When I look at my millennial kids, I feel tremendous guilt, frustration, shame and anger, and I feel helpless as I turn sixty-five. I must confess that my generation is robbing future generations. This book is about how their future is being stolen right in front of their eyes and what the young

Confessions of an Old Man: How I Am Stealing From Future Generations by Munir Moon is a call to action. Focusing on the Millennial and so called iGen generations, Moon posits that these generations have the most to lose if the United States continues with its current economic course. Munir points out that they are currently paying entitlement that they may not get to enjoy once they reach the age that the Baby Boomers are now, and as such they hav

I received this Kindle book through a Goodreads giveaway, all thoughts and opinions are mine alone.
This book was especially of interest to me as the mother of a 2018 high school graduate. I feel like he made very good points and explained them in a way that I could understand. It seems to be especially geared towards the next 2 upcoming elections so it would be a good book to read soon, although I'm sure the logic of the book will continue to apply. There are several tables with names of people

Confessions of an Old Man: How I Am Stealing From Future Generations by Munir Moon is a non-fiction book that summons Millennials - the MI Generation - to mobilize for a shift that the Boomer generation (and to some extent, the Generation X'ers) are leaving as their political, environmental, and financial legacy. It's a guide that offers a no-holds-barred analysis on how the United States became a nation riddled with debt, student loans, limited and expensive healthcare options, inequality, war, ...more

This was a GoodReads giveaway win of a Kindle ebook.

This appears to be well researched. The target audience is really the young voting age adult or the MI (Millennial/IGeneration) as Moon likes to refer to them. The whole point of his opinion is that both current Left and Right sides fail to address the middle ground. They are too busily set in their ways and protecting their values and to increase their personal wealth.

What I got out of this was we are all afraid of change. We just want things

Confessions of an Old Man: How I Am Stealing From Future Generations by Munir Moon reflects the thoughts of an elderly man who looks past his age into what tomorrow holds for his offspring. Working from the premise that what millennials inherit depends on the choices we have made in the past and the choices we make today, he makes a strong case against the contemporary American political landscape and unveils glaring flaws in the system. The author explains how the political scene is structured ...more

Confessions of an Old Man: How I Am Stealing from Future Generations by Munir Moon is an eye opener of a book in which he talks about things such as global warming, poor healthcare systems, expensive necessities of life, and leaving children in a cold, cruel world. At first glance, the book seems to talk about the things we hear on the radio and news channels, but as I read further, I realized that the author was going much deeper than I thought he

Munir Moon has a great ability to take complex ideas, concepts and put them in the simplest terms for all to understand easily and in a way that we can relate to, no matter if you are a Millennial, or a Baby Boomer, or a Gen X-er. He covers many different points of socio-economic and political policies, as well as current conditions and ideas on what could be done to make our country’s economic and social situation better and stronger, and how we can do things better, instead of just repeating t ...more

Funny how few books there actually seem to be on this subject and it is such an important concept! I am still in college and it’s just not normally the type of book that I gravitate to for ‘fun’, but I thought there might be something useful I could learn anyways and I was so right! It is inspiring and well-researched – it is clear that the author knows what he’s writing about (and has quite an impressive author bio re: economics/finances/writing to prove it) Very straightforward, this

I wasn’t sure what to expect when reading “Confessions on an Old Man” by Munir Moon, as I’m not normally one to read these types of books. But surprisingly enough I found Moon’s articulate and engaging narrative style to be quite interesting and down-to-earth and very relevant to just about ANYONE, regardless of generation. I liked how Mr. Moon uses his vast and well-researched knowledge ‘story-style’ to make his points and relate his arguments and ideas in ways that we all can fully an

Review of “Confessions of an Old Man” by Munir Moon.
If you value your country and the future of our society, and would like our future to be better, then buy this book. If you know someone who wants to learn about new ways of thinking outside the box and tired of the same failed ideas being used over and over that is ruining it for the current (and future) generations, buy this book for that person. Mr. Moon does a great job of presenting his very common-sense ideas and cutting through so much

Throughout this book Moon discusses politics. Not just if his side is right and the other side is wrong. but discusses the hard questions of what it takes to makes a lasting government. Moon discusses things such as healthcare and how it is becoming overly expensive to have let alone need health care. He talks of how Medicare Medicaid and the ACA are a huge burden to taxpayers and how money is having to be borrowed on the backs of Millennials to fund all of this.
Also discusses is climate change

This is a powerful, very well-written and highly informative book! I have read several books on economic and political policy and our governmental and social roles for school, and sometimes I get the sense that most are just recycling old information. This book it seems like Munir Moon hits the nail on the head and calls out the problems that us millennials face, and the real reasons behind it. I read a lot of new ideas presented in a way that makes a great deal of sense, even if might be percei ...more

I think a lot of economic/political philosophy books get a bad rap sometimes, as a lot of times they are all theory and ‘talking in circles’ but with no real solutions or active steps…but I have to say in this case I feel like Munir Moon did a wonderful job of getting his message out and doing so in a very digestible manner. I was unaware of so many things discussed in this book, and I consider myself to be fairly well educated and in touch with current affairs. I’m not exactly sure who

In “Confessions of an Old Man”, Munir Moon lays out his ideas for a better social and economic future for the America and especially those of the Millennial Generation, and details why the policies and actions of an older generation and outdated lawmakers have essentially stolen their future. He suggests that there are ways to undo some of the damage by voting out the ‘old’ guard, the “Beltway Beast” in upcoming elections so as to shape policy that can hopefully save the future generations (if i ...more

Obsolete and fake news

Moon has written a negative picture of the American Pursuit of wealth. The one good thing is he lays blame on the congressional And senate systems with its elitist long term candidates. However, Moon does have an issue with Trump and he gives grim predictions of any of Tramp's plans. Yet, many have already been disprove.
Moon's primary intent is to show the upcoming generations that the babyboomers have robbed their generations blind by borrowing against a future which they

I read Confessions of an Old Man as part of a kindle giveaway. It's about time someone had the guts to admit that future generations are getting the shaft. Those is power are Baby Boomers and think as such thus ignoring constituent's problems that they don't encounter: healthcare, student debt, social security, etc. The idea of Moon's book is that the world has changed since the 50s, 60s, 70s and it's time for the US to modernize its thinking if it will progress. This book would be a great read ...more

I like the idea of student loan forgiveness or reduction as well as other ideas here like term limits and appreciate the attacks on modern America purloining the future of today's youth for short sighted policies. However, the felt like drudgery to get through and nothing particularly entertaining and exciting, let alone enlightening. Are the "MI" (Millennials + Generation Xers) going to be give short shrift, or as demographics change are they going to just vote their way to a brighter future on ...more

I do not know what I was expecting when I got this book, but it wasn't what I got. There is no confession of any kind. There is no insight. If you have kept up with the news on student loans, Medicare, social security, taxes, healthcare cost, and the national debt then you will learn nothing new. I doubt that any Baby Boomers who read this will fill guilty (which is the stated intent of this book). [I got this book via a Goodreads giveaway]

Mr Moon has written a most intelligent book about the many problems facing our nation and his suggestion for ways to change our future are brilliant!

A call to arms for Millennials

Let’s hope this catches on. The message in this book simplifies and brings forward the atrocities caused by the government to the future citizens of America. There definitely needs to be a change soon.

Finally, someone is willing to be honest about the awful hand dealt to millenials!! It has always been more popular to just demonize us rather than speak the truth. Thank you for your honesty, bravery, and for articulating in depth the experience all millenials have lived.
