    As a millennial, the only humans I hate are the rich. The rest of you are cool, even if some of you are dumb as rocks.

      Millenial here, I don’t hate the rich, I hate the rich who has enough money to treat earning money as just a highscore challange.

        I think when most people say “the rich” it’s shorthand for super rich like the people you’re talking about.

            I think you can be a “trust fund baby” and still only have like millions or 10s of millions. Which is enough to squander in your lifetime…. I can be jealous of people in that situation and not hate. It’s the billionaires with more money than their families could use in 5 generations and who are still accumulating more. Those people can get guillotined.

      Yeah but a lot of non rich people supported policies and individuals who were just fine with a system that allowed for the Uber rich goofs to exist.

        And pretty much an equal amount actively fought against those policies, but were not politically effective in doing so as a result of complex historical and political factors. The Baby Boomers were and are complicated, just as everyone is, and it’s kind of incorrect to treat them monolithically because as a generational cohort, the Boomers were ludicrously massive. So much so that there can actually be considered two dominant sub-cohorts within that generation. Early boomers protested Vietnam and made huge contributions to American racial, gender, reproductive, and sexual rights. Late generation Baby Boomers, sometimes referred to as “Generation Jones” grew up in an era of political malaise, and lived through the economic recession of the 1970s, Watergate, the Iranian hostage crisis, and a bunch of other things that helped to shape their more generally conservative political identities.

        That’s what I meant by some being dumb as rocks. They face a lot of propaganda and algorithms on the daily and it’s probably real hard for them to see through.

        A lot of them were essentially tricked into supporting things against their interests by a powerful media machine.

        As they say never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.

        It’s hard to draw a line on who’s to blame. But I’d say the evil people tricking stupid people are much worse.

        I think these go into OP’s “dumb as rocks” category.

      That’s a good way to be. I try to do this, but it’s hard not to hold people’s stupidity against them when they plaster it all over the back of their car.

        Yes. I totally agree, I just try to remember that they’re constantly being bombarded with propaganda and that it takes a lot of mental gymnastics to keep supporting their daddy’s favorite football team political party.
