Baby Boomers caused great harm

A typical Millennial criticism of the Boomer legacy was published in the National Post this spring. Sabrina Maddeaux begins a defense of her cohort by first recalling the many waves of invaders who sacked Rome over a millennia, and then shifting her focus tightly on the “bloated, all-consuming generation” born in the “devil-spawning era between 1946 and 1964,” who’ve described her peers as spoiled, feckless, lazy, shallow and entitled.
