Every generation has always wanted to see their children do better and the "greatest generation" was the first able to do that in such a big way. For the first time, kids could be free to play instead of work, and their parents could send them to college, etc. So many pieces of new legislation to protect children and treat them as important. THAT was the "greatest generation". It was a massive mistake. Such "mindless prudish droning" was their attempts to instill some level of decency, respect and personal responsibility into their kids, who now had "rights".
The damage these "baby boomers" have done is evident and clear for all to see. No single generation has done more harm to this country and its people than these.
