I was born in '71.
I have in the past been critical of the boomers. Certainly there were visionaries like Rand and Welch that they could have tuned into if they were not riding the American glory wave. That aside, It is the education system to blame and it truthfully would have been hard to see coming given the world events (Wars) of the time and the introduction of the Prussian model of eduction and pledge of allegiance. Now that there are some really good works on that particular history and methodology (John Taylor Gatto and Schoolsuckspodcast), and that everyone has access to, the excuse for ignorance is removed.
Now if we could just stop watching the games / enriching a parasite class and start living our own lives.
