What a great display of youthful arrogance in the NZ parliament. What saddens me is the unanimous cheering on of this quip.

This article, seemingly written in response to this, sums it up nicely - with age comes experience, the older generations can provide insight, they've likely already had a similar, if not the exact same, experience. Likewise, the youth, relatively unscathed by past events and experiences, can come up with new and fresh solutions and ideas.
We can all learn from each other; co-operation of generations, not mutual dismissal, is the way to the promised land. Tuck away your ego into your back pocket, get rid of your narcissism and listen to each other.

As a side note, remember the "30-year-old boomer" meme? The meaning of that was to mock those exact people who hated the elder generations and were themselves terrified of aging.

The intellectually weak that use that term are the same that want to limit speech and thought.

Enough said.

I'm a millennial but shave with a DE razor, brush and bowl. So I got more boomer points than all the boomers here put together.

in the current information flood it is a good practice to selectively filter out bullshit.
