The Alphabet [Rune] Soup of Gen X, Y, Z ... and Baby Boomers?

Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, and Gen Z Explained?
Reading through Gordon White's book 'The Chaos Protocols' he writes near the beginning of the book (page 35) that, "It's not really their fault, but the baby boomers are the economic equivalent of biblical locust swarm ... They received largely free healthcare and education which prepared them for the abundance of middle class jobs that were available in a successful economy. They benefited from effectively free housing as properties inflated along their entire working lives. The impact of their presence in tertiary education and the property market made both considerably more expensive which led to funding cuts for the generations that came after them. (Heaven forbid the taxes from the jobs they received by virtue of their free education should be paid back into the college system.)"
I thought to myself, who are the locusts in this (made-up) generational group, since I've never really taken much notice of just who is in what X,Y, Z group I hear about often (mainly from Gen Y-ers;-)?
Oh, so being born in '64 makes me a baby Baby Boomer?-)
It turns out that I'm one of these "Baby Boomers" that "missed by just that much" from being born a "Gen Xer" ... DOH!!! 
So that kind of makes me the baby of the Baby Boomer/Biblical locust plague group I was so 
"thank my lucky stars" that I was born into?-)
"Well, can you Grasshopper?":-)
I guess I should be deeply offended by Gordon White's not so wise words about an artificial group of people classified into groups because of their birthdays?
Especially given how anti-discrimination and PC Gordon seems to be?
Kind of reminds me of Chinese astrology and how being born in 1964 makes me a Dragon by birth, like some of my fellow 64ers, such as Russell Crowe, Terri Irwin, Sandra Bullock, Lenny Kravitz, just to name a few that I can still remember at my age:-)
Oh yeah, how could I forget that old Dragon, Richard Fidler?-)
Enron, Richard Fidler, the Bowls Club and Me?
I see that Sandy Bullock shares a birthday of July 26th with Carl Jung and Stanley Kubrick, as well?
I guess that re-reading Gordon's Chaos Magick book in 2021, the Year of the Ox has made me realize just how much amusing bull is in-between the pages of Gordon's book.
I'm not really a believer when it comes to
Chaos Magick like Gordon writes about in his books, as I believe that kind of stuff is just a sub-chapter of what I would term Synchromystism, not the other way round.
And I certainly wouldn't waste my time praying to half of the negative entities Gordon writes about doing the magickal hokey-pokey to in his books, but hey, whatever gives you peace of mind I guess:-)
Chaoz Zen?


  1. To be fair a couple of the points he makes about the boomers are apt. I’m an X same year as my tigers were out coached by the blues in the highest ever scoring GF. At least my uncle scored a goal. We got one back the year after.

  2. You might want to click on those links and read the articles for starters Spartan.
    In a generation or two the "Betas" or whatever BS name they come up with will be calling the X and Ys a Biblical plague, too.
    And so it goes ... that's if I've learnt anything from my free High School History education before dropping out in Grade 11 to get a job at K-mart collecting trolleys:-)
