Vibrants vibe and Boomers boom

Arizona tries to simultaneously play the "I love the hate" card while simultaneously claiming that all the younger generations are going to die too. Not a convincing look. 2 of 5 Pillows.

Vox Popoli has done so much for the local pop corn industry I think they owe you at least a Christmas card or a thank you note. Day was interesting in his college days but that was then and now is now and what was once interesting has become fetishistic and curmudgeonly in the current iteration. And that's where to pop corn comes in when I pass by here a little snack goes well with the unintended entertainment.

And BTW, While you're so happily anticipate our coming pillorying anticipate your own because from this old boomers point of view the world at large has a date with a historic event that's going to leave multitudes dead. Perhaps billions as other soi disant elites massage their fetishes that will consume the masses without regard to Race Religion or political affiliation. Now enjoy the show kiddies.

Rumpole, on the other hand, pretends that while he was previously down with the substantive criticism, it's merely being told to shut up that really gets his generational goat: 1 of 5 Pillows.

Re: "Shut up, Boomer" Many earlier posts on the suject consisted of fact based criticism. Much of it was entirely valid. The Woodstock and Villages ones were really priceless, and likewise, many of the fact based comments were great (at least when the facts were correct). Having been spoiled by this and the other hearty fare, served up by a master, it is disappointing to see bare, insipid, ad hominem pap. 

Jim appears to be on the verge of awareness. It will be interesting to see if he ever ponders the reason the younger generations see no point in asking Boomers for help and advice:

There is a lot of old school knowledge that is being lost as boomers die off and retire. I have seen this in a engineering lab I worked in. The trend is to rely on computer models to rush products into production. Recall rates have been high on New products that the old guard would not allow to go to market. I spent 35 years in that engineering center (ag and construction components) I can tell you how the younger generations hate the boomers and will not seek them out for help or advice. 

Marky Mark indulges in the great Boomer pasttime. "Nothing that we did is our fault! It's our PARENTS' fault. Or maybe our grandparents'. But definitely not ours! Also, we changed the world!" 3 of 5 Pillows.

This gets tiring, as it wasn't just the Boomers who put us in the pickle we're in; there are plenty from earlier generations who got us here. Exhibit One is the Hart-Cellar Act, which was passed by those who preceeded the Boomers by decades. Exhibit Two is the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Were the Boomers' parents even alive back then?

As for Nelson Mandela, he mostly arose to prominence back when we had the Big Three TV networks; if they didn't speak about something, it didn't happen. He was practically canonized as a SAINT, for goodness sake! Since the Big Three canonized him, the viewers believed Walter Cronkite and company.

If the last year has taught us nothing else, it's that the media are still very powerful. We may not like to think that, given the distrust for the media; we don't like to think that, because we also know what's going on. The proof of their power is how almost everyone masked up during the COVID scamdemic. That's with a viable alternative media; that's with huge DISTRUST of the MSM! Can you imagine how powerful the media were back in the days when there were only the Big Three TV networks? 

But Ghostsniper offers us some classic Peak Boomer: He's got two things. He's got grit, bootstraps, and his generation. He's got three things. He's got grit, bootstraps, his generation, and The Beatles. And you're all just jealous of that. 4 of 5 Pillows.

"Shut up, Boomer"

=================

Has anything more pussified ever been written?

And written by a person only a few years shy of boomerhood himself.

The most pathetic part is all the other pussy trolls who are easily led by this childish screed.

A few decent posts and then, bam, another rant composed by a schoolgurl.

Just like predictable clockwork.

What is it, simple envy/jealousy?

Or something more manic like bipolar disorder created by a trashed out childhood that lasted well into adulthood?

Dood, get a clue, even if you have to buy it. srsly 

I wonder, what part of "Shut up, Boomer" is so hard for these Boomers to understand? We accuse them of being totally unable to stop talking about themselves, and they deny the accusation by conclusively proving it. But we genuinely aren't interested in their opinions. We aren't interested in what they think, say, or believe. We've all had to listen to their interminable self-obsessed soliloquies for literally all of our lives, and we're not listening anymore.

Now it's our turn. We'll do the talking and we're going to relentlessly mock them and pile contempt upon them until The Day of the Pillow arrives and the Boomers finally, blessedly, fall silent once and forevermore.

Repent, Boomer. The sands of your hourglass are running out.

As a boomer I can attest to certain facts. Boomers sit around bullshitting--- a lot, drinking and they all think they're comedians, not in any order. When I raise the fact that we fucked up everything for our children and farther into the future, boomers loose it. It's epic. Just ask a boomer if we have left our children a civil functioning society, silence then rationalization. We're pathetic.

The only problem with that is that it gives one a couple of seconds of vengeful satisfaction and/or righteous indignation. But it doesn't solve any problems. What are we going to do to solve the problems? Wouldn't our energy be better spent focusing on the problems and coming up with solutions? When the last boomer is gone, the problems are still with us until we do something about them.

It’s revealing how none of those simpletons are capable of addressing any of their generational crimes. Instead they blather – often semi-literately – about themselves and the figments of beast system lies that make up their vapid imaginations.

Replacing ‘processing actual information’ with ‘projecting responsibility-avoiding delusion and raw greed’ perfectly sums up their generational ethos.

The fact that you are not the first to do evil does not excuse your evil.

The destruction of America goes at least as far back as the War of Southern Conquest, to say nothing of the shaky ground on which we were founded (that is, the so called "Enlightenment"). However, the fact that Lincoln's generation sent thousands to die in the service of undoing the Constitution, or that the early 20th century saw the creation of shadowy financial and intelligence cabals does nothing to cover the sins of the Boomers.

You inherited the wealthiest, strongest, most advanced society in known history, and you squandered what you could while setting fire to the rest. Papa Stalin couldn't have done a better job destroying America than you lot. 9/11 is hardly a blip in the history of distruction your ilk have wrought.

You leave nothing behind. No culture, no wisdom, no wealth, and certainly no ethics. Your children curse your names, as do their children, and as will their children.

Boomers as a distinguishable cohort could, did, and continue to, single-handedly as a generation, prevent succeeding generations from cleaning up the mess that Boomers themselves embraced rather than bemoaned.

Blogger Ferdl July 16, 2021 8:45 AM  

Tbh I would like to understand more deeply what made the boomers into boomers so that we could make sure that a generation like the boomers won't happen again. My current working hypothesis is that there are two types of people, those able to make moral judgements on their own and the moral free riders, and that boomers represent the first generation where the morally blind have been elevated to leadership positions by their foreign handlers on a sufficiently vast scale to poison every good and sane aspect of our societies. By "leadership positions" I don't just mean the most important politicians. Instead I mean everyone in a somewhat prominent position in society, whether that is in the business world, in the world of music, radio, movies or TV, in academia, in the news business, in politics, in the bureaucracies and even in the hierarchies of our churches.

The idea that boomerdom is the empowerment of moral blindness is compatible with the one thing about boomers that I cannot explain otherwise: Why do most boomers still support all the evil that they have created even though it is now so obvious that this evil is destroying our societies? Why are they still advocating against protecting families and wny are they so unwilling to help even their very own offspring? It is one thing to have fallen for all the false ideas that make up boomer ideology when they were young. It is a completely different thing to defend that evil once the evidence that unambiguously proves the evilness of those ideas is in front of all of us.

From the perspective of my own explanation of boomerdom, I have to say that VD's reaction to boomerdom is probably the only thing that can be done which has some bite. If you face morally blind people there is absolutely no point in discussing with them in the hope to "reform" them. Only destroying their social reputation or any other means that teaches them that boomerdom is now associated with low status might move the boomers themselves and might prevent the morally blind of our own generations to seek success by following the boomer example.

When a boomer is dead, is he grateful?

Blogger Jack Aubrey July 16, 2021 8:46 AM  

As a member of the Boomer g-g-g-generation I have nothing to say in our defense, but I can contribute to the mockery.

I hear it in the bedroom,
As soft a sound can be,
A queen-sized pillow fluffing and it’s gonna come for me.
I’m stuck in Boomer daycare, with the die-verse-ity,
And that pillow keeps a-fluffing; I know it fluffs for me.

When I was just a young lad,
My Grampa told me “Kin,
always be a good Dad, and help your children win.”
But I bought a second home in Vegas, just to play the slots,
And I spent the kids’ inheritance on cars and trips and pot.

I voted for the H-1B,
The gibs, the wars, and debt,
I loved the migrant labor and the extra-marital sex.
Well I know I have it coming, I know I can’t be free,
But that pillow keeps on fluffing, and that’s what tortures me.

Well if they freed me from this daycare,
And gave their ear to me,
I’d impart all my wisdom, they could bootstrap just like me!
Far from Boomer daycare, that’s where I want to stay,
And I hope that fluffy pillow comes for someone else today.

Vox,

I'm flattered that you quoted me, but even with my words in plain view, they were nevertheless twisted and misconstrued. What I SAID was: Boomers aren't SOLELY RESPONSIBLE for today's mess! Sure, they played their part, but they didn't do it alone. I said that previous and subsequent generations also helped, which is true.

Can we not agree that the 16th Amendment (the income tax) was a bad thing? Can't we agree that The Federal Reserve Act is bad, that, thanks to the Federal Reserve, our economy is wrecked, and that we're on the verge of becoming slaves on the continent our forefathers conquered? Can we agree that Hart-Cellar was bad? I think we can. What do they have in common? They were all put in place by the Boomers' predecessors.

Did Boomers play a major part in wrecking society and culture? Yes, I never said anything to tne contrary. Is it true that they were SOLELY responsible? No. To say that they were is as ignorant as today's CRT is.

People propagating Boomer hate (what I call BGT, or Boomer Generation Theory) are no different than those who promulgated and propagate CRT. Both are simplistic, and both have an incomplete and inaccurate view of history. Both seek to blame one group for all of today's problems. CRT blames white people for everything, while BGT blames Boomers for everything.

We may have to pry their cold, dead hands off of them; but the levers of power will pass to Generation X and the Millennials.

I had the privilege of spending the last few weeks working with a group of young Millennial Men(Field Tech work). What a great bunch. They know the deck is stacked against them and that they are the lucky survivors of the great Boomer Abortion orgy.

They are very receptive to Nationalism. Enthusiastic, in fact.

As the Boomers, at last, die out. Whatever dark times await. I am confident the Millennials, with the help of GenX, will rise to the challenge.

Wouldn't our energy be better spent focusing on the problems and coming up with solutions?

No. Boomers are actively resisting the solutions to the problems. FFS, did you somehow miss the whole "kill the economy and inject the children to save the Boomers" activity of the last 18 months.

And did you miss that we are doing plenty of things that have nothing to do with Boomers? Although plenty of Gab Boomers certainly dismiss Arkhaven and Arktoons, because culture war is for children.

"While you're so happily anticipate our coming pillorying anticipate your own"

"Despair because you're going to die without fixing the world." A very boomerish point of view. The most annoying thing about Boomers, for this Xer, was the way they thought everything they did had to be Important. A music concert couldn't just be about good music; it had to be about changing the world. "Free Love" couldn't just be about getting your dick wet; it had to be about world peace. They chose their clothes and hairstyles and everything else to reflect their politics, which were always global in scope. They even politicized boobs with bra burning.

For Xers, all this was tedious and embarrassing, so we reacted by going the other way to cynicism and the "sitting poolside" attitude. We had watched the Boomers' attempts to "change the world" backfire or be used as cover for hedonism and corruption, and wanted none of it. When the Boomers tried to bring their activism into the 80s with things like Live Aid, we saw the corporatism and graft under the supposed good intentions and laughed at it as cringeworthy.

So I'm going to die, probably before things start getting better? Yeah, no shit. Never expected otherwise. We didn't get global thermonuclear war in the 80s, and Social Security still exists, so things haven't gone as badly as I might have predicted when I was 10. I'd rather have lived in a time when things were getting better than one when they're falling apart, but in another phrase common to my generation, it is what it is. I'm hoping to improve the corner of the world I live in, plant some trees for future generations, and try to help others around me to do the same. That's enough.

I agreed with your post to the extent that just like every other generation, the Boomers show up and deal with the cards they are dealt. But this is paragraph is the active choice of the Boomers. The vast majority, even many of the otherwise based, choose to rationalization, to deflect any criticism. They insist that "unity" is "Never, ever criticize my generation. And if you do, I will trot out anything from the fear of God, to respect of elders, to this sort of azzhat theory to make you stop. "

Nope. 40+ years of living in Boomerville. 40+ years of dealing with navel gazing, the epic selfishness, the idealistic thinking, and the fing Beatles. When last of the my personal WWII generation circle died, there settled on me a sense that I had been left alone with my young children and the Boomers. Yes, I understood their flaws, but I understood them too. You have no idea what it like to encounter Pepe and the dissent right. It was like that spirit had come back to life.

Hart-Cellar was a problem, but the Great Immigration Betrayal came in the late 1980s.

Throughout American history, from early Colonial times, immigration had been on a regular 60-year cycle. Thirty years of high immigration followed by thirty years of low immigration. The immigration valve opened for Wave 6 in the late 1950s. It SHOULD have closed in the late 1980s, but was instead welded open. By the Brat Boom decade group.

No, you are the one that doesn't get it, while Boomers may not have started the fire they've been pouring fuel on the fire and manning the bellows for decades. Consider JUST the "War on Terror": how many GenX and Millennial lives were destroyed or mangled in your wars for (((greatest ally)))? How much treasure was wasted in "the sandbox"? What benefit, at all, was accrued to/by the United States and/or its people? — This is one thing where unambiguously the Boomer generation was in complete, overwhelming control… and what do we have to show for it? Even now the Boomers in control of politics and business are pushing for ever more H1B and immigration, diluting the People of these United States. Even now, they are quadrupling down on public debt, while scoffing at the idea of drop-in-the-bucket Federal student-loan forgiveness. Even now, they embrace polices, rules, and laws which hinder the younger generations from establishing themselves.

Now ask: Why would someone defend those that have such obvious treasonous intent to the younger generations, even their own children?

The Boomers currently do not let us do anything about those problems, which is yet another sore point. They ascended to power relatively young and will be there until they die. Only Gen X sycophants (many of whom are clearly outright crazy) are allowed in right now in every institution. Until about 2030 or so there is nothing to be done except point it out.

For example, when those stupid lockdown orders came for a chest cold, I assumed it was all about the Boomers and for the Boomers. Suicides and domestic are up and they all affect the young people, not the Boomers. We have another decade of watching Boomers pretend that they can live forever and making sure to eat as much seed corn as they can along the way.

Boomer Carp

"Boomers", as they are most commonly referred to, are a generation of narcissists native to North America. Boomers (Boomerus carpio) have been in the United States for over 75 years. The Boomer is considered a nuisance or a pest. See Species Profile: Boomer (link is external) (Nuisance Generation Database) for more information.

This invasive generation is causing issues throughout the U.S and even globally. Boomer Carp are very annoying and prolific spreaders of bad advice, debt, and wickedness that oppress other generations and leave a trail of destruction in their wake.

The masseuse comes back in time to shut the machine off. She thought she did something wrong with the machine and asks him not to say anything because she could lose her job. He pretty much says he won't if she effs him. "You can keep your job if you eff me, person I've known for an hour."
The boombooms ate this shit up. They are the worst. The absolute worst.
inb4 "made by silent and greatest"
Yeah, but they're hollyweird kikes, that's exactly what you'd expect from them; it's the boomers who loved Bond so much when their parents would have at the very least probably protested its release in the 50s.

@44 More like Boomerism is a disease that originated in North America 75 years ago, that slowly consumed the rest of the white world.

Blogger Avalanche July 16, 2021 9:52 AM  

@15 "Why do most boomers still support all the evil that they have created even though it is now so obvious that this evil is destroying our societies?"

Some of it is hopeless, despairing no-idea-what-to-do. I shocked another late Boomer friend when I was mock-whining about 'yes, I support women not having the vote... but I keep also wanting to plead: well, except maybe women who own their own MFG biz and house? You know, ME?'

He sort-of supported me in that -- and I said: 'ABSOLUTELY NOT! I may hate the idea -- but when *I* was a young/younger woman -- I was JUST as destructive as the idiot libs/commies are today! *I* marched in (two) "civil rights for negros" marches (granted, I was 12 and it was my parents who marched: Silents who believed the crap). I voted Dem; I hated Nixon and Reagan, I was the typical 100% brainwashed idiot -- like most of my cohort around/through my ages...

But boys and men, at least, had to face the consequences of their support. I truly supported drafting women, and I happily joined the Navy, but when the MSM began to present drafting women as a possibility -- I realized they meant my younger sister! Oh HELL NO!

Personalizing the putative disruption of HER life (she was a viola student doing her Master's at Julliard) 'suddenly' made it clear to me what a hellish bad thing the draft was! I was 'negotiating' in my head that if a family member joined, then 'they' should have to leave other members out of any draft...

I'm embarrassed to write that it wasn't till I was 40 and married my dear late husband that I realized/was taught that there IS almost-always no "third option" -- it's draft or not draft. It's 'they must ALL go back' or we continue to destruction. (There really is no such thing as IKAGO). And it's a girl-thing to always WANT that third option: so girls and women need to not be allowed to vote or even, I now believe, run for or hold office! (Applies to gays -- women in male bodies -- too!) (Trans probably need euthanasia... that's not fixable! Why does everyone think eugenics is wrong?)

Now just to rub a little salt in the wound, did you know that medical expenses in the US are a little over 16% of GDP, and that is not counting the expense of the current covid flu stuff. About half the money we spend on medicine goes to keeping the terminally ill alive for another six months or so. Not sure, maybe it is a whole nine months.

Meanwhile most of the terminally ill are old people, with only a few of the Greatest Generation left. Thus we currently spend 8% plus of our gross national production keeping a bunch of terminal ill Boomer Generation geezers alive for a few more months. Even as this is being written, you geezer haters are deprived of over 8% of what would otherwise be your income for the purpose of keeping these folk around for a while, with some of them so drugged up that they don't even notice the passage of time.

There were a lot of us that were not "handed the world on a silver platter" and did know real poverty. Others had crappy Silent and Great gen parents.

THe Boomers weren't interested in any of that. The whole idea of them sacrificing for the good of their kids sounds crazy to them. Nor were they interested in any restraints on their behavior. So what if future generations suffered. Lets Party! And they still have that attitude. When they were young it was "Never trust anyone over 30, and make room for youth!". Now, its "we're going to hold on power till we die, young people, get screwed".

I am sort of on the business side of medical. The real secret they don't tell you is cost reimbursement.

Depending on the type of hospital, they either get just the government calculated cost of providing care, or the hospital and the providers just get a percentage of that amount. The 'cost reimbursement' is not the true cost of the case, even at 100%.

So those over the top medical bills you see as a working person paying with insurance and also out of your pocket are to make up for all the medicaid/state child insurance patients. Plus some profit to skim off for the hospital execs and board members. All on the back of working people.

At early breakfast I bumped into a family of four plus the two paternal grandparents traveling to lake of the woods for a canoe outing together. Two beautiful, curious, rambunctious boys ages four and seven, well dressed, trim and healthy looking. Firm rules at the table, must finish your protein before you can have apple juice, high level discussions, bad but clean jokes exchanged, and a scheduled exercise session in the hotel swimming pool.

The GenX grand parents supported and did not compete with the Millennial mom and dad. There were no cell phones or screens of any sort. The dad, clearly intelligent and a leader, kept charge but wielded a soft hand.

This is something that is, quite frankly baffling: you would think that their "Vietnam!" bullshit would serve as an effective deterrent to pushing wars in foreign lands, if not all wars… but like their greatest ally, they don't care about the cost if they're not the ones bleeding.

Also they were the biggest dupes of Zionists.
Something that occurred to me is how they justify their stances with the promise that "I will bless them that bless you and curse them that curse you", which they apply to Israel-the-modern-nation-state without asking fundamental questions like:
(1) Given this promise was to Abraham (Gen 12:3), was it 'inherited' by Isaac (the son-of-promise)?
(2) If it was, then did Jacob (Israel-the-person) inherit it as well?
(3) If Israel-the-person inherited it, did Israel-the-nation/-people inherit it?
(4) OR, is it possible that this promise is applicable foremost to Jesus:
(5) If the promises & punishments of the Mosiac law are applicable, then is it blessing Israel to "stand with Israel" in the midst of their punishments for turning away from God?

TL/DR — Their reasoning for "supporting Israel" is paper-thin, and shows an immaturity in thought and a shallow understanding (if it can be called that) of the Bible.

Oswald wrote:They think the Government has all the answers to our problems and can keep printing money until the day they die.
The frustrating thing is that they're not wholly wrong about government having answers: Government is an institution of God, as per Rom 13, "the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil." — But Boomers, in their tenure of our government, have refuses to act with Justice and turned it into an engine and force of corruption, punishing the innocent while enriching and lionizing the guilty.

Mr. Day, Martin Luther King would not like the direction you are taking this conversation. How do you feel now?

I was talking with a Boomer - conservative, 'Murica! sort who is about as good as Boomers come - about the sorry state of the country, and BLM came up. He shook his head and lamented how they'd nearly solved racism, how he really, genuinely thought they'd been this close to creating a colorblind society a la MLKs content of character claptrap. But the Al Sharptons and Jessie Jacksons of the world screwed it up.

No recognition it was a fool's errand all along, no realization all the "colorblind" stuff was one-way traffic meant to steal America from the White folks who built it. No recognition of how much damage Leftists and Globalists have done to America by appealing to the narcicistic yearnings of Boomers to be great world-changers sung about in ballads for all time.

Somebody asked "how do we avoid raising another generation like this?" My answer is pound humility into them. Boomers suffer (or rather, everyone else suffers) from a generational megalomania that made simply maintaining the most advanced civilization in human history somehow unworthy of them. They needed to be gods and ended up demons.

GenX and Millennials have abortions at nearly half the rate as Boomers, but Roe v Wade hasn't been repealed. Politics is downstream of culture, but BoomerCons got that all backwards.

I asked my Boomer uncle why he supported the "We Are the World" campaign despite his being a nominal Republican. I asked, "Why aren't we helping AMERICANS?" His answer: "We *gotta* help these starving people in Africa... And at least we're *trying* to do the right thing for them."

This was a guy who married three times and had two heart attacks from obesity; died at 62. Wife Three got it all. Nothing for his children.

Typical Boomer.

@65, 93: The whole notion of a 20-year generation is nonsense. A political generation is about 10 years, not twenty...and the break-point is around the middle of a decade. It's why I always refer to the Brat Boom and Baby Bust decade groups (1946-55 and 1956-65, respectively).

By the way, this holds true for ALL generations. 20 years is too low a sample rate. Go to 10 and you'll start to understand the dynamics much better.

Same here. It was clear enough Mandela was the political front-man for a marxist anti-White violent group, and giving them power would be a disaster. Even as a young, dumb 20 year old that was obvious.

It was probably obvious to Boomers too, except admitting that would mean passing up a chance to Change the World, Maaaan, so they strangled whatever was left of their common sense and followed the pied pipers. They really were the ultimate suckers for any appeal to their vanity. "A thousand human generations have lived beknighted lives, but your g-g-generation is finally here and can solve it all!"

I'm a younger Gen Xer here.

I'm not a fan of the Boomers generally, and I find Vox's pointed criticisms of them to be inciteful. But the "day of the pillow" talk still feels a bit cringe. Maybe those are just my sensibilities, as I also wasn't a big fan of "Heathers", which I watched on Vox's recommendation. I seriously wonder if Vox's Native American blood might make him less averse to excessive violence--but if I'm fair about it, maybe Anglos need a small amount of Eastern European/Native American type admixture to give us the will to fight.

I do worry that an anti-boomer focus could distract from the larger picture, which is that, as a society, we are prioritizing the old and stealing from the young to pay for it. That's largely boomers, but people 75+ shouldn't get a pass, and even older Gen Xers (think 55ish) got to be in their working prime and buy real estate around 2000, which was an amazing opportunity. I see opportunities getting to be fewer and fewer for those who are younger. Even I'm in much better shape than a recent grad trying to enter the labor force/housing market. It's easy to dismiss anti-boomer stuff as personal animosity, but the general trends of things getting worse for each generation and a society that doesn't care about younger people or the future is unmistakable to anyone with half a brain who is paying attention.

REPENT, BOOMER!
If I can, you can, if you're strong enough. Repentance requires recognising your sin, admitting it, repairing the damage, and firm determination to not recommit.
Do you disparage younger people, particularly Millennials?
Do you refuse to share your knowledge?
Do you spend your grandchildren's inheritance?
Do you praise the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Doors, the Who, Led Zeppelin and other groups of your youth as anything more than what they were, which was wildly successful, mediocre Pop Bands?
Do you try to defend a generation of unbelievably greedy baby-killing inebriates with the morals of a cuttlefish and all the self-control of a South-African Zulu in an unguarded mall against the people whose futures, careers, politics, nation culture and 1/3 of whose generation were literally destroyed by our generation, because "It's not our fault, man"?
Do you jump to respond to these posts because you can't "Imagine" he's not talking about you?
Do you dismiss the honest complaints of younger generations as jealousy/laziness?
Then REPENT BOOMER!

I saw this presentation a while back. It's Boomers talking about what it was like growing up, and i have some opinions:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rTuPEdlhQs

If we take this at face-value, then Boomer children were expected to be cardboard cut-outs of good children to their elders. There was no authentic connection to parents or past generations, and so a generation of untethered, radical individualists was formed, and when they became old enough to rebel, it was all over. What's more, i'm going to go out on a limb and say that their elders didn't have any rationale for why things had to be the way they were and why it mattered that they continue, and anyone who actually understood the values of Christendom, America, and European civilization certainly weren't about to be propagated through education and entertainment.

So maybe the solution is to provide the opposite to future generations. To have authenticity, emotional connection, the freedom to speak truth in your relationships. It makes sense that if you love your family and origins, you're want to continue them and to continue the institutions that sustained your forefathers.

As you touched on, the days where children could be guided by a strong common culture are long gone. Mass culture is just a tool for upholding power structures that hate us, and so as i see it, taking personal responsibility for the transmission of connections and culture and continuity and a sense of the collective good is the only way forward.

@Autarky Bear

At this point I've realized it's possible I'll never own anything like a house or land...

Lila:

Not at all.

There's cheap land everywhere, and with remote working and virtual offices on the rise, you can literally work from anywhere, even a rocky outcrop in the wilderness....there IS cheap land...you just have to look and you may need to buy with a group to get the best prices...

Or you could look abroad, if that's your cup of tea.
Plus, you don't really need much land to build a tiny house or park a caravan or RV.

Erect a prefab module, build your own earthbag home...or buy a part share in a house...all ways to enter the property market that don't cost that much.

Post your budget and I will tell you what's doable.

We've been fighting Muslim armies. After Desert Storm, no more "To Any Soldier" mail. In theater, when we receive mail from friends or relatives, we burn anything that has their address, or our names, on any packaging, lest it somehow is later found by opposing forces or anyone friendly to them, lest that information be distributed through networks, and the sender's address be attacked.

Similarly, we don't put stickers on our cars advertising "hey, if you want to kill a member of the American military, kill the person who drives this car."

"Says the barely-not-a-boomer who can not shut up. Projection, deflection, both?"

The thing is, if you don't read Vox's blog or subscribe to his stuff, you will never have to hear from him again. He sticks to his own media and audience. In contrast to that, it's a lot harder to get away from boomer bullshit. To not to have to hear boomer stuff, you would have to tune out CNN, FOX, or pretty much anything else on TV. They also have a shit ton of stuff on YouTube as well as on just about any other media you can think of.

I have to repent of the fact that even though I am not a boomer myself (born in January 1965) I am pretty close to them and did in fact, buy some of their bullshit when I was younger (particularly the free sex, and experimental spiritual ideas). It doesn't bother me that I will probably die and be forgotten.

VD, after your subsequent post, "Hush Now", how can you say that you don't blame the Boomers for everything? How can you say that when you advocate genocide and mass death for an entire group of people? Isn't genocide rooted in the simplistic blaming of one group of people for all the problems, e.g. Nazi Germany's genocide of the Jews? By doing so, aren't you IMPLICITLY blaming Boomers for all the problems of the world?

How retarded to think of a failed generation as "an ethnic, national, racial, or religious" group that can be genocided.

Genocide would involve killing off all of your children so you leave no descendants, something your generation has been perfectly happy to do on your own. Abortion, abandonment of marriage and children, devouring the seed corn and tying millstones to the survivors ...

All this scorn and hatred is for the sake of salvaging something for the next generations, including your own posterity. If you had any sense, you'd cheer on Vox so that a remnant of your generation and all your posterity might be saved.

The wages of the Boomer is death. Repent.

Don't take what Boomers say at face value, they're too self-centered to have any real perspective. The problem they had with the "cardboard cut-outs" isn't that those "good children" on the films weren't real, it was that nobody would make a new film about the precious snowflake Boomer if he was a good kid, they already had the old film. Boomers are, have always been, perpetual attention whores who can't ever just do what works because that doesn't get them attention.

Hoffman prattles on about "authenticity" and how it was lacking. It wasn't lacking, it was just selfish boomers who thought they were too special to follow "the rules." They post-hoc justify their idiotic rebellion against civilized culture by claiming it wasn't really like that.

i'm going to go out on a limb and say that their elders didn't have any rationale for why things had to be the way they were and why it mattered that they continue, and anyone who actually understood the values of Christendom, America, and European civilization certainly weren't about to be propagated through education and entertainment.

Bad limb to go out on. Children without the knowledge or experience to understand will never see the rational their elders have for things, so "because I said so" has to do for a while, until the kids are old enough to understand.

Boomers never got to be old enough to understand because they remained perpetual adolescents.

The sad truth is that (as a rule) the Boomers do not care, they cannot listen, and they will not save — not even their own children — not even in part.

Boomers also never realized that "because I said so" is just temporary— they never tried to get their children to the point where they could/would understand it. Boomer 'instruction' is "making a pronouncement and then throwing a fit when you aren't perfectly understood [via telepathy?], and any question or request for clarification is the deficiency of the student."

r selection is what corrupted the Boomers.

As they were showered with "excess resources" (aka fiat currency) their psychology slid down the r/K spectrum to "r selected"

5 main traits of the r selected reproduction strategy.

1. Competition averse.
So much so that they hamstrung their succeeding generations.

2. Promiscuity. ... need i?

3. Early sexualisation.

4. Low investment single parenting. .. again, do i need to?

5. Low ingroup loyalty.



Any of that sound familiar?
