Triggered degenerate Boomers

Not to be confused with salt of the earth Boomers I hardly ever need to discuss, who aren’t hypocrites and expected their kids to listen when they gave sound health advice.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/oct/11/young-people-drunk-acohol-millenials

Normally when you see this line.

What’s wrong with young people today?

The next sentence better be fucking good.

The Groaniad today continues:

They don’t get drunk any more

WTF.
It’s a new low in moral decay that the elders are trying desperately to corrupt their children.
Alcohol is ridiculous (social media rep), expensive, a stupid (not glamorous) legal dark grey area and an addictive distraction from the important business of networking (which we wouldn’t have to do if you didn’t import competition and switch to offshore training).
We’re told to “protect ourselves”, cannot own a gun or knife or spray in public and given the most common date rape drug is alcohol, why bother?

[see end for that topic]

Nobody wants to be blamed for their own rape or other abuse, especially in this multicultural Hell of rape gangs expressly targeting the white (what hate crime?) and drunk (predators love legal nitpicking). Clubs are losing popularity because women hate hunting grounds. Clubs exist for men and the lowest kind. Pubs more popular than ever, for comparison. Low odds of rape, groping, grinding and (especially Third World) harassment there. Naturally, the club creeps use alcohol as their excuse too. Scientifically false, drunk people can behave impeccably, as you’ll notice the second the police turn up. Other sedatives are not a free pass on assault either.

“We have made people’s memory worse by telling them that they were intoxicated even though they had nothing stronger than plain flat tonic water with limes,” said co-researcher Maryanne Garry.
So an intake of so-called moderate alcohol wouldn’t be wise either, before someone chimes in.

Think of it as a precautionary legal defense from rapists who take advantage of slow law changes (no major interventions since Queen Victoria’s reign, and on gin) and the crawling consideration of the latest neuroscience. Sugar isn’t cocaine and alcohol doesn’t turn a law-abiding citizen into a rabid rapist, men are not naturally rapists. Nor does it bring that out as an animal instinct, society conditions excuses. You can’t take from a bank drunk and say Muh It Doesn’t Count as robbery, neither can you “take” a human being in rape and victim-blame for the “hate crime” of being white and attractive (note: imagine the pedophiles and other dedicated rapists in response* to that). This is why we need studies, psychology is not common sense. They don’t dare mention where alcohol is consumed (privately, at home) and why (visibly valid concerns about public safety relating to the new low trust society).

It isn’t about women trusting strange men (and why the hell should they? when has that ever been intelligent historically?? and do they trust their fellow random men either?*) it’s that throughout society, there is no trust. Again, why should there be? Burden of Proof. So much rape and abuse isn’t recorded or reported due to political fears of revenge that there are active reasons to distrust, fuck your snowflake feelings on the subject. Why do these broflakes feel entitled to trust they didn’t earn? Normal people (i.e. not manwhores) have lower openness scores. It’s like the funniest red handed moment “how dare you notice I only want one thing and am willing to take it unwillingly, I wanted to rape you if I could get away with it but you hurt my narc feelings, I demand satisfaction”.

Unless you’d prefer women be armed? That would be better.

Predators believe only they are real – their urges, rights etc.
The prey isn’t allowed to plan, complain or have equal HUMAN rights.

*Rapists are as real and sneaky as serial killers, simply different types of predator.

**I bet they don’t let male salesmen into their house, the paranoid sexist pigs. Straight men in gay bars don’t dare get drunk, I rest my case.

Etiquette needs to return, no talking to strangers is basic.

Teen films are fiction, there’s a crime about every five minutes, it’s normalized. Forcing someone to consume alcohol, by coercion or “slipping” covertly, aside from being illegal (directly responsible) if they have any medical issues from it you didn’t know, is poisoning. Then there are the various chemicals in alcohol that are well-known as rape drugs specifically e.g. GHB in wine. Then there’s finally on this point how women are weakened more by alcohol than men so any arguments to “she was with it” ring false from simple sex differences and accurate biology (no woman can handle alcohol, none, it’s a Hollywood myth based on the 30s vamp who’d take one single shot of a hard liquor and stop there).

Why don’t the would-be (totally not definitely never) rapists want people to defend themselves in their company by remaining of lucid consciousness? If they’re so concerned with “false” allegations? Makes you think.

Surely you’d want all women in the club not drinking so when they consent to you, it’s legally kosher. Unless of course, you’re “taking advantage”, and want them insensible, the politest term for rape we have.

And if you only sleep with brain-impaired strangers, don’t you expect allegations?
Why can’t you get your “fun” from sober people?

They try to blame the victim a sneakier way (planning legal defense months before the act itself isn’t odd?) by asking a false dichotomy and presenting a cliche anecdote that acts like the sexes are biologically the same, namely, what if they’re both drunk? The one who physically initiates is the rapist, obviously. Actus reus, look it up, idiots.

https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/actus_reus

They think they’ve got an AHA! moment on the “both drunk” condition but it’s the simpleton logic of pointing to a car pileup after an accident and claiming all of the cars in question caused it. Non sequitur much?

And define drunk? Given sex differences, you’re still stupid.

Back to booze

Alcohol causes permanent DNA damage and while older people may not care, we’re clued-up enough on science to care an awful lot. It may even pass down the germline (epigenetics).
https://newatlas.com/alcohol-cancer-dna-damage-stem-cell/52813/
Why?
Well, since we’ll be working our entire lives (retirement is a temporary fad) then staying working fit is imperative.

“It concerns me how much people over a certain age brag about their alcohol intake like they don’t have a problem.”
Yes, agree, let’s all aspire to be like the alcoholic divorcees!
Definitely not addictive, is it? They can give up any time they like.
They wanted clean living kids, they got them. If they’re so triggered by the fact their children are literally better than them, their narcissism is not our problem.
Opposing the degeneracy when we see the Bacchanalian wages of it, how absolutely awful of us.

It does count, and anyone who says otherwise is a willing mark in a game of Spot the Rapist. It’s a chemical that impairs the brain from threat recognition and literally weakens the physical ability to resist (fend off). It’s also most common in male rape, regardless of victim age. The law requires adjustments.

Much like this post.

I’m completely in love with this world and with being alive in it. I love the beauty of Nature and all of its life forms, each beautiful and complete in its own way, just like this dragonfly:

I would ask if Tyler is high but always assume yes.

These posts imply this milking wasn’t planned.

Oh sweet Summer child.

And it isn’t a milking of a system but the humans in it.

Remember that.

Very Matrix.

It’s a simple transfer, largely inter-generational.

When the youth feed the old, everybody dies.
It’s perverse, unnatural, impossible.

You “won” WW2, now what?

Go forth and multiply was the one job! ONE JOB.

Instead they chose abortions. Okay, you chose to retire on a cat food diet.

It isn’t as harsh as the people who came later with no choice about the globalist mess.

Who would you have been, what life would you lead, if they’d done their duty?

The matriarchs and patriarchs have always had a duty to their children.
Not the other way around. You can’t re-write the social contract.

Obamacare et al is an attempt at that.

Nature lives or fails.

When the insects go, the food supply with it.

Look at real estate. Rich people think it will hold. They’re stupid.

A house is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

If it is in an area of increasing diversity, crime and public prayer, it’s worthless.

You don’t invest in the soil, it’s the people enriching it. Shit would be more valuable to land than some people.

There are three types of traitor in this.

  1. globalists
  2. the self-loathing fifth column
  3. often forgotten, the parents who sold their children.

Without 3, the others would have failed.

Selfish individual materialism killed the West, it’s the new old religion.

The magic lamp of fiat. You can have anything you desire, says the Devil, if you give me your firstborn.

You can only live in one house, Boomers with a spare. The taxes for property speculation are kept artificially low.
They see smart people making investments (inc. landed gentry) and assume it’s 1. easy and 2. easy money. Managing anything is hard and while they’ve been fine for decades, there will be a short, sharp, sudden equity release like the tulip craze.

Every time you introduce globalized competition, competing with the world, the price shoots up.

(or down for wages)

Weren’t the natives owed their national resources first?

International education – look at tuition fees now.

International living – look at property prices as multiculturalism was “experimented”.

How are dual passports legal?

International entertainment – say, how much is a cinema ticket?

It’s staring you in the face.

Multiculturalism and encouraged non-European overpopulation are the cause of inflation.

Supply/demand.

Compare the CPI to global population. See for yourself.

The new citizens cannot afford to live here and as soon as special treatment disappears, they will mostly leave.

In the same way a weak harvest attracts few locust.

Why are we expected to be white saviour and pay for the wages of others’ sin?

#2 Every race has a duty to be sustainable in and of itself.

If an organism cannot self-regulate, it perishes.

Look at India’s water problem recently.

We gave them contraception and they didn’t use it.

Mouths to feed is not an advantage when resources contract back to NORMAL levels.

This is the utopia. It doesn’t feel like it because the pie is shared between billions of people. If all populations were at 1900 levels, we’d all be living like KINGS.

The new level is lower than anything we know. Standard of living won’t stop dropping.

Lower, lower, think lower…lower. There ya go.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the world returns to subsistence level for a while.

The foreign aid communism is worse than a war. We will have to pay the sins of our fathers.

The Malthusian trap is already closing, why do you think Africans (and Asians) are coming to Europe, instead of Asia?

If you want to see the truly successful, look who attracts the most parasites.
They still have the British Empire belief that white people will always protect and feed them.

Not the socialists.

Africa is “leapfrogging” and highly fragile. Taleb shakes his head.

Demographic transition was supposed to happen 50 years ago. They’ll never adjust.
Heck, they won’t grow their own food.

Race doesn’t exist and we’re all equal = we owe them nothing but they owe us trillions in centuries of development money. Hey, if Israel can hold long debts, so can we.

Africa can’t even be used as slaves to work it off, China wants to replace them with robots.

Heck, it’s worse than that because we didn’t just fail to regulate ourselves; we just ignored the math. 

We?

Here are some simple math problems we could have easily seen coming, but chose not to:

Simple math says more people trying to eat dwindling fossil fuels is a predicament.  Who’s actually doing anything serious about that on the world stage right now?

Tesla tried warning you but they bankrupted him.

Even easier math says that our pension and entitlement promises to ourselves cannot ever be met. What’s realistically being done about any of that?  Nothing as far as I can tell.

Useful idiots of the left.

At least if they murder the golden goose, they too will die.

We’re really more the age of aluminium or the era of Soros.
Both toxic intrusions we allowed for mercantile profiteering.

Cancerous growth is the theory of Communist growth. They must be imperialists (see China buying Africans) and expand, to absorb more humans and milk those too.

In practice, the productive lose heart like a lion in a cage.

The English lion’s been in a cage about a century.

“Demoralization is actually a realistic response under certain conditions.”

It’s a response to genocidal conditions that suppress life and ability to thrive.

Nothing else makes biological sense, c.

They want you to self-hate, to be apathetic and to lose hope/faith.

Do the exact opposite.

The only plan of any government is to grow its economy and secure more power for itself.”

Nationalism.

AKA the only system proven to work.

Look at IQ fluctuations too, that’s a barrel of laughs.

As for the people who deny all of this statistical fact:

Why Big Pensions kill societies

http://anepigone.blogspot.co.uk/2005/10/numbers-game-is-life-or-death.html

Of all the welfare, it’s the biggest and most undeserved chunk.

Unlike a child, they could work.

Unlike a child, they could have saved.

Unlike a child, they demand non-relatives with no control over their existence to slave for them.

It is impossible to continue a society with any prosperity while the old votes themselves in the lifeblood of the young. There should be a sane limit on all pensions so we can’t fund them out of debt, at least. We talk about genocide and this is a genocidal condition – its effect literally suppresses the birth rate.

Gen Y cannot afford to have children, look around.

Gen Y cannot afford to get married either, which ought to come first.

Gen Y can barely even afford to move out. These are facts.

There has been too much inter-generational theft – sorry – wealth transfer. It’s ageist. They don’t deserve all kinds of free shit because they survived a certain number of solar cycles.

The elderly now are the most spoiled in history. It shows.

No generation before had the luxuries they do. Still, they want more.

Nobody after will enjoy the same either. A huge shift of redpilling in the young as they figure this out.

Softly, softly.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/07/generation-y-pay-price-baby-boomer-pensions

It killed Rome, it’s killing us. I think it’s absurd to expect someone else’s children should fund your dotage. It’s the most negative manifestation of nationalism. I am your neighbour, I owe you fuck-all because of that coincidence. An Englishman’s home is his castle, and we hate intruders (including relatives).

I will find it particularly sweet when the public sector workers don’t get paid by Daddy Government. Let the police blame the teachers, the teachers blame the unions, the unions blame the police. Let them at one another, all screaming LEECH. Let’s see how much they love their socialist whip hands then.

https://www.theguardian.com/membership/2017/jan/23/saving-retirement-pension-generation-old-age

https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/london-life/is-this-why-millennials-arent-having-babies-a3288601.html

Quick question: Do you currently have over $245,000 (£180,000) in your bank account? That’s how much the U.S. Department of Agriculture projected it would cost a middle-income couple to raise a child to the age of 18 in 2013. For higher-income families, that cost ballooned to $455,000 (£330,000).

Might be?

And that’s ONE child. We aren’t even talking replacement.

I heard a very shrewd man say “marriage is for the rich” and he’s spot on.

Who made it so expensive to have kids?

The Boomers. Pressure on all things wedding, baby and schooling.
Oh, but the fertile nulliparous workers are being taxed to pay for other children’s food/shelter and schooling. We’re literally rewarding the stupid fuckers. Forcing us to barely get by and never save, as a generation. So you can’t borrow the money (it’ll go up) and you’re being leeched off and you can’t save.

Not to mention, if men choose to never propose, baby machine isn’t getting switched on. Ever. K-women need that security. The anti-natal propaganda has worked just fine on many of the dunces among men, who are literally committing genetic suicide but tell themselves it’s a good thing. They might as well self-castrate. Gods like Zeus weren’t revered for fucking around, if you actually read they were revered for their fertility – making lots of heirs.

When the Baby Boomers complain “their” pensions disappeared, we can all point and laugh. “Yep, that’s what you get when you genocide your own children.” We know many of the immigrant children are not being supported by working parents. So they will never support the pension system either.

It’s already happening. We in the West have done all the worst things possible – abortion, easy divorce, adultery, fornication with abortifacients (still counts) and medicine exclusively to keep the old and infirm a burden on the workers.

Now there’s a baby bust, apparently. Three generations in the making. Thanks, Sexual Revolution!

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-22/millennials-have-ushered-baby-bust-cycle

It just so happens to coincide with handing out birth control like Smarties.

Do the people pretending to care about population replacement want to restrict birth control, the way it was originally intended? To just married parents who didn’t want more? Nope, and those degenerate single people are part of the problem. Their ride on the gravy train will be over pretty soon too. Almost everything we fund presently is temporary, inc. STD and abortion clinics. So these things will correct in the coming years but it won’t be pretty. I’m just saying we take the bitter pill now (including my lot, that did nothing wrong but be born) instead of the fatal one later. That would be logical… so everyone fights me on this.

Selling our country (literally, the land) has priced out the fertile natives.

https://www.citylab.com/life/2018/02/a-fix-to-the-uk-housing-crunch-have-more-money/553574/

Yay, more genocide.

It’s impossible to push against more than one of these trends. They’re bigger than people.

Where are the kids meant to live? School catchment areas? I read about those recently for a friend and they’re a huge factor in pricing (basically the more white an area, the better the hospitals, schools etc, low crime). A premium for the rarity of living among one’s own. It never used to be expensive because it never used to be a rarity.

The fact you can get welfare to live in London, paid for by people who can’t afford to, floors me.

The parents/grandparents would rather live in undeserved luxury than provide for the spawn they didn’t abort.

This world makes me sick.

These forces cannot continue much longer. It’s impossible to do the right thing.

The worst pressure amounting to white genocide comes from older white people. This is how Empires fall.

In a world where you can’t even sit down for an ice cream to calm down, even Ben & Jerry’s ice cream contains pesticides that reduce your fertility and the drinking water includes birth control. That is disgusting. Ban it on environmental grounds alone.

Millennials suck because society is dying

https://henrydampier.wordpress.com/2014/12/10/why-millenials-are-garbage/

  • Low trust society
  • Shit parenting
  • No standards

I don’t think Gen Z will save the world though. That’s equally silly.

I think it’ll be a combination of Z with Y leadership.

The cancer is entitlement. It kills every civilization starting with its civility (trust, unity).

Millennials oppose carousing

Millennials think getting drunk is ‘pathetic’ and ’embarrassing’

Binge-drinking. Old term for binge-drinking.

Not that alcohol is completely out of the picture, but if you go beyond tipsy in public, you’ll be ostracized. Maybe the same evening, not that you’d remember. It’s not just work events, it’s seen as irresponsible because other people must babysit you.

Mocktails taste better, are cheaper and you actually remember the social event while looking cool, because you aren’t drunk.

It isn’t hot when your grandparents or even great-grandparents do/did it.

“Today in research that makes us feel like old, drunken messes, apparently young people don’t think getting drunk is cool. In fact, they think it’s ‘pathetic’ and ’embarrassing’.

the hostility of that apparently
whew

Eventbrite’s nationwide survey of 1,023 millennials found that alcohol consumption is on the decline in the younger generation, with millennials only consuming an average of five units a week. Only 1 in 10 of those surveyed said they view getting drunk as cool. The rest listed the act of getting drunk as ‘pathetic’, ’embarrassing’, and ‘belonging to an older generation’. We repeat: Ouch.

generally a waste of money
Consumption too conspicuous.

The survey found that in general, getting hammered is no longer something to be proud of among millennials. No longer do young people brag about tactical chunders and passing out with their trousers half way down their legs. Instead, 70% of those surveyed said they’d rather brag about how long it’s been since their last drink, rather than how much they last drunk.”

It isn’t glamorous. It never was, we see through marketing.
Men are not Bond, and women don’t look good either.
Social media makes this very apparent. Cringe.

“In short: Millennials really aren’t that excited about booze anymore, and they think you’re a bit uncool for throwing back shots at every opportunity.”

One round of shots, maybe, for who wants to. Possibly two. But I’ve seen older people try and shame younger about not wanting to drink and it’s just really sad and wrong.

It’s the Boomer Mad Men thing, I guarantee it. Wearing a tie doesn’t make you any less the pathetic alcoholic.
Think of the celebrities who still do it, all trash. Worse, clubber trash. The kind to brag about bottle service (it’s a bottle, calm down). We’d be more impressed by luxury mineral water.
To be perfectly frank, watching aged hippies get sloppy, throw up on themselves and get seductive with people young enough to be their children is enough to put anyone off, really.

Gen Y error correction

Millennials are so SJW because they think they stand to gain £££££££.

When the promises of the Left prove false, such as home ownership, stable work and retirement….

A sea change wouldn’t describe it, tsunami might.

We’re completely self-indulgent but it’s a secondary effect of generational depression.
Gen X were angry, we’re depressed, Z are apathetic.

“I’m a millennial, metaphorically I feel the moral corruption of my generation, whispering to me that I should just fuck bitchez and leave well enough alone, that I’ll never succed as a tradionalist, that I’ve fucked enough bitchez and can’t possibly marry, it’s hypocritical of me to support traditional marriage or heteronormativity. If I believed in demons, I would say the sexual immorality we were all but taught in school by the boomers is one.

I know that other millennials would be with us if they didn’t have easy access to genz pussy on tinder, and others would be with us if they didn’t see ideas as separate from their personal lives / see the path of redemption as hypocrisy.”

The degeneracy isn’t just killing people individually, it’s killing their futures collectively.
Enabled by people who detest them as Straight, White Males.
Now, what do you offer a Straight White Male to destroy himself, since you can’t do it yourself?
The Sexual Revolution. It ruined men.
Until that problem is addressed and acknowledged and well-known, the exploitation of man’s greatest weakness, then all the crying about universal suffrage is a red herring. There isn’t a single “right-wing” man I’ve seen online that isn’t as “Sex Positive” as the most virulent SJW. That’s why we’ve lost. Bacchus isn’t Jesus, it’s Satanic.

Postmodernism, any modernism, can only be defeated by a return to tradition, but the men are too weak.
They’re all too weak now.

From thinking with their dicks, worse than any case of PMS.
PMS never killed a race.

Guardian starting to leak Gen Y betrayal data

Fence-sitting and refusing to blame Boomers though.
In full because it’s them.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/07/revealed-30-year-economic-betrayal-dragging-down-generation-y-income

They’re trying to use us to turn us onto their demos and other activism, but that activism is in the Boomer’s interests.

Exclusive new data shows how debt, unemployment and property prices have combined to stop millennials taking their share of western wealth

The full scale of the financial rout facing millennials is revealed today in exclusive new data that points to a perfect storm of factors besetting an entire generation of young adults around the world.

A combination of debt, joblessness, globalisation, demographics and rising house prices is depressing the incomes and prospects of millions of young people across the developed world, resulting in unprecedented inequality between generations.

They’re so close to calling it what it is, oppression.
Inter-generational apartheid.

A Guardian investigation into the prospects of millennials – those born between 1980 and the mid-90s, and often otherwise known as Generation Y – has found they are increasingly being cut out of the wealth generated in western societies.

Why the sudden change?
And who by, hmm?

Where 30 years ago young adults used to earn more than national averages, now in many countries they have slumped to earning as much as 20% below their average compatriot. Pensioners by comparison have seen income soar.

The jobs were taken by immigrants, weren’t they?

In seven major economies in North America and Europe, the growth in income of the average young couple and families in their 20s has lagged dramatically behind national averages over the past 30 years.

In two of these countries – the US and Italy – disposable incomes for millennials are scarcely higher in real terms than they were 30 years ago, while the rest of the population has experienced handsome gains.

It is likely to be the first time in industrialised history, save for periods of war or natural disaster, that the incomes of young adults have fallen so far when compared with the rest of society.

ugh why no please stop god kill me now rdj tony stark

Idiots. They think all their social engineering spending isn’t taking money from their own pockets.

Experts are warning that this unfair settlement will have grave implications for everything from social cohesion to family formation.

A lot of people are predicting…

Hugo Boss SS origins

go on moss popcorn

A two-week Guardian project, supported by the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust, aims to explore this predicament in depth and ask what can be done.

They won’t really do anything, they wanna help the outgroup.

Using exclusive data from the largest database of international incomes in the world, at LIS (Luxembourg Income Study): Cross-National Data Center, the investigation into the situation in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the US has also established that:

  • Prosperity has plummeted for young adults in the rich world.

  • In the US, under-30s are now poorer than retired people.

  • In the UK, pensioner disposable income has grown prodigiously – three times as fast as the income of young people.

Voting bloc.

  • Millennials have suffered real terms losses in wages in the US, Italy, France, Spain, Germany and Canada and in some countries this was underway even before the 2008 financial crisis.

“The situation is tough for young people,” said Angel Gurría, secretary general of the west’s leading thinktank, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). “They were hit hard by the Great Recession, and their labour market situation has improved only little since.

“This is a problem we must address now urgently. Kicking it down the road will hurt our children and society as a whole.”

really…

Gurría said there had been a shift since the mid-80s in poverty rates, which started to rise among younger cohorts while falling among pensioners. However, the world of barren opportunities facing today’s young people should be of concern to all age groups, he added.

The way I’ve heard it from Boomers: who cares, I’ll be dead.

Aragorn for president

“Current working-age, middle-class groups are increasingly concerned with their and their children’s job prospects. An increasing number of people think children in their country will be worse off financially than their parents,” he said.

You brought in competition. Global competition.

Using LIS’s household survey data, the Guardian examined the disposable incomes and wages of young families in eight of the 15 largest developed economies in the world. Together these countries made up 43% of the world’s GDP in 2014.

These surveys, carried out over decades, are intended to pick up what is happening on the ground in people’s homes, and are the best way of distillingdomestic realities from governmental level data.

The data accessed by the Guardian found that in the US, France, Germany, Italy and Canada the average disposable income of people in their early 20s is more than 20% below national averages.

For the first time in France, recent pensioners generated more disposable income than families headed by a person under 50. In Italy the average under-35 became poorer than average pensioners under 80. Using the most recent US data, in the midst of the downturn in 2013, average under-30s had less income than those aged 65-79. This is the first time that has happened as far back as the data goes.

At least we’re writing the history books.

Millennials interviewed by the Guardian said they felt their generation was facing far greater hurdles to establish themselves as independent adults than previous generations did.

…Londoner Tanaka Mhishi, who works in a bookshop, adds: “I definitely think in a lot of ways my parents’ generation was luckier. They had a lot more freedom to do things younger: they were able to go straight from university and move to London and afford their own flat….

High time preference people need to go away and leave us in peace

Several economists told the Guardian that policymakers should do more to even up the balance between young and old to avoid economic stagnation.

Civil unrest. At the moment we’re practically on strike (savings, pensions, family, welfare).

Paul Johnson, director of the Institute of Fiscal Studies, said he feared intergenerational inequality would fuel wider inequality in society because youngsters with rich parents would retain such an unfair advantage in the important years of early adulthood.

They’re still trying to blame rich people.

They must be forced into releasing this, God knows I’ve tried to bring this to Guardinistas attention, maybe the message sank in after all?

In our series, we will reveal that today’s young people are not delaying adulthood because they are – as the New Yorker once put it – “the most indulged young people in the history of the world”.

In Australia, millennials are being inched out of the housing market. In the UK, new figures will show the notion of a property-owning democracy has already been terminated. In the US, debt is the millennial millstone – young people are sitting on $1.3tn of student debt.

Across Europe, the issue centres more around jobs – and the lack of them. The numbers of thirtysomethings still living with their parents is stubbornly high in countries such as Italy and Spain, with grave implications for birthrates and family formation in places whose demographics are already badly skewed towards elderly people.

“We’ve never had, since the dawn of capitalism really, this situation of a population that is ageing so much and in some countries also shrinking, and we just don’t know whether we can continue growing the economy in the same way we once have,” said Prof Diane Coyle, an economist and former UK Treasury adviser.

None of these people would even pay lip service if they didn’t doubt the gravy train.
