/pol/ on the Baby Boomers

A posting on Boomers - not to be confused with Boomerposting - on /pol/:
Greatest Generation (GG) starts a company. GG builds the company from the ground up. GG hires American workers, uses American products, and takes great pride in what his company will do for his family and his country.

GG gives his kid Baby Boomer (BB) a job, knowing that BB will work his way up and someday inherit the company GG built. GG knows that this company will prosper and help the family for generations.

BB eventually inherits the company. BB gives his kid GenX (GX) a job for a while, but eventually fires GX to save costs. BB sends most jobs overseas and imports cheap foreigners to make his own way in life like BB did. GX must now compete against cheap labor.

GX has a kid Millennial (ML). ML complains about the low wages, lack of jobs, and competing with the offspring of all the foreign workers BB imported. BB calls ML entitled and whiny. BB says how hard he had it, and how he had to make his own way in life while ML is just entitled.

BB sells his father's company, cashes out, and retires with riches he never plans to give to his kids. He is going to spend all his money before he dies while collecting social benefits from tax revenue from all the foreigners his political peers continue to import.

This story applies to every aspect of American society. One generation took everything their parents gave them, cashed out, and squeezed society for everything it had. They handed their kids and grandkids the financial and social consequences, and had the audacity to blame everyone but themselves for what happened.
/pol/ is always right.

However, there is one piece that is omitted, and that is that the Silent Generation set the stage for the rapacious Baby Boomer raping of the USA with the 1965 Immigration Act that destroyed the homogeneous American nation.

We can, and should, blame the Boomers for their short-sighted, self-serving behavior, and for attempting to benefit from the situation rather than attempting to correct it, but we cannot blame them for something they obviously could not have done.

In my experience the Silents tend to sympathize with their Xer and Millennial grandkids. They actually lived through a depression and know what it's like. Boomers for whatever reason are physically incapable of even attempting to understand it.

YES. Particularly about the Silent Generation.

Here's Fr. Ripperger discussing generational spirits within the scope of 6 generations. He talks about the Silent Generation, Boomers, etc. Hope it's useful:

Absolutely. The boomers have more than enough to be blamed for, we don't need to blame them for things that aren't their fault too.

I remember a co-worker (also a gen-xer) that used to say "take a cab, your grand children can walk". This was over a decade ago, he was probably in his late 20s. While it sounded "hip" I suppose, it always seemed incredibly wrong and jarring to me.

The Boomers are the generation that received a prosperous family farm complete with a barn filled with the bounty of a generous harvest. The Boomers quickly ate the whole of the harvest, and, still hungry, mortgaged the farm so they could glut themselves further.

Not content with that, they pushed their children off the farm so they could bring in sharecroppers to grub the soil until its fertility and richness were spent.

When the sharecroppers got upset with declining yields and their meager wages, the Boomers promised them the land and proceeds of all future harvests.

Heedless of the damage already done, the Boomers made sure to hunt through the barn and eat the seed corn. Every single kernel.

Then, to the wonder of all, the Boomers got angry when their children pointed out the fact that the farm land is barren and sterile, the finances hopelessly in arrears, hostile sharecroppers are looking to take the land for themselves, and and there is not a seed left to plant.

Blogger dc.sunsets September 06, 2017 8:38 AM  

GG'ers suffered through the Great Depression and got slaughtered on South Pacific beaches because their parents embraced Wilsonian Utopianism.

They died having spent the last 50 years coasting as the accrued wealth of America was pawned to the bankers, globalist oligarchs and the Chinese.

Every aspect of the last 50 years was open, obvious, catastrophically short-sighted, yet every adult since 1961 has part ownership.

You want to blame someone? Dig up the corpses of those who elected the sellouts to everything that occurred in 1913. The die was surely cast then, and everything since was no more than people responding to perverse incentives.

Really? Human greed is a Baby Boomer phenomenon? Come on... I do agree that Boomers have been doing that since the later 1970's. But I thought greed was a human short coming.

As for the cashing out of a business for a single persons greed. I have seen that several times in my career. It's now happening at the company I work for now. They have positioned themselves to be able to sell off billion dollar businesses just by selling stock. No government oversight at all. It's a smart plan for some people who want to get billionaire status quickly. but it devastates all the investors and employees to a large degree.

I don't know. I have argued against the baby boomer accusations. But I always fell short. So I have been watching and did a little exploring and research. What I came up with is that it's true. The baby boomer generation are a contentious lot. Greedy and yes very much self absorbed. I get a terrible feeling that God is not happy with this generation at all. They have all but killed Christianity in this country. Baby Boomers sins are numerous and heinous. I am at a loss. I'm sorry, I cannot help with this. The baby boomers my age have got to be the worst of the baby boomers.(about 55) I see so many of them that are quite wealthy. I am not so much. More like the guy that might be able to retire if I can invest without losing my shirt when the economy goes sour. I get looks from these wealthy guys my age and they seem to see failure. Like I am the failure. Maybe I am. Who knows.

The way boomers describe the millennials isn't right. I see them in my kids, I see them at work. They have their own styles and music, but isn't that expected? I work with some damn fine millennial engineers.

I was seriously wrong about boomers from the beginning 1946? to the late boomers 1965? The entire lot of them are a horrible generation. But they aren't all like that. I bet most aren't. I hope I wasn't and isn't and hope I won't be.

Ok, enough babbling.

1. Gen Xer has kids and starts a family.
2. Gen Xer starts his own business.
3. BB's retirement schedule is too packed to ever watch the children.
4. Gen Xer works hard in the after hours to make his business competitive, even while working a day job.
5. BB can't understand why Gen Xer's business isn't thriving, after all his did just fine and he'll tell you all about it and all about the important people he knows now.
6.Gen Xer homeschools his kids and makes it his mission to provide a stable household. BB disapproves.
7. BB dies and leaves nothing to the next generations, not even his underwater home.
8. Gen Xer doesn't notice because he's too busy listening to Baby Metal with the fam.

The Baby Boomer generation must be made to serve as an object of ridicule and be made a great example of for Western peoples and future generations. If the West survives as more than a shell of it's pre-60s self the historical legacy of the Boomers will be described as it is above.

The baby boomers are not to blame imo. I wouldn't even primarily blame things on the 1965 immigration act. The blame for the death of the west rests primarily on those that allowed women to be granted voting privileges. All other bullshit - whether it's the 65 immigration act, no-fault divorce, or socialist economic cancer - never would have happened if only male soldiers or male tax-payers had exclusive voting rights.

Blogger peter blandings September 06, 2017 9:16 AM  

which is it? history is cyclical? or, it's all the BB's fault? you can't have it both ways. you had to have been there. we had our share. 'nam was no fun, and we didn't even get to vote on it. the voting age at that time was 21. in 1965, when the real spear was chucked, the first BB's were 16 or 17, couldn't vote. all the welfare programs were passed by the GG's, plus medicare, medicaid, all kinds of stuff. and again it would be 5 years before the first BB's could vote and another 20 before they could hold office. all the gears were put in motion before we were even in the game. and the so called GG's were solid democrats for another 40 years and voted for all the programs that have bankrupted the u.s. there's plenty of blame to go around. and Xer's and ML's are the most devoted PC's you'll ever find. but, hey, if it makes you feel better, sure, we'll take the blame. just do us one little favor; do a small bit of research on LBJ and teddy kennedy. then take a look at WWI, WWII, KOREA, VIETNAM. all the wealth that was wasted, and the blood. in today's dollars, it would pay off the national debt. but it was spent for nothing but the egos of a few democrat presidents. the thesis only makes sense if you begin history with the BB's and pretend that nothing came before. learning to read was the stupidest thing i ever did. far smarter to blame somebody. wish i could do that.

The Baby Boomers would not have done what they did without centralized media under the control of hostile elites, telling them what to do. This mass mind control in the hands of the enemy is the problem. The generational analysis overlooks how easily the sheep are controlled. The only reason the resistance exists today in large numbers (like /pol/) is because of the internet as a decentralized communications platform, allowing us to network our brains together to see behind the curtain. Without it, this generation would be cheering on white extinction.

All prior generations deserve some of the blame, to be sure. But pointing out that fact doesn't get Boomers off the hook. They are unique, as a generation, in having learned nothing from either their elders or their own experience. Never have so few squandered so much from so many. I know good Boomers. But even the conscientious ones have a sense of their utter blamelessness for their own actions that is breathtaking.

Blogger ABC September 06, 2017 9:35 AM  

Vox, I think an extremely important question that the Alt-Right needs to answer if it ever comes in power to prevent our current path from happening ever again is this: Was multiculturalism, mass immigration, SJW hegemony, PC, etc all inevitable after 1945? If not, how do we stop it? People like Greg Johnson say that the 1965 immigration act was inevitable after Jewish immigration to America during the 1880s.

I looked at some charts. The abortion rate the past ten years is lower than in the 1980s. Also, the divorce rate in the past ten years is lower than in the 1980s. Those facts show that the Boomers--who were aborting and divorcing in the 1980s--don't give a damn about those who come after them.

Because of the Tesla Giga factory, we now have in Reno thousands of workers imported from all over the world who are being paid wages so little that they cannot even afford to rent an apartment.If only Elon Musk were GenX or a Millennial, things would have been so much better.

Exactly, S1AL. Boomers gonna Boomer. They shift the blame. It can't be there fault. It has to be someone else. GenX knows it has made and continues to make its share of failures and screw ups. We are not good. We've made dumb decisions as a generation. But we can learn from our mistakes and the mistakes of those who went before. Boomers do not seem capable of this.

It was the extremely conformist Silent Generation, too young to fight in WW2, that preceded the Boomers. It numbered such luminaries as John McCain, and is the only generation in American history not to elect a President. They had an easy time getting jobs, and just followed orders....The Civic Generation, that fought the war, preceded them, set up the American Empire under FDR and Truman. They were builders, but the problem was that they built something that was evil....

Blogger Reno Chris September 06, 2017 10:03 AM  

Gen X and Millennials constantly admit that their generations have serious issues.

So the problem started as GG opened the doors to a disaster and got the ball rolling, Boomers made it much worse and Gen-X and Millennials continue in the same traditions to make it even worse. That seems about right and consistent with the facts.
But its not as good a story as the one VOX told. When you are making up fiction, its important to craft a story that holds the attention of your readers, and tickles their ears. VOX's tale is one of the good GG who made one mistake, the evil Boomer bad guys and the poor put upon Gen-X and Millennials - and that's just not consistent with the facts.

BB's fault or cyclic history???? Its a good question but the reality is not binary the answer is BOTH.
The cycles exist and repeat, time and again, the ability to "control" or even seriously damp those cycles is a interesting and complicated questions. It would take planning on 100 yr+ scales, a homogeneous society and a VERY low time preference. Asians or westerners may get to that point one day but we aren't their yet.
Yes the boomers and their ilk stood at a critical junction and had the ability to make a collective choice to engage in gluttony, consuming the seed corn of society or enforcing restraint. For what its worth every major society to date has failed this test (to the best of my knowledge.

Boomers are secondary. Upon understanding the meaning of family, genetic relatives, and the irreversible consequences of racemixing, this becomes a deathmatch that only Nazis have dared answer. Some people may not experience it, but there is an overwhelming disgust response to racemixing that can't be debated away. It has always existed and has become conscious with identity politics. This disgust response then extends to everything that would prevent its remedy, including people that do not acknowledge it, and especially boomers and Jews that aggravated it.

If you want correct answers, you're going to have to switch to thinking in terms of a 10-year political generation. 20 years is too low a sample rate, you'll get false data.

As an example, people born in the late 1950s and early 1960s get lumped in with the Brat Boom, sometimes with Generation X. Really, they are neither - the term I use is Baby Bust. The Brat Boomers had a hell of a party, trashed the place...and left the Baby Busters and those afterward to clean up and pay the bills.

And yes, the "Greatest Generation" tended to live off the credit of World War II. Once they got to the levers of power, their track record wasn't so very good. If you look at the GG Presidents, you've got one great one (Reagan), two OK ones (Ford and Bush the Elder), and four disasters (Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Carter). Pretty sorry record.

Luckily for us Millennials, everyone in this country except the Deep State and the rural working class is ridiculously soft and corrupt. Strong, moral men with a sense of purpose can get a lot accomplished against such weak opposition -- see the God Emperor as an example.

Blogger Sheila4g September 06, 2017 10:53 AM  

I get the Boomer hate and am happy to accept my share as a late Boomer. I was definitely an insane liberal through my youth, having been marinated and raised in that thinking. Personally I wasn't old enough to vote in '76 and had just gone overseas in 1980 and never looked into how to get registered from abroad, and so voted for the first time in '84 - by which time I had done a 180 and registered as a Republican (hey, that was the extent of the choice I knew of and, believe me, it was a revolutionary act among my family and friends).

I find no blame in Gen X or Millenials as having been the children of daycare and divorce and f-d up families, and that is definitely on the Boomers. And abortion too - they own it. Special snowflake that I am, I never participated in any of those pathologies and one of the reasons my family's finances have not equaled many of our peers is because I did not work but stayed at home to care for my family.

Obviously everyone's opinion is colored by their personal circumstances and experiences, and I would definitely split the blame between the Boomers and the Silents (my own parents, born 1929/1930). They were the children of Ellis Island immigrants - and while I wholeheartedly agree the Jews deserve the lion's share of the blame, I agree with Vox that the Italian and Irish and other immigrants of that generation all took part. They were the ones who responded to each economic or social crisis by demanding more government, more services, more money, moar MOAR. Again, everyone knows exceptions - we're speaking generally and generationally here. Those Silents and Boomers were the ones who have continually voted for more gibs - to themselves as well as all others except for their own children or grandchildren. Their economic decisions and wars shaped the mess we're in today. Yes, they only had network tv, but it was their implicit trust in "government" or "media" that made them swallow the lies whole instead of trying to dig a little or see what was behind the rhetoric and public facade. But again, as Vox frequently notes, MPAI.

Other than trying not to repeat the errors of the past, I don't know what is to be done. Trying to vote our way out of this, even if one believes one's purported reps give a rat's bottom about one's individual vote or phone call or email, will still be stymied by the brown hordes, the emotive women, and the Silents and Boomers who think Ryan's a "conservative" and McCain's a "war hero." And yet they're the largest White cohort in the country - as they die off, the browning of America - for which they both are responsible, simply speeds up. And they argue that they managed "just fine" with public schools - so why is it such a problem for their White grandchildren to go to school with Juanita and Treshaundra and Ho Ping? I don't think there's any changing that thinking and the demographic numbers fill me with despair, totally aside from immigration (as all here know, it could be stopped cold today and we're still under 50% White within 10 years, barring massive repatriation and/or bloodshed). Which is why I read here, and other evil notsee sites, to keep from wallowing in that sense of impending and well-earned doom. God is righteous and will not be mocked, but He's also merciful and that's all I have left to rest my hope on.

Reading through the comments, I notice that we appear to be fighting among ourselves, GGs, BBs, GXs, and MGs, instead of focusing on the real enemy, the progressive/communist/fascist/globalists. We should not be blaming various generations for what were subversive polices enacted at the behest of progressive/communist/fascist/globalists.

Many of the major inflection points, such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or the 1965 Immigration Act were decades in the making. They didn't just come into existence out of the blue. The Civil Rights Act was the culmination of decades of litigation, including numerous Supreme Court cases, decades of social engineering, and decades MSM propaganda. The Immigration Act was over a decade in the making, and looks to be a spin-off of the civil rights movement.

Our enemies are the progressive/communist/fascist/globalists who seek to genocide whites, destroy Christianity, destroy Western Civilization, and destroy the United States. Let's focus on our enemy, and not fight among ourselves.

Earlier generations should have known better, certainly, but by the time the Boomers had power, it was perfectly obvious how broken things were, but the Boomers fixed nothing and instead used every perverse incentive they could to enrich themselves at societies cost.

They didn't create the situation, but they gleefully exploited it for all they could.

That I think has become my biggest gripe in this debate. Its getting old and even many of the boomers and older who taught me well don't seem to get that things really have changed and tactics/strategy has to change with it. I'm getting the same trite answer I got twenty years ago in my teens. "Pull up yer bootstraps kid and stop whining."

There was a big blow up on this issue in the past week on the WRSA blog with some hilarious boomer defenses and a long rant over on raconteurreport. Someone actually tried to counter the housing bubble crash/effects by pointing out that their kids had succeeded and owned their own house, so you can do it too!

Progressivism in its modern form was well established after the Civil War and soared after World War I. The Woodstock kids were in no way representative of the Boomers but they set the public tone for all of us. I suspect most of us believed in the Magic Dirt theory of citizenship and the Frank Capra version of Civic Nationalism. Furthermore, as we were growing up, we saw that the serious money was being made by guys passing paper around, rather than by serious, methodical production.

However, the ball was dropped by at least three or four generations, not just one.

And the problem is… it’s the Millennials, a generation that knows they can expect nothing from the status quo. Furthermore, they lack tools for conflict resolution. Their generation is split between progressives and conservatives. And because they are neither the largest nor the most influential generation, they have no way to implement anything.

Being an open millennial conservative prior to 2012 was basically a free pass for liberals to treat you like crap in the public sphere. That's part of why they're so triggered by the shift.

When this 50 year lurch into plural madness (and its attendant 36 year lurch into frothing-at-the-mouth fiscal insanity) ends, we will all need plenty of targets on which to vent our insatiable rage.

Every "beat the Boomers" thread always looks like a bunch of children-of-divorce who have nothing but contempt for their self-indulgent parents. In that regard, I certainly can't blame them.

If you want to hear from someone who was there when what's been LOST was still around, talk to an end-of-BB'er. Anyone born much after 1960 simply has NO IDEA what is lost.

America was an entirely different place prior to the late 1960's, and by the mid-1970's even the lingering fragrance of that magic place was replaced by rot.

Arrogance, self-indulgence and pure, unadulterated stupidity do not know generational boundaries.

PS: Those who hit adulthood in the 1981-1984 period are the only "older" people who already knew what this current malaise is like. The GG'ers who knew the GD are almost all dead or senile. So find a late-stage BB'er and ask him to buy you a beer over which to commiserate. He probably knows.

Generally, the valid critiques of the sharp leftward turn made by the country in the 1960s, was due to generations before Boomers. Boomers, who started voting substantially conservative in the 1980s, we simply outvoted by the “new Americans” starting with Clinton.

Sorry that the Boomers (think white males) couldn’t fix the pile of crap we were handed that Teddy Roosevelt started, Franklin took into high gear, and Johnson and Ted Kennedy completed with War of Poverty and the Replace Conservative Americans Act of 1965.

And I thank you for your service sir. Yet, how has that battle been going since Heller? Oh, you've won at the fed level but are starting to lose at the state level. The battle is never ending. Its been going on since '68 and the GCA (Nazi gun laws... say, I guess all who passed it are indeed Nazis).

Roe v Wade has been mostly a dead issue now for 20 years. Why not the gun rights battle? How is it that the NRA and the SAF keep losing in state battles? The SAF still advocates fighting in the legislatures and the courts even when they fail miserably. The SAF couldn't even hold off the commies in Seattle a few years ago and demonized the rabid rabble for not following their idiotic split the vote strategy with a clear compromise bill.

The NRA and SAF spend more time worrying about their image and income than caring about the issue. The moderates in the gun rights crowd scream "thats not who we are" when protesters burn effigy's of corrupt anti gun dem governors. Then turn around and virtue signal about how pro life they are. Then back to talking about realpolitik regarding healthcare, guns, immigration, etc..

Blaming Boomers for everything the Democrats did in the 1960s is like blaming the Silent Generation for everything FDR did. They simply were not old enough at the time to make any such decisions. (The first election I voted in was 1972, but only because they lowered the voting age to 18. My kid brother, also a Boomer, was not old enough to vote until 1984, and I do not know that he bothered.)

My Dad was born at the beginning of the Great Depression and was not old enough to vote until 1952. He was too young for WWII, but his two older brothers certainly participated. The oldest brother was part of the first cohort of 18 year olds to join the Army after Pearl Harbor. These are the Silent Generation and many of them were not 21 in time to get credit for FDR or WWII.

It's very convenient to have someone on whom to blame the evils of the world, so I suppose the Boomers are a convenience. I think people might include me as a boomer--I was born in 1948. Actually, I'm the Hun Bastard, because my mother was German and my father didn't hang around. She did eventually marry another American soldier...so here I am.

All this stuff that the Boomers are accused of doing...don't they require some sort of power? Some connections? I don't remember making a decision to start importing dot-heads. If anyone had asked me, I would have said, "they have to go home". But nobody asked me. I despised the rapacious CEOs I had to work for, but I didn't get a vote on them nor their stupid policies because I wasn't on any board of directors.

I was in favor of the Civil Rights Movement, yes. And I protested against the Vietnam war. I thought it was pointless, and I haven't changed my mind. I have no theoretical objection to killing people, but believe you ought to at least have a good reason.

Please try to remember that I could not see the future; how was my 18 year old self to know that the ruling elite would see in these movements the schema for perpetual dominance? Of course I would have voted against Affirmative Action, had anyone asked me. I thought extending The Struggle to women was stupid--they've always had their own sort of power. And queers? Come on. And now the new group they've made up, whatever they are--the sexually confused I guess. You seriously want to blame that sh*t on me? Well, if it makes you feel better.

There were a few very clever people in my general age group who saw a way to manipulate an entire nation through its conscience. The Social Justice Warriors created false moral levers to manipulate people. Meanwhile, the sharp operators cleaned up financially by screwing everyone. You think the H1B visas didn't hurt me? I worked in the computer industry (after helping Algor invent the internet). I know they took jobs and kept wages down. You think I didn't get discriminated against because I'm a white man? Think again.

If you want to have a neat architectonic of generations, with mine to serve as whipping boy, help yourselves, I guess. But it ain't true. All I did was work my butt off, rolled with the punches when the industry got more and more screwed, and raised a family. For what it's worth, I'm certainly hoping to leave something for the kids and grandkids.

I used to be considered Gen X but now I'm considered late BB. Looking back, I can clearly see that trail of flotsom that seemed to follow the boomers, which was, I think, the natural result of rebellion, solipsism, and unrestrained promiscuity and drug use.

My wife and I recently watched two movies: The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (1966) and The Parent Trap (1961). The profound changes in the culture (as presented by Disney) could not be more clear, particularly when it comes to the societal solidarity, self-respect, and orderliness that seems to come through. That world was gone by the 70s, and frankly, I wouldn't mind having some of that back, if not for me then for my children.

I dont think it is very helpful to talk about the different generations as if they are different species and create all this generational rivalry. A single generation is not long enough for significant genetic differences to evolve. Most people from whatever named generation would behave the same as the other generation if raised in that time. Each generation raises the next one so the GGs passing the 1964 immigration reform can be balmed on the previous generation in charge during WW2 filling GGs canon fodder heads with too much pro communist propaganda.

Yet for some reason EVERY BB had to defend the BB collective to the death. I don't understand.

Of course you're not "Like that."
If you were some wicked liberal hippy you wouldn't be on VP. No one is assuming otherwise.

Members of the Silent Generation destroyed this country. The boomer generation was just the first to notice.

The Vietnam war is responsible for the activities of BB's. The flood of immigrants into the country was also caused by the Silent Generation. LBJ and Ted Kennedy did more damage to this country than any cluster of a million Boomers you care to mention.

But let's get down to the truth.

Satan is destroying the world. Read Romans 1. It sounds like it was written this morning.

Splitting America into groups, either generational or ideological, is just part of his plan.

Don't be part of it.

"IOW, there was a "Boom" but the "Boomers" as a group with consistent characteristics does not exist.

There's a word for things which are only united by the name used to classify them. I have forgotten this word. Given the radical differences across 2 decades and between coasts and heartland, I think it is appropriate in this case."

In this post you demonstrate that you're a pedant who lacks the ability to distinguish between generalized characteristics and absolute descriptors.

Actually, that's true of almost all of your posts.

"The Vietnam war is responsible for the activities of BB's."

The Vietnam war was certainly a factor, but far from the only factor, and the war was itself a symptom of some of those factors, a hot spot in the Cold War.

I used to work for a company started by a BB. He had no intention of handing over to his two sons, unless they bought it from him. But those sons had been working for him in that very company their whole lives, so the money they would be buying the company off him with would be from their own wages from him plus a bank loan- effectively meaning they would have worked for him for free for decades.
