    Could anyone really be more self-absorbed than the baby boomers?

    I think Gen. Y is self-absorbed, but I think Gen. X was too. The endemic narcissism our society has might have really started taking off in the 70s, actually. It was certainly already in bloom in the 80s.
    Right. BY THE BABY BOOMERS.

    I'm just saying that baby boomers still seem pretty narcissistic...they're the ones who have sped up things like convenience living, they drive SUVs...part of what Gen X were rebelling against is what they saw as the materialism and self-absorption of the boomers (completely contrary to what Angell suggested...it seems to me he's thinking of the Great Generation being more traditional and selfless, but that could just be an American thing). Even as they age, the boomers don't want to fucking die. It's like they're planning to live forever so they can be a financial burden on the smaller number of people in younger generations working now.

    No offense, but I'm not a fan. That doesn't mean I don't like individual people from the boomer generation, though. My mom is a baby boomer. Also they did some cool stuff...like the oldest of the boomers came of age in the 60's, and I like the both the Mod and Hippie movements. New Wave from the early 80's also rocks, so I'm not hatin'.

    Oh, I'd also like to add that they're the ones who made it "normal" to lock your elderly parents in a nursing home and have your kids raised by daycare, so that's why I don't feel so bad complaining about their massive plots for eternal youth.

    Also, they made it mainstream to give your kids Things instead of Love, which is apparently makes Gen Y such spoiled little monsters, amirite?

    The catalysts are seldom the pinnacle.

    I'm no fan of the that cultural wave myself, but I still don't think it was as self-absorbed as what we've got now. Back then they had this cognitively dissonant combination of wanting to be communal, and yet telling everyone to "do their own thing", and various other plays on that contradiction. At this point, the average young American has no such cognitive dissonance. It's clearly and solely about getting it your own way.

    But as I said earlier, they are also the ones that kicked-off the obsession with getting kids to have high self-esteem.
