Alex Gibney made the point in A Generation of Sociopaths that 'boomers have a hard time forming lasting relationships, one of the hallmarks of sociopathy. He also briefly pointed out just how much lead the 'boomers (and GenX - let's not forget GenX) were huffing down, a toxin that lowers IQ, reduces impulse control and damages decision-making.

Yeah, lead made the crime rate go up. It probably also made the divorce rate go up. Shit, it probably contributed to shitheels like Kavanaugh gettin' all rapey in college. A decrease in the divorce rate is an unalloyed good. Just try not to be too superior about it, K?
