The reason the boomers despise gen x and y is because their mom's and dad's were kids during the Great Depression. They were raised to appreciate what they had because their parent's, as kids, had to work hard to support their siblings and whole families. Boomers had it pretty easy but still had that sense of pride and hard work instilled in them. Then they had kids, gen x, and spoiled them rotten. Now gen x is spoiling gen y even more rotten.

I think it's hilarious humans despise and complain about their own creations. It's ironic.

It's time we hit a wall again and are forced to be more humble. Let's not complain that we got the short end of the stick and start being better people. Life is cyclical. All good things must end. Hardships develop character.

No amount of humbleness and hard work can offset the global rape of this planet committed by the previous generation.

It's over Johnny, the takers took. All that is left, is to fight for the scraps.

This is going to sound overtly simple, but this is exactly what those in the positions of wealth and power want us to do . . . bicker and blame each other instead of taking a long look at the system that is in place that allowed all of this to happen, and sucked us all in like the lemmings that we are.

The longer we fight each other, the longer those in the ivory towers get to continue solidifying their positions such that the generations beyond those being discussed are in the same damn boat we're all in.

Collectively screwed in a leaky canoe, with no bailing pail and lack of a functioning paddle.
