Bernie, you sound very bitter, angry, lacking compassion and sense of history, you sound much like the youth of the Red Guard in China, and you paint everyone with the same broad brush. People are individuals, regardless of age, generation, etc. Some are selfish, some are kind. Some are greedy, some are generous. I don’t know what you’ve experienced to make you so bitter, but you don’t look at others with eyes of kindness and understanding. Try to realize that people are not defined by the arbitrary categories they’ve been assigned to, whether that be Baby Boomer, Greatest Generation or Millennial. There is great selfishness and great self-sacrifice to be discovered within all of those broad groups. Search for those nuggets of humanity, and let your heart be softened.
