The 60s Baby Boomers: We Filmed Our Own Epitaph -- "We Blew It"


Andrew Klaven in €˜Willpower’ and the Suckiest Generation notes "If only the Baby Boomers — could die without taking me with them. I'€™d sure as hell like to be around to see them go.

They ruined the culture of this country, threw away the untold riches bequeathed to them, betrayed and undermined centuries of wisdom, spread the use of drugs, legitimized divorce and abortion, and even managed to screw up the civil rights movement that might otherwise have been their signal achievement. On the other hand, they did give us pre-faded jeans, so I guess that's something.
He's onto something that is made more explicit by comment to an item on Jalopnik's Peter Fonda's Easy Rider Harley Destroyed By Fire
Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Grizzly fucking Adams and pretty much the entire goddamned Baby Boom Generation can go take a flying fuck at a rolling donut, okay? Take your Hell's Angels, your Rolling Stones, your gaudy incompetent motorcycles, and whatever rusty piss pot you boiled up "Orange County Choppers" in and throw them on the fire too. Burn it all down. Throw Steve McQueen's dick on there while you're at it.
My generation had to grow up under the sanctimonious, egocentric, wrong-headed tutelage of the Boomers telling us they saved the fucking human race by making homemade hats out of beer cans and store bought yarn, taking drugs and groping each other in muddy fields. Now everybody was free because of them, and they'd never let you forget it. To me, the end of that movie? One ignorant self absorbed prick shooting another ignorant self absorbed prick in the face.
