The every other generation rule?

Magic Gen-X Question Lady,

What are your early thoughts/predictions for the post-millennials? I know we’re only just now getting a peek at the early ones (those currently entering college), but I’d like to hear/read your thoughts anyway.

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want, Mel:

I’m not gonna lie. Gen Z is kicking all of our asses. They’re selfless, idealistic, sweet, cute, smart, awes—OK, fine, not those Kentucky MAGA teens. But a lot OF Gen Z has been really impressive, and that lends itself to my theory that every other generation is more or less good. Greatest Generation? Comparatively good (the fuckers before them stopped paying taxes and crashed the economy and made prohibition and Jim Crow). Boomers? No comment. Gen-X? Innocuous. Millennials? NO COMMENT (except you, Mel. I like you).

By this math, my own kid is set to be part of the generation that comes after the generation that I’m pretty much depending on to save the world (provided the good ones get the MAGA teens to STFU), which means that there is a rather high probability that she’s going to suck. My only hope is that she’s sort of a cusper and may be considered youngest-Z, just as I consider you an honorary youngest-Xer, Mel.
