    Are Baby Boomers A 'Generation Of Sociopaths'? | The Huffington Post

    A controversial new book argues boomers are beset with egotism, impulsivity and a shocking lack of empathy -- and they're leaving the world a worse place.

    I usually hate intergenerational harrumphing, but I'll make an exception for boomers, considering they're the primary offenders.

    I'm not going to make blanket statements one way or another. I'll just say I'm often staggered by people who have no ability to understand the world beyond their own experiences, and the vast majority of them are boomers.

    Maybe you should tweet about it instead. And get the SIKids kid to weigh in, too.

    Look at it this way. I'm a lot less irritated by the intellectually incurious than I am by people who are staggered by the intellectually incurious. Live and let live.

    Unless that led to a vote for Donald Trump. Then fuck 'em.

    Some of my favorite people are Boomers, but taken as a whole they are the absolute worst.

    Seriously, the worst.

    I mostly blame boomers for giving birth to, raising and enabling succeeding generations of whining, insufferable, entitled dweebs who expect everything to be handed to them. Except my kids, of course.

    You really are working hard at making that a thing, aren't you?

    Once I saw the author described as "writer and venture capitalist," I stopped reading.

    We are a species of sociopaths and boomers got handed some powerful tools

    You are hardly working at not making Jif.

    Your next post on this board that isn't pure Jif will be your first.
