It is absolutely true that many Baby Boomers have turned their backs on the welfare of their descendants. Unlike the biblical precept of saving for the future and leaving an inheritance to one’s posterity, many Baby Boomers are living only for this life and leaving their posterity nothing or worse yet, debt. While this is not true of every Baby Boomer, it is true of so many of them that it is fair to say that at least a huge percentage, if not majority of Boomers, are traitors to their nation and their own kin.
I don’t believe that Generation X or Millennials are any better. The rule of thumb since the mid-1800s has been that each successive generation gets progressively more degenerate. Ergo, I would expect my peers and the younger generations to get dumber and more detached from reality. They’ve got a lot pushing them in that direction, from public indoctrination to mass junk media to poor nutrition to the end of objective truth to mass Third World migration. In those regards, our elders may have a tougher constitution than us young bucks.
My comment in a previous post criticizing some descendants of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson was directed at them specifically and those like them who have trampled upon the righteous moral standards of their forefathers. Baby Boomers who have resisted the hippie, Marxist revolution of the 1960s through the present day are to be commended and appreciated. They may not have been 100% effective in their tactics or strategy, but they put their hearts into it and ought to be thanked. The spineless jellyfish I criticized earlier are not in the same category as those worthies who have spent years in the trenches working to save a once-great country.
According to at least one source, Boomers were born between 1946 and 1964, making Lee’s 54-year old ungrateful descendant a very late Boomer. Even if he wasn’t technically a Boomer but a very old X’er, the fact that he would have been 27 by the time Nirvana released Smells Like Teen Spirit would put him in a different galaxy than people of the same age cohort as me, Richard Spencer, James Edwards, and Mike Enoch.
As a product of the 1980s and 1990s, I vaguely remember a country in which normalcy reigned, at least during the holidays and in blockbuster motion pictures. There were few to zero transsexuals, illegal aliens, or tattooed feminists paraded up and down Madison Avenue or Main Street prior to my youth. The conservatives of the 1950s-1980s are to be thanked for holding back the flood of degeneracy that began to overflow all of America in the 1990s.
Boomers aren’t the worst generation, but neither was the World War II generation the greatest generation. If it wasn’t for their failings, the Boomers never could have gotten off to such a bad start as to think that the worst thing in the world (for an Anglo or German) was to be proud of one’s ethnic heritage. If it wasn’t for their failings, the horrible laws of the 1960s wouldn’t have been passed. In all of these things, the Boomers played little to no part. They were barely born or at worst were young teenagers when the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Hart-Celler Act took effect. We likely haven’t seen the real “greatest generation” of Americans yet. Our Founders and other generations of patriots did amazing things. God willing, our greatest generation and golden age of American history are still to come.
Thanks to Vanishing American for the helpful discussion of these issues.
