In a soon to be locked post a bunch of ill informed poasters all began heaping crap on your parents.

  • Some blamed the Boomers
  • Some blamed Gen X

Help us solve this burning mystery!

.

I for one am a child-of-the-sixties, hung out in Seattle-of-the-Nineties Gen X'er with two kids in elementary school.  Most of the parents of the kids in my school are also Gen X... meaning our kids are ~ Gen Z?

.

So who parented the Millennials?

.

Also - a tank-related question: How many Tier VI and above Premium Tanks do you own?

Well, in short me and my siblings were our parents. We're all home schooled, and while our parents worked during the day, we would *parent* ourselves. TBH the best thing my parents have ever done.

Yeah... hate on the milennials

 

We were the ones who crashed the housing market, poisoned the air and water, carried out regime change wars, exploded college tuition and healthcare premiums, etc. 

 

We are surely to blame.

You could literally do this with any group. Just ask a bigillion people questions and edit out all the smart ones and make any group you want look stupid. 

 

I've met way more hopeless idiots over 50 than under 30.

Basically reversed mortgaged the economy and set up later generations to fail while enjoying the good life that said not all by any means did it as individuals but the generations are morally bankrupt. Going to be some interesting experiences as the next couple of decades play out given that this country along with the rest of the west is in decline much like how Rome and Babylon in their day.

My generation, the baby boomers, were the generation that demonstrated against the war in Vietnam and got the environmental movement off the ground. You have much cleaner air to breath and water to drink thanks to us.

 

 

 

We were not the generation that created the Federal Reserve and took the U.S. monetary system off the gold and silver standard, both of which led to a fiat monetary system and had a part to play in the financial crisis in 2008 and the current national debt. 

 

I don't know when this first quote was made but I've been posting it since the 1990s:

 

"We are absolutely without a permanent monetary system. When one gets a complete grasp of the picture, the tragic absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible - but there it is. It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it is widely understood and the defect remedied soon." - Robert H. Hemphill, former Credit Manager of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta

 

  "When business in the United States underwent a mild contraction in 1927, the Federal Reserve created more paper reserves in the hope of forestalling any possible bank reserve shortage.  More disastrous, however, was the Federal Reserve's attempt to assist Great Britain who had been losing gold to us because the Bank of England refused to allow interest rates to rise when market forces dictated (it was politically unpalatable).  The reasoning of the authorities involved was as follows: if the Federal Reserve pumped excessive paper reserves into American banks, interest rates in the United States would fall to a level comparable with those in Great Britain; this would act to stop Britain's gold loss and avoid the political embarrassment of having to raise interest rates."
   The "Fed" succeeded: it stopped the gold loss, but it nearly destroyed the economies of the world in the process. The excess credit which the Fed pumped into the economy spilled over into the stock market - triggering a fantastic speculative boom.  Belatedly, Federal Reserve officials attempted to sop up the excess reserves and finally succeeded in braking the boom.  But it was too late: by 1929 the speculative imbalances had become so overwhelming that the attempt precipitated a sharp retrenching and a consequent demoralizing of business confidence.  Great Britain fared even worse, and rather than absorb the full consequences of her previous folly, she abandoned the gold standard completely in 1931, tearing asunder what remained of the fabric of confidence and inducing a world-wide series of bank failures.  The world economies plunged into the Great Depression of the 1930's."
- Former Federal Reserve Chariman Alan Greenspan, 1966.
