In case you missed it, there it is: the Millenials have ended, and the next in the cycle of oppressed Silent Generations has clearly arrived... In fact, they're now entering 5th grade, poised for adolescence. This generation is parented primarily by "Gen Y" (the last few cohorts of Gen X) and Millenials.
After looking and finding no name for them as yet, I'm going to suggest calling them the Disruptive Generation. The past generation was called "Silent" because their childhood was in the shadow of the Great Depression and World War II, spent looking up to their heroic elders who fought the battles and just being very good children so as not to cause any more problems. They were quiet, serious, married young, had babies right away, worked hard, and then after all that pressure, many just "freaked out" in a way that was terribly destructive to the young GenX, their kids (and made us the self-sufficient, innovative, and uplift-oriented generation we are today).
Another thing to note about the Silents is that the few who did disrupt, changed the world: Martin Luther King, Timothy Leary, Gloria Steinem, Jimi Hendrix...? They were all Silent Generation, not Baby Boomers!
So I suggest it's time to find a name for this generation. To get the party started, I've suggested Disruptive Generation because of its ability to bring courage to those who would disrupt (though it will also be mortifying to the rest of them, and it might encourage the generation's worst behavior to hang on...), but I'm hardly a tastemaker. I'd particularly love to hear from the Silents themselves, 67-83 year olds.
