How the Boomers screwed The West (part 3)

Part 3 in a mostly video analysis of how the Baby Boomers screwed the West. Part 1 here, and Part 2, here.  The purpose of this series is not to denigrate the Baby Boomers but to show what they got wrong, and why they got it wrong in the hope that future generations do not fall into the same trap.  It's like trying to avoid the inevitable but if we can reduce the frequency of the erroneous behaviors that lead to societal faltering, then we can still consider that a win.

To preface, Salon is a liberal organization they come at this with a liberal slant.  The author of the book A Generation of Sociopaths: How the Baby Boomers Betrayed America is also clearly a liberal.  Heck he even looks like Al Franken.  And there is plenty to critique in his book, but Bruce Cannon Gibney also gets a lot right.  He's not a Boomer himself, having been born in 1976.  I myself am also a Gen Xer and I have  a lot of respect for the generation prior to the Boomers, and for many Boomers for that matter.  I just don't want to see their mistakes repeated, even though it may be too late - one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch they say.  It seems to paraphrase Ronald Reagan , we're always one generation away from the extinction of freedom, as well as other important qualities in a society.
