  • We'll stop hating the older generation if they stop fucking over the current/new/modern generations. I hope to god my grandchildren won't hate me. Because I strive to let them live in a better world than I grew up in. I was born in 97. So take that as you will.

  • Boomers being the ultimate hypocrites is the greatest tragicomedy of the modern age. I honestly believe that if their parents were still around, they and us Millennials/Gen Zers would put aside our differences and rain hell on their asses. Boomers have numbers but we have the combined might of parental disapproval and the resentment of inheriting their mess of a country.

  • Well my perspective is of someone who doesn't live in any of the more developed countries (I'm Brazilian) I feel like the baby boomers living in countries like america and european countries act much like a rebelus teen or an absolute moron as compared to the elders I've encountered in my own country who resemble much more the greatest generation, although we do have some of those idiotic boomers.

  • when my father manages to fix something using knowledge he got from his dad and from grade/highschools that actually taught life skills, he proudly proclaims "Boomers Know Things" Boomers know things. no. boomers were taught things. boomers ignored their kids and stuck them infront of the tv/ps1/n64, then complained that their kids didn't just magically grow up to know everything they knew. i told him that we didn't get those lifestyle and life knowledge classes when i went to highschool "well, we got them when i went to highschool" oh, btw, i went to the exact same highschool he went to, it even has some of the same staff as when he went there. they got rid of those useless "life skill" classes to make room for really important things, like art history. and boy howdy, if that doesn't just sound like the most boomer thing you could do. "get rid of those home economics classes, the kids need to learn something really important... things like.... this african fat titty statue, and this bowl. they need to know where and when they were made. not something stupid like how to do taxes, or fix things around the house.

  • I hope, when I'm older, I don't simply hate the younger generation. I want to make the effort to see the world they see it to come to an understanding of how they're feeling. If we all agree something is wrong, they we can work together to fix it. Boomers just seem to be so locked in their ways that they don't want to admit how their affect on the world has led to the anxiety-inducing uncertainty that comes from an unstable and unsustainable market.

  • I think what it comes down to is that adults forget what they were like as a young person. And tech exploded so when they were kids, it was 7 channels of TV while now its unlimited content on the internet. Making a living was much easier. But whats important is that Boomers rejected the Vietnam war. Which was the right choice. It was a pointless war and if they had blindly accepted it who knows what would have happened. However, they forgot those days of rebellion and now they fell back into traditional ways but stuck in the past

  • Teens always need something to rebel against. And the rebellion has taken many forms from dating (unsupervised) to protesting war, fighting for civil rights, fighting for women’s rights , and, fighting for LGBTQ rights. The rebellion isn’t always political it can be in music too, in America Tin Pan Alley music was super popular then we got jazz (or for racist white people swing) then do wop gained some more popularity (at this time the blues became more popular with artist like Robert Johnson or Betty smith) (among white folk artist like buddy holly bob dylan were the rebellion music) and then we got rock and then psychedelia then disco back to more hard rock then punk and now electric music. What I’m saying is that we rebel against anything that puts us down and hate “the man”

  • I feel there is some intersectionality things that weren't talked about here. The prosperity of post world war 2 was largely only available to white people. Is the experience of an African American baby boomer who were born into a world of Jim Crow at all similar to the experiences of white baby boomer? Also generations are not a hive mind. Most Baby Boomers did not partake in the counter culture movement. Those were the liberal baby boomers. Conservative Baby Boomers did not behave the same. Conservative Baby boomers helped elect Ronald Reagan and all those who came after and their conservative government policies that have been wrecking the country. Meanwhile Liberal Baby Boomers like my parents have been complaining about the Republican party for the same reasons that generations after them have complained about for DECADES. My mom was in Highschool when Nixon was impeached. I ask her today, is the republican party different than what you grew up with. Her response was no. It had always been his way. The irritating baby boomer you describe is a white conservative. And not all Baby Boomers are this. Though it does speak to their political power if they are the ones who define what baby boomers are.

  • Basically, boomers are trash and have always been trash. They took a flourishing country and squeezed everything they could from it to enrich themselves with no concern or thought for future generations.

  • In Britain, we were provided with two options for our Head of Government: A socialist white man born in 1949 who endeavoured to invest in the young, protect public establishments that had benefitted his generation and to build more national institutions to further benefit the future with kindness at the heart of all he did. A chauvanistic, sexist-talking, racist-talking white man born in 1964 who had been fired from journalism for lying, had been fired from politics for lying, had had 6 children by 3 women at the time of the election (now 7 from 4) and had cheated on every single one. He has also supported an ongoing under-the-radar campaign of selling off the public institutions that supported him and his generation through their formative years while continuing to pledge to protect them. Guess which one the Baby Boomers voted for.

    • When eugenists and (nationalist) socialists like G. Stanley Hall reformed generations and even years of birth to walk in lockstep, obviously the biggest benefactor would be the biggest generations and years of birth able to use mass to walk over the fractured community. Boomers are boomers not only because there's so many, it's because they didn't have as amny children themselves. Boomers didn't invest in children, they invested in getting their neighbor's money to work for them.

  • Mexico in the sixties also saw a wave of inconformity, but it was met with much harsher methods of repression, Tlatelolco in 1968 is one of our most shameful moments of government repression, hundreds of students were killed and prosecuted, our parents still speak of how the police entered households looking for teenagers and killing them, along with their families if they dared to oppose. Look up "Rojo Amanecer" It depicts that fateful night and the wound on Mexico's "Baby Boomer" generation.

When it comes down to brass tax they had it great and ruined if for everyone after and plan to leech off the rest (with pensions that no longer exist for those hired nowadays) in the next two decades as they finally retire and die off. And they will do so alone since they have had a penchant for driving away their children and siblings.

  • It still comes down to other age old observations: fear used to control us, others using that fear to keep other people at war with each other, and mis-observations of ourselves as humans. Humor does help and can be therapeutic , but that depends if it's used as springboard for yourself to do better and do what works for you, or just sit in your shit for the rest of your life yelling at others who rather live without certain shit.

  • All I know is that it's supposed to be elders, not prime-of-their-life adults, who rile against 'kids these days' and their daw-gone flyin' machines and going 'up hill both ways in twenty feet of snow to get to school'. At first, I thought it was a concision to aging, like somehow bitching about how doomed we are going to be without them is magically going to turn back the clock and freeze time in this idealistic period in which they ruled supreme. However, Boomers seemed almost eager to take up this mantle and my millennial ass has been hearing how she's 'lazy entitled and good-for-nothing' since she was fourteen. And now we have the more pretentious among us millennials (now in to their twenties and thirties) going on about 'kids these days' and how today's music sucks and crap. I suppose Gen Z is in for eight-year-olds who go on and on about how spoiled and useless those hopeless seven-year-olds are.

  • (I originally posted this on their Rugrats video, but it also really applies to this video as well) I really dislike the "Ok Boomer" meme because I feel like it doesn't really represent the good boomers. For example, isn't one stereotype of Boomers that they make fun of Millennials for being too sensitive? I think this is where the Rugrats parents come in (super overprotective, worried about their babies not having perfect childhoods), as they are Boomers obviously, but the ones who made Millennials who they are. It's the older Boomers who raised their children in the 70s and early 80s who complain about millennials being raised too sensitive. Not as much the parents who raised their kids in the late 80s and 90s, who created the stereotypes of what a millennial is.

    • May as well, but then such a boomer wouldn't be sensitive to being told "ok boomer" if they're half aas fair as you make them out to be. Realistically those people especially have no clue how easy they had it, because they live entirely on survivor's bias after being successful on one bubble economy or another while the childless and homeless of the same generation didn't live to tell their tale. They didn't even get TV characters representing them. and there's many, because boomers didn't have enough kids to self-replicate unless you count people with 5+ children.

  • I am 20 years old, but I will say this: the phrase "ok boomer" is a form of fallacy, that is, they are dismissing the arguments or any statement of a person over 50 years old solely because of their age, the idiots who use it to make fun of their elders are doing the same thing they do to them for being young, dismissing them for their age. But age has nothing to do with the quality of a person's statements, don't be so assholes. Older adults have the same right to express themselves in networks and they have many interesting and good things to contribute, the best scientists and philosophers in the world are "boomers", they deserve respect and admiration. How can they disrespect and despise people who are surely in the age range of their parents, who support them and give them all the luxuries they have, such as having internet and a pc to have networks with which to make fun of the old, go they are wrong and giles the guachos of my age.

They loved blaming younger generations while ignoring that most of their decision caused massive racisms, alienations between different countries, 2 world wars, the decline of economy, etc. They loved to blame anyone and anything to cover up the fact that it was their own damn fault that the younger generations suffered

  • There are still many good boomers out here including the ones I know which is a facct that I can't write the rest of this comment without acknowledging but let's not forget that they still abuse random people they never met just for being younger then them, brain wash younger people into thinking they have to respect people who are older then them and not defend themselves against abuse from older people and beat their children leaving them responsible for people today who have abusive parents while using "Their old" as an excuse not to say something to your grand parents for the abusive tactics they use against anyone who's younger then them. If you want to say something to your grand parents, you are entitled to speak your mind in whatever tone of voice you want since they ruined your life to make their own better and abused their own children with manipulative tactics for being right and using these tactics to target any younger person they find fault with for existing who are strangers which is why you get old people screaming at you for being too close to their car(1 or more meters away), canceling offers or using emotional abuse to get you to lower your price when they meet and find out the seller is a young adult which I doubt with regularly as a seller, talk about how bad millennials are publicly because they know their listening(When it was the boomers fault for everything), saying things like "Look at that person" out loud while openly pointing when someone younger sports a modern fashion boomers didn't have, screaming louder and louder to use verbal abuse to silence younger people when their right and can't handle admitting that their wrong, especially when 20 year old me knows more about electronics from their era then they do(Since we can just use the internet to learn what we want when we want, know the long term issues, and have better access to tools making us overall more intelligent having more potential taken away by their abuse and destruction of the economy), and are just openly disappointed and wipe the smile off their face upon seeing someone younger then them. The biggest problem today is them destroying younger people's mental health with all kinds of abuse and manipulating them to think the abuse is normal or not wrong until it's too late. If you think you shouldn't punish someone, point out that their wrong, and have to take unnecessary constant criticism just because their old, you were most likely a victim of that manipulation and abuse without realizing it regardless of what generation you're from and you should know that they deserve no more respect then you and must be disciplined for the things their doing wrong regardless of their age. Anyone from an older generation who is offended by this comment is most likely one of those people. Younger people today who don't recognize these issue are going to be hated for the same reasons years from now and we can already see it starting with millennials who repeated their mistakes instead of realizing their parents were wrong.

  • The boomers are a temporary problem - with enough time, they'll all be dead, and slowly our generation will make up the biggest voter demographic. By then, if our generation wants universal healthcare and serious action against global warming, you can be damn certain we're going to get it. I wonder though how we're going to be what prevents society from going forward, like boomers currently are doing. I don't doubt it will happen, I'm just wondering in what ways.

  • To me ok boomer is a response to a mindset, not specifically an age. It's a response to the conservative, close minded and often xenohpobic mentality that is commonly seen amongst baby boomers, it's not specifically against the boomers. Saying ok boomer to someone isn't an act of ageism, it's a way of saying that your opinion is invalid because of how close minded it is or the general mentality you have.

  • I see in the comments many ideas younger people hold about older people...all of them wrong. For example, buying houses. How'd anyone get the idea that it's been easy for "Boomers" to buy a house? For that matter, who gets to decide who's a boomer, who's millenial, who's Generation X (a term coined to describe an earlier generation than the one it's being applied to)? These nicknames for generations (where the fuck's the dividing line between generations?) are not helping a damned bit. When I was a kid, I spent a lot of time around the sort of people that are generally being labeled as "hippies". They never called themselves that...why should they? They were just young people doing the same kind of shit any young person does. The term "hippie" was in the news, idiots who didn't know what was up started calling any young person who didn't act the way they liked hippy...but it took until recent decades before young people started getting the idea that the older people making the money and calling the shots had been hippies. Sure, some small percentage did, but either they never held the ideals of hippies, or they were sell-outs. The vast majority of "boomers" were never hippies and never called themselves hippies, unless they were pretending to be cool. The worst part, is the blaming of the previous generations for what's wrong in the world. If you're old enough to vote, but don't (no matter what age you are), then you're part of the problem. Shit, if young people had not chosen to blow it off in 2016, we wouldn't be going through so much crap with the asshole in the white house. Or, turning it around, if older people hadn't blown off voting in 2016, we wouldn't be stuck with that POS. See, voting is more than a right...it's a responsibility, a duty. One that's much too easy to blow off. Do you know what percent of Americans vote, year after year? Not very damned many. I used to blow it off, too. As I've heard it said plenty of times over the years, if you don't vote, don't complain about the results. Here's the worst part. The idea that older people need to be told by young people what the facts are...about anything. If you find yourself having to explain the same tired shit over and over...it has nothing to do with the age of the person you're trying to inform--it's only that that person is an ignorant POS who deserves a bit of hatred. Yeah, you'll always find that many older people know less about the things you care about than you do--but you'll always find just as many people your age and younger who're just as ignorant and hateful. It's just human nature to look for excuses for blaming others for your own problems. No, I take it back. Here's the worst part, while people who actually care about others, about the environment, about anything worth caring about, are busy bitching and moaning about how other people just don't understand you, shit for brains types are busy taking advantage...if the bigoted scum had been so fragmented as those giving more than a rat's ass, they would never have gained power. The Republican party isn't at all what it was forty years ago, or even twenty years ago. It's gotten to the point where the old school Republicans are very often agreeing with the left! There is no longer a conservative party in the US, and I'm not sure we can even say there's a real liberal party, either. The world has turned to shit, and we're all sinking into the mire. All of us but the rich. While the rest of us are busy misunderstanding each other, wealthy people are busy raking in the money and the power...with each gain in either, they're making it harder and harder to fix things, which is exactly what they want. Hate all you want, but make sure you've chosen the right people to hate. Don't go around hating just out of ignorance. Until you know what someone's motivations are, give people the benefit of doubt. That goes both directions, too. Previous generations had a more difficult time finding out the facts--but no longer. Recent generations have little to no excuse--they've grown up with that access to knowledge at their fingertips. But, no matter which generation, the stupid and the lazy outnumber the rest of us. Don't be part of the problem. I've said far more than I'd intended to, and I may not be making my point properly, but I hope I've given at least a few people some thoughts to mull over.

  • turning the debate into generational differences, only focusing on the fact that people's personalities are dependent upon which era they were born distracts us from criticising the economic and political system we are in. the truth is, millenials would have ended up just like boomers in similar conditions, and vice versa. whereas, some people (do not call 911 pls) like marx and engels predicted capitalism would thrive on major economic growth followed by crises. similar intergenerational conflicts would follow if we continue down this rabbithole and somehow manage not to go extinct for at least a couple of generations. indeed, intergenerational conflicts have existed since the dawn of time but they were not as economically affected and probably not as deep. instead of boomer or millenial or gen sth hating, we should come together and question the too unstable and stressful system that governs our lives.

These people were given everything. Everything was handed to them. And they took it all: sex, drugs, and rock and roll, and they stayed loaded for 20 years and had a free ride." "But now they're staring down the barrel of old age burnout, and they don't like it. So they've turned self-righteous. They want to make things harder on younger people. They tell 'em, abstain from sex, say no to drugs; as for the rock and roll, they sold that for television commercials a long time ago...so they could buy pasta machines and Stairmasters and soybean futures."

Boomers would try their best to stop home construction in their neighborhood to rise their own house prices due to lack houses quantity, they would profit beyond their means off younger generation with wanting more and more for same pay, and they had lead global warming to a extent that will effect the Earth for hundreds of decades. Let's not even talk about how they exploit younger generation woman yuck. At the end of the day I forgive Boomers. I wouldnt ever want someone to leave this Earth with my hate.

  • Generalizations are always flawed. We need to give each other the benefit of the doubt, manage to have a little more empathy, and try to understand each other as individuals. This video was well-researched and very professionally done. The host was articulate, but I would like to point out one small issue: The phrase “hating ON boomers” is grammatically incorrect. The preposition, “on,” is not needed in this phrase, as “boomer” is the direct object. The grammatically correct phrase is “hating boomers.” Here you have the verbal (a gerund, to be specific) and it’s direct object working properly together and unencumbered by a gratuitous preposition. Here’s the identical grammatical situation with new words: liking ice cream, not liking “ON” ice cream (Sentence: Is liking ice cream typical?) The above comments are offered as friendly, constructive criticism only. Thanks for a very educational video.

  • I’m gen z, my older sister is a young millennial, my parents are young boomers, and my grandparents are the silent generation. I always find it interesting to talk to my grandparents because they saw boomers in the first wave of hate they got and now they’re seeing the second wave, while also seeing boomers taking it out on millennials and gen z. Also the silent generation is low key forgotten. People act like everyone older than 55 is a boomer and the silent generation is always left out of the memes. My grandparents always bring that up

    • Boomers are selfish and logic rarely applied to them. They loved blaming younger generations while ignoring that most of their decision caused massive racisms, alienations between different countries, 2 world wars, the decline of economy, etc. They loved to blame anyone and anything to cover up the fact that it was their own damn fault that the younger generations suffered

The ONLY kind of people who NEVER apologize are NARCISSISTS and the fact that you look DOWN on people who have the courage and class to apologize indicates that you might be a narcissist!

  • There are some radical differences between the Boomers and the Millennials. First, the Boomers got a parent focused education (television was seen as a privilege, not a right), the Millennials were left in front of the television to be socially educated, entered every fantasy, and didn't learn how to struggle and be social: Television characters are now their gods, look at the Cosplay in the fantasy, comic con, and science fiction conventions. The Boomers came with the victory of World War Two and the end of the Great Depression with a 3x economic boost, and making for the first time in American history disposable income for teenagers that got a really big money boost early in their lives; where, by comparison, the Millennials see a stingy market that doesn't want to pay them and instead expects the Boomer parents to pay for the employment cost of living expenses (nobody is leaving home). Boomers got a lot of trust in the Government without too much oversight, where the Millennials (due to the Boomers) got a lot of restrictions and an overpowering government that has entered our daily lives. The Boomers are stingy in their old age, they don't share well, and they mistrust many things, and this is by their own experience of being wild and making their own choices (the Woodstock people of 1969 who went wild, then went on television and said we need to control our illegitimate children), they want control; hence, the Millennials see too little, too late, too often, and there is resentment, because history shows a different world than the one they have (it is always about the gods of sex, money, and power, and the Boomers took advantage of their blessings and put in control that they didn't have). In terms of wealth, the Boomers sold out America to foreign markets, they did this on purpose, such as with China, to pretend that they can save the world, but the cost is the downturn of American economic activity with a bigger population than ever before, and this is having long term effects on the economy. The Boomers want to save the world, and the Millennials are seeing excessive government regulation that keeps them from making their own business practices. The Boomers despised the religious feelings of the Great Generation (their parents had a 68% church going rate, every week, not just twice a year), and sabotaged God, Jesus Christ, and Church at a whopping 50% drop-out rate of those families who attended church (they didn't just leave, they attacked religious feelings and downplayed everything), and then blessed the Millennials with even less religion (in 50-years, American reversed its public religious views, we are a pagan, heathen nation with only 35% of the population believes that the Holy Bible is true). The narrator is correct, the Great Generation (the parents of the Boomers) sowed the seeds of the Internet, super-highways, electronic computers, GPS, satellite communications, television, digital telephone, Moon landings, space age technology, plastics, automobile culture, fast food, global reach military, and nation-wide telephone that the Boomers enjoyed. In conclusion, you win some, you lose some.

  • The public is divided between two views. First, the Past always appears better than the present, because we are survivors and winners and already went through it. Second, the new generation seeks to distance itself from the past generation, thus the Boomers are considered the old way by the Millennials. When Joe Biden attacks the Boomers it is because he is one of them and sees them as competitors.

  • Just a theory: Re creation of hateful recreational repeated generational activities will only lead to the same reboot endlessly. The young hate the old & the old hate the young because that’s what has always been taught & done. We are continually Re teaching this kind of objectivity. None of us are indifferent to the levels of this kind of stupidity. Thusly in the defense of such traditions we are destroying our own developmental devices through out & within the cultural spectrum of society. Hereby confirming & condemning the next generation to repeat this travesty. Perhaps, it’s time to let go of animosity vs. affinity and replace it with reflections of both qualities. You know, learn something different for the sake of social behavioral sanity. -Just a theory

  • I think the hatred and mocking of boomers is absolutely justified because they had it so much easier than we did. When we consider government handouts because we can't afford basic living they mock us. If we have 1 job they say get more. They act like we don't know what hard work is when they protested and didn't have to worry about missing work and we manage to somehow still work over 30 hours a week and protest for what actually matters. If you want to hear an interesting song listen to Baepsae or silver spoon by BTS. Even in korea they have a similar issue where the older generation claims the kids have it easy when the kids are struggling to even exist. And when the younger people worship kpop or focus on beauty it's because that's all they have and they are trying to learn how to love themselves while so many boomers will not.

I swears Millenials are such crybabies and perpetual victims. No wonder both the older and younger generations look down on you.
