Throughout history, certain events seem to take place in cycles. Military buildup is often followed by actual war, skinny pants go in and out of fashion, and older generations criticize the younger. Younger members of society tend to retaliate, often by not listening to or actively working against their predecessors. The meme “ok boomer” is only the most recent example of this phenomenon, and it seems to exist for the same reason the saying “Don’t trust anyone over thirty” did.
