Gibney shows how America was hijacked by a generation whose reckless self-indulgence degraded the foundations of American prosperity. Acting without empathy, prudence, or respect for facts-- acting, in other words, as sociopaths-- they turned American dynamism into stagnation, inequality, and bipartisan fiasco. In the 2030s damage to Social Security, public finances, and the environment will become catastrophic and possibly irreversible. Gibney argues that younger generations have a fleeting window to hold the boomers accountable and begin restoring America.

Globalism and corrupt politicians are where the real blame should be placed for the problems now facing North America and Western civilization as a whole.

Gibney sacrifices coherent analysis in an attempt to be controversial. Some interesting evidence of the slow descent of American society is provided but his attribution of blame for everything currently wrong with America solely to an undifferentiated, homogeneous "Boomer generation" without recognition of the many other factors behind the decline or even the differences within the generation leads to a less than useful analysis.
