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?

 No.260416

Because the internet used to be a set of relatively close-knit communities, but once the Zoomers who grew up on smartphones entered their teenage years they invaded the internet wholesale, and now every single young normalfaggot is spending most of their time on the internet, polluting and corrupting it.

When I was I kid most people absolutely hated knowing a kid was playing with them. If you got on the mic you were instantly a “squeaker” and would be shit on. Though I understand why, it does feel weird being an adult now and hearing some ten year old on the mic.

As for your zoomer shit, that’s just cause 4chan/Reddit/Twitter basically owns the entire internet now, and so all their vile memes about zoomer and boomers and shit are just everywhere.

yes but you had to be really young to be shitted on for that, like 8-14. Once you hit puberty and voice got deeper nobody gave a fuck if you were 15, 16 or 20, unless you blatantly acted like a stupid brat of course. At least this was my personal experience.
If you were 11 in community full of 25+ year old males, I can understand you had an hard time using the voice chat to communicate with them - or any other third party software for that matters

The most recent generation really is worse than all generations that have ever preceeded them that we know of.
It's because of social media primarily. This new generation bases their entire belief system and behaviours on internet points. 95% of humans through all time obviously based their beliefs and behaviours on social approval, but with modern tech consensus is constructed not based around observable facts but by a combination of memes, mass media, and malicious corporate algorithms.
Gen-Z is conditioned to trust everything that mass media says even if it flies against all personal observations, say whatever they can to get the most likes, and believe "witty" memes over facts. They are a people whose entire culture was created by AI algorithms designed to turn them into perfect slaves that believe they are rebels and freedom fighters.

Honestly, thats for the better, i know a lot of those people were just assholes but theres also the factor of not wanting to groom you into a place were you should not even be in the first place. adults should not be too nice welcoming kids into their groups, just look at discord pedos, just shuuing the kid away is the most sensible thing to do if you are not a creeper.

>>260415
Every generation is the worst ever until the next one comes along. Gen x probably had the best teenage and yound adult culture though, millenials and zoomers are constantly borrowing nostalgia from them.

generation conflict is just another way to dillute class conflict, same as race, sexuality and gender, all of those minor idpols are getting promoted so theres never really a larger conflict that aglomerates all of the underclass. The more segregated the lower classes become the better for the ruling class. Back then those psyops were only neccessary in the lower classes but now its happening on the middle classes.

Black people had their gang warfares and the mexicns vs niggas, vs whatever but now there is a manage decline that involves the middle class so it has become necessary to segregate them too so they become disenfranchized and unable to unite for a common interest, so enter the zoomer vs boomer vs millenial, the man vs succubus vs tranny and the gay vs straight vs bisexual and all that stupid garbage that means nothing in reality and won't ever improve anyone's lives

Those same people that used to have to brainwash normies with pamphlets on the sidewalk and the subway or paying adspace on tv now do it for free on internet spaces were they never belonged before the bas was lowered as it is today.

same media conglomerates as always, if people are talking about le zoomer and le boomer and le millenial is because many ad agencies and news sites already propagated those concepts. I don't think i even need to link a particular one, you can google and find a million of those propaganda pieces about generation comparisons.

Some years ago there were like a million think pieces all over the media about millenials being the worst ever, pretty much all of the stereotypes were propagated by those. Very short ago the "ok boomer" shit went viral and every internet site was talking about that shit and spreading it further. 4chan is full of shillbots with that same purpose , who would open threads like "why do more young men are refusing to work, according to this study millenials are generation cristal" . Older millenials are now like 40 so they are moving on and targeting zoomers now since zoomers are already young adults.

>>260446
because it is much, much bigger, people can have same class issues even if they are from different religions, ethnicities and sexualities, imagine all those people could come together in dialogue about it and find common ground and act politically based on it disregarding minor differences. That is something that could have real world implications and bring about reforms for the system, but people arguing over petty idpol shit will not.
Right now the middle classes are on a difficult spot, so its when those divisions come in and fuck with the narrative, most modern woke sjw shit is stuff the middle classes give a shit about but they are missing the forest for the thress minding about trivial sex bullshit and blacks in cartoons while their wages stagnate.

As an example, Jeff Bezos apparently loves diversity hires because the idpol shit means employees have are less likely to unionize and get to getter to bargain for better wages. Division on the underclass favors stability for the status quo.

 No.260455

I've said this before, but it's because of the simple fact that whether those "in power" favor people of a certain race or sex they ultimately favor themselves the most.
There are real differences between different groups. Men and succubi are not the same, they have differences, equalities, and inequalities. The same can be said for cultures, religions, races, and every trait no matter how small. Rejecting that there are identities and that identities can have an impact is retarded, but the most important thing isn't identity but instead the state of being ruled or ruling.

As an example, imagine a pre-Civil War America. It is easy to see that whites held a privileged position in relation to blacks, and it is easy to see that they had more economic and political power as a group or "identity" than blacks. However, while groups and identities are real, individuals are not their identities. Any individual white person was more or less at the whim of the rich aristocracy in the same way that any black person was. If the rich aristocratic whites and jews decided to take away some or all of the privileges that "white people" held at the time, they could and they would, and whites would be just as helpless to stop it as blacks.
Whites pre-Civil war were merely allowed certain privileges by the ruling class because the ruling class found it convenient. As you will notice, once the ruling class no longer found it convenient for whites to "be privileged" they took those privileges away.

Whether the ruling class is White, Jewish, Asian, Black, Male, Female, Christian, Muslim, whatever, the people that they rule are all equally at their mercy. The ruling class allows privileges based on what they find convenient. In the modern day, I assert that whites are underprivileged because it is convenient for the purposes of attacking the last remaining major ethnic group in the west which still has a large middle class and land ownership.
All of this isn't to say that the ruling class never awards privileges for ideological reasons, Hitler was an example of a ruling power that awarded whites privileges and attacked jews not merely because it was convenient but because of his ideological zeal. In this case, as with any other, it isn't that "whites" in general oppressed jews, it is that the ruling powers of Nazi Germany decided to redistribute privileges among its subjects.

To sum it up: Ultimately the only hierarchy that matters is the ruler and the ruled. This is typically known as "class" or Proletariat and Bourgeoise, the poor and the "rich". The rulers have rights, the poor have privileges. Races might be privileged or underprivileged, but only the rulers have rights and power over the system.

is a very effective illusion to convince a bunch of poor or middle class whites that they have more in common with a white billionaire than with a poor or middle class mulatto neighbor when in reality is the other way around. White identitarians play right into it, at the end of the day they are doing the same job as the sjws in further segmenting and atomizing the lower classes.

 No.260457

It's also an unwinnable game. I know you'll strongly disagree but refusing to resist social justice in the interest of "unity" will just allow social justice to complete its objective of annihilating cultures, races, and identities that are inconvenient for the rich and then separating what remains into segregated interest groups of people who will fight each other over who is more or less privileged.

 No.260459

>>260457
social justice is not there to anhilite any divides but to accentuate them. Look at the racism stuff, most is stuff that was already considered to be water under the bridge in the 90s, current year racism is propped up by social justice because increasing that divide is useful right now. If you really look into sjw logic they are even going as far as advocting for total cultural segregation based on race, they want and enviroment were everone is constantly walking on eggshells with people not their own race, they want the tension.

a white person doesn't have to give up his culture or anything, just realize maybe they do have more in common with the the next door mulatto that works the same shit factory job as him rather than a billionaire that only larps to give a shit about his particular idpol. you and me could have different religions or sexual proclivities and nothing will change that, but still both would be fucked just the same by the system.

 No.260460

>>260459
I suppose we do agree on the topic then. I actually meant exactly what you just said.
To clarify, I mean social justice is creating greater divides intentionally and the end result is for there to be many many separate groups of people divided by intersectionality in literally every single identity a person could have. However, there are things, such as traditional western philosophy that have no use except as a boogeyman and their very existence can be nothing other than a threat. Because of that, social justice will eliminate it along with any of the other things that truly cannot be reconciled with the end goals of the ruling class.
> just realize maybe they do have more in common with the the next door mulatto that works the same shit factory job as him rather than a billionaire that only larps to give a shit about his particular idpol.
I definitely agree here. It's sad though, because middle class whites wake up with the bills piling up, the foreclosure on their door, their children addicted to heroin, their business closed due to Covid, their banks empty with nothing to pass on to their children, and yet, when they turn on the news, what do they see?
Those people who have gone through the same thing, people of color and the poor calling them evil, colonizers, calling for them to give their houses away for equality, and calling for them to pay reparations for slavery. They have no choice in the matter. Social justice really succeeded in making it impossible for people of color, whites, men and succubi to put aside their differences for something that would help them all.

It's the same consumer-minded shit that plagues everything else in modern times.
You're conditioned to form an opinion by making a gross generalization and throwing out any nuance. If you can't do that, then you need to look for the most bite-sized prepackaged generalization about a topic and make that your opinion. Everything is also broken down into a simple two-sided fight. You use your shitty opinion to figure out which side of the fight you're on. Now you're part of a demographic that can be easily manipulated.

Norps today believe that the primary hierarchy of power is based on identity, for example whites/men are privileged and so must be the group that controls the rest. In reality, whether the privileges are real or imagined the power is ultimately in the hands of the ruling class alone.

Zoomers to me honestly almost don't exist. I barely see them, I can probably count on my fingers how many times I interacted with them and I barely notice them. Sometimes I wonder where they're all hiding.
But as for hating them or having something against them? No. I don't know enough about them besides these obviously forced, and malacious, internet narratives that constantly push for more and more division among people. Anyhow, the poor fuckers came in to this world at a worse time than me, I suspect.
Who I do know quite a bit about, however, are my own "kin" and I find it much easier to despise millenials because I KNOW who they are, where they came from and most importantly and above all else: Who they COULD have been.
Zoomers though man… they're in this shit deep. They never got to experience the world "before." Maybe they'll get lucky and have a benevolent AI take over during their lifetimes and plug them in to a VR paradise where their waifus will love them evermore.

Good posts, thanks for sharing your thoughts.
While on the topic of class, perhaps you can entertain a thought I've been having as of late in regards to the elites?
I've been thinking how they are viewed as being inherently evil. Like cancers on humanity, feeding off our life force until they bloat and annihilate their host. But is this true? We judge them from our own flawed and narrow-sighted perspectives, while they have a full view of the chessboard. What if they - through possible means such as generational eugenics and the hoarding and passing on of deep knowledge down through their bloodlines over the ages - have made them in some way transcend the human condition and are working towards a goal that mere normalfaggots can not hope to understand?
Because you know, I've been thinking about this a lot lately. It's the norm in "circles" such as ours to dismiss the elites as greedy, sociopathical, "satanic," pure evil etc etc and that would be very convenient for me as well.. Sometimes I have my doubts though. Because your average person is just such shit guys… such pure, uncaring, greedy shit. I understand that this thought is very likely false, but it's good to think critically and explore both sides of the coin right?

If I reply to this post then it will take a long time and it will be a very long post because the question itself can only be addressed with a complex answer. In general, I understand one of your implications is that calling the "elites" evil(and perhaps the primary source of all societal ills) could be a way of creating an easily defined enemy for oneself out of convenience. Either because one doesn't want to deal with a million random obscure and difficult to define problems, or because they are looking for someone or something to blame for personal reasons.
The fact is that even if the "elites" truly are unequivocally evil there will still be an immense amount of other very serious problems such as the industrial system or exponential growth economics, and if they are not evil but instead "good" or "neutral" for whatever reason(like incomprehensible eldritch lore as your example) it remains clear that they both permit and partake in acts unequivocally evil from our moral system. For example, many of the "elites" were found to be purchasing from child sex trafficking groups such as NXIVM and recorded admitting to raping children. If those instances were just rogues, why then were the middlemen in the operation the only people that were punished? Why didn't the non-rogue moralistic "elites" attempt to punish them? If whatever incomprehensible eldritch "moral system" these people have makes them permissive of just the evil acts that media is okay with admitting they committed, it's safe to say that those morals are evil no matter what their end goal is.

This is in no way comprehensive at all and I admit there are many logic gaps but this is a quick reply.
Relevant but I'm not sure how to fit it in: I don't think the "elites" are a hive mind. It's probably certain that there are power blocs although there's no way to be sure or if so who's in each. For example, I am sure single-generation elites such as Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos are distinctly different from multi-generational like the Rothschilds and such. However, they are all clearly moving in the same direction and "on the same side" for now at least.

 No.260527

This implies that there is not a consistent difference between the environments from generation to generation. Whether you like it or not, GenZ is a generation that grew up raised largely by electronic devices with instant gratification and social standing measured in an accruable point form.
The common complaint by the older generations is how socialized and dependent on the social or technological system they are. Baby boomers complained about the newer generations because they were objectively more dependent on social systems through increasing connectedness with the internet, globalization, etc.
To believe it is baseless or "idiotic" to claim that a succeeding generation is inferior by some consistent metric is the kind reddit nonsense that oversocialization causes. Humans and their societies are not consistent and they trend is directions that are better or worse over time.
>Every generation thinks it's better
Because every generation observes the increasingly invasive effects of technology, global interconnectedness, and modernism on succeeding generations. All of these are trending in a specific and objectively measureable direction. To Le Enlightened Rédditòr it appears that old people just complain about young people, when they are in fact observing the effects of a changing environment on their children, just as their parents noticed and complained about in times past.

Those books were a big deal, it was an "the evidence is getting overwhelming" moment in the public consciousness. It was the culmination of 30 years of research on B-W IQ differences, meaning since Jensen's initial 1969 Harvard article.

Jews do have chaos agents in high places, and undermining WASP Anglo society has long been a goal of theirs, but it's far too simplistic to say they can chart the course of history here - all that needed to happen was for science (behavioral genetics, twin studies, psychometrics, statistics) to progress until the evidence for genes being critical was on the wall. Then you have no choice but to deny it, and to promote censorship, because the truth is too terrible for the globohomo project to cope with.

i wonder what the purpose of left and right terminology is. whats the difference between being ruled by a monarch or niggercorp? there doesnt seem to be much. one thing i can think of is maybe its just supposed to be inherently divisive on purpose, to keep the slave class infighting (not that slaves running the farm is necessarily better). its arbitrary to categorize opinions as left or right. why would something like environmental preservation have to be associated with lgbt acceptance?
you would think environmental issues would be associated with conservatives but most republicans i know think climate change and turning the world into a plastic landfill are commie lies. just because jews might want a carbon tax for more shekels doesnt mean human-led climate change is fake. ruling class will generally seek an excuse to monetize anything. sorry if im just retarded and missing something obvious.

right and left are just tribal groups, contradictions in tribal thought doesn't matter so long as it can't be used as an effective weapon against it. tribes like to conform to any thought that their tribal chief (politician) espouses, even it contradictory to previous deeply held beliefs.

All political theory can be just boiled down to tribes hitting each other over the head with clubs for supremacy, we just now do it in such an abstract way that people falsely believe that we've evolved past that.

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.

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.

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.

I guess "ironically" would have been a better choice of words than "jokingly". Gen z thinks spouting memes "ironically" is hilarious.

>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.

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.

>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.
