Why is it that the older generation is happier than current one...?

For some reason, these youngsters are more affected by things in life.

    Many reasons, my friend.  Most are retired and don't have to bend over to Government.  Now, it's Governments responsibility to fulfill their obligation since we've put more than 60 percent of finances in to our retirements where Government has put in 40 percent .  Payback is hell

    But, now and for the next 20 years , we can sit back , take a break, and watch the rat race without us being trampled over.  lolol....

    And you all will have the same advantage when it's your turn and we are gone.

    The older generation has been through more suffering.

    the young were vaccinated against mumps, measles, rubella and chicken pox. They never had lead-and-mercury fillings in their teeth. Maybe they even take it for granted that they can go to a bar or disco without being forced to breathe tobacco-smoke. they never were drafted into the army

    The older gen were focused on work family community and religion. They had values that insured success. This has been replaced by instant gratification greed selfishness godlessness promiscuity drugs welfare and the promotion of many sick and perverted ideas. Who to blame? Marxists and their bed buddies democrats. Think your unhappy now? If they get total power there will be a bloodbath and enslavement for the rest not in power.

    Because they have stopped caring (for obvious reasons) about how things have turned and are going to turn out in the future.

    Youth comes with a lot of angst and most older people now were once angsty themselves. This is because with age usually comes patience, acceptance and some other internal attributes that allow people to relax a little bit.

    the older generation has gone through way more bad than good and are now just being happy to be alive and the youngsters do not know how to handle anything that goes on that is not what they want to happen. They have been spoiled and only care about themselves and what they want
