The Reckoning

|Friday, Jan. 24, 2014

Next year the first Baby Boomers (born 1945) will hit 70 years of age, while the last born of the three-part Boomer generation (born 1964) turn 50 this year. It’s also been almost 40 years since Tom Wolfe, in a 1976 New York magazine article, coined the term, “The ‘Me’ Decade,” to describe the first Boomers’ evolutionary period. Wolfe said it marked the youthful communalism era’s transformation into one of atomized individualism. In the late 70s Saturday Night Live writer and performer Al Franken found the term worthy of parody, but today it’s not so funny. The “Me Decade” turned into the “Me Generation.”
