Maybe we should refrain from blaming generations that come after us (or before us) for the ills we encounter.
Because the truth of it is that every generation has large spots of shallowness and virtue.
Oh, whatever: The baby boomers were still a train-wreck.
Prosperity brings delusion as to how wealth is created in the first place. Prove me wrong.
Since Cato the Elder, a certain type of maturity has shown up when one starts blaming the new generation for shallowness and praising the previous one for its values.
