OK, we have your attention. Seriously, some will blame Boomers for all the woes in today's world. How much of today's economic environment or the moral decay decried by many can be attributed specifically to Boomers is a subject of wide discussion. There were positives and negatives.
Our generation took to the streets in protest and changed the direction of the Vietnam War and civil rights. We were at the forefront of women's lib and oversaw the growth of the internet. Our music embraced earlier styles then evolved to be unlike anything before, and shaped that to come. We also brought drug use mainstream. Today, we hold much of the wealth that drives the economy.
We changed the world with our youthful exuberance, but then we got involved in real life. Some of the freedoms we expect have turned against us -- and there comes a point when the societal good must prevail. As our nests become empty, we can regain that exuberance to bring on a new revolution and return to a reasonable society.
Regardless of what you believe, DO SOMETHING!
