Holly bat # batman, I was born in 1982. I never knew I was a millennial.

I suppose I must act appropriately from now on, and now that I know. Its good to have generational warfare from now and again. At one time it used to be the norm, were the young would oust the old and boy were those fun times.

I have not issue with this socialist movement, even though its just more of the same old. Hey at least it gives people something to do, not like they can rub there brain cells together and think of a better movement. But then again even the older generations were just more meat bots in there movements, have you looked at some of the # they believed in?

Its plain brain dead tarded the stupid # they believed and got behind. And well, anything can work if enough people believe it works. The past generations are nothing if not prof of that.

Also the human brain does start to degenerate and rot after a certain age. Older for the most part does not mean wiser, but it does mean older as in certain parts aren't working like they once were or should.

Just more self serving righteous people who not only think there right, but want to be right. Its like one long loop were as soon as one walks out, another that is exactly the same walks in. There really is nothing new to see in this whole thing.

Ya see. Why aren't more old farts like you. Not every young person or 30 something is slacking, far from it. Pretty hard to generalize a whole dam sleuth of people and generation. But it can be done. Or at least in this we agree, on other things. Pretty sure not, or waste my time bothering.

But the truth is, no one in the whole history of the world has seen eye to eye. So why do people every #ing generation suddenly believe that it will start to now? Do they truly believe they are original or the ones?

Has nobody heard of the political section of ATS? Or how about every single other thread or basically everything else out there in the. Who here or in this thread can say that they could see the world through there grandfathers eyes? Anybody that says so. Is full of #.

There really is nothing new to see in this whole thing.


But it is new and the evidence shows it.

We're in steep decline and it isn't a political or philosophical phenomenon entirely anymore. It is also manifesting itself physically, psychologically, and epistemically.

I recommend the book Make Your Brain Smarter by neuroscientist Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman. In it, she discusses how vastly different the thought processes of most millennials and zoomers are. That in many cases, these generations cannot think for themselves because they rely on rote memory or the complete replacing of valuable experiential knowledge and the ceding of problem-solving skills to mere search words. They don't feel they have to actually 'know' anything.

This is exemplified in their inability to cope even with small stresses as shown in the articles I linked in the OP, as well as the outsized representation of the tendency toward escapism. That escapism, "know-nothingness", and the nihilism it inculcates leads to a society that accepts as a dominant cultural feature the postmodernist view of moral relativism and shifting interpretations of reality to fit narratives contrary to scientific discovery.

This idea that there is nothing new here ignores all the new things we've found as a result of our use of technology and the epistemic, experiential (transmission of memetic knowledge), and social consequences of these massive paradigm shifts. This creates more and more dependent people who will continue to hold less and less knowledge until they are easily controlled and led to the slaughter by the very information they look up and accept uncritically as fact.

We have a problem we've never dealt with before and we can't fix it by pretending nothing has changed.

Everything has changed and we haven't caught up.

So what caused these young humans to be so absolutely hopeless when it comes to basic life and workplace skills? Was it something in the water?


Who knows. One major difference is the internet. But i can't fix the blame there with any reason or logic, so who really knows.

Something is different. I have 2 kids. The older, 26, is a masters candidate funding his own life and education by working as a teacher. The 21 year old does as little as possible and has expressed a desire to live off the government if it were possible. Both raised by the same parents under the same rules. Maybe its personality? I don't know.
5 years could actually make a difference from education unless they went to private schools. Common Core is the most destructive in terms of programming. The schools have actively replaced real science with crazy climate change nonsense and the educators have overlaid all kinds of social programming over math, science and English.

...and you totally missed the point.

Your world, and place in it, are what you make of it--or don't.

No one else is responsible for it.

Exactly, if you don't master knowledge for yourself but tamely accept it is what Google tells you it is, you have the perfect MInistry of Truth scenario from 1984.

But I'm sure none of the ones we're talking about have read it. They'll Google what I'm referring to, but who knows what Google is telling them it is these days. They could be at war with Eastasia for all we know.

I think the people who are boiling my arguments down to mere generation bashing (despite my membership in this generation) aren't seeing that.

They truly believe that this day is the same as any other and that no real generational changes have taken place. The "kids are alright" argument.

But they weren't alright and now we have data to show it.

Seems to me like we are willing participants in our own oppression.

The best part is its all the same stuff the GG's said to their boomer kids when the kids grew their hair out. It's the same things the boomers said to the x'ers after the boomers discovered Reagan. Hell, it's literally the same argument the good people of Athens used to compel Socrates to drink Hemlock.

The song remains insane.

This is the person who tells you there is no objective reality & as such no objective morality either. No "right and wrong" There are many of them. We call them Millennials and Gen Z. They have to think this way otherwise they can't justify their hypocritical actions & capricious demands. These are the people that vote for "Democratic Socialists".

They have no stake in the future. No posterity to answer to. They don't even believe there is a future and have sunk into nihilism:

Generation Hopeless

Forget lazy, self-centred or cocky — the truth about most millennials is they’re absolutely hopeless when it comes to basic life and workplace skills, experts say.


They are regularly advertised prepackaged excuses for continuing to not take the initiative, to let opportunity slip away, to refuse to grow the hell up! Watching life evaporate through Escapism:

Coping Through Escapism: New Study Reveals How Today's Youth Deals With Stress

A new study by PsychTests.com comparing coping styles of different generational groups reveals that younger people are more likely to resort to distraction to cope with difficulties in their life.


A massive generation who aren't having kids, are more obese than the last generation, & refuse to grow up, are now demanding socialism as if it would enable their laziness, escapism, & capriciousness. They are narcissistic and driven by impulsivity:

Millennials Are More 'Generation Me' Than 'Generation We,' Study Finds

Millennials, the generation of young Americans born after 1982, may not be the caring, socially conscious environmentalists some have portrayed them to be, according to a study described in the new issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.


They deride all tradition, think it their sworn duty to whine and complain about injustice they never lived & don't want to do anything about. But they can talk, make videos, & write tweets about what they "believe", what they are outraged by, or what they are fleetingly "inspired" by. It's a generation of hashtag activists demanding I accept destitution so corporations can afford to pollute more by forcing nonsense climate taxes & carbon credit schemes. They demand I accept twisted notions of gender, specifically with regard to children. They have the money for drag queen story hour where men flashing their genitals at children is considered ok but opposition to it is called bigotry:

Drag queen flashes young children at ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’

They demand I filter my worldview through the lens of postmodernism rather than the Enlightenment substrate that has led to the comfort they enjoy while dreaming up new ways to put the chains of servitude back on.

They cling to long-discredited political & economic ideologies. They flash the hammer & sickle proudly & demand the destruction of market economies from behind their Apple laptops on which they feed their porn addictions, engage in childish escapism, & make demands of society; those evil bourgeois people who want to raise families, contribute to their communities, & actually solve problems owe this defective generation something. When the good and honest acquiesce to this, is it over? No. The demands simply become ever more insatiable and irrational...Generation Mob always makes more demands.

The censoriousness of Generation Mob is another massive paradigm shift with which free-thinking people must now contend. This generation & the one after are driving forces in the degradation of free expression & speech...more unreasonable demands of reasonable people by unreasonable mobs.

The largest generation in American history. Among which the lowest of common denominators are leading the outrage mobs & representing districts in congress. A generation of know-nothing takers refusing responsibility for themselves or the messes they make. Zombies overwhelming us with sheer numbers. Nihilistic masturbators eating themselves to death, drowning the rest of us in their capricious & salty tears as revenge for having made sound choices of moral rectitude in our own lives. How dare we?



Society doesn't owe us anything, folks. Even that which is attained by the collective efforts or funds of society requires individual contribution & responsibility.

I believe in responsibility because it is the substrate by which our rights grow. I believe in accountability because it is the substrate by which our freedom grows. This generation. My generation...they don't believe in those things. Reality is a game of subjective interpretations to them & the means to any end are all treated equally regardless of who is trampled along the way to "progress".

This cannot continue or we will become a society of fat & lazy criminals allowing the eradication of whole groups to satiate our selfish desire to "have it my way". If you think we could never be that kind of society in the 21st century you are wrong. We are becoming that now. People are starting to thirst for radical change & the only way to get radical change is to kill your opposition. We may be seeing that dynamic playing out in Virginia.

It's time to take responsibility. There is no free nation without it.


I just don't want to classify a whole generation under one umbrella.

Each generation has their slackers, addicts, communists, rebels without a pulse etc.

The difference with this generation however is that there are a lot of old people from previous generations behind the scenes and in the spotlight all pushing and pulling for their attention in order to manipulate it.

Look at Weimar Germany before ww2 for example.

All excess and decadence and then came this "puritanical" reformation.

I have shown why this generation is different with verifiable data. You quoted the first post proving this. I recommend you read the supporting material.


That said, I do agree with the Weimar Republic analogy in general terms with regard to social degeneracy and it's trajectory toward fascism but only to a certain extent.

World War 2 was predicated by The Great War. The agreements made to "end the war" were the seeds sown and the Second World War was what the world reaped from that series of awful decisions.

There were few then with foresight. But for the few who did we would find striking prophecy:

Marshal Ferdinand Foch:
"This is not a peace. It is an armistice for twenty years".

20 years and just over 2 months later, the Second World War broke out, which I view (as much as the good Marshall Foch would) as a continuation of the First World War.

They trust there search engines to much you say?

Hmm! Well search engines can not be trusted and google while wise in its grasp of things. Is still just open to not only interpretation and misinterpretation, but much shenanigans.

But can you name and think of a single thing that people have not followed or believe in, for the past hundred years which wasnt? Or how about this, for the past all of human history? Which movements and believes were the right ones? Or was it all just madness no matter the cause, till eventually people settled down and got on with there lives.

Current crop of people want there cake and want to eat it to. In that there is nothing new. But then again, never got the point of that stupid saying anyways. There is no point in baking a cake if your not going to eat it. I suppose you can try and frame it on your wall.

You know, to show people your accomplishments. And if you can frame and hang a cake on a wall like a painting. I for one consider that quite and accomplishment, if? Albeit, kind of a stupid accomplishment.

As for technology changing things and mental states and even dare is say opinions and even the way data is processed. You dam skippy it is.

Fantastic post.

The answer is to educate your children properly from a young age to spot these lies and not pander to the crowd.

We will only stand for it so long before the real backlash.

Please don't post anymore pictures of Greta tho, that cretin is everything that's wrong with the world. I hope she chokes on a Tofu sandwich.

Greta is so infuriating because she castigates the world from a position of relative safety with regard to criticism due to her age and medical condition. She is nothing but a cudgel against the people; a weapon wielded by George Soros in his pursuit to become a specter that haunted the mind of George Orwell.

She is a perfect poster child for Generation Mob.

Kat Timpf wrote up a pretty distressing list of absurd woke/PC moments of the last decade. Each absurdity followed by even more egregious absurdities.

National Review

It's wasn't funny. I posted it because it is a list of examples of Generation Mob hurting people in real life. An aggregate example of the deranged mob mentality that has gripped our sociopolitical modus operandi. It is affecting our psychology and creating a society that is becoming more and more afraid of each other for fear of the Outrage Mob targeting them.

Political boycotts, enforcement of Orwellian Newspeak language changes like 'cigendered' and 'latinx' and the near-forced inculcation of nonsensical themes

For instance:
Transgender man gives birth to non-binary partner's baby with female sperm donor

That is the headline. The article isn't much better. There's also the claim that women aren't the only ones who get periods. This is a form of Orwellian Doublethink.

These people are literally The Party and they really love Big Brother.
