oh and the whole ‘abdicated responsibility to act on climate change’ bit
— Anne Helen Petersen (@annehelen) November 27, 2019
Younger generations are correct to be outraged that Boomers enjoyed unprecedented benefits and advantages and when it came time to provide those same benefits to their own children and grandchildren, instead they pulled up the ladder, absolved themselves of all responsibility and told the younger gen to just “get a job.”
Some people say that anyone would’ve done this. Well, maybe. But the fact is that is what the Boomers did do, and they deserve much derision for it.
Hilariously, the same social safety net that the Boomers eviscerated is now not there for them when they need it.
