Ok boomer.

About the current viral inter-generational conflict:

The problem is that most of the surviving boomers think the newer generations are lazy and entitled for complaining about stuff that came easy to them, but
1. They don't know the realities of the modern world, how capitalism has fucked us over so that everything that was easy for them is extremely difficult and stressful for us.
2. They don't listen when we try to tell them this, to the point that we've given up and just go "Ok boomer," because we don't have the energy to put up with their sealioning anymore. (Sealioning, BTW, is the term for "asking questions you already know the answers to, just to waste someone's time and piss them off.")

Obviously, if you're one of the boomers who already knows these things and accepts them because you've experienced poverty recently enough, or have the self awareness or humility to believe people when they talk about their experiences, then this isn't about you.
