I remember gen xers getting along with the young millennials during early years of the internet, like in the middle of the 90s, but also early 00s, where everything was new and on its seminal stage.
I used to play a lot of online games since when I was 8 or 9, with my dad, like DAoC, Ultima and later WoW, and I was in these guilds were, I remember, there were almost no generational infights; well, youngest players were infamous for being greedy and all around cocky, but nobody referred to them as "millenials" or shit like that.

So yeah, what's up with zoomers? Why everybody hates them? Boomers, gen xers, millenials, everyone shits on Zoomers and their generation.
Personally, from time to time I feel like there's something wrong with them (I mean really fucked up sometimes) but I shrug it off thinking that's just me getting old and unfamiliar with modern subcultures.
what do you think it's actually going on these strange days?

>Let me guess, it's right wing because people have TWO SINGLE RIGHTS, guns and speech, and to your leftist mind that's just incomprehensible and sounds like "far right" extremism that must must be crushed.
No you fucking retard your country is controlled by corporations and both your ludicrous parties kowtow to those corporations instead of the will of the people.

Prop 22 was written by Kamala Harris's brother-in-law and a grocery store chain just fired all it's union drivers to be replaced by cheaper "independent contractors" and Obama's transportation secretary, who works for lyft now, is going to roll out for the rest of the country. That's your "left" wing party.

I know you're retarded because you think of left and right as gangs instead various economic and social concepts.


Because they are just gangs, it was always about gang warfare. What people really care about above all else is to become a martyr for the tribe, they want their flag atop the shitheap. Sacrifices for a worthy cause, the results from the success of the tribe gaining power doesn't matter, so long as it doesn't result in another tribe taking over.


Sweet Jesus are you stupid.


What was wrong with what he said? if you can't explain why, don't reply.


on christmas eve my 17 y/o cousin just jokingly said OK BOOMER talking to my uncle. It's 2021, the line that separates internet and real life is very very thin at this point


>Because they are just gangs
Is there any point trying to explain anything to you because you're too stupid to separate ideologies and political parties who don't necessarily who follow their supposed ideology?

I guess a future where we don't own anything and the corporations only loan things to us and spy on everything we do because america's retardation problem is contagious, is where we're headed.


I remember this feeling back in like 2007 when I'd hear people say "owned" (as in "You got OWNED") and pwned in real life. It might have just been a trend around my school but nevertheless I felt like something belonging to my people was being taken away.


Most people change their views on policy based on what their preferred candidate supports. They're also less caring of wrong doing of people with the same political affiliation (tribe) as theirs, and hypercritical when it comes to the political opposites.

It's like this because of evolution, the tribes that were fairer in judgement (to other tribes) didn't survive, while the hypocritical ones did. We have also only evolved to create better technology because the ones that did were the ones that survived too. If you have a better club, you have an advantage over other tribes.

You also can't lay this blame on america, this has been a trend long before america existed. I personally think it is a inevitable trend, total control over every aspect of our lives. Putting down any resistance and dissent, it will be the last tribe standing.


the last of the real boomers were born in 1955 give or take a year, young people are so dumb they don't know what it means, then again you're talking about the same people who think cutting your cock off makes you biologically female


You are hilariously brain damaged.
>I explain leftism is capitalist
>You attempt to deboonk it by implying the USA's two political are controlled by corporations
What are you even doing? Leftism is a group of political ideologies primarily concerned with perceived social plights, not more important issues like the class divide. Leftism has nothing to do with opposition to corporate interests which you repeatedly claim. You can only say that that's because leftists are being subverted into pursuing petty social issues to prevent them from "class awakening" and you'd be nearly right, but that just demonstrates the near complete disinterest in anything economic other than managed decline welfare that leftists have and the ideology of leftism has.
>I know you're retarded because you think of left and right as gangs instead various economic and social concepts.
Your post was a big demonstration of poor reading comprehension. I hope you were just extremely drunk at the time you wrote this.


Boomer just means anyone over the age of 30 now. No one actually uses it to address the baby boomers anymore.


i’m pretty sure millennials are more hated than gen z. only millennials hates gen z. old farts thinks every one young are millennials. gen x are becoming old farts. nobody escape growing old and bitter.


it’s just a new buzzword to call out old geezers


Zoomies belive baseless youtube videos and twits as much as old people trust the tv. Same shit


why are the current young people so monumentally stupid?


>complain about protestant and politcal stuff proselytizing on cuckchan
>thread is full of /pol/ garbage
you do realize you're part of the problem, do you?


Zoomers aren't people, they're products.


zoomers are disgusting filth if i was a zoomer i would kys


You type in all lowercase and
>if i was a zoomer i would kys
>i would kill yourself
So are you saying you hate yourself, or are you mentally handicapped?


On the contrary, Gen Z are excessively praised by everyone. The media talks about how they're "saving the world", leftists praise them for being so "woke" and "diverse" and right wingers praise them for being "based" despite voting data and polling confirming they are further left than any other generation. It's difficult to find anyone with anything negative to say about them and if someone does say something remotely bad about zoomers, they will instantly get ganged up on and called a "boomer". This website is the only place I know of where Zoomers are hated so if you spend a lot of time here, it will skew your perception of what the situation actually is, but I assure you that this site is a anomaly in this regard.

Meanwhile everyone shits on millennials, including other millennials. Our generation sucks, and we acknowledge it. Even the media shits on us. I've lost track of how many headlines I've seen about how millennials don't know how to [insert basic life skill here] or how millennials are killing the X industry.

But when you combine all this praise they get from everywhere and everyone with the fact that they grew up on social media from a very young age, it's no wonder why zoomers such massive narcissists.


gen z in my experience are very knowledgeable about certain subjects (usually things popular on the internet) but are absolutely braindead when it comes to actual life experience and putting things into practice, it's all theoretical and naval gazing with them (a bit like this website in all honesty)


Is there anything this site doesn't hate?


Wizards are not a monolithic hivemind


Sure buddy


No, fuck off.


The line doesn't even exist anymore, and hasn't for years.

Most of my coworkers are zoomers and they reference memes literally everyday, jokingly (and sometimes angrily) call people "boomers" "inncels" and other meme insults, and talk about e-celebs (they really love pokimane and belle delphine).


The thing about millenials and Zoomers is millenials will be much more predominant in the future, just like Boomers and GenXrs, so it's easier to hate them, they'll become the next boomers.


I hate zoomers, I hate zoomer culture. Simple as.


i feel you


Where's the joke though. Their sense of humor is nonexistent. Spouting catchphrases is not funny.


>Spouting catchphrases is not funny.
I guess "ironically" would have been a better choice of words than "jokingly". Gen z thinks spouting memes "ironically" is hilarious. Zoomers think "irony" is the secret ingredient that makes everything instant comedy gold, and that the thicker the layer of irony (or the more "layers of irony") slathered on, the funnier it is.

No, millenials will always be dispossessed as a group, just like zoomers. You will own nothing and you'll be happy about it.


>how to lie with statistics
People grow more wealthy with age generally speaking, and then they die off.
Young people are almost always relatively broke compared to someone who has had a career and been building wealth for decades.


Millenials will not be getting 100 times as wealthy in less than 30 years.


ah those were true meme gold cabaret



Yes they were, and I knew some clueless smartass would come out of the woodwork to say exactly that. It was funny because it wasn't being done anywhere else. Fight club rules, you were supposed to keep shut the fuck up about it because it indeed wasn't funny in any other context. Being a tryhard channer outside of imageboards or god forbid an IRL meme spouter was not tolerated in the past. Now it's considered peak zoomer humour.


You jest but that shit was funny because it was back when memes were actually memes as in inside jokes meant only for certain people/boards/fandoms, rather than whatever piece of shit they run through the random "meme" generator and then shove into the social media networks.


Each new generation controls less wealth than the previous one at the same age.


>Zoomers/Boomers/Xers think Millennials are all lazy failures who are too burned out for people in their 30's/40's

Honestly, Zoomers are for a rude awakening. Part of that burnout is due to socio-economic hardships they faced very early as young adults that only continued to get worse as they got older. Many people had their entire futures crumble before their eyes. Shit ain't getting better, and signs point to even more disparity before we even reach this next decade. I imagine as Zoomers are firmly in their 30's as a generation, they won't be too far off from where Millennials are today.

I barely know zoomers because I don't interact with people often, but the few male zoomers I've interacted with irl seem depressed and have speech impediments. Also many are tall and gangly: I see very few muscly or fat zoomers. I wonder what has caused this or if it is just a strange coincidence of my personal experience. I pity the zoomers for not having had as much time to see the world before it turned into sjw trash dump. I feel no animosity towards them because they have been fucked from birth by the forces of evil and know not what they do.

Pic related is typical bullshit propaganda to incite jealousy against a made up illusion to make us hate our fellows and fuel the fires of this disgusting generational divide and conquer crap.

>Being a tryhard channer outside of imageboards or god forbid an IRL meme spouter was not tolerated in the past
this is from 2008


Fucking seriously? If you were there you'd know how the clowns were treated.



the trend ive observed is people are only knowledgeable about their own generation because as they age they become less agile, less adaptive, and more 'set in their ways.' unless people go out of their way to want to understand how another generation sees the world they risk interpreting it through the wrong lens leading to wrong conclusions. this is a core idea of cultural anthropology: 'understand a culture on its own terms and dont make judgments using the standards of one’s own culture'

i also don't understand why you bothered to write that tl; dr when your conclusion (by your own words) was you agree with me: 'Humans and their societies are not consistent and they trend is directions that are better or worse over time.' yeah, they are not consistent. i.e. not always bad. ergo, you agree with me, so, why is it 'idiotic again'? is it too 'reddit' being logically consistent about basic things? if that's the case, sign me up man.

the rest of what you wrote is your own /pol/tier opinions on anarcho-primitivism together with other philosophy bs, lightly sprinkled with insults. very nice




Saged in every field.


>Humans and their societies are not consistent and they trend is directions that are better or worse over time
Yes. And then trend now is that every generation is more dependent on technology and government. They are more dependent on media. They are more dependent on the system.
Generations can be better or worse, but in modern history each generation complains about the next because they note these changes.
>Kids these days don't know what it was like without lightbulbs. They don't even know how to set a lamp. What if the power plants go out?
>Damn kids these days, don't know how to take care of a horse. What will they do if the rockefellers ain't got no more gas no more?
>Look at the kids these days, all they do is waste away by the radio. I remember when we'd go to the concerts ourselves. I remember when we'd hear our politicians with our own ears.
>A telly-vision? Damn kids. What are they going to do with their lives if all they know about the world is what they see in this damn electric box?
>Kids these days, all they use is the phone. It ain't gonna be good for them not seein' people face to face. I remember when we knew what all our friends looked like. What if the towers go down? What'll they do then?
>Damn kids these days are sittin' at the computer 24/7. Give it too much longer and they won't even bother goin' out.
And so on. Each step reducing a persons independence and closeness with nature. In the past it would be absurd if you told someone that in the future people would not ever see most of their friends face to face, that the majority of conversations would happen over long distance, that discussions of politics would take place not in a real world forum but over electromagnetic radiation, that even work would begin to take place through the internet, people would ride cars down the streets instead of walk with their friends or family, the majority of people wouldn't know how to fish, hunt, build themselves furniture, repair issues in their homes, and more. They'd think it's utterly absurd that a man in rural Utah could freeze to death if a powerplant in Nevada turned off, that he could starve if a shipment of grain from China didn't make it, that he could dehydrate and perish if a water plant 400 miles away broke down, that he could be stranded in his own home if his car and phone went out, that he could lose his livelihood if a megacorporation in another state went bankrupt.

You can't rationalize that there hasn't been a trend of increasing dependence on factors that are totally outside of individual humans control. You can say "Oh! Many things are out of people's control. The weather, earthquakes, eruptions" but that is ignoring the fact that so much more is now out of people's hands, or at least that so many more do not know how to take the matters into their own hands. Preceding generations do have a legitimate complaint over subsequent ones. In the industrial era, people are growing more and more dependent on things that are outside their control. This is noticed by the generation before them, and it is complained about, just as the generation before noticed the change. So,
>'Humans and their societies are not consistent and they trend is directions that are better or worse over time.' yeah, they are not consistent.
I said that there is nothing that by nature makes a generation worse than the one before it, but that the continued environmental changes that cause reduced independence are a legitimate source complaint for each generation. It is a factor that is changing at a growing rate in a constant direction.

>'understand a culture on its own terms and dont make judgments using the standards of one’s own culture'

That's leftist-tier garbage. It is never possible to judge something outside of your own standard unless you do not judge. If you create another standard to judge by then it is merely through another entirely arbitrary standard. What we can look at is the fact that each generation can be different based on the one variable that really is changing with each generation, technological development and access. That is the single variable that is changing in a constant direction for all people all over the world, and so we can say that there is an environmental difference between generations, and we can at the least understand that these generations are reliant on new technologies, and that this dependence is a source of complaint for each generation.


Rorschach and weev were considered leaderfags back then
