To Baby Boomers out there, do you believe that your generation is happier, more fulfilled, and more
successful than the G.I. (World War II generation b. 1900-1925) in terms of lifestyle choices & overall quality of life?
Generally I would say the answer is yes to all. Mind you most of us going into our 60s are still looking for happiness and those golden moments in life. Success is relative and therefore cannot be measured unless you are referring to monetary wealth. Even there it differs from city to city and country to country.
Many of us have not been involved in war whereas the previous generation was much more involved in that sort of thing.
After the two A bombs exploded over Japan we knew there would either not be a third world war or that such a war would devastate the whole planet. Hence there have been a lot of little wars. The result? Migration to the countries not affected has continued and doesn't look like stopping. The end result? The next generation will have fewer resources than my own generation.
I would say yes! I know in my case I've done things and been places my parents never imagined for themselves. The quality of my life and my living standards surpasses what theirs was in many ways.

Are baby boomers considered middle age or senior citizens?
by Dr Freddie Haddox 6 years ago
Consider this, the number of older people that will be alive (and maybe not so well), within the United States of America, and in other world societies will become so great, sooner that later, that systems, medical and otherwise will not be available to care for them all. What do we do as a global...
