I think that as the Boomers fade away, they will attempt one last grasp at controlling and crafting their legacy in their twilight years, all at the expense of the future generations. This could very well go wrong, as the leftist boomers. Ow are revealing.
The quote from The Fourth Turning above illustrates the hard choice GenX will make, so long as the boomers pay their price. I don’t mind hardship at the end of their long selfish life for boomers, as long as the generations behind me get a chance to grow up in a wholesome world again.
