Okay, Boomer, instead of Fuck you

Signed, has already decades ago, that it could come to conflict with the baby boomers. So, the generation group, including in Switzerland, the baby boomers of 1946 to 1964, which grew as the first ever in a war, spared Europe, older and of which many a First-Class could lead to life.

is to say nothing. We all would like to have the good life and early retirement for many boomers, of course. But not for Millennials. You will not have it as a first-Generation better than their parents. And you look into a dark future: precarious work conditions, and increasing Concerns in terms of climate change.

In this context, the two words, and the accompanying Hashtag #okboomer a global phenomenon. For Example, Chlöe Swarbrick. The 25-year-old members of the new Zealand Green parried during her speech to a new environment law on the interruption of an older fellow councillors with a dry "Okay, Boomer".

For such situations, the two words are reserved: If baby boomers don't want to know everything better, or simply accept that your behavior is in order. Paternalism just.

"Okay, Boomer," you can confidently say what is otherwise only with an angry "Fuck you" could be. Or with many words. "You have no idea, are irresponsible, with no respect", you would have to run there, "and you're so I-drunk that I can't redeem you from your delusions, I never found the time. This discussion is over."

#okboomer are not able to communicate with the Millennials the least with each other, that you don't have the energy anymore for debates – and it is instead better want to make.

As any Generation before them.
