Book Description

THE DIGITAL PAMPHLET

A Millennial Proposal for Preventing the Children of Baby Boomers From Being a Burden to Their Parents and Country


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"My daughter has gifted this writing to all of her friends. I can't understand why she's so obsessed with it or how she got the money when she hardly ever works!"
- Kirsty Allred

"Does anyone near Pittsburg want to co-host a multi-family banquet dinner? My parents are kind of fancy and I think they'd like that."
- Fredbert Willings II

"At least my son, a college graduate, is reading something other than comic books. He's read this a few times already and far as I can tell it has no pictures, so if you can get him to read political work, you must be doing something right and I should probably thank you."
- Christopher C. Macchen

"I cannot wait for SD!!!!!!1 Question: Do my brother and I have to split the 5k?"
- Karen Tuthers

"My professional pharmaceutical skills were going to waste as I languished in unemployment. This digital pamphlet helped me turn things around. Kudos to Miss Stover for solving the problems of an entire generation!"
- Bill Fastings

"How long before Facebook tries to acquire this?"
- Shan Rop, The Digital Dish Daily Scoop

"The most savage and exciting political essay of the season!"
- Kent Badgely

"Heads up that as we near the event there will likely be ice shortages in hotter areas like Arizona and Florida. We're working in anticipation of that, but people should begin stocking up now."
- Dawn Mulligan

"Finally, a reasonable economic plan that we can all agree on."
- Davis Henley, The Economy Institute of Greater America

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun little piece July 13, 2012
By KNHaw
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I stumbled across Ms. Stover's link to a one star review of this piece and was intrigued enough to buy her essay. It didn't hurt that I'd just read a Reason piece titled "The Real Class Warfare is Baby Boomers Vs. Younger Americans." I'm still not sure if that was coincidence or an insanely genius viral marketing campaign.

"A Millennial Proposal" is an obvious homage to Swift's "A Modest Proposal" and saying more on that point would spoil the fun. It's basically a well formed rant on the plight of our younger generation, taking points that we've heard before but distilling them nicely. Although I generally agree with her sentiments, her straw man is a mite too facile for me. Maybe that's just my Gen X proximity to the Boomers speaking, but then again there's only so much you can do in a short essay like this. It's a good length for a rant (too much longer would spoil it), yet packs enough value to make it worth the (very modest) price. For its brevity I'm tempted to dredge up a fast food metaphor, but that would be a disservice. It's a fun, quick read that touches on some deadly serious issues. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally April 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Someone who "gets" it. Best plan since Jonathan Swift. The excesses of the Baby Boomers have totally wrecked the hopes of all subsequent generations! The problem is at a critical point and the solution absolutely has to be radical. Boomers, who were supposed to care about peace and love and mother earth, turned out to care only about Beemers and bank accounts. No greedier group has ever graced the planet. I have been saying this for such a long time, it's time someone had the courage to suggest a real solution, before it's too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful April 14, 2012
By Chris
Format:Kindle Edition
A very well formed pseudo-treatise on the generational gap and how it has effected our economy. I am personally pleased to see that Stover's modest proposal echos the views I have frequently encountered in my own travels among "Millennials" and WWII veterans. Stover is eloquent and rational, and I cannot recommend this totally earnest and definitely not satirical work of super-seriousness enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sign me up April 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Finally, someone with enough balls -- or shall I say 'ovaries' -- to call out the elephant in the room, and say what we've all been thinking. Thanks, Mom and Dad, not only for driving up real estate prices to point that your own children can't afford a place to live, not to mention crying out for two wars that your grandchildren won't even be able to pay off; but for eating so much high fructose corn syrup and MSG over the last 30 years, that what little income we 'laziest/whiniest/most-entitled generation' have left, will be sopped up, to pay for the medical entitlement programs you insist on maintaining, rather than doing us all a favor and letting your bloated, medication-addled asses go the way of the dinosaur. I'm not sure if the author's proposal is the ONLY way to deal with the 'baby boomer problem,' but it sure sounds fun, regardless. Just desserts, anyone?

5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable Advice for Today's Youth. April 14, 2012
By LegioCI
Format:Kindle Edition
As a millennial myself, I found plenty of interesting and useful advice on how to make a place for myself in this world. The baby boomers are on their way out and it's up to us to take their place by any and all means. 5/5: everyone under 30 should read this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite the twist! May 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first I was a bit annoyed with the derision my age group is described with, but the story quickly gave way to ideas I've already read about change only coming once the baby boomer/greatest generation leaders die and the younger generations gain office. I have to say I was a bit shocked by the ideas presented here but enjoyed the matter-of-fact way the author presented them.

5.0 out of 5 stars good stuff! May 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A modern take on the cinematic classic, Logan's Run. As Stover recommends, "renewal" just might be the best option we have available.
