Questions for Baby Boomers

The world grapples with a so called impending economic armageddon. So who is supposed to pick up the pieces? The youth. There’s a generation of politicians and writers saying that the young are too spoiled and expect too much. Yet slowly it’s dawning on many that the older generation’s lifestyle also needs questioning.

The older generation had completely free education, a completely free health service, houses that were affordable and very generous pensions. The same generation doesn’t want newer housing to reduce prices, thinks that the young are lazy and that they are essentially self made. I think this attitude needs to be questioned. They had a good ride and when there’s trouble they’re asking their children to pick up the pieces.

History might look at that generation as being the most irresponsible.
