The Coming Boomercide

The warning when you are young is to avoid falling in with a bad crowd. This almost always means staying away from the older crowd as they will talk you into doing things that you are not prepared to handle, like drugs or crime. The peculiarity of my upbringing meant that I spent my youth around an older crowd, that was all bad, but I avoided the worst of it. Now that I am on the down-slope of life, speeding down toward the inevitable, I find myself hanging around on-line with a younger crowd and they are all bad.

I’ve never cared for generational politics so maybe that’s why I have no trouble with the younger generation. In my youth, I was forced to sit through endless lectures by Baby Boomer teachers about how Generation X was a bunch of slackers. By the time I reached high school, I could, from memory, draw maps of the Ho Chi Min Trail and recite the playlist at Woodstock, despite having no interest in either. I’ve always thought that my generation’s disinterest was due to having to sit through so many Boomer sermons.

If you are a Boomer reading this, you are no doubt outraged, scandalized and offended at my comments. Just to be clear, I’m not talking about you. You are an exception. In fact, you are unique, like a snowflake, a special creation that stands in stark contrast to the conformity of your coevals. You’re special! That’s always been the amusing part about Boomer culture. They love talking about themselves, but hate it when others talk about them. Everyone is conservative about what think they know best, as Derb would say.

As I said, I’ve never been into generational politics. When I was a teen in the 80’s, having to hear lectures about Gen X being deficient, always left me wondering what they called the kids who came along in the late 70’s? They were technically Boomers, but they were nothing like the people who came of age in the 60’s. Now I’m told that kids who came of age in the 90’s are calling themselves Gen X, which is probably fine to a point. I suspect they are rejecting Gen-Y because it sounds feminine, as in [lacking] Y-chromosome.

Anyway, hanging around the bad kids on-line, I’ve noted their extreme hostility to Baby Boomers and Boomer politics. It’s not the normal youthful rejection of their parent’s stuff as their parents are not Boomers. In the case of the 20-somethings, their parents are my generation. Their grandparents are the Boomers. This means the so-called Gen-Z and Millennials literally want to push granny off a cliff. I’ve read screeds by youngsters to that effect. They really hate the Boomers and not in an abstract way.

The coming Boomercide, if it happens, is going to be triggered by some portly old guys in comfort waist slacks, showing up at an alt-right rally wearing tricorne hats, preaching “heritage not hate.” It is the Boomer impulse to accept the morality of the Left while pretending to reject the consequence of it, that enrages the youth. Whatever you want to say about the alt-right kids, they have this one thing right. Boomer politics is all about the so-called conservatives swearing that the liberals are the real racists, as if it matters.

A big part of this is the Boomer willingness to trust the media. I know. I know. You don’t trust the media. You know they are just a bunch of socialist liberal pinko Democrats. But, that’s just a way of trusting the media. There’s a big difference, a categorical difference, between thinking the media is honestly “biased toward one side” and thinking the media is just a deeply cynical public relations arm for the administrative state. Almost all Boomers will accept the former, while few accept the latter.

This is part of the great generational divide between the young hate thinkers and the Baby Boomers. The young have no trust in public institutions. This is not a thing particular to the alt-right. Bernie Bros are always moaning about the system. The stupid little girl jammed up on espionage charges acted on the basis that the system is illegitimate and lacks authority over her. That’s why she did not think twice about doing what she did. In her mind, the government and its agents are the enemy, with whom she is at war.

This trust in public institutions among Boomers is natural. Most of them grew up in a high trust culture. When they watched TV in the 50’s, the people making the shows were in love with America and promoted 1950’s values. Even into the 60’s, the mass media was supportive of America. When the culture began to collapse, the media seemed to be on the side of those good hearted Progressives trying to make things better for blacks, Jews, women and the disposed around the world. The media was all about good intentions.

Later generations came of age assuming that what was on television was a deliberate lie intended to have them buy stuff. Today’s youth have come of age in a time when the media is clearly the church choir for the managerial elite. Those who take the blue pill, get jobs in the media, singing whatever is in their hymnals. Those who take the red pill, view the media the same way the IRA looked at the Irish, who worked for the British security forces. As a result, they see the Boomers as gullible idiots.

Another aspect of the generation animosity is the Boomer enthusiasm for punching Right, in order to cozy up to the Left. Bill Mitchell is probably the most obvious example. He has turned himself into a cartoon in order to avoid being lumped in with the people the Progs have labeled “far right.” The other day a person on Gab pulled out this old take down of Bill Whittle by Steve Sailer, as an example of Boomer perfidy. In fairness to Whittle, he appears to have taken the red pill, but we’ll see if it holds when the Progs attack him.

All of this could simply be a bit of cosmic justice. The generally accepted theory is that Western culture collapsed in the 1960’s when the English speaking world allowed their kids to pull down the institutions that made all of it possible. That is certainly true. In fact, the Boomers have been like a wave of locusts, sweeping through each aspect of the culture as they aged, leaving nothing but waste behind them. In the 60’s and 70’s they destroyed social norms. The 80’s they destroyed education. The 90’s is was politics.

As the Boomers head into their golden years, they are prepared to bankrupt Western society by becoming a great financial burden, but the youth have other ideas. It would be amusing if the Boomers are eventually vanquished by a youth movement that is, at its heart, an embrace of everything the Boomers rejected. I cannot find an example of restoration genocide, but there is a first time for everything. The phrase “you have to go back” will become the slogan of this thing for a number of reasons.

Not being a boomer or a youth, I have no dog in this fight. I know, I know. “First they came for the Boomers and I did nothing because I am not a Boomer.” That’s a chance I’m willing to take. My guess is Gen-X will be just as easy for the kids to ignore as we were for the Boomers. There’s a lot of Boomers to push off a cliff, so my bet is they wear themselves out before they get to me anyway. At that point, I may have died from excessive amusement, so bring on the Boomercide!

A generation that is 90% white will be absolutely hated in the coming decades as whites slide into hated-plurality rather than hated-majority. Any of my fellow boomers who didn’t do their duty and produce several children and subsequent grandchildren has nobody to blame but themselves. The only social security policy that can be relied upon in times of societal struggle are flesh and blood with strong familial bonds.

Bill Mitchell isn’t bad and his podcasts are getting better and better. I don’t see Mitchell as someone who is trying to cozy up to the left. I just see him as somebody who is relentlessly positive, especially about Trump. If he is against the alt right, judging from what I’ve seen of him I’d say he is against them because he perceives them to be negative. I don’t agree that the alt-right is negative, I just don’t think Bill Mitchell cares about currying favour with the left. Bill Mitchell is a little bit of a lightweight, but I am… Read more »

The retirement of the boomer generation will be the trigger that finally reveals the insanity of politicians buying votes with money borrowed from the future in order to fund bribes in the present. There is literally no way to keep the gravy train running when the cash outflow is predicated on one worker funding one retiree. This collapse is needed desperately, because voting behavior cannot change until the proverbial 2×4 hits these younguns upside the head. It also explains why they have accumulated so much debt. Their strategy is to scam the scammers. And they ain’t paying back shit.

Not even remotely true. Cities and states across America are about to go bankrupt because they’ve promised public employees ever-greater pension payouts over the last few decades and don’t have the money to pay for them. And that’s before you even consider the impossibility of paying for the Boomer’s healthcare bills.

The boomers have spent decades voting themselves more and more FREE STUFF, and are about to discover that the cupboard is bare.

You can’t vote yourself real assets when they don’t exist. People who generate real wealth are working on-the-books as little as possible while doing clandestine jobs at double time. It is possible to live as a single man for a few thousand bucks a year (without public assistance and the privacy loss that brings) if you are careful and lack expensive habits.

They are going to go bankrupt and leave the younger people (not retired yet), the taxpayers, and the investors in those communities holding the bag. The retirees with their benefits in place are always the last to get a haircut. Examine the order of seniority in any insurance company workouts. Existing annuitants are always taken care of, to the detriment of all other interested parties. It’s the structure of things.

It’s a Ponzi scheme, not an investment program. SSI and SSD have no limits based on pay-in. I predict that Congress will transfer and print funds to keep all .gov “entitlements” coming even as the Dollar is devaluing against an official narrative of low-1-digit inflation after fraud adjustments (even while M1 fiat Dollar is doubling every 7 years). Ron Paul guarantees that everyone will “git they check”, but not the actual buying power of that check.

Power corrupts. Congress has the power of the purse. Congress is corrupt.

I have also seen some people categorize us as early Gen-X. I agree that we don’t fall into either category or any other category so easily. If there was anything defining about our generation, I believe it was the ascent of Ronald Reagan and Reaganism in the 1980s. But that has kind of faded at this point.

Don’t confuse marketing labels/Madison Avenue shorthand for generational typing. Boomers are the r-Selected offspring of WWII rabbits, “You’ll never want for anything like I did!”

GenX are the last Americans raised with first-hand knowledge of the original culture, pure WASP, without apology. They pulled the rug out from under us in college.

So remember, if you don’t think like a Boomer, you aren’t. It’s a market segment, shorthand for selling people stuff. Nothing more.

I’m a couple years older than you, Thomas, and have never considered myself a boomer. To me, boomers were those who benefited from the post-war optimism — by the time I was a child, that optimism had turned to dust. Of course, I was raised at ground zero, in California. Things in CA were a bit more “progressed” than in the rest of the country, which perhaps explains why other people my age identify as boomers. I never saw the government as legitimate. Still don’t.

Born 1960, came of age late ’70s/early ’80s. The real Baby Boomers were the ’60s hippies, IMO. We got pastel tuxes and long hair at the prom, watched the people a few years ahead of us bomb out on coke and disco-y orgies in their 20s. High school teachers partying with their students because, why not? Put up with MASH and all those Norman Lear spin offs that just tried to destroy everything.

“The ’60s were about tearing everything down, in order to get laid. The late ’70s was about getting laid in the ruins of it all.”

Truer words were never spoken, LOL.

The older boomers were serious and agitating and trying to change the world; we just wanted to enjoy life. (And some of us were not into drugs at all.)

Member

Pushing 60. Spent the late sixties in Africa, and came back to a country I didn’t recognize. Have always looked at my generation as some kind of alien form of life possessing human form, like in those horror movies in the late fifties. A big reason why I didn’t marry an American. Boomer only by age.

Member

I entered the army in January 1969 and returned from SE Asia late 1970. I too experienced that disconnect of returning to a totally different country than the one I had left. I have trouble accepting “the Boomers” as a concept, because I see the Early Boomer (me) and the Late Boomer as two different generations and cultures.

Member

I think that’s right, but I’ve noticed that people my age didn’t start thinking more like me until they got older. They seemed to be more taken in with the predominant modes of thought when they were younger. All the same, it may be by attrition. A ton of them are dead from alcohol and drugs.

I agree about the early vs late boomers. I heard someone say that a good dividing line on that one was something like: If you went through puberty before Sgt. Pepper came out you were an early boomer, if you went thru afterwards you were a late boomer.

I was born in 1948. Drafted into Army 1968. Poor background. The 60’s foolishness also passed me by. I have worked since I was 15. Married late to younger woman. Two kids in their mid 20’s. Yes, it is interesting. Son still has 1 year of college left. Both kids worked during college. Dad/Grand Dad insisted. No college debt allowed for either. They always paid for part of their tuition. The media trust, for me, ended with Walter Cronkite. If Walter could sit there and lie to the country, no one could be trusted.

Same here, although age (my eldest are late 20s) and experience has tempered my children’s disdain (we all seem to go through a phase in our 20s).

There is truth to this. But the problems in education in particular as well as the society in general started prior to the boomers. The education system became left-wing and dumbed down in the 70’s, before the boomers had any influence in it. The rot of Keynesian economic theory (a criminal sophistry if there ever was one) was created even before the WWII’s came of age. Once of age, the WWII’s bought into Keynesian criminality with scarcely any fore thought at all. The Boomers created lots of problems.

NAXALT is a terrible argument and should go without caveat in these circles. The young, in my estimation, don’t exist as we knew them.

So it’s no longer worth kvetching about “the youth,” in the same way that these young whites can complain about “the boomers.” The boomers are 90%+ white Americans with several generations history and tradition, just like their parents. “The youth,” in the America of today are nearing a Mestizo plurality and… Read more »

The youth of each generation and sub-generation have always had big obstacles and hardships. The obstacles just keep evolving. A minority of each youthful group figure out how to take care of themselves. The rest find their way, typically depending on either the kindness of strangers or their family’s past generations, or scheming to carve out their piece of the pie off of the “system”, such as it is at any given time. It has always been so.

We worked on cars because they were old and weren’t going to fix themselves, and we couldn’t afford to pay others to do the work. Cars were also the way to get out in the world, as there was no interactivity whatsoever in the media or entertainment, unlike today. One drove out into the big wide world to find out what was going on and what to do next. Now one does that on the web.

Try working on cars today. Intentially over complicated with proprietary tools and no room to work. You need to have $10000 tools to work on and diagnose cars now, not just a crescent wrench and elbow grease. Even older gear heads are getting gamed out by some “advances.”.

The boomers are rich, they had opportunities which they exploited to acquire material wealth.

The Boomers got wealthy through exploiting opportunities, but the younger generations today…well, those opportunities just mysteriously vanished somehow!

In addition to the Boomers’ ‘scorched earth’ policy towards the US and their belief in some sort of IRL Star Trek-like “Federation of Planets” kumbayah globalism, they completely failed to raise their kids. This is best explained by Dr. Leonard Sax in “The Collapse of Parenting.” They also divorced in record numbers. Subsequent generations hate the Boomers because they completely failed in their duties towards us. I say this as an early Millennial with good Boomer parents.

Instead of looking at people near you who are likely to be successful like you, why don’t you look at statistics? (one of my many problems with boomers is your love of ignorance; you obviously have internet access, do some research).

Average income has been falling since the 70s. Purchasing power of the average wage has been falling since the 70s. The middle class is shrinking, with much of the loss to the lower class.

I’m inclined to agree with much of your comment. The rot that really set in by the mid sixties was not brought by boomers, the oldest of whom would have been barely out of high school.

What percentage of Boomers messed around with computers? A very tiny minority. The rest were out partying and getting high. I watched it.

There were maybe 3 computers existing at the time, they were all as big as your living room, and they were owned by the Pentagon.

And the fanciest operation they could perform was figure square roots to about 9 places accuracy.

So what was there to do except:

a) surf
b) drink beer
c) chase women
d) all of the above

re: “What percentage of Boomers messed around with computers?” Dutch You travelled in a different country from me.

I’m not quite sure what to make of this analysis. I just don’t see a large-scale pushback from the younger generation. Collectively, the Millennials are just too stupid to do anything other than obey. The Millennial generation voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008 and 2012, and for Clinton in 2016. Both Obama and Clinton advocated big government programs which ultimately rely on wealth transfer from the young and productive to the old and unproductive.

A better split of the generations is done by Strauss-Howe, with Boomers being 46-64, Gen X 65-80, etc. See Wikipedia for their breakdowns. Of course, all people do not “fit” into a certain generational group, there are overlaps due to family structure or even parts of the country or country of origin. It works in a broad origin sense.

Note: there is a huge difference between GenXers raised by boomers and those raised by Silents/Greatests.

You see it was around the 1960s that improvements in pre-natal care made it possible for women to give birth late into their 30s. So for example, my mother was born in 1936 and I was born in 1970. My dad was born in 1934. But my “peers” who were conceived at Woodstock were like aliens to me.

The youngest boomers are early-50s right now. Some of them could, in an ideal world, live another forty years or more.

But, absent a miracle, America won’t exist in twenty years. It simply cannot continue to exist as a nation when it’s been reduced to a mass of competing identity groups all trying to gain power over the others.

And none of those groups are likely to feel much sympathy for the people who created that situation.

“… always left me wondering what they called the kids who came along in the late 70’s? They were technically Boomers, but they were nothing like the people who came of age in the 60’s.”

Factually incorrect. The Boomer gen has classically be defined as that group between 1946 – 1964. A 1964 Boomer coming of age in the 70’s would start at 6 and end around 18. But by the end the ’70s were no longer the ’70s. Disco had died, the VN war was nearing its final peak before capitulation, and Reagan was on the horizon.

All stereotypes are true, so there’s certainly something to be said for generational theory.

[…] All of this could simply be a bit of cosmic justice. The generally accepted theory is that Western culture collapsed in the 1960’s when the English speaking world allowed their kids to pull down the institutions that made all of it possible. That is certainly true. In fact, the Boomers have been like a wave of locusts, sweeping through each aspect of the culture as they aged, leaving nothing but waste behind them. In the 60’s and 70’s they destroyed social norms. The 80’s they destroyed education. The 90’s is was politics. […]
