The point I was really making is that it's equally as ridiculous to label Millennials as snow flakes, especially considering the fact that I am a Millennial.

I don't think you should take offense.

I posted a thread a while back questioning the legacy we where leaving our future generations, I am not very good when it comes to posting threads, so it didn't generate much interest,

The children of today, are products of the generations that came before them. If anyone should be embarrassed, or upset, with the the way our young children have turned out, it has to be the parents that planted, nurtured, or failed to nurture their seeds.

As someone has already stated, too many parents stopped parenting and and took on the roles of being bffs to their children instead. They followed the instructions presented them by the media and the State. Children left without direction, guidance, discipline, support, and love, have a better chance at success being thrown to the care of wolves.

If your generation is seen as a failure, the blames is not yours, it is ours.

Lol I've never been in an audience where people clap over the speaker. Generally they clap when they're done speaking. Or In between segments.


Quiet "jazz hands" seems pretty awkward....

That's just my opinion though

my thoughts:

- i graduated in 1992, and there were snowflakes back then, too. This isn't a new phenomena. Not by a mile
- media loves to find the unusual and highlight it as an 'interest' piece. So things you see happening on the news are guaranteed to be a sensationalization of what is happening in general
- the terms 'snowflake" and 'trigger warning' are starting to become so obnoxious that im having to fight an urge to punch someone. its time to jump off that bandwagon and begin marching to a different drum.

I can only truly speak for myself, but from where I stand, I see a bunch of rapidly aging folk that gave too much, reached too high, dreamed too big, then became fed up, used up, and burned out.



The Yuppies won.

Now, we have to figure out why.


That is the question that's answer has been carefully hidden amongst an empire of propoganda and a kingdom of bull#.

The powers that be, the "elites," the "cabalists," (which is derived from a Hebrew word that means "one who studies scripture), the men playing God without permission, the 1% of the 1% - I've always believed these people to be very real, and they've stolen lives away from billions of people.

It transcends partisan-politics, race, religion, gender, ethnicity - it does not discriminate, but it does use these things against us to divide us and continue their conquering reign. In my opinion, since recorded history - there has always existed a hierarchy system intergrated within whatever economic and/or political structure that transforms the original intent into.... well, look at the state of affairs in today's world. History does in fact repeat itself.

The thing is, it affects all of us and always has. I've had some of the most enlightening and awakening conversations with those of all age, religion, skin color, or whatever other labels those choose to pour on top of one another.

Now don't misconstrue me, people are also nasty - and it isn't an exception. It's downright despicable, but it's more pragmatic to examine things from an individualistic viewpoint and not automatically jump to baseless assumptions regarding "the whole," for the actions of the "few," and it is beyond refreshing to see those on ATS attempting to insert that into some of the ridiculous rhetoric that has taken foot lately.

Many of us on ATS are generally aware that "governments don't have the people's best interest at mind," and that's putting it incredibly # lightly - and that is what this nation truly needs. We don't necessarily need an abolishment of "the government," but more of a thorough examination, termination, and prosecution of those who have clearly violated ethical common sense and what "we the people's," general consensus comes out to be without the tampering hands of outside forces.

Unity is the only way to turn around the tides of oppression that have existed not only in our doorsteps but within our homes for too long - the timeframe is irrelevant, we as Americans should not stand for.

However, the masses are sleeping. They are being conned and manipulated at nearly every turn and we are no exception. Our world is shrouded in deceit and conspiracy, and the lengths, contemplations, and actions of the federal government should have Americans alarmed and more afraid than any "terrorist," that lives thousands of miles away in distant countries. However... Americans are more interested in other things, television, movies, fast food, the Internet, porn, video games, drinking/smoking, etc etc - and I'm not bemoaning or saying these things are necessarily bad, but they take precedence over what we truly should be fighting for.

And to top it off, we all work long days and a vast majority of us do it for hardly any pay-off and personally no self-worth when it comes to work. I have a college degree, and it was incredibly difficult for me to find a job and after extensive time I settled for something that wasn't even related to my degree due to a non-existent market for people my age.

We lost long ago, and I have an entire life ahead of me to witness the transformation of the America I was brainwashed about in public schools/colleges into what it actually is. If only the American people would stop bitching, complaining, blaming, one-upping, and being so damn proud they can't admit they can be wrong every now and again (we are ALL human) - perhaps, something could be done.

It's truly a shame.

Those terms are being used in Right Wing propaganda. That is why it is being regurgitated ad nauseum by those that have been exposed to it.

It's sad really.

Let me respond as if I am a SJW snowflake:

You are just insensitive. Shut up if you don't like it. What is so bad about people caring about other people's feelings?

I keep seeing all these threads, just another snowflake whining about snowflakes. Who is the snowflake here?

You are making this up. Are you just looking for stuff to be offended by idiot?

You are stupid. This is progress, you are just scared of things changing.

OH LOOK! Another Trump supporter crying because the world is no longer ran by straight white males.

Look at this guy, he is literally Hitler, LITERALLY.

I....can't.....even.....

You are stupid, your argument is wrong.

what saddens me is how easily people are infected with memes.

people that i have known for years start using new words in new ways to describe concepts that, honestly, aren't even worth taking notice of.

we all had our fun making fun of the sensitive kids. but its old. and absolutely not worthy of continued political drum beating.

I think I can make it more simple then that.

We are a capitalist economy. We are pressured to buy stuff.

Most people want all the shiny, brand new toys.

Exactly.

Well said.

People need to think for themselves and talk as if they have done so.

Another thread with "snowflake" in the title. Impressive. Can we get back to regularly scheduled programming yet. I'm getting tired of this insufferable nonsense.


It's almost as if they think that if they say it just one more time...suddenly it will seem deep

Right there is the difference between now and 92. In 92 the media had to actively find this to sensationalize it. Which made it a lot harder to get around. Today, the media only has to check what's trending on twitter, for the moment. Boom, insta story.

Social Evolution and Adaptation has to be a Two-Way Street.

If reasonable compromise is not possible, the lesser of the two ideologies will fail.

Growing up is hard.

Well said, BFFT... and I couldn't agree more.

What's even more sad to be witness to, is watching those same ridiculous memes becoming an echo chamber here on ATS.

I always thought most of us were above that koolaid drinking garbage... being the so-called anti-mainstream establishment conspiracy minded individuals that we're all supposed to be on this site.

But apparently not.

Go back a few more years and things were a lot different. The only news you got was from the neighbors or from the local paper, and it pretty much covered about a 50 mile radius from where you lived.

If I talked to someone, let alone stray one inch from my path home from school or visiting, by the time I opened the door, my parents could repeat almost very word of my conversation, and could map and time my steps along the way, better and more accurate than a GPS device.

I remember when we got our first color TV. The neighbors would come over to watch the Lawrence Welk Show. Almost everything was in black and white, only the news was in color. I think that is when the hole in the dyke got big enough that a mere finger could not contain it.

Before that you got your wold wide news from the news reel before the movie, and it was all propaganda, pretty much exactly the way it is today.
