Yeah, because the previous generations have done such a wonderful job and created this heaven on earth we live in today


Around only 70 years ago.....

The previous generations lived through war, yes war with the the

country which is trying to subjugate and bully us into staying in the

EU.

Many parts of London looked like the pictures we are seeing of Syria.

Food rationing....Meat was still rationed in 1953!!

Clothes rationing...

You wont remember any of that?

The *special snowflakes don't know what hardship is

In the sense you mean it, to you guys that have drowned in propaganda? Seems like anyone you don't like is an SJW so that would be all liberals and anyone on the left and all news you don't like is fake.

Judging by your avatar you can't handle anything that isn't white and Christian.

This problem involves people on the right too. It's just more prominent on the left because they truly believe that your rights end where their wants begin. I've had some pretty scary convos with younger folks on both sides.

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


Idealistic!!!

# Wouldn't you need manufactured saws, nails, weatherproofing,

damp proofing, cooking utensils. would you keep cows for milk?

untreated milk is not good... I dont know where you live but severe

winter conditions? Fruit and veg you grow doesn't grow in the winter

will you be using a supermarket to top up?...need money.

If you succumb to the bad weather, won't you need a doctor?

A doctor? has been through the system you despise..... But hey you

need and will use him/her?

What about sanitation? feaces how are you going to deal with that?

years of sh1t .... or are you going to do it in some one else's land. LOL!



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


I own the piece of land that my house and garden are built on, and NO

I wouldn't be happy with someone pitching a tent/caravan/shed on it.

I worked and paid for it, and now I can sit back and enjoy it!



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


Because you live and depend on a community and everyone should do

their share, but Hey!! there are always ones that don't or won't pull

their weight and do their 'fair' share.



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.


Those *socialist twats* to quote you .... are far too lazy for ^^that^^

and are happy to take the handouts funded by those who work

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.


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.


Driving on roads (transportation of property) was a right a long time ago, now it's just a privilege to be taken away at any point. Just like all the other cute little "rights" people think they have until a boot is stomping on their necks.

Did you make that machine? *sanctioned paths*? are to protect others from

your home made machine.

Self made fuel? really? from scratch? or from mixing already manufactured

ingredients?

'roadworthy'

If you are NOT concerned for your own safety ..... it is in place to protect others

whom it seems you have little concern for .... selfish much?

Me me me me.....

And those are the parents of the next generation ......

God help us


Yeah, because the previous generations have done such a wonderful job and created this heaven on earth we live in today


Exactly this...

I'm getting rather fed up with the "oh so wise" older generation complaining about us "millenials". I've worked hard all my life, started working at 14 whilst still going to school. Couldn't afford higher education so went straight into work and have never looked back.

I have basically no hope of being able to own my own home. No matter how hard I work, I doubt this will be a possibility for me or my young family. I can barely afford to rent a property and I don't have a bad job by any means, but 75% of my salary goes on rent, the rest on bills and food and I don't have enough left over to run a car.

The generation before us has left us with a heaping pile of shyte for an economy, what hope do we have. There aren't enough jobs to go around so jobs for the youth don't exist like they used to.

The cost of a house in my town (in an estate where you aren't likely to get stabbed at least) is around £200,000 - £250,000 and because you old sages didn't understand how credit works, there isn't a bank in the country that will loan me more than £100,000 - £120,000 and that's with a 10% deposit. How am I supposed to save for a deposit anyway? I have to put my family first and if that means (it does) having no savings, then that's that I guess!!

The idiots you see on YouTube are just that, entitled idiots. How are they any different to your generations hippies though? I might not agree with them, but at least they are getting involved in politics, not just finding excuses to do acid and shag in a field (redundancy is fun!).

If given the chance, I will spend my life trying to do my part to fix all the crap you guys got wrong, so that hopefully I will leave my son with a better future than you left us.

Good lord, yet another thread on ATS where people on the right whinge about liberal snowflakes.

For people who like to condemn those who whinge a lot as 'entitled snowflakes', y'all sure do a lot of entitled whinging about other entitled whingers on this website yourselves.

Was working with a teacher client of mine in CA and she told me the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard about high school level kids these days.

She told me she keeps her office door open for office hours and likes it to stay open because it gets hot. There have been multiple instances of her meeting with students and them accidentally kicking/knocking the wedge out from under the door. She said that most of them have NO IDEA how to get the wedge back in the door. They don't know how it was there and she has to show them how a wedge works. I begged her to tell me she was kidding but alas, it was not the case. I hear this from many of my friends, too, who went into teaching.

The next generations are going to be a disaster. They don't know how to write cursive, look someone in the eye when shaking hands, dress themselves, or really figure things out on their own.

I agree with you about house prices, the boomer generation really stitched us all up...I'm Generation X and have a Millennial (22) daughter. After renting for years and years, I finally got my degree in my early 30's (whilst bringing up my child on my own) got a good job and bang..the housing market boomed and where you could buy a house in my area for £50 - £60k previously, suddenly there was nothing under £100k even for a one bed in a crap area.

It has started to shift back now, though not enough, too many people paid way too much for their homes in the last 15 years, but the market will continue to correct, and whilst there is no chance for me, I hope that there will be for my daughter in the future, because ultimately if no one is buying houses because they can't afford them, then the prices will have to come down, and down in line with average wages. So hopefully in the future you and your family will get sorted as people start to realise that houses are not magic cash machines, they are built to be homes, for people to live in, for the rest of their lives!

I do agree with others though that some of the entitlement and inability to deal with real life of this generation is astonishing...I've seen it first hand and it ain't pretty.

The thing is, at least for us in Britain, I don't see the house prices going down because there will aaaaaalways be investment buyers and schemes promoting rental accomodation. As the rental market is so out of whack, there is no reason not to buy property at stupid prices because they can then rent it to us poor schmucks at even crazier prices.

In the 70's, 70% of a minimum wage was enough to rent the average 2 bed. Now, it's more like 110%...... what chance do we have.

Also, I agree with this too, but they're not called millenials, they're called poorly raised douchebags. It has nothing to do with the year they were born and everything to do with their laissez-faire upbringing.

p.s. i don't want to sound butthurt, my parents were great. I was one of the lucky ones.

The majority of people work to acquire land to do the things mentioned.

I had to ponder on this for a minute because what you've stated is true. I can't exactly disagree with your point of view, yet it feels a bit hollow to me - like there's some pieces missing to this puzzle.

Perhaps, in part, the SWJ mindset's problem stems from something far deeper. There seems to be a "baseness" to this feel or energy, like it's heavy and lacking of imagination - which could counterbalance this heaviness. This imagination I'm talking about isn't the kind that allows you to draw up super-fantastical imagery in your mind's eye, (there's plenty of that to go around, and then some...) rather, I refer to the deeper aspect of imagination which gives the mind the freedom to soar with boundless restraint to the far reaches of the ethereal sub-consciousness where the true seat of the soul lives

I wonder if maybe it could have something to do with the utter void in which the world of the SJW's spirituality seems to live. Consider perhaps, if you can, that our soul DID, in fact, choose to come into this world prior to our birth (who knows that we didn't?) or perhaps our creator chose us....

If you can believe your life was meant to have purpose, and you landed on this earth for a reason, then therein one would strive to want to "make the world a better place" by having lived, instead of just merely existing, while in constant pursuit of self-gratification.

Yes we are born free. This doesn't mean we are born without some intrinsic obligation toward the human race as we are all a part of it. What it should mean is that we are "Free-willed" as opposed to a "collective consciousness" as in the animal kingdom.

People ("sheeple") are following causes blindly, not exactly with a sense of purpose other than to be a part of a collective "group think". The absence of a belief system encourages them to follow blindly - as it puts the "self" in the forefront - which leads to the feelings of entitlement, self-absorption, envy, etc.

During the 60's and 70's, "Group Consciousness" was heavily spouted and touted by the "age of Aquarius new-agers" (anyone remember all that "we are one" "hands across the world" stuff....) Collective energy can be a powerful thing, addicting as heck, but it is only through individuality where the lightening bolts of insight, power and greatness can strike.

I have long believed mankind's evolutionary mind was not yet ready for all the technology dumped on us at record-breaking speed. For most of society, the development of the spiritual plane had not yet caught up with the mental plane; the vulnerability within this imbalance became the keyhole to Pandora's box.

All that said, kudos to Adam Carolla. He never has been one to mince words.
Star and flag for the OP.
