I think you might want to re-read the quote. It said, "the previous generation" and you misread it as "previous generations".

This is perhaps the first time in memory that a generation is not better off than the generation that preceded it. Technology and knowledge has been continually improving for several hundred years and the previous generation was able to get a decent paying job and establish a life simply by working hard and being a decent citizen (assuming that you weren't part of certain marginalized groups). That has since been eroded by the increased inequality caused by the neoliberalism of the 80s and 90s.
"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." - George Bernard Shaw
Don't ask people not to debate a topic. Just stop making debatable assertions. Problem solved.
