So you hate your parents,well good for you. As a "boomer" I cunningly engineered the defeat of fascism fifteen years before my conception I invented the National Health service ten years before my conception to deliberately ensure that I grew up healthy rather than dying at five. Whilst I was growing up I secured a better education than my parents had (and passed that on to my children). I now cannot afford to retire because my children don't have the opportunities I had and I have to continue to support them. Is that because I ruined the planet? Or is it because the economic and political ruling classes carried on as they always have, enriching themselves at the expense of the rest of us. If you really think that the ills of today can be blamed on one generation without regard to the prevailing governance of the western world (because your dismissal of that generation cannot apply to the rest of the world's people who just struggled anyway) you have been conned. We did not engineer the world in which we grew up (in the West) and we did not conspire to keep our children in poverty.
