe or mythical King Arthur.

My workplace spent the latter end of this week trying to plan around mass school closures and solving the employee availability problems it has caused.

Meanwhile, the boomer did not withhold his panic about the stock market and the hit his investments had taken. He must've asked half the staff if they thought this virus was being blown out of proportion.

Last week he spent his time bestowing his knowledge on interest rates, and explaining why a new and bigger mortgage is a good idea for me.

Hmm. Not being an American I may be missing some of the subtext - but the impression I get is that lots of people were sold the idea that you work and pay taxes for so many years, and after that you get to retire, chill out, go on holiday, read books, garden, etc etc in your senior years.

And they trusted the US government for that.

Now suddenly the promise is being broken, like something out of Orwell's Animal Farm. No happy retirement for you, Comrade Horse, once you're too old to work you'll be shipped off to the glue factory!

Vox may have seen that it was a scam all along, but not everyone is that smart.

Boomers did not come up with the concept of financializing everything, but they sure (literally) bought into it big time. Shuffling money around is the way to get rich, anybody doing something else is a sucker.

But now they're about to find out, when you're old and your roof leaks, you need a grandson to go up and fix it. If you didn't provide the world with a grandson, or if you sold all the ladders to some foreigner so you could buy a bigger house, it doesn't really matter how much money you have.

1/3 of one generation aborted. One out of three, in ten years span. Those are Black Plague numbers. Of the two thirds that survived walking under the guillotine, one half of those children lived through their parents divorce. Those children now have studies about ACES- how their body is in mortal distress from childhood onward. Plus, let's see, the car and college fund went to divorce lawyers and, sometimes, child psychologists, and most definitely police and courts.
Of the remaining, the open borders competition for jobs kept everyone down.

Let's see, take, oh, 13th Gen, a book that lays out these numbers, and then predicts not just a harder life, a more impoverished life, no, it predicts a shorter life with a voluntary foregoing of live-saving treatment after age 60, or so.

So, no, I'm not that worried about the murderously self-centered death cultists, the Baby Boom.

Not a Boomer, but this endless daddy-issues Boomer-hatred crap seems ill-advised, illogical, and mis-aligned with the goal of Western civilizational persistence. Honoring the prior generation is a an explicit and fundamental concept in Christianity and the West.

Boomers didn't invent social security or communism or subversive foreign infiltration, they inherited it from their elders - just as we X-ers did. They failed to prevent these schemes from advancing and eroding our civilization - just as we X-ers did.

Hydrogen(2) Sulphur(1) gas is a reduced problem in the oil/gas industry, due to improved detection and building design. It's heavier than air, knocks people down immediately, and within minutes it shuts down their autonomic heart/lung function. It's a gas, practically tailor-made to kill us immediately.

But I blame them for never growing out of it and seeing through it, to the point that they still pine for it and eulogize it now. (Time Life Sounds of the 60s box set re-re-re-mastered from the original Freedom Rock cassettes, anyone?)

And I do blame them for the decimation of America's manufacturing base. Boomers came of age, took power in politics and corporate America in the 1990s, and proceeded to make every single business and political decision with the same short-sighted, it's-good-for-me-now, sha la la live for today and don't worry bout tomorrow infantile narcissistic psychopathology with which they make most of their personal decisions.

With entertainment now so common, think of the theatrical version. The good guy says everybody gets to live. The bad guy says let some of us die so that the rest may live. As done by Hollywood or most any other theatrical company, at the last minute the carvery would ride to the rescue in the form of a plot twist. All of a sudden it wouldn't be necessary for anybody to die, and the good guy proven good, the bad guy bad. That is the way it is done. They are forever handing out candy in the form of wishful thinking. And this influences a certain amount of thinking.

By my lights the Godfather got it right in the movie of the same name. If you are going to risk life for some reason, let it be for your kin, for your family, for your tribe, not for anomalous strangers who don't know you and may not even like you if they did know you.

In Italy right now value judgments between people are unavoidable. Well so be it. Pass on first come first serve. But let’s not get into creating situations like that unnecessarily.

And just to bring it up, Jack London wrote a short story called The Law of Life. It played on the fact that the far north people lived on the edge of survival. At times they had no choice other than to trim the surplus, which could include abandoning the old people. You do what you have to do. That's all.

The boomers have taken it all. In law, in the US, they billed 1200-1400 hours a year, became senior partners, and raised the requirements to 2200 hours a year and then sat on all the real partnerships while organizing a death race of new lawyers only to 'reward' the hardest working and best with nonequity partnerships.
Same with government jobs. In corporations they sit on all the good jobs and hire new, bright, hardworking lawyers to do the work until they burn out.
With student loans they lecture on paying your debts, while turning a blind eye to the evil the student loan servicing companies do. They screwed every pension and social security plan out of existence, looting it and sending all the industry, and jobs, to India and China so they could buy three extra cruises a year when they retired at 62.

What they don't tell you about the Italian outbreak:


Many Italians in Northern Italy sold their leather goods and textiles companies to China.

Italy then allowed 100,000 Chinese from Wuhan/Wenzhou to move to Italy to work in these factories, with direct Wuhan flights.

Result: Northern Italy is Europe’s hotspot for Wuhan Coronavirus

The Problem:


Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, White countries for everyone IS White Genocide.

"Honor thy father and mother" is personal and singular, gamma. it doesnt refer to everyone of a certain age and it's not even close to the best-fit biblical perspective for how to frame the Boomers.


“There are those who curse their fathers
and do not bless their mothers;
12 those who are pure in their own eyes
and yet are not cleansed of their filth;
13 those whose eyes are ever so haughty,
whose glances are so disdainful;
14 those whose teeth are swords
and whose jaws are set with knives
to devour the poor from the earth
and the needy from among mankind"

5 decades of destroying the society your younger fellow citizens must live in has consequences.

One of those consequences is being informally triaged by turd-world nurse's aid as mops your room and knocks the plug out of the wall for your oxygen feed, and doesn't have the slight of bit of concern, because even though she's here because of you, she STILL hates you and everyone else who is white for no other reason than not being from her turd-world tribe.

Boomers suck - period. My own father used his children's inheritance to raise his family so that he and my mother could live as "back to the landers" out in the sticks. He then managed to wrestle a large percentage of my grandfathers trust away from his only sibling, so that he and my mother could retire as multi-millionaires. Despite all of this this he pretty much has never once helped my wife and I as we have forged our way in this world. Even when there were times where even a blind man could see our need, he never once lifted a finger to help financially. Pretty rich coming from a guy who relied on hand outs from his parents.
Thats alright we've managed to make do without them. But boy oh boy are they more than willing to stop by the house unannounced ready to talk about useless shit and give even shittier advice. And ..if you dont want to hear it - they get offended and claim you're so rude.
Then you look at my in-laws. FIL has been on disability for 30 years +..some of it legit and some not so much, MIL has diabetes due to poor life choices. They dont have a pot to piss in - so it will fall on my wife and I to carry their asses sooner rather than later. Yet despite all them being high risk for CVD-19 , they refuse to shelter in place..running around and hanging out with friends etc..
And dont get me started about boomers as clients. Owning a consulting business the boomer generation is a large percentage of my client base. They will waste your time, openly and brazenly, bitch incessantly and regularly wait 30 days or more to pay you. None of my Gen-X clients are like this.

And then you realize that there never were any programs to pay for every worthless person to live like kings on the backs of the taxpayers before the boomers literally gathered in mobs in the streets for YEARS in the 1970's, demanding that the excess funds flowing into Social Security be used for that purpose.

I read a prepper cookbook where the author thought she could sit on her front porch and watch her neighbor's house and farm-literally right across a two lane farm road- go up in a blaze in nuclear war. She really thought it would not hit her house, and that she would be immune to the radiation.

While my generation? We would do math exercises....mind you, we had a public school in New Orleans, so the teacher could not do the math...but kids whose parents were stationed in that shithole town, and parents so clueless that they thought public education was still a good thing (!) or too poor for private school, those kids would ignore the teacher, and teach us how to calculate how long it would take for the rockets to hit. We had military bases. We could calculate how long the rockets would take from XYZ communist country, where it would hit, and then the fireball, and blast radius. We all died within thirty minutes, each time. We did this. We ran the numbers. We taught each other. And then laughed hysterically.

And then my friends graduated, and the best of them joined the military, during the Reagan kriegering.

I, and my siblings, were raised by our grandparents while our various parents pursued their dreams. They have multiple degrees, dazzling large houses, stunning, sweeping romantic lives, designer clothes from exclusive boutiques, libraries full of hardbound books, walls of photos of them shaking hands with powerful, wealthy people- and now it is all sand. They have retired. They didn't save money. Their clothes are out of date and musty. Their books are being donated to libraries which pulp them. The houses aren't paid for. The love life sounds revolting, considering the dentures, the flatulence, the faithlessness, the wrinkles, the cruelty and selfishness. It takes practice to be kind and empathetic. A lifetime of self-centeredness leaves them unprepared and clumsy, even when they are trying. It's sort of horrifying, after having seen graceful, loving, selfless elders from before.

The sibs- I am the only one with children. My clothes are cheap. My marriage is precarious. I don't have degrees. I rely on library books. I'm not sure we will even be able to make the mortgage in six months. But I have children. Healthy, smart, confident children who know who their parents are, know they are loved beyond measure, who are getting good educations.

I want to lay down and die every single day because of the grief from a lifetime of dealing with faithless, narcissistic people,but my kids tell me to get up and take care of the youngest one who needs me. They tell me that I did the best with what I had, and that they honor me, and will continue to honor me. They don't say that about the faithless, cruel ones.

Boomers are owed their Social Security because they paid into it their whole lives. It's their money, dammit!

Except of course there isn't enough money to pay them what they're owed without saddling the younger generations with high taxes or high inflation. So we have to shaft somebody, either the old folks by docking their Social Security and Pensions, or the young folk by taking enough away from them to pay for it.

And the reason we have to shaft somebody is that the economy wasn't tended well enough to support paying both groups of people. So, who should we shaft? The old folks who had 40 years to run the economy and left it a smoking ruin, or the young folks who haven't had any say in it at all yet?

Boomers just want what they're owed, after all.

Here is a tale of two boomers.
I know one Boomer who is a late boomer born around 62, and another Boomer who was born in 46.
The late Boomer is a friend of mine he doesn't consider himself a boomer. he has two sons who are doing very well one of which happens to already have a house at the age of 26 and both sons are well on their careers. My friend has taken great lengths to ensure that his sons get a good start in life using many of the benefits that he himself had accrued through the military and corporations he worked for. So the other Boomer, because I had both boomers in the same room once and we were talking about one of those boys, and the older Boomer says " yeah but his dad helped him out so it really doesn't count".
The old boomers kids pretty much as one might would have expected, were left to fend for themselves and had did or done the usual thing of not getting their first house until they were 40 and things of that nature. I would also add that the older Boomer practically retired in his 40s.
Over the years I have seen what I've learned to call Boomer tech.
In just about every case where there would be some apprehension about the quality of construction work, or auto restoration,l or anything of that matter, if there was a boomer involved, it would be said " by the time that matters I'll be gone". Always say with a big grin too.
Over the years many times while doing repairs on homes or restoration on cars, I have run into this Boomer tech. I've seen many a deck with regular steel screws or nails instead of galvanized or stainless.
I've seen bondo just plastered over rust that had not even been descaled.
I can do this all day.
And yes while it can be mentioned that the boomers did not start the fire as Billy Joel would say, they sure as heck danced around the fire and cheered and partied while throwing an entire civilization into it. Because it was cool. Or because it was oppressive, or a lie, or racist, or profitable to burn it.
And for that, that is the sin of that generation.
The boomers do not deserve a damn thing. Not from us, not from their kids, not from future generations and not from posterity.
Because of what the boomers wrought, there might not even be a civilization that matters enough to judge them.
That is how bad things are.
I am glad to see boomers still booming ahead of a looking pandemic. That's the only way they know. It's just funny that they get irked by the idea of some latchkey kid in his 40s getting the last respirator.

It's also interesting to note that a lot of 'life partner' boomers, ie. those married since their 20s, have no children. I know a whole town which is almost full of them.

They are excessively wealthy, having had no dependants to care for, and live in great big houses, much too large for two people (which cost a lot to keep heated, note). Usually have his & hers cars, and take a lot of holidays. They plan to leave their money to charity in most cases i am aware of. Charities, of course, love these people, and they butter them up in the hopes of hitting the mother lode some day. Charities often chaired by, yes, you guessed it, boomers. Who fly first-class and dine on expense accounts.

@12: "Is this really representative? Maybe it's from growing up in the South, but most old boomers I know aren't like the writer here. A few are, there are always some."

About 50% representative, I'd say. The Brat Boom decade group is VERY bimodal. Half are decent folks, the other half are mind-bogglingly selfish.

Vox is right, of course. Western Civilization used to teach us to put the women and children first. Protect the next generation. This is the side of patriarchy the feminists forget about - the dubious privilege to "stand and be still to the Birkenhead Drill".

There's an old poem, "Horatius at the Bridge", by Lord Macaulay, that puts it the most eloquently...

Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the gate:
“To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds
For the ashes of his fathers
And the temples of his gods,

“And for the tender mother
Who dandled him to rest,
And for the wife who nurses
His baby at her breast,
And for the holy maidens
Who feed the eternal flame,—
To save them from false Sextus
That wrought the deed of shame?

“Hew down the bridge, Sir Consul,
With all the speed ye may;
I, with two more to help me,
Will hold the foe in play.
In yon strait path a thousand
May well be stopped by three:
Now who will stand on either hand,
And keep the bridge with me?”

More white/right wing cowardice. Blaming your problems on something as nebulous as a generation is safe, blaming non-whites, Jews, and, above all, the U.S. government is less so. Take a step back and look at this picture: they've got you throwing your grandparents under the bus instead of fighting back. The death of boomers will do nothing to advance any cause anyone around here is likely to support. the fantasy that it will does allow you to put off your reckoning with racial reality, and the reality of your relationship with the government, for one more day. The telling thing is, no other race does this, only cowardly whites. Anything that divides whites is objectively helping the enemy, to which of course the enemy doesn't object. Thus the meme and the lack of criticism of it from the left or the establishment.

There are more conservatives among baby boomers, there are more race realists and right wingers than among younger generations. They vote farther to the right. They were never given a chance to vote against the main problem, mass migration, the system never gave them the option. Maybe they should have fought - but then again maybe so should you.

As a Boomer, I fully accept the second and have taken steps to manage self care, am going the vitamin and herbal route and feel I am well prepared. I am also helping whoever will listen to prepare the same way. However, the first statement sounds like a murderous impulse. Recast as "let Boomers die" rather than squander limited medical resources, then that sounds ethically acceptable. Sometimes the baby get thrown out with the bathwater and that is never acceptable.

Hmmm lots of comments blaming “boomers” for everything that ails society. My guess is that there are many more boomers who have lived the same conditions you young-uns all bitch about… My first paycheck in 1977 had this thing called “social security” maybe... perhaps you’ve heard of it? NONE of us will ever see a Return on Investment from SS we could have had had we just been able to set aside the same amount to invest for ourselves. Pennies on the dollar is best I expect and in fact, it was in 1977 that I realized that social security was and is just a Ponzi scheme that steals from everyone both young and old alike, so I don’t include SS in my retirement/savings plan. After 43 years of work, I don’t think what I have saved will allow me to retire. Why? Because the elite boomers most of you bitch about have also destroyed my ability to take care of myself and family thru increasing medical expenses, increased taxes, inflation, etc. plus most of us “boomers” are NOT a part of the ruling class club even if we happened to be born of that “generation”. Think about how the Federal Reserve has manipulated the value of the Dollar since Nixon took us off the Gold Standard… the dollar I have today is worth less than two dimes from 1977. Inflation has stolen from me and the rest of us boomers 80% of our earnings and guess what? You all are in the same boat and you all voted for this. Well many of you. And if any of you have voted for “free shit” you ARE the problem. Nothing is free. Go work your ass off and learn to work smart.

You who have the audacity to blame ALL of us “boomers” for your perceived and real grievances will, in a few decades, understand that it is only a small group of elite, who seek power, that cause all of society’s problems. You have your little group just like we “boomers” do, as will the generation coming behind you. You are not immune. All I can say is welcome to the club of the bottom 98%; I know how you feel… kind of. Been there done that and experienced living at the bottom 5% and 43 years later, I get to feel comfortable living in the top 10%. Patience grasshopper. It takes time and smart work. Do the math… and you will note that you will be broke for most of the time you really could have used the money, and only when you are a grandparent, do you have the ability to help the grand kids.

Most boomers have not lived the life you imagined we have, most have worked hard only to just barely keep treading water and we too, are looking at the assholes of our generation who thought they knew better than the rest of us. And don’t think you “younger” generations know any better because that hubris will just continue the cycle you so despise. That said, triage culls the weak from the herd but before you all so quickly wish us all dead you might just try to learn from us old farts so you don’t make the same mistake we made in voting the elite socialists into power. And if you think you have a better plan than the older generations, history has already proved you wrong because human nature has not changed in forever but regardless, I do hope that the generations following the boomers can recover from this failed socialist experiment and be better off than those who came before.

@102 James Dixon: As I keep reminding people, a political generation is not twenty years. It's about ten, perhaps twelve. The Brat Boom that has earned the bad reputation was 1946-1955ish.

We're Baby Busters, born in the late 1950s and early to mid 1960s. Totally different from the nasty, selfish Brats. They were the drunken, drugged-up older siblings who held themselves a hell of a party...and stuck us with both the bill and the job of cleaning their mess up.

(OK, half the Brats aren't bad...but the other half make up for them)

"Many U.S. television ads pitched to Boomers contain the phrase: "You earned it!" Or: "You deserve it!""

Close. It's even worse than what you say.

"You earned it" was the standby for advertising to Silents and the Ww2 generation. [I.e. You worked hard, this is your reward for your efforts.]

In the 90's, the Madison Avenue advertising forms found out that wasn't resonating well with Boomers nearly as much as, "You Deserve It!" [You should have it because you eat & breathe.]

"The death of boomers will do nothing to advance any cause anyone around here is likely to support."

By Golly, you're absolutely right.

But we shouldn't stop with just the treason of the Boomers. Let every city, town, village, hamlet and crossroads in America start it's own Benedict Arnold Appreciation Society.

After all, even if he had been successful, Benedict Arnold's treason would not have harmed the fledgling country as much as the Boomer's crimes against the nation have, nor would he have become as enriched as so many Boomers have for their crimes.

Oh, and the Brits failed to show B.A. proper respect, too. So, let every city, town, village, hamlet and crossroads in the UK likewise also start a Benedict Arnold Appreciation Society, too.


[/sarc]

You don't seem to understand it.

and your comments about Jews... who cares, nobody told Boomers, "You must do as the Jews tell you!"
And the Baby Boomers were flat out warned in one of their own favorite magazines ... MAD MAGAZINE for crying outloud. I read the MADS that my father and uncles purchased starting from the mid 1950's, and they provided complete dissections of the very same brainwashing propaganda campaigns that the Boomers say they were helpless against.

There's no excuse for it. Back then, every kid would do whatever it took to get his hands on a copy of MAD, if only for the hour or two it took to read it from cover to cover.

You can read them for yourself -- Mad published a data DVD about 10~15 years ago with every single issue scanned into PDF format, and released it for about $60. You should be able to find it on torrent sites. Read the issues from the late 50's to 1970. Their FAVORITE magazine was flat out warning them to NOT fall for the propaganda.

Hell, in 1970, one of the back-cover fold-ins had the following when "folded in"

[Illustration: 1 Black sheep in a herd of white sheep]

Caption: Morality, then

[Illustration: 1 white sheep surrounded by hostile, glaring black sheep]

Caption: and now.


The purpose of the demonization of the Boomers is simple -- so that EVERY American from now to eternity holds them in lower repute than Benedict Arnold has ever been.

And Benedict Arnold is subject to a federal law going all the way back to the earliest years -- that his name may NEVER be written in stone or metal, anywhere in the country. The most permanent material that his name may be carved into is wood.

The goal is that the Boomer generation doesn't even get that.

"Can someone please define "eucivilizational"?

Another failing caused by the baby-boomer dominated educational establishment -- the loss of the ability to learn new words by identifying the prefixes, roots, and suffixes of unfamiliar words, and applying the meaning of each part.


Eu- is the same as "pro-"

Therefore, "pro-civilizational"

"eucivic" = "pro-civic"

"civ" as "civic, civilization, civilian, civil, civilized" referring to an orderly society & people in it (non-military).

I understand the sentiment here, but I am concerned about the application. Triage is about prioritizing cases according to severity and survivability, balancing the two so that the resources can be rationed to save the greatest number at a time. It is a wartime concept, when the dead and dying are wheeled in en masse after a major battle and then are more people than resources.

This should not be a rationing scheme when resources are obviously not even strained.

And, in practice, how would this triage work? Old white goyim are going to take it first, so that old others can survive?

Blogger Pathfinderlight March 14, 2020 8:39 PM  

In America, they basically invented the concept of the retirement home, a place where you pay to ship old people to so other people can take care of them. In other words, they saw everything wrong about how they were treated as children, multiplied it for their parents in their vulnerable years, and pocketed the difference. Also, they pushed for the schools to become prison.

Not a Boomer, but this endless daddy-issues Boomer-hatred crap seems ill-advised, illogical, and mis-aligned with the goal of Western civilizational persistence. Honoring the prior generation is a an explicit and fundamental concept in Christianity and the West.

Boomers didn't invent social security or communism or subversive foreign infiltration, they inherited it from their elders - just as we X-ers did. They failed to prevent these schemes from advancing and eroding our civilization - just as we X-ers did.

When the Boomers die off, we will be despised and blamed and scapegoated by younger generations in the same manner, with equally (in)valid criteria.


It was the boomers who broke the chain by failing to honour their own parents (and all of their forebears) by glorying in rebellious narcissim and paying no heed to maintaining and building on their civilisational inheritance. Naturally they taught their children to join them in their sin, and now they are reaping their reward.

You are confusing the follies of Boomers (which are admittedly many) with the follies of leftism. The problem with this confusion is that there are many non Boomer leftists. Whether it's 20 months due to deranged pillow hefting convalescent home staff members, and Wuhan virus, or 20 years due to lifespan, time will solve the Boomer problem. That is not the case with the leftist thinking problem. If nothing is done, the leftist thought problem might be with us for another 200 years.

Wow! Such anger! But I'm not surprised having seen Gen-X whine like this for 25 years now. But, here's the deal. Your first point? It's been proved mathematically by smarter minds than you or I that Social Security WILL NOT run out like you and your generation continue to claim over and over again, bless your little bigoted hearts. Yves Smith over at Naked Capitalism has decimated this particular fallacy fantasy over and over again and she does it far more elegantly than I ever could. So your first and most basic premise for being a hater is, um, gone.
Your second point is that women and children are first and only a narcissist would try to want to preserve older people in any way. Dude, you must be watching the Boomer era B flick Wild In The Streets over and over again. You know? The movie were Congress is taken over by young people (Boomers at the time) and vote in a law where anyone over 30 shall be euthanized? It's got fatty Shelly Winters squealing as the "youth" get rid of all the oldies. Yeah, that kinda society should work fine for all the now 50-something Gen-X'ers like you, at least say, for the next, um 5 years. Then it's your turn.

Wake up old timer, get woke, Social Security ain't going anywhere. Either are the Boomers, at least not yet.

Some people have apparently never learned the Tragedy of the Commons - the optimal action for each individual sometimes leads to community-wide disaster. In the case of Corona-chan, trying to treat each patient with maximum effort while having scarce resources will lead to a systemic collapse once the limit is reached (see empty store shelves for visual example). Assuming half the population locally gets this thing and even 10% need hospitalization, that's about 50,000 admissions for an area that has just under 4000 beds total and only 300 or so for ICU care, with probably 2/3 of that occupied at any given time.

That reality isn't a kill the Boomers message, it's a reality check that the needs of the society outweigh the needs of you and that the best way for older people to avoid being a statistic is to stay home until this blows over and stop doing risky things like going on cruises, going to the casino and wiping your hands all over the slot machines where you're blowing your Social Security money, or otherwise deciding your social calendar is more important than trying to stop this thing in its tracks. The boomers who invested in family will find themselves far better off than the ones who invested mainly or solely in themselves.

Not all boomers are terrible. My folks let my grandmother live with them for nearly 30 years as a widower right up until she died. Neither has to my knowledge ever cheated on the other, they had 3 kids, they've stayed married and in the same house the whole time, and they don't waste their money on luxury or vanity items.

The fact that you morons LITERALLY NEVER SHUT UP or stop talking about yourselves is not us allowing you to live rent-free in our heads.

Look at you, Boomer. You literally CANNOT stop talking about yourself. Ever. You not only didn't understand for decades that everyone hated you, you STILL don't understand why. Every time anyone expresses anything less than admiration for you prompts a lying "ha ha, I totally meant to do that" response.

And now your generation is so upset that all the younger generations despise you that it's trying to steal "the greatest generation" title for itself. Pathetic.

@164 "You save an 18 year old over a 30 year old."

Any 18-yr-old? An illiterate gangbanger over an adult man working in the water treatment plant? A soyboy over an MD? An 18-yr-old "town-bike" over a 30-yr-old mother with 4 beautiful White children?

Facile, useless, platitude.

Is it socialist to say we must save OUR nation? That some 'versions' of members of our nation are not as worth saving as other members?

I'm in favor of legal immigration into the United States. In my defense, it's because I want to move there within a year or so. Better a God-Emperor than a Sparkle-Socks soy-boy.

I would kick a non-European pregnant woman out of the hospital bed to put a 70yo European Boomer in it.

I really do not get the idea that we would allow ours to die to save the young of some fake American or alien because they are young.

Of course, there is some irony here as the Boomers have done absolutely nothing to reverse course on the demographic destruction of America. Still, blood is thicker than water. Let the huddled brown masses go home and get treatment in their own countries. To hell with them.

"Hmmm lots of comments blaming “boomers” for everything that ails society. My guess is that there are many more boomers who have lived the same conditions you young-uns all bitch about… My first paycheck in 1977 had this thing called “social security” maybe... perhaps you’ve heard of it? NONE of us will ever see a Return on Investment from SS we could have had had we just been able to set aside the same amount to invest for ourselves."


Your generation had, and continues to have, the numbers to fix all of these problems without any votes from anybody else.

What problems did you Baby Boomers fix?

In contrast, how many DOZENS of problems have you Baby Boomers utterly ignored, or exacerbated by doubling-down on some of the more stupid decisions of the WW2 generation?




Did Boomers pass the 1965 Hart-Cuellar Immigration Act? No.

In the intervening years, have you repealed or replaced the 1965 Hart-Cueller Immigration Act?

Why, no, you haven't. But you sure have doubled down on the stupidity by

A) reacting in utter HORROR at the mere mention that the southern Border should be treated like a border, where people have to present themselves to a Passport Control officer, an Immigration Officer, and a Customs Officer, juts like in ANY OTHER CIVILIZED NATION ON THE ENTIRE FUCKING PLANET.

Have you even managed to do that?

Hell fucking no, you haven't.

Because Mexican landscapers, or some other bullshit excuse. Because apparently America has a shortage of unemployed teenagers who used to do all of that work, and learned how to become independent and NOT reliant on government with such jobs.


B) inventing the H1-B visa, which has easily put 10 MILLION highly educated GenX and Millenial Americans out of work, and who are then deemed "overqualified" for lower-paying jobs

I can go on with several dozen others, but what's the point, you're just gonna play the, "I'm just a mere raindrop, how could I be responsible for the flood?" Yeah, you and all 100M of your fellow boomers.

And yet, when you all marched in the street for the Social Security surpluses of the 70's to be used to create a vast panapoly of overlapping and redundant welfare programs, so that you've got women who literally do nothing other than pop out more unsupervised, undisciplined, uncivilized criminal sprog, getting over $60,000/year in benefits.

You want to know WHY your Social Security isn't higher? Let me introduce you to your pets: Shaniqua and her 15 demon sprog.


Now fuck off, asshole.

We've heard all of your lame excuses before.
And that's all they are... EXCUSES. Not reasons. EXCUSES.

Go back to your retirement home and pick up another venereal disease... because that's what Boomer retirement homes are known for ... massive outbreaks of venereal diseases. Because even at the age of 70, you morons don't have so much of a lick of sense that's typical in other generations by the age of 20 (with the exception of the Millenials, who you've all indoctrinated into your own image).

"You who have the audacity to blame ALL of us “boomers” for your perceived and real grievances will, in a few decades, understand that it is only a small group of elite, who seek power, that cause all of society’s problems."

Your generations has far more votes than ALL of the world's elite put together.

Why didn't you do ANYTHING to stop any of this? Not even march in the street, because we all know full and well how your generation can AND STILL DOES flood the streets like mindless morons to promote every absolutely STUPID idea that comes down the pike.

Yet strangely, when it comes to good ideas, you can't be pulled away from watching TV.

What the fuck?

"First-rate trolling, Vox. As usual, the funniest responses come from the panting lapdogs hoping for appreciative pats on the head from the webmaster."

You totally misunderstand.

I have utterly despised the Boomers since 1969, when I was a mere 4 years old, and had not even stepped foot into a classroom yet, due to the amount of sheer chaos they were causing all over the country, including in my mundane little suburb. In 1971, they shut down Michigan Highway 1, a road so important, and with FAR more social significance even than Route 66 -- Life Magazine once did a full spread on a mere 10 miles of this highway, which is only about 25 miles long, from the Detroit River to Pontiac.

And why did Boomers shut down an 8-lane highway for 3 days?

Because the cops were rousting them out of the city's premier little-league park which they were trying to turn into a 24x7 drug bazaar.
The claimed "lack of recreational facilities" in a city with 36 public parks in a mere 4 square miles, at that time 3 bowling allies, a year round indoor hockey rink and over a dozen outdoor hockey rinks in the winter months, dozens upon dozens of tennis courts, 3 hobby shops, and that doesn't even count the various student programs during the academic year at the junior high school and senior high school level, nor the several dozen recreational programs available at that time during the summer months.

No, that was all just an excuse for the fact that they just wanted to be drug-addled losers making life miserable for everybody else.

"A generation of psychopaths" barely even scratches the surface of the truth.

I never realized that others my age have such an utter disgust with you assholes until Vox made posts like this.

What's really amazing... YOU pissed all over the accumulated wisdom of at least 4,000 years, you proclaimed that you would change the country, you ACCOMPLISHED that goal, and now, after the deed is done, you want to pretend like none of it is your fault.

Fuck you. When you die, I, and many other GenX'ers will gladly piss on your grave.

Come to think of it, I might not even wait until you're dead to piss on you -- after all, "if it feels good, do it!" right, Boomer?

Blogger Akulkis March 15, 2020 11:42 AM  

"Wow! Such anger! But I'm not surprised having seen Gen-X whine like this for 25 years now. But, here's the deal. Your first point? It's been proved mathematically by smarter minds than you or I that Social Security WILL NOT run out like you and your generation continue to claim over and over again, bless your little bigoted hearts. "

Only because you assholes imported half of the entire turd world to goose up FICA payments.

For the record, destroying your country for a few dollars is called TREASON, you asshole.

Don't know what strategies will work for today-- there are some ideas above about keeping engineers alive or such, but my point is that women and children were normally not considered save at all costs resources.

if we didn't rebut Boomer idiocy, the only voices in the public spaces would be Boomers droning on about how awesome they are, how awesome the Beatles are and how awesome rolling around in the shitmud at Woodstock was.

well after 50 years of this retardation, i'm a bit sick of listening to it.

and i'm a grown man. so when you insist on making the conversation all about you, i'm going to point out how you're wrong and stupid and narcissistic.

That's not what the rallying cry is about, though. "As long as it's legal!" is BoomerCons saying they're fine with mass third world immigration, H1B programs, etc. as long as it's officially sanctioned by Congress.

@Ariadne Umbrella:

I'm anti-abortion because I cannot reconcile it with my Christian belief, but I am not pro-life, since it's usually unchristian anyway.

And personally, I'd like to have been aborted---Jeremiah 20:14-18; Job 3:3; Ecclesiastes 4:3---and without forcing marriage again and implementing some kind of eugenics, we will only produce more like myself.

For who wants to be ugly, dumb, hunchbacked, mentally ill? Imagine Vox Day with an IQ of 106! He'd be a midwit, like I am! The horror! Yet, I somehow *have* to exist, not because God wanted it, but a reckless, horny guy had to satisfy his wicked lust.

That's our lowly origin, nothing to be proud of (Wisdom Salomonis 7:2).

Re. boomers: they may have done a lot of damage -- but Generation X wallowed in debauchery and decadence too. I'd say that even those generations of the mid to late 19th century are to blame for a lot of our current ills.
