A new generational conflict: Will the 2020s be the “OK boomer” decade? | Salon.com

Screenshot_2020-01-01 A new generational conflict Will the 2020s be the OK boomer decade .pngMy generation was complaining about being screwed over by boomers before most of these young people were born. No one much cares about us — we are much smaller in number than the other generational cohorts — so it never really mattered. But we also can’t claim we did much to stop the bleeding: We didn’t have the power, and I’m sorry to say that most of us didn’t have the will.

Being outside the struggle is a gift, in the sense that it grants some measure of objectivity. I don’t officially have a dog in this fight, but I know who I’m rooting for. Younger generations have been done dirty, and frankly, they are being nicer about it than they had to be. Considering what their elders have dumped on them to deal with, a snarky internet meme is letting the boomers off pretty damn easy.
