entitled?

My generations future was sold to corporate interests by Neo-liberal boomers and gen Xers for the left over crumbs of a zero sum pie and a little bit of political power. If being vocally progressive on the social, political and ecological problems facing 99% of the earths population makes a whole generation "entitled brats" then so be it. Beets being part of a morally corrupt, willfully ignorant one. It's like your boi Bob said "Your old road is rapidly aging. Please get out of the new one If you can't lend your hand. For the times they are a-changin". :)

... "progressive" is old "thieves' cant" for "socialist" from when people rejected the term socialist.

Progress is antithetical to freedom, because freedom means you don't know where you're going, freedom does not have a goal, it is the highest goal. Progress, on the other hand, is movement toward a goal, thus incompatible with freedom---the metaphor for progress is a trolley-car on a track, freedom is the man who is not on a leash or a track.

The selling of the future generations began last century, and it was broadly due to the introduction of socialist/progressive programs. To finance them, Governments would issue bonds, with the population as collateral. If you issue a 20 year bond, you're going to have to have a population, in 20 years, capable of paying that bond. And, of course, every year there is a new issue of 20+ year bonds, so it's not like the cycle is ever completed, it is perpetual debt slavery.

This history is all on the Internet, it was two decades ago when I had Internet access during highschool. It is simply not taught in social studies, instead you learn irrelevant things like lists of prime ministers. Now I bet it is even worse because you're learning how we need this tax-debt-slave-state in order to provide "social justice."

It's these social programs and this socialist form of Government that has allowed people to breed at the rate they have, without needing to worry about even being responsible---if they aren't, the Government will feed them. This is a very new situation.

Do you honestly think that the 60s Acid/Folk/Rock/Counter Culture was all about Big Government and Social Justice?

I'm a gen X, we were told we would be the first generation to do worst than our parents. We deal with crappy jobs because the boomers won't leave and everyone wants a Millennial to work for them. So quite your bitching, at least society thinks you guys will be fine.

This sounds like a spoilt brat rant. Sorry Gen X is no picnic. With no jobs, the economy falling apart, globalization with Canada not protecting jobs for its citizens that developed a profession here. We had the worst run in history. Selfish baby boomers working till 70 when they have already cashed in.

This was the most far left wing liberal indoctrinated rant from a dumbed down millennial that was subjected to our godless left wing degenerate education system that left wing delusional nutbags like yourself advocated for. You try to gaslight conservatives for this? Not going to happen. Own your shit. This is it.
