Good post that at least contains an element of nuance. Some of the 'back in my day' contributions didn't really capture that. It's not all about lauding your own situation over others. I can both appreciate that I had it tough growing up, but also see that in some regards it's now easier and in others it's harder. That's just how it is.

Many of them haven't got a bloody clue regarding inflation and how much it's helped them financially. Clueless, and i mean that nicely

The end of Bretton-Woods has a lot to answer for though and the inflation it (inherently) brought.

Really liked the bit where he goes to the posh people's dating agency for the privately educated. Almost encourages selective breeding, bordering on eugenics. Might try the app myself, might have to tell a few porkies though.

Makes me laugh that a dating app for the middle classes is suggested as being better somehow!!

The middle class are quite possibly the most inbred class of all historically!!

 


Don't waste your time with jealousy. Sometimes your ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long. But in the end it's only with yourself!!

I've have some sympathy for this view.....I regard the answer as mixed.

Firstly I'd say that in general older generations were better people who were more loyal to the country and what it means. We had lower crime and we had higher social cohesion even though the class system was less disguised.

Those generations had it harder in the sense of the technology of modern times wasn't there. A lot of today's comforts and conveniences are the result of technological leaps forward rather than any social or political refinements.

People died earlier and in more pain and if you were poor it was s***e....and more s***e than today because technology wasn't there to dull the boredom.

But as said....if you had a bit of money as a 'baby boomer' you benefited from a generational situation that gave you far cheaper housing both public and private, helped from the reconstruction of the Marshall plan....that generation used that ladder and its leaders pulled the ladder up.

Post war generations also benefited from a population size that placed far less strain on public infrastructure.

Today's generation have all the technology improvements and live lives that are more comfortable than that of kings of decades ago......However they are having to exist in a time where the housing ladder has been pulled up for many of them and due to population increases and housing inaction costs and prices are absurd.

Today's average couple face a load of debt and a state that increasingly regards them as fodder both economically and socially. Both man and woman are expected to work just to remain above water....The days of the working man bringing home his wages for the wife to housekeep are far less common and for many that has lead to far more stressful lives.

Anyway.....I've bleeding depressed myself....I'm going to look in the cupboard for a jam doughnut.

Genuinely agree with a lot of this too. As with pretty much anything I post itís largely tongue in cheek/to wind up you miserable b*stards

Because your generation are a bunch of spoilt, unimaginative, gender-confused, effete, Corbyn-loving Remainers, pussies and benders.

There are many reasons to be bud.
Forewarned is forearmed.

Yes, I have come around to that view. We all hold bias, but TUX doesn't seem to get overly drawn into the left and the right of it all. Instead realising that we're all getting played by taking these stances while others laugh at us and make bank. We buy the distractions all too readily.
