What do you think of the Esquire article about a "war on youth"?
This article. I am conflicted – the stats are frightening, and the content resonates with the way I’ve been beginning to feel about the situation. So very glad I went to college to become the most qualified person at Staples. On the other hand, I can’t condemn the Boomers for their belief in endless growth, as I probably would have believed the same, had I been born earlier. Nor can I deny a right to them to age comfortably – though I think there are ways to address this issue and still reform the system to help young people more. What do you guys think about the pattern the article identifies? Did the Boomers inadvertently screw over their kids? Are Boomerang-ers entitled and unwilling to bear hardship? Do you think revolution is brewing? Other thoughts?
Secondary question for my fellow Boomerang-ers: if you find yourself in agreement with the article, do you/will you try to change things by voting? That’s our problem, y’know – few of us vote; most of them do.
