The same people that will tell Gen X and Y to "be responsible for your actions" are the same ones that basically through the younger generations under the bus and now we have to suffer with this sorry excuse of a society pandering to those that want "reparations" from something that no one on this planet at the current time had anything to do with? Are Boomers the biggest hypocrites in the history of the 20th century? I say yes.

I blame baby boomers for a lot, but not "white guilt"

White guilt was a concept that was dreamed up before the Baby Boomer generation was even born. It goes way back to before WW1 with the Frankfurt School and cultural Marxism.

Quote:
“We must realise that our party’s most powerful weapon is racial tension. By pounding into the consciousness of the dark races that for centuries they have been oppressed by the Whites, we can mould them to our program. The terms ‘colonialism’ and ‘imperialism’ must be featured in our propaganda. In America we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against the Whites, we will endeavour to instil in the Whites a guilt complex for exploiting the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to rise to prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sport and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negroes will be able to intermarry with the Whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause”.

Israel Cohen writing about the communist party’s objectives in ‘A Racial Program for the Twentieth Century’, published in 1912.

I'd say this shows us concepts never die......just get passed on to the next generation or can skip a generation or two. Most things that happen seem to make a full circle back around.

Marxism does seem to be on some people's radar as a way to run the world.

Why not? Boomers get blamed for every ill and bad deal in the history of America so you might as well throw White Guilt onto the pile also.

The vast majority of people are the "useful idiots." They have no idea where their ideals come from. Many who promote Marxist concepts would argue that they don't, the minute that you pointed out that they do.
