Boomer Supremacy?

This excellent piece in The Monthly makes an interesting point about the current uprising of voices against the Sydney nightlife lockout laws.

I think there is something in his point that it is an expression of wider economic, cultural and social problems that young people face,  but have very little control over, as much as frustration that one’s social life is hindered. They are then blamed individually for these problems as personal failing.
