Did you wipe 2008 from your memory? People lost jobs, houses foreclosed, the thing about how the current generation is never going to be as wealthy as our parents? We've also talked about the burgeoning environmental crisis. These are not new ground in this very thread. But clearly at some point we need to realise that there's no point trying to convince obstinate boomers. Your time is ending anyway. I agree that the younger generations need to do more, and the first step is to stop wasting time on boomers.
