Every generation thinks they understand more than anyone else, in their time science has advanced the most, they have changed the world. The Cadillac and Elvis Presley generation of the fifties thought so, the hippie generation of the 60's and the cocaine and Sony Walkman generation of the 60's thought so. Now, as the Facebook generation thinks, the best way to change the world is to create mobile apps and Snapchat :)
Every generation has a fascination in front of it, running after that fascination, that generation gets old once and then unknowingly.
So please don't brag too much about your own generation & don't show disrespect to any generation from past or future
