And the generation before him had similar things to say about yours. At least he didn't tell them he had to walk 10 miles uphill in the snow both ways on HIS way to school.

Yeah yeah I know it, all you old geezers thinks my generation are lazy punks.

Take a look back first you hippies.

Shame on the older generations more like for being so narcissistic self absorbed and for eroding the moral foundations of society by not setting a proper example.

On behalf of all "Millennials"

WHAT DID YOU EXPECT!?


Oh, please.

Give me a break.

On behalf of all older generations.... WE TRIED, YOU CRIED ABOUT IT.

Then parents, educators, and adults need to stop their whining as well, because they are and were the ones responsible for this generations upbringing.

Victims crying about the victims. Wonderful.

I will however ever agree with some of the the entitlement attitudes the younger generation has, but again who nurtured these behaviours.

Time for everyone to own up.

Good for him. When these coddled children move into the real world, they won't be able to cope.

Pretending to be a victim won't play well once you're on your own.


I saw a post just today about this.

It went like this:

1944:

18-20 year olds where storming the beach on D-Day and dying by the hundreds to defend the rights of others.

2015:

18-20 year olds are screaming for a safe place on campus so they can recover from the hateful words people have said to them.

The downfall of the American youth.

Isn't that why men stormed the beaches of Normandy, so other generations could be safer and have a future like the one you speak of?

I guess were damned if we do and damned if we don't.

Maybe someday we'll find stability and balance.

Yes the pendulum does swing far in both directions.

Another old saying:

The ones who trully know freedom are the ones that where willing to sacrifice for it.

Currently the swing is way to much towards the left and focused on "ME". We are about to hit that left/liberal point and begin swinging back. (If we have not yet done so.) And no I don't wish to swing WAY back to the right again ether, but we probably will in the next few years.

Will we ever find a balance? Probably not. But hopefully the swings will get smaller.

Good point! I'm sure these old fogey's would get a better reaction from the Millennials if most comments weren't so narrow minded. I tried pointing out already that the media loves to twist stories to get a reaction. Most here know this, tell others to stop believing everything you see on TV, yet eat up the propaganda when it fits their biased viewpoint.

I'd be willing to bet that each and every generation had their small patches of "Entitled Kids" just like the Millennials. The difference is now any small town story can become world wide news in minutes. The entire world is connected at the palm of their hands. So now these random stories pop up and an entire generation is being dragged through the mud over a few kids actions.

The younger generation is dismissed as "entitled" while those doing the dismissing conveniently forgets who raised them...

Any entitlement is, and I don't often yell, ONE HUNDRED PERCENT the 'fault' of their parents. Genetics isn't responsible. Past a certain point maybe the onus is on them, but people are enormously influenced by their environment.

Now, there are people who take this too far. They do tend to be in the minority, thankfully. At least where I live, they are.

On another note, it's not the millenials who ****ed the economy.


One group of people I absolutely detest are the "bootstrappers."

Oh, and anyone going on about "participation awards" is an utter moron who doesn't know what they're talking about. By the people who receive them, they are seen as badges of failure.

That right there reflects the awareness of millenials, they have been neglected, taught ignorance and promised nothing but a lifetime of slavery to endless debt. They are a product of the de-education system, TV and social engineering via internet.

No wonder they have total disregard for this paradigm and anyone who represents it.

Cops come on campus and abuse them, teachers are intolerant bigger versions of scolding parents, religion accuses them of "sin". the media scolds them for not 'growing up'. They don't want to grow into anything we have to offer. Endless war and debt, mind numbing boredom, loss of individual freedom and entrepreneurship; they can't protest, redress grievances, organize, no wonder they chase the media off campus and shut out our "society".

Go millenials.

As I am sure you can see how that complicates the issue, as parents are blinded by the majesty of their children. They can only see the flaws in other peoples children. They lack the ability to see the flaws in their own.

Parents have another affliction. Their brains will not allow them to process guilt in their children. If any reflection of guilt comes within the proximity of their children, the auto defender switch is activated. Their children are incapable of wrong doing and it is always another child, adult or issue at fault.

So I agree that parents play a huge part in the development of a child, they can only fix a problem if they have the ability to see it. Most parents do not have the ability to see their children as others see them.

Now now, I'm not American, but I graduated High School about a month ago, and all my teachers were awesome.

@NightSky

That's a fair point. That particular issue with parenting has been around since... Forever. I can't see it being rectified, either. It's a symptom of a problem with humans in general, though particularly us westerners. The "It's always someone else's fault" affliction. Children are like an extension of their parents, that's why they can't see their faults.

One thing that is really annoying is overly-sensitive people in a friendship or relationship - it can make it hard to grow the relationship. For example, I was driving one of my friends around, and she wanted to stop at a coffee shop. I said that I didn't want to - expressing my differing opinion very politely (I am mindful of this sort of thing) - and she thought I was oppressing her and that it was verbal abuse.

If she acted like that seriously, rather than jokingly or sarcastically, then she isn't your friend. I'd call her an acquaintance, at best.

Though it may also be a difference in our cultures.

Post the offending sermons and I'll give an honest opinion
Because honestly today churches are engaged too much in political correctness and sadly much of it is seriously lacking in the original fire of truth.

Churches are too involved in political anything.

I sincerely hope by "fire of truth" you don't mean "stone prostitues" or something.

To bad this is a Private Institution, a public college president needs to speak up.

But I have a better shot at winning the lottery than that happening, because if it did, dollars to donuts that's where the next BLM movement would be, demanding the President resign.

While I don't understand why everyone's so easily offended and need tissues more often than not over the stupidest of stuff, the parent's should've raised the generation better, but they were too busy buying stuff they couldn't afford, paying no attention to anything that mattered politically, legally ... big hair and fake smiles.

About the only thing I like about millennials is they don't trust anything, especially politicians, and realize their parents were far too oblivious and allowed the country to be high-jacked, the ones I've talked with, anyway.

But I don't understand why everyone's so easily offended. Probably a product of Disney Mind Programming.

I'm actually with you on your post. Our kids inherited the mess we gave them while our own parents tried to protect us from the hardships of the Great Depression and WWII. But if anything the politicians sold us out and are in the process of bringing a Totalitarian world govt and there are many compliant people oh so happy to rely on the gov. Out gov is spending away our kids future and what do we do we say let's spend more and more. I scream and yell about the welfare state consciousness and this is where we are.

a reply to: Eilasvaleleyn no of course not and clearly you do not understand my meaning. You are talking about a paradigm I do not resonate with. I am talking about divine truth not this pablum that today passes for understanding. I think there is a great deal of misunderstanding. I disagree for one thing with the concept of vicarious atonement when the original message was be responsible for every jot and tittle. But the churches today have omitted the teaching of Origen on the pre extstence of the soul. And the emergence of socialist and Marxist thought in the churches is beyond all reason of the logos. How dare these imposters hide the truth from the people. What do you think the apostle Paul meant when he said that every man shall bear his own burden....
