Can Boomers Step Out of the Greatest Generation’s Historical Shadow
Posted Sep 28 2010 12:17pm
Really interesting article in The Atlantic titled The Least We Can Do - written by baby boomer Michael Kinsley.
Here is the intro:
Self-absorbed, self-indulged, and self-loathing, the Baby Boom generation at last has the chance to step out of the so-called Greatest Generation’s historical shadow. Boomers may not have the opportunity to save the world, as their predecessors did, but they can still redeem themselves by saving the American economy from the fiscal mess that they, and their fathers and mothers, are leaving behind.
It is a super well written and believe it or not, quite objective.
