When you read about our crumbling infrastructure, don’t forget who created “deferred maintenance” as a concept, applied it nationwide for short-term gain, and then shrieks “How could this have happened?” when bridges collapse and gas lines rupture. When you read about the economy, don’t forget about the architects of the savings and loan crisis, the Enron scandal, the Dot-com bubble, and credit-default swaps. When you read about endless wars and anti-terrorism policies based on fear and racism, you know who was and is responsible, and it wasn’t millennials. The baby boomers are the only generation that demands praise for the accomplishments of their parents, and they’re garbage. It’s time for them to be isolated, ignored, censured, and defeated. They had 40 years of total control over the trajectory of our society, and they blew it. Stop listening to them. Stop voting for them. Stop taking their ossified bullshit seriously. Their time is done, and if they had any decency, they’d shamefacedly admit the horror they’re responsible for and withdraw from the public square. But they don’t, so it’s up to us to keep them from doing any more harm before the last piece of shit dies.—Anonymous
