Yet Another Informal Poll : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Someone commented on an active thread that Gen-X ers are not preparing.

I thought it might be interesting to take an informal poll & see which generations are preparing. Are you pre-baby boom, baby boomer, gen-x, or gen-next?

I will stand up as a preparing Gen-Xer.

Baby boomer (43)

Baby Boomer

-- Marcy Sawyer (, July 20, 1999.

I'm 42 & preparing.

Also I'd like to share an interesting (maybe) statistic I heard yesterday: the world's population has doubled in the last 30 years. That means that if tomorrow, half the people in the world suddenly died, there would STILL be more people alive than there were when I was born.

Maybe that doesn't mess with your mind but it messes with MINE, I can tell you. The Infomagic scenario features billions of dead bodies... maybe 3 billion? That still wouldn't bring the population back to where it was when JFK Senior bit the big one (that was in 1963, for the historically impaired).

Not making a point really. Just something to meditate on.

Early Baby Boomer, who _feels_ like she went through the depression and W.W.II, because she had so many older relatives around and/or living with her when she was growing up.

My hairdresser (another Boomer) is also preparing. She has a Depression-era mother, too. When her mother is persuaded to come in to get a permanent, she brings her own cotton to use - that she has saved from medecine bottles. I don't think any of us can truly understand the lifelong impact a severe downturn in our economy can engender, unless we are forced to go through it ourselves.

Me = Gen-X (b. 1971), preparing as well as I can on extremely meager income. No, I am not the self-absorbed, whiney, moping, incompetant, amoral, stupid, and media-savy cretin as per the stereotype.

I know of few gen-x-ers preparing, as we tend to be a pretty cynical bunch with regard to Giant Money-Making Scams--of which Y2K is often perceived as a prime example. Being the products of so many homes that broke apart due to money, it's not surprising many see it as both the Root of All Evil and the Root of All Survival, simultaneously. It's not surprising that so many Xers are infected with the (often misleading) meme that "Y2K is for suckers." Most of us know what it's like to be a "sucker" and viscerally dislike being tied to that label in any conceivable way. We don't mind being laughed at for lack of knowledge or experience very much. But to be laughed at for being a "sucker" or "push-over?" Very unpleasant thought.

Not ever being born into extremely hard times (though not exactly Leave it to Beaver, either), it's difficult for many of us to imagine something like a major war with conscripts or a long Great Depression. Plus, many of us buy into the casual notion that the '60s turmoil broke all the rules about how things were supposed to work--that the economy has to cycle, that nuclear war was worth planning for, that people actually grew up in these places known as Home Towns where they knew their neighbors, that history had relevance and predictive value.

THEREFORE, if you want to convince people my age to prepare, simply remind them that there ARE such as thing as HARD TIMES (eg., being drafted or living in the Oklahoma Dust Bowl) and that FEW PEOPLE EVER ANTICIPATE HARD TIMES. Tell gen-xers that Y2K is ALL ABOUT MONEY and that by following the money a little more closely, an alarming prospect can be realized. Tell them that the REAL SUCKERS are the people being lulled into complacency that Nothing Changes and that preparing for change is stupid.

Another trait I've heard about GenX is that they are supposedly adapable, mobile, and easily able--or even overly eager--to seek out a new niche. This will be an asset in helping Xers and all of us survive y2k. I am convinced that the winners after y2k will be the flexible and dynamic, not the static. (That's why I think a good bug-out bag and shortwave radio is far more important than a good "bunker".) If you want to convince a genXer to prepare, tell him that preparedness is sometimes better when done in advance, that flexibility is not necessarily sacrificed with a little long-term planning and thinking ahead.

Just my $0.02.

-- coprolith (, July 21, 1999.

-- LauraA (, July 21, 1999.

I hear that if you are old enough to remember J.Kennedy's assasination and some of the other weird stuff that began to emerge in the '60s as a child/teen, you are Boomer (b. before 1963).

If you cannot remember a time when Reagan WASN'T President, you are whatever comes after genX. In your age group it is/was acceptable to wear those Ravish fashions (that dyed-blond hair and the clothes with that funny Euro-stripe) and urban-style baggy trousers (b. after, say, 1980).

If you are in between I guess you are genX. If you buy into Howe and Strauss's arguments, generations have meaning, being both driven by and driving the cycles of history. Right now we are supposedly in a "season" where the culture is disintegrating, a time of slowly-brewing conflict and chaotic turmoil that will gradually boil in to a "crisis" era. Before this was an "Awakening"-style era (1964-1984), a rebuilding era (1945-1964), and the era of the last major global crisis (late 1920's to 1945). If you were born in a time of disintegration you are of the "hero" archetype--you fought world war II, spilled your guts, and returned home to rebuild the crumbling old institutions and create new ones.

If you were born in the crisis you are generally raised under overprotective parents and were too young to save the world from the crisis, but you offered an sensitive, obedient, helping hand to your older heroes, fitting the "Artist" archetype.

If you were Boomer "Prophet," you questioned the stasis and drab conservativism of the world you inherited from the heroes who returned from WWII. You, never knowing terrible hardship or societal turmoil, wanted to stir things up a bit and strayed away from the old values (either that or you zelously fought for them, spawning "culture wars"). You were convinced that _you alone_ had the right answer to what seemed to be going wrong with the world rebuilt by our Hero generation (b. 1900s to 1920s). You and others like you around the world, by resisting and testing the reactionary "Heroes," have been unknowingly setting the up the stage for the next major global upheaval. Will y2k be the thing that triggers the next upheaval? It seems to be a likely candidate.

Why? Y2k is the legacy of the Hero's major downfall, his hubris. COBOL and many of the conventions which made y2k likely were a result of overly-fossilized, first-generation programmers who just wanted to keep the status quo and not rock the boat..."If it ain't broke (yet), don't fix it." What will be the actual, solidifying nature of the conflict? I'm not sure yet. Perhaps, as before, it will amount to a reshifting of current equilibrium individual and collective rights.

What's the supposed downfall of the Boomer Prophet? His belief in his absolute moral correctness. When you have two people in an argument who are absolutely convinced that their own God-given mandate is infallible, a really really bad fight is bound to happen. This is why the Civil War was so long and bloody, why Nazi Germany hung on so long to their pseudo-religious, racist dreams of "Aryan destiny." This is why the people on this forum debate with such bludgeoning force and often without tact.

The downfall of the genX "Nomad?" His amorality. Coming of age in a time when all the old rules and conventions were broken, he has to pick up the pieces and make his own code of ethics. He thinks that what's good for himself is good enough for anyone--that because every social contract broken anyway, there's no reason not to make and brake his own contracts according to his own whim. He doesn't have time to waste with polite social conventions or deal with silly bureaucracy, tending to see rules as obstacles rather than things to revere. Beware of the Xer.

The downfall of the "Silent Geneation" Artists (b. 1920s-1940s)? Their passivity. They want to make sure everybody's moderately content and don't want to raise a big stink, quietly minding their own business. They don't want to rock the boat and ponder that things can get really uncomfortable again.

Of course, these are all just overgeneralizations of those authors, but they are interesting to ponder.

I am 21. I am a gen-xer (barely). So I guess you must all now tremble in fear of my lack of morals. After all I am a methodologist. I believe that how you treat people in the attainment of your ideals are more important than your ideals. But what do I know? I'll just be one of the many in *my* generation that will be picking up the pieces of this whole mess.

The reason? Somehow I doubt the highest death rates are going to be the in the 20-35 (year) catagory. So to us, being well educated and still young and spry, probably will fall the rebuilding.

Beware! (evil scary music) We never particularly liked this society (thus our oft critizied apathy towards it) and (I speak only for myself) I'll be damned if the tiny part I influence will be built back up in it's image.

As for the apathy itself... I've always considered it more, "I don't believe that amassing huge amounts of consumer garbage or having a job enabling me to amass huge amounts of consumer garbage is really that important. I'd rather read Hegel, Plato, Descartes, Tsai Chin Chung, etc. and ponder the meaning of Kraft Dinner. After all, I really don't need to do anything to improve the world. The Baby-boomers (who never tire of telling us so) already made it a paradise on Earth. And expirenced all the really important events. Thought all the really important thoughts. Made the really important discoveries... etc., etc."

Hmmm... I guess I'm a little bitter. I just think about the natural beauty the baby boomers had, realize they squandered it on bigger, better *things* that mean nothing to me, committing in the process possibly the greatest crime against humanity and then listen to them preach about my generation's amorality. After all, they had to deal with the same rates of divorce, drug abuse, school shootings, deteriorating inner cities, newer and ever more crass and dehumanizing levels of commercialization, deminishing natural enviroments, and spiritual wastelands yet they still managed to be wonderfully well adjusted beautiful people that saw love (via the use of drugs) in every puddle of vomit.

BTW, the cutoffs are as follows (to my knowledge) 1950-1965 (boomer) 1965-19
