Holding baby boomers to account
Watch the Please just f* off it's our turn now Promotional Video
By Ryan Heath
Australia watch out! This is a snapshot of the generational change that is coming.
A call to generational battle not seen since the 1960s.
Heath, a twenty five year old writes about his generation - young
people in their twenties who he says are very different to Baby Boomers
and Generation X.
His book is a sexy snapshot of the people born
after 1970 - the people of this century. How they are different,
special and ready to take over from Baby Boomers.
Like many of
his generation, Ryan Heath has had a gutful of the same bunch of
boomers still hogging all the good jobs and holding Australia
back. He says: Enough is enough - it's time for a generational change or Australia will slide into decline.
a style that is controversial, passionate and with humour, this is an
enjoyable and provocative read in the tradition of Mike Moore. A
must read for Generation Y and X but also for Boomers who will love to
hate Heath's criticisms and mockery of them.
He pulls no punches when it comes to Aussie sacred cows and institutions - Fairfax, the ABC, and the ALP particularly.
asserts that his generation is very different to boomers and X's. They
may be smaller in number but are more diverse, better educated, more
socially responsible, switched on to new technologies and believe in
working through networks rather than hierarchies. He believes
they have what it takes to make Australia a better place.
says Australia is moribund and stultified with superannuated leaders
arguing over outdated orthodoxies while business, media, culture and
political parties sag under the weight of tired methods and ideas
recycled from the 70s and 80s.
According to Ryan Heath,
Australian public life has ignored the energy and ideas of younger
people leading to mediocrity and decline here, and an exodus of
hundreds of thousands of talented young people like himself to take up
opportunities overseas, where younger people are given positions of
responsibility, and where generations share more fairly.
Heath has been involved in grass roots campaigns (the Republic,
refugees, end to student fees), and has worked for ALP politicians and
is now working as a public servant. He lives in London.
