Dr. Baby Boomers of the United States of America,|
You are the most self-indulgent, wasteful, and materialistic people on the face of this planet. You have stolen from Generation X and Y to fund your lavish lifestyle. The generation before yours fought for your freedoms so that you could have all the opportunities you could have ever dreamed of. You were showered with praise and gifts in the 1950's. You protested the draft in the 1960's. You then hypocritically turned your back on the poor and working class citizens of the world after the potential danger of draft was over, when you openly endorsed communist dictatorship, forgetting the millions who died under Che Guevara and the Viet Cong. You overspent. More money was spent on nice cars, McMansions, and elegant food all so you could keep up with the Joneses.
You brought your materialism onto my generation by preaching the importance of financial stability, which is hypocritical of the way you fucking bought everything on credit. You did not save for retirement. You Ponzi-schemed your own children to pay for said retirement. For further proof of your hypocrisy you play the role of moral guardian on my generation when it comes to pot but considering half the shit you did in the 1960's you shouldn't fucking be talking.
Today you continue to fight for more entitlements. More money is being spent on wars. You take health care for granted. Your children have to work harder than ever to pay back 14.2 TRILLION dollars of YOUR stupid debt. You brainwashed my generation into thinking they were losers if they didn't go to college and become white-collar professional elitists. Even today you are in Washington D.C. You are in Wall Street. Your selfishness even appears in the Ponzi-scheme that is academia- you convince students to go to grad school to run YOUR stupid projects when you KNOW that there is almost no hope in getting tenure these days.
You are laughable. You think you care about the children but all you care about is brainwashing and guilting your own children into following a narrow lifestyle that includes "high school-->college-->job-->family-->retirement." Now my generation, who has always feared your condescending preaching, has become a bunch of mindless sheep, prolonging maturity to manifest in the phenomenon called the "quarter life crisis" because we can't fucking think for ourselves unless some institution tells us how to live our lives. You point fingers when OTHER people don't donate to charity but you don't lift a damn finger to help others unless you know it makes yourself look good. You'll fight for the environment (and by fight, I mean somebody else does the dirty work while you get all the credit) but you won't responsibly take care of yourself.
I'm sick of you people. I will do everything in my lifetime to never become the wasteful, shallow, and materialistic pricks that you are.
