Proof that we’re living in the Peak Baby Boomer era. Even though I know John Kerry himself is just slightly older than the generally accepted cutoff year between Boomers and Not-So-Silents.
On a visit to Nigeria today, Secretary of State John Kerry declared there are “far too many” who join terrorist groups like Boko Haram “because they have trouble finding meaning or opportunity in their daily lives.”
“Because they are deeply frustrated and alienated — and because they hope groups like Boko Haram will somehow give them a sense of identity, or purpose, or power,” Kerry said after meeting with local religious leaders to discuss community building and countering violent extremism in Sokoto, Nigeria.
See? They’re just trying to find themselves.
That generation is really bad about projecting itself onto everyone else, both older and younger.
