- boomers handing their kids a world in poorer shape than they acquired.
When I was a small child my mom took me to Leonard Bros Dept Store in downtown Ft Worth. It was huge, later became Tandy/Radio Shack. At the entrance to the store there in the front foyer were two drinking fountains, each with a sign above it; one read White and the other read Black.
Schools were also segregated by race, and funded each much differently. Black men, women, and children were denigrated and discriminated against, legally, socially, economically, and culturally in ways that had been acceptable previously... until the boomers and some of their parents created a movement to change minds and wrote and passed legislation that changed most of that with the Civil Rights Act.
The same could be said for women who had back-alley coathanger abortions, seniors and children who died of disease and malnourishment, and gays who suffered as badly as anyone, most of which improved greatly with the Great Society Reforms.
Not to mention all the scientific accomplishments of the boomer gen, including the internet you use.
Now, I know it is a burden on their that boomers neglected to hand them a democratic and economic paradise where they wouldn't have to lift a finger to change anything themselves... oh, wait, they haven't really accomplished all that much anyway, have they?
I guess you could give them credit for Donald Trump.
