They’re starting to age out of power. No, it won’t happen overnight, but it is starting.
It also means it’s the start of what I think is going to be a rough and profound transition. Not only for what you can read at that link, but also for the generation of people behind me. As the real bosses of society transition from the Boomer-aged parents of today’s Millennials to the Generation X older cousins of today’s Millennials, I think that’s going to force them to do a whole lot of growing up. I’m generally high on Millennials, and I wish we’d stop using them as society’s punching bags. Really, all this hate is starting to get shrill; using the same reasoning that is used to heap flak on Millennials, every other generation of people that has living representatives today is just as bad. I don’t think there isn’t anything wrong with Millennials that won’t be solved by getting them out from under their Boomer-aged helicopter parents. They just need to hear a lot of “Fuck your feelings” from people like me.
