10 Reasons Why Some People Harbor Resentment Towards Boomers

Baby Boomers, born after WWII, shaped society and the economy. However, some believe they left younger generations with difficult issues.

#1: Impact on Society and Economy

It's kind of a tradition to blame the past generation. Boomers are upset with their parents, and their parents are upset with theirs.

#2: The Circle of Blame

While blaming the boomers might be an easy option, some believe that there’s a bigger game at play-divide and conquer.

#3: Divide-and-Conquer Tactics

Younger people seem to think that Baby Boomers might have had work, houses, and really nice lawns back in the day.

#4: The Grass is Greener Syndrome

After World War II, the Baby Boomers got the best break of their lives. The civilized world was in shambles, but they got to play with the new toys. 

#5: The Fallout of Success

Some had great chances, some had student loans, and some felt the weight of the world on their shoulders, just like millennials and Gen Z do today.

#6: Grouped Together

Boomer gets a lot of criticism for how he acts and how he thinks. Their way of working and social norms seem very different from those of younger people.

#7: The Boomer Attitude

Blaming is sometimes just a way to get out of trouble. It's like saying the weather made your plans fall through instead of admitting you forgot to bring an umbrella.

#8: Scapegoating

Politics can be a battlefield, and Baby Boomers have been criticized for their political views. Some people don't like them because they back certain plans.

#9: Political Choices

Boomers are made fun of because they have trouble with technology. Tech problems don't just happen to people of a certain age, though.
