Millennials are in a tough situation. The world is such that it's much harder for them to succeed and additionally they have not (by and large) been raised to deal with the problems they are going to face because their parents (the ones still in power) would rather pretend those problems don't exist or won't be "that bad".

They are out in a position where they have to seize the future and they're too busy fixating on the kardasians and all manner of other useless cultural detritus.

It sucks and I don't know if they can turn it around in time.

They won't.  They're absolutely convinced that, whatever they do, they're going to get a trophy for it.  Very few Gen-Y/Millennials ever figure out that hard work will pay off - they're too busy biatching about how it's SO unfair that they haven't advanced immediately.

And parents who made President Reagan and Big Cocaine a reality and beat our heads with their parents' war and Depression stories while they left the trail of sh*t we've been hesitant to go traipsing through with the same wild abandon.

They might call it apathy.  They might call it laziness.  I call it hesitation.  And I am totally cool with anyone coming up behind me who hesitates a bit as well.  Gen X is the 1940 France of generations.  Yeah, we got shat on and our underground barely made a dent  We lost a lot of good people, we cowered in the face of absolute defeat, but we saved an unfathomable amount of pop culture from vanishing forever.

 Hello, little man. Boy, I sure heard a bunch about you. See, I was a good friend of your dad's. We were in that 80's pit of hell together over 8 years. Hopefully, you'll never have to experience this yourself, but when two men are in a situation like me and your dad were for as long as we were, you take on certain responsibilities of the other. If it'd been me who'd - not made it, Major Dad'd be talking right now to my son Erkel. But the way it turned out, I'm talking to you. Butch. I got somethin' for ya. This album I got here was first purchased by your great-grandfather during the first Culture War. It was bought in a little record store in Knoxville, Tennessee,. Made by the first company to ever make glamour rock. Up 'til then, people just listened to Liberace. It was bought by Private Doughboy Pink Floyd on the day he set sail for Paris. This was your great-grandfather's war watch and he wore it everyday he was in that war, and when he'd done his duty, he went home to your great-grandmother, took the watch off, put it in an old coffee can, and in that can it stayed until your granddad, Mungo Jerry, was called upon by his country to go overseas and fight the Culture Club once again. This time they called it Culture War II.
Your great-grandfather gave this watch to your granddad for good luck. Unfortunately, Mungo's luck wasn't as good as his old man's. Mungo was a Vaudevillian and he was killed -- along with all the other Vaudevillians at the battle of Haight-Ashbury. Your granddad was facing death. He knew it. None of those boys had any illusions about ever leavin' that neighborhood alive, so three days before the Hippies took the pop-culture, your granddad asked a drummer on an bar circuit, name of Bonam - a man he had never met before in his life - to deliver to his infant son who he'd never seen in the flesh, his album. Three days later, your granddad was dead, but Bonam kept his word. After the war was over, he paid a visit to your grandmother, delivering to your infant father his dad's album. This album. This album was featured in Wayne's World when he was dying of AIDS. He fell ill, put in a hospice center. He knew that if the squares ever saw the album, it'd be confiscated and taken away. The way your Dad looked at it, this album was your birthright. He'd be damned if any yuppie's gonna put their greedy, dirty hands on his boy's birthright, so he hid it in one place he knew he could hide something - his ass. Five long years he wore this album up his ass. Then, he died of scabes. He give me the album. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of vynil up my ass two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. Now, little man, I give A Night at the Opera to you.

Really?  I always thought sh*tty workers were called Slackers. Before that Flower Children/Hippies/Boomers.  Then before that Cannon Fodder, and before that Starving.  History gets kind of blurry past then, but I'm pretty sure it's mostly syphilis and scurvy all the way down.

The boomers are the only ones with a defined start and end date set by demographers.  They run from Jan 1, 1945 to Dec 31, 1964.  That means Generation X starts Jan 1, 1965. The dates from when Gen X ends or when Generation Y or the Millennials start or end seem to vary by source.  Generation Y seems to be set fairly often as starting Jan 1, 1980.

Don't know what from hard times, exactly? Proper grammar?

I have no quarrel with Boomers. My parents were Boomers. However, I do have a problem with Boomers who refuse to acknowledge that they basically took every advantage they had with no regard to those who came after them.

I think it is without any irony that I feel more in touch with the parents of my parents than any other subsequent generation. I'm not trying to say that I had to work as hard as they did for what they achieved (far from it), but my parents thought they would have it easy. We had no such illusions, since we saw the mistaken assumptions they made. I had to get a Bachelor's Degree to earn what my parents earned when they graduated High School.

I love my fellow Americans (including you, sir), and feel that those who could not achieve what I did deserve my help and charity. But I will not take any shiat from those who feel that they are better than me or others in my generation simply because they were born 15-30 years before I was.

Thank you. Even when I was a child, I felt that it was best to look a generation ahead of my parents to get a "seasoned veteran's" view of history. I remember my parents telling me that there was "no way" what happened to my grandparents would ever happen to me; however, I felt that it would be a good idea to be prepared just in case.

Knowing the worst case scenario isn't a scare tactic; it's the reason I'm not a helpless charity case. The difference between me and the generation preceding me is that I actually give a shiat about those who weren't fortunate enough to get the same life lesson as me.

In this case it is causation. It was lowered for them and raised when they were done - a pure expression of the political power of having numbers.

I think the main difference between Gen X (mine) and Gen Y (kids) is this:

Parents and Society to Gen X: "The world is f♥cked. Someone's going to push the button and we'll all die in nuclear fire. If that doesn't happen we'll all get AIDS. We know your bedroom paint is lead-based, your school is lined with asbestos, and your playground equipment is dangerously rusty and sharp, but most of what you do will ever really matter because you'll be lucky to see middle-age, kid, but if we don't all kill each other, you might make a good nurse or find a decent job in a factory or even manage to get a high-paying white-collar job if you're from the right family. But either way, we're all doomed and so nobody's keeping track. Just... well... good luck, kid. Maybe in the future you'll get a flying car, but don't count on it."

Parents and Society to Gen Y: "The world is awesome, technology is making everything nifty, and you are the most special kid in the world! Fame and fortune are just around the corner and all you have to do is go out there and show them how super-special you are! Why, you got SO MANY trophies and awards in school, and everybody loved seeing your pictures, and we know you were such a smart child... How could you not  be the best at whatever it is you choose to do? We protected you from germs and dangerous food and metal playground equipment and everything else because you're so special! We know you're going to have an amazing, special, super-de-duper life!"

So we Gen-X folks, we grew up to be surprised if we had halfway decent lives and made it to 40.

The Gen-Y kids are all freaking out because they've been slapped in the face upon reaching adulthood and discovering that they AREN'T as awesome as they were led to believe. Worse, they're angry and insulted that people don't recognize their specialness.

/Gen-Y people are the only ones I've heard actually say "LOL", "El-oh-el", or "oh-em-gee" out loud...
//If they don't think this is crippling to them in the real world, they're also delusional.

Purely anecdotal, of course, but I find that many, many people younger than me are just utterly infatuated with themselves.  Humility and self-awareness are being bred out of our culture.
 
2013-11-25 11:32:56 PM  
This idea that everyone sucks comes from the fact that Americans watch too much tv. Most real life people have small joys and problems that don't get solved in the end.  Stop using Forest Gump as a model for a worth while life and maybe everyone won't seem to suck in comparison.

Mr. Eugenides: The boomers are the only ones with a defined start and end date set by demographers. They run from Jan 1, 1945 to Dec 31, 1964.


Except that its still a made up thing. I was born in 1961 and my parents are boomers. I dont fit any of the boomer criteria and I didnt benefit from the boomer largess. In fact, coming so close on their heels meant that every time I got a year from a professional goal they would have raised the bar to entry by the time I was there.

When I was done with college there was not a job to be had anywhere and there still isnt. I had to figure out how to employ myself.  I've been lucky in a lot of ways - and I like working for myself but Im not a boomer and I wish people would stop lumping me in with my parents generation.
