The Boomer Conservative Question

The younger generation is unhappy with the status quo of liberal democracy and they are looking for a change. We have seen evidence of this with the rise of the Antifa and the Alt Right. Many of our young now support Communism or Fascism. They see no hope in the current system.

On the Right, Boomer conservatives still think it is 1980. We just need to cut those taxes and build the military and everything will be OK. But it is no longer 1980. Many of the people from that era are now dead. And much of the native population has been replaced.


  1. I was born in 1960. The hippie generation were teens in the 60s. There needs to be another generation group to cover around 1957 to 1964. Putting people born 15 years apart in the same generation group makes no sense. How about a seperate generation for those that grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons?

  2. Howe and Strauss' compelling analysis in "The Fourth Turning" grew out of "Generations," but after you read far into it awhile it bogs down in endless murkiness and dubious, convoluted speculations that overlap each other and leave you thinking the authors wound up just trying to fill a contractual page count requirement.
