Why shouldn't they be? Generations before them made them this way.
Xers didn't wreck schools, families and other institutions. Other people did, barely admit that there is a wrong, let alone that they
did it, or fixing it.
That's the point of the GD Theory.
Individuals can "overcome" their "upbringing". Only exceptional individuals do so, though.
Whole generations are aggregates of individuals, and since far more of those individuals don't "get over their upbringing", those people are what "represent" their generation.
Now, just because Xers CAN blame Boomers, does that make Xers "blameless"? No.
As far as I can see, practically all ideologues are hypocrites - Socialists who have millions in their bank account, ecologists with private jets, Christians who aren't very Christian, and fascists who want to let others do the fight. How are people supposed to get values from them? Anyone younger who believes the Boomers is either very naive or very disturbed.
Ideology = Hypocrisy (by definition)
So, that makes everyone a hypocrite (as everyone has an ideology).
Apparently, hypocrites are not to be sources of values.
Therefore, where SHOULD values come from?
The Boomer generation might end up as the most-hated generation in history, and with justification. Better repent while you can.
It'll be the most hated, over the last "boomer-like" generation, only because there are more "xer-like" people on the planet than ever before.
Individuals can't "repent" for the sins of their "upbringing encumbered" generational brethren (or anyone else for that matter).
BUT,.. the wielder of the sword is the actual agent of destruction, and not the abusive parent of the swordsman.
