Don’t worry, in another forty or fifty years, all the Baby Boomers and “The Greatest Generation” will be gone. Meanwhile, this, from a new interview with Bill Clinton:
I mean, all of this “the greatest generation is World War II?” — it just happens that they’re the most horrible parents in human history, right?
If all of us baby boomers were so bad, then our parents were terrible; they failed. And if we were so bad, how come our kids are so great? We were hellaciously good parents.
I think it’s phony as a $3 bill. I think they had a chance to win World War II and it was clear. These are much more complex things [now]. We have no idea if the World War II generation would have made the decisions they should make on climate change if they thought doing so would bring an end to their economic prosperity.
