Warning: Includes swearing.

This video was passed on to me by a friend. Thought I'd share it.

With that out of the way I think Carolla brings up some very good points. This SJW phenomena is something we as a society haven't seen before. We're seeing the products of the first "everyone gets a trophy" generation hitting the real world and not being prepared for it. There's envy. There's shame.

Touches on a larger issue playing into this which is parenting and parents haven't done their kids any favors by constantly telling them how great they are.

I see this every day. I am a millennial. I'm surrounded by them. Many have terrible coping skills any time they face adversity. You have to walk on egg shells around them, worried about offending. Unprepared for life would be a good description. I think the younger generation, early-mid twenties is even worse. I never connected the "everyone gets a trophy" generation to it as I luckily just missed it growing up but it makes sense. At least to explain some of what we're seeing.

Yeah, whatever. Adam Carolla gets it. Millennial SJW assholes have really been the whole part of the problem. Adam makes some damn good points. In fact, if millennials cant understand basic concepts, we ARE #ed. What is coming is totally deserved. All these baby "liberals" are going to find out sooner rather than later that they have been lied to. The people they hate so much, the people they have been TAUGHT to hate, are the people they will wish they listened to.

Trump isn't going to solve anything. The lying media will continue to lie, and push globalism. It will work eventually and humanity will be one big sellout, because people will buy it. They already do. Current "liberals" have already proven it.

Haven't actually heard him in ages.

. . . find out sooner rather than later than they have been lied to,


When they begin to accept they've been lied to they get depressed and angry and no longer want to discuss the stuff they were ranting about only a few weeks before.

Just a matter of time before "opposing" sides no longer even exist.

I believe they call that "peace". Sounds horrible.

SJW snowflake is just a Patriotically Correct term for "I dont like you cuz you're a liberal".

If millennial's become the norm then I am not sure what to expect of this world. Not all of them are childish liberals, but those that are childish are also liberals, though this is likely due to group think and perhaps cult behavior.

I see faint glimmers of hope, but most are incapable of political discourse, or any such kind.

Personally, I wasn't born on this planet to be a slave, so I can work for someone and rise up the ranks of slavery to become more able to buy shiny things so I have more.

I was born a free person. being forced to work in order to merely subsist, not at my own hands, but at the hands of big business that let me enslave myself, to me as an affront.

I'd be happy living in a self made cabin, near a river, growing food and living a self sustained life.

That is illegal down here, and in most places, now. squatting on crown or federal land.

So I dont get this "just get out and get a job" bullshine. not everyone is making 10,000 a minute.

So I do get the ire. but I don't get the socialist twats who destroy things and want handouts. Give them all a piece of land and if they fail, so be it. I know I'd appreciate the opportunity. Because I know I would LIVE, and not merely exist.

How's your fossil fuel addiction? I've been a bit excessive lately.

It's easy to be blind to it, travel addiction is viewed as an entitlement.

They tend to stay up late talking about what they're going to do. Then they get up long after sunrise and fail.

Travel is a right.

If you think being forced to do it only in certain ways is an entitlement, then you're so far off the mark that it's insane.

If I could fill a machine with my own self made fuel, do you think it would be allowed to travel on falsely sanctioned paths?

No, you need a car, a license, pay for fuel, taxes, ensure it is 'roadworthy' and then obey the rules set out. sure to protect others, but the point is, it is not an addiction, it is a right.

Survival of the fittest. From these protests I don't see the fittest. I see the loudest. But my point was, I don't agree with this concept of enforced labour simply to live.

So much land is free. and we were born free. I certainly didn't sign a contract on birth, I was just given a number and expected to be a source of government revenue. And if I opt out, all options are illegal. Hence, it's enforced labour.

despite how many cars or ipads you can buy.
