Nailing the boomers

The Anchoress finds that Chesterton nailed it on the boomers long before they were born.

The aged younger generation never knew why it knocked at the door; and the truth is that it only knocked at the door because it was shut. It had nothing to say; it had no message; it had no convictions to impart to anybody…. for he never had any conviction except that he was young, and that is not a conviction that strengthens with years.”

Very insightful! I just posted some quick thoughts on boomer retirement at my blog, and ran across yours after a quick search. I would be so grateful if you'd join the fray.

Feel free to link to your blog and the one you quoted at BravoBox.
