Boomers and Bust

Francis Hackett discusses what the richest, most privileged (also most spoiled and over-indulged) generation in history did with the golden opportunity it was handed:
We trashed it.
We trashed it because we did not value it. We trashed it because we knew no history, so we thought our new freedoms were the natural order of things. It was as though we decided that the freedom and lack of worry that we had inherited was too good for our children, and we pulled up the ladder we had climbed.
