Not a Boomer

but I really like watching old tv shows and movies. No smart phones! And people seemed nicer to each other.

I like old movies, music, fashion, etc. and I also like new technology. You can find balance in everything.

Sure, but holy shit can (& often does) the internet suck you in.

No not really. That's a work of fiction.

I was there. The 80's weren't so nice. Racism and bullying were terribly normal. I find Millennials nicer than my generation, Gen-X. Millennials are trying improve things. I never understood the criticism.
I believe they will find their place in history because of it as opposed to Gen-X. My Generation will be mostly forgotten.

Personally, I find people nicer outside of this part of BC. People here smug, surly and aloof. Go check another city out. You will be surprised.

I was also there in the 80s, but I was actually talking about BEFORE the 80s - the 70s and earlier.
And so sorry to hear you think so lowly of our generation.

"And people seemed nicer to each other." Uh what?!
How about "And upper/middle class straight white men were nicer to other upper/middle class straight white men"?
The rest of us consider steps towards recognition of our personhood to be of some value, so may not be so keen to go back.

Interesting.
I didn't write anything saying I think lowly of the younger generations. You just assumed it was directed at a generation. I date Millenials, so no probs with them as a generation.
I was talking about the TIME (which includes ALL living generations) but I can understand why you'd be triggered to assume it was shade against younger gens.
Not let's see if s/he can figure out what's different about this Time that makes people be less nice/social.

OK, a lot of white people on the shows. The era was pretty sweet if you were white. Meanwhile, that period was pretty hard on people of colour and members of the LGBTQ community. They fought pretty hard so that they can have it better today, and they still have a way to go.
