Take it up with the evidence I have presented.

You can get butthurt about it or influence others not to be fatass whiners who demand society bend the knee to their capricious whims.

Do republicans do anything except whine these days? Everything is everybody else's fault. Blame the youth, misrepresent atheism, lie about it. It's the norm. Victim playing all day LOL.


Please point out the lies.

But it can and is empirically linked to this generation.

Anecdotal evidence notwithstanding, the trendlines are clear.

But with the state of the world today, glad I don't have kids.

No hope then.

Kids are our only hope.

People without them often think kids are not people. They're wrong.


With the way conservatives are blaming and ragging on kids today....I stand by my decision.

btw....I know kids are people. I taught HS and JC for 4 years and I don't think the broad brush generalizations about a generation is valid.

Whine festivals are so rrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

These are mostly not kids.

These are adults. We have this image in our minds that millennials are children. That is only true with ragard to coping skills, social skills, work/life skills and has nothing at all to do with age.

This generation has stretched adolescence well into their 30s and this is a real and serious problem for the wellbeing of our nation.

I'm a parent myself and am keenly aware of the toxic environment our children have to navigate.

I'm at work now and as I look out the trailer window, I see most of the crews are comprised of millineals, working their asses off, dedicated, and ambitious. I feel that when the geezers die off the country will still be in competent hands.

I know this is just anecdotal evidence. But I guess we see what we want to see....

I hope you and your family had a Merry Christmas!!

It is just anecdotal evidence.

Which does not negate empirical statistical evidence.

I held the same belief when I and other millennials were competently running an air assault unit in and out of combat.

But that is an anecdotal bubble. A bubble in which I existed and even wrote a thread about how I believed my generation was a fount of hope.

Reality says otherwise.

Here's the thread:

It's amazing how time and data can change a person's world view.

Christmas was fantastic as I hope it was for you and yours.

It is just anecdotal evidence.

I sit there as a parent at my son's martial arts school and watch parents bring in kids. I watch those kids start, get their parents to sign them in for at least 6 months, and after about 2 months of diminishing attendance, you never see those kids again, but their parents are paying for 6 months.

I don't blame the kids. I blame their parents for letting them quit so easily. That pattern starts early, and how you're raised is part of it.

We warned our son before we signed him in that if we did it, he was going to go for all six months, but at the end of it, if he didn't want to go more, he didn't have to do any more. So we told him to make *sure* he liked it ... enough to do it for half a year.

That may be true. I have no evidence to counter otherwise. I'm just saying I do know people in that demographic who do not demonstrate any of those things we talked about. I know people older and younger than that who do.

Could there be a much higher percentage in that group than others? Very well could be. I am simply trying not to broad brush. I could be naive in that approach.

If you look at the larger picture...

How do you expect the kids to act in a culture where corruption is king, finger pointing is sop, our hero's are violent athletic fools constantly worshiped on a profit motivated media. Our leaders are puppet clowns.. Teachers, scientist, and pointy headed intellectuals are branded as snowflakes and scorned. Technology is the New GOD, a direct decedent of more, more, more corporate greed, ritual consumerism at the alter of crony capitalism.

That's not the millineals fault! They just mimic what the boomers world provided.

I share in the blame as a greedy media whore.

Maybe bringing back child labor at the age when they grow some fuzz will shred that fat, and make then learn the value of the dollar, crushing their dreams would bring back order like the good old days?

Worked for the Spartans an looked at they did on tv, an mother birds do it, so they have to be right.

Why is it bad to live with one own mother, when the women says there should stay anyways? Makes no sense.

I expect mine to act with honesty and integrity because if it's no excuse to lose those values just because others have jettisoned them.

If we're ever to change it, it has to start somewhere, one person at a time if needs be.

Generation 1: "My god your doing it all wrong; here just let me do it the right way"

Generation 2: " "

Generation 1: "Why are you so hopeless?"


Thing is, that is how I learned. I certainly didn't know how to replace a starter on my car until my dad showed me. Emulation is how we learn.

Nothings really changed....youtube is chock full of videos that people emulate to learn stuff from. And its obviously a rather popular way of doing it. So i fail to see the point of your pseudo example here.


But there's a major lack of a moral compass too you must admit. Speaking of YouTube, you ever notice all the thousands of uploaders making tens of thousands of not hundreds on stuff like, well there's the most popular, lists. Top blank lists. They just take ten other videos and splice them together and collect money for it. Or they will take a bunch of pictures off google images to make a slideshow then read the wikipedia entry for that person word for word and call themselves a historian and talk nonstop in the comments about how they do this for "work" and need not just the YouTube income but Patreon donations to makes ends meet. To my generation every last one of them is what we called instead a CRIMINAL and a PLAGIARIZER.

And then you must figure in the stupidity cuz they just can't connect how that could be sonif you call them out. Me, I can't help but correct them by the hundreds when they call themselves musicians or pianists. Oh yes it's not my place to decide who can take on such a moniker but you don't understand. These are millennials who like music as if that's a rare trait and so they download an app that hooks to an electric piano or has a special diagram and they "learn" one song at a time by having the keys light up that they then press to make a song in the way we played whack a mole. They couldn't pick middle C out of a drawing of three different notes, tell you what a rest is, or play anything without liht up keys but sorry, I say it's factually pathetic for them when they can't do a thing without their app telling them when to push what who play through a song, one of none they cal push keys along to, and host a thousands long forum below the video where they answer questions and give advice as a piano player and it's ALWAYS wrong. In fact I don't think I have ever seen em get one right. And just like on every TV show about singing the number one mistake and a huge pet peeve of mine is the fact they call anything off key "flat" as if those things are synonymous. Forget if the note is a step and a half sharp, it doesn't match the right one it's someone who is singing flat. Ok that's nitpicking but seriously. They really don't get how they differ from a classically trained pianist and harpist and bouzoukstis and guitarist and cellist who can play on cruise ships or at weddings and themselves, we are both pianists. Pffft...and I always thought I had beef and a lack of respect for tableture...

Some are living in a semi hopeless situations. Maybe they were the kids of a solid middle class parents that fell on hard times in the downturn. They saw their parents lose everything they had worked their whole life for and it forged their outlook on life.
Their parents divorced with the hardships of economics and other variables, they weren't able to get to university like they maybe wanted to. And now because rent is so high they can never save for a house. Their motivation is depleted by mild depression. I am not from that generation but somebody explain that to me once...it makes sense.
The destruction of the solid middle class has effected this generation, now the generation that came after them the "Z" seem to be more optimistic they are adapting better.

Some of the things you mentioned has alot to do with the indoctrination of Aleister Crowley's thelema and the beliefs of the new age of Aquarius movement. There is another word for it, satanism. They do not believe in morals, and believe they can do whatever they want without any consequences.

You can thank Paul the apostle for that though, because the guy contradicted Yahshua(Jesus) and spoke out against Gods laws on some occasion. (Though in others he contradicted himself and said that you reap what you sow. but Paul was filled with self contradictions.) Luscis trust and Aleister crowley along with many luciferians revere Paul the apostle for this reason.

Meanwhile Yahshua kept reminding his followers to keep the commandments/Natural Divine Law. It IS the Holy Grail, the path for salvation. You cannot remove morals from society, doing so would cause that society to fall into chaos and apathy.



For those interested in Obtaining the Holy Grail, here is the Cheat Sheet Mark V

The only cure for lawlessness is lawfulness. The more society has morals, the more stronger that society becomes. There is a reason why there is a moral decline in society. Its because the deep state is trying to remove God's influence from this world.

I've no reason to be "shamed".

The kids I helped raise are all actually adults, with adult attitudes concerning earning ones place in the world.

Society owes no one a damned thing. The sooner people realize this, the better off they'll be. I see it played out every damned night at work.

Where I work, there are three temp agencies that provide workers, and there's a group of full timers, which is what I am. I started as a temp, and worked my ass off, got noticed and was offered a full time position. It ain't much, but it's mine, and fairly earned, and opportunities for further advancement are there.

I was asked last week by a temp who started before I did, "How did you become full time before I did, I've been here longer."

My answer was not conducive to making a Christmas card list...

"Sonny, I'll show you why. See our carts there? We've been at this for about five hours now, I'm on my 30th pick. You're still on your first dozen...does that answer your question?" "If you spent less time talkin' up the girls, and more time working...something good might happen for you." "Try it."

Damned if I'll apologize for being willing to work. But my plans kinda require that I do.

Death glare was his only response. ...and there are many just like him. They want the good things, but won't/aren't willing to work for it.

Now that's not to say they're all like that, because they're not. I've seen others who can work my 50+ year old butt into the ground...as they should--they're, in many cases, a third my age. Doesn't change the fact that I wish I was that quick still...


So you outpaced someone you have years of experience on and that somehow makes them inferior for looking at you like a self serving asshole when you flaunt it?

Whoopity do for you. Teach the newbie to fish.

I saw this today and I think it speaks to the points both of you are making. It is a short Omeleto video.

I have seen these children in action, more disturbing is that I have seen their parents in action.

The 21 year old does as little as possible and has expressed a desire to live off the government if it were possible.


This is exactly what my nephew told me when I asked him what was his plans for the future. I was so glad my Brother was present at the time. He asked his son where he had gotten the idea that the government would provide for him. My nephew said he was taught that at school. We didn't believe him at first, we thought he just misunderstood what the teacher had said, until we found out that the school was teaching him so crazy socialist crap.

My Bother moved him to another school, but the whole agenda is about making a generation of people with no hope and no ambition, that can be easily controlled.
