The Sins of the Father

Will not be repeated by their children:

The times are changing, and not necessarily for the better when it comes to giving back to society, according to 40 years of research on 9 million young adults. Since the baby boomer generation, there has been a significant decline among young Americans in political participation, concern for others and interest in saving the environment, according to a new study published by the American Psychological Association.

I think that this is a good thing, since it shows that the current generation has seen through the crock of lies perpetuated by the Boomers.  Millennials aren’t falling for the nonsense on stilts that is environmentalism or political idealism.  They won’t even fall for the lie that voluntarism makes you a good person.  Quite simply, it is now obvious to everyone but the Boomers that the flower child idealism of the 60s is a steaming pile bovine fecal matter, and is no more deserving of serious consideration than a pro-unicorn advocacy group.
