Generation “We” Will Make Generation “Me” Seem Altruistic

Just in case you think the world will finally be saved once all the Boomers are pushing up daisies, I have bad news for you: they spawned. The Boomers had kids who call themselves, without irony, “Generation We”.

Here’s their video:


Generation WE: The Movement Begins… from Generation We on Vimeo.

Tiresome, self-congratulatory and preening….wow, they’re so NOT like mom and dad.

A friend told me that this group of young people, who have been extensively focus-grouped and screened, are all about community, environment, family, yada, yada, yada. And I asked her, “What group of 18 year olds don’t spout empty platitudes?” I mean really. That’s what youth is all about–high ideals before you give half your paycheck to people who don’t work. Things tend to change once taxes are paid.

Generation We needs to put a cork in it. Accomplish something and then we’ll talk.
