The Kurgan explains to the younger generations why Generation X is particularly ill-suited for leadership in the various coming crises now that the Boomer-built Clown World is inevitably collapsing:
So here’s the real history. Pay attention because this will help you, a lot, if you plan to be a change for the better.
Boomers infected EVERYTHING. Let me try to succinctly explain what that means.
Firstly, they spent literally all their time thinking and saying and acting as if they were the best thing ever, ever. Better than God, never mind sliced bread. They are STILL doing it. They will do that until they die.
Secondly, what Bill and George said about being the first unwanted generation is true. Boomers spent the rest of their energy on constantly telling Xers they were just not good enough. Not smart enough, not hard working enough, etc., etc., while at the same time actively shutting down all the routes to power and the easy life they had. And burning bridges behind themselves. While doing that, they also continually spouted in your ear how it was even easier for you now that they had done it. And all you had to do was buy into this new brand they had created (which was a dumb-ass rat trap designed to make sure you couldn’t get access to the things they had).
This is not exaggeration or hyperbole. It’s literally what happened. Imagine growing up with that.
Now imagine it being like that for all of your adult life, because the Boomers are only dying off now and most Xers are now in their 40s and 50s. And now understand what the landscape before us is like and where we are starting from....
When you say we did not lead, you have no idea what you’re talking about. None. If you can see anything at all past the wasteland created by the Boomers, if you realise BRAWNDO is bullshit at all, it’s because some Gen Xers cracked the Boomer facade, and continue to do so. The Boomers were both the victims and the perpetrators of the most massive psyops ever done on the planet. Any cracks in that construct you can see are because some Gen Xer with balls of steel hammered at the facade until it dented. Until it cracked. Gen Xers are, metaphorically speaking, the guys who help Truman wake up.
That’s the history. Now listen up, because we’re not done. There are STILL not enough of us to take over and change shit. And there are too few of you Millennials that aren’t brain-dead fucking zombies. But we gave you and the Zyklons a chance.
To be fair, Boomers screwed over Millennials too, it's just that they didn't know things had been any different in the past. In 2005, just as the last Generation Xers were graduating from college, the Boomers passed the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act in order to prevent the younger generations from being able to discharge their student loan debt in bankruptcy.
It's appalling to see how many women of my generation never married or had children because they were aggressively indoctrinated by every single adult in their lives to a) get a university degree and b) get a good job instead of a) getting married and b) having children. It's no wonder that many of those women who were strong enough to shake off the indoctrination have gone on to have 4+ kids and even to homeschool them despite the open disapproval of their parents.
Unfortunately, there aren't enough of us and we're too distrusting and psychologically inclined toward individual self-defense to be suited for leadership. Think of it this way; we held Helm's Deep long enough to give the Riders of Rohan time to show up. Perhaps we should have done more, but a fighting withdrawal was all we could manage.
The Boomer orcs have harrowed the Shire of the West and they will leave it literally bankrupt and burning. But remember, the West was built from less.
