...some of the arguments, particularly in the sections on health care and student debt, are more exacting than others; a section on foreign policy is sensible but covers familiar ground. Overall, though, this is an intelligent call for practical reform.

Synopsis

The future is being stolen out from under the millennial generation. Baby boomers have much to answer for: a legacy of economic instability, poor job growth, and an environmental disregard. They have shattered the American Dream. A confession of an old Man is a statement of collective guilt that places the responsibility on the author's generation for dealing a bad card to their children.

This is a call to action for the MI generation (defined as those born between 1980 and 2018)-a generation with the most to lose if the United States continues with its current domestic and foreign policies. Millennials are paying the bills for their parents' neglect and they must have a say in their own future. Confession of an Old Man is also a call to those parents and grandparents who want to leave a better America for their children and grandchildren. 
The elections of 2018 and 2020 will be the most significant elections of this generation. The US House of Representative is filled with aging representatives (many of whom have held office for at least 20 years have become part of the permanent political class) who are out of touch with the priorities of the coming generation. Moon offers one of the best opportunities for making a change. At least 51 incumbent congresspersons are not seeking reelection in 2018-a record and the best opportunity for turnover in congress. We can effectuate change. Now is the time. Confessions of an Old Man challenge the MI Generation to take charge of its destiny or have the future decided by rich old white men.
