I love it when the older generation, take shots at the younger generation for going to college and getting an education. In my country. This wagging finger generation, enjoyed the benefits of free University education, a job for life, cheap housing and cheap energy and food prices. Now they all need caring for in one form or another in their cushy retirement.
Pretty much leaving one type career option for young people as a low paid care workers. Wiping the butts and cleaning up the mess of the older generation. In more ways than one.

Good luck to you, and everyone else in the younger generation. Like I said, I'm 33 at the time of this writing, but I know what you're all going through and its painful, and you feel betrayed and lied to by the older generation and the government who fed you this illusion of "go to college, get an education, blah blah blah" and then callously shrug their shoulders and call you spoiled or entitled brats when your degree and your schooling can't help you even to get a job bagging groceries.

Everyone is entitled to live a good life.......... Pie in the sky rainbows pooping chocolate.
I hate to tell you guys this but life is what you make out of it. And history has shown over and over again when the government helps out the poor people will turn to fascism. How the heck do you think a guy like Hitler got into power?
OK this is an example of an absolutely asinine belief. If you think the "government" is causing all of this then you obviously skipped your economics classes.
Damn man, have you even looked at what the IBS, IMF and central banks have been doing? Do you really think the government is in control? If you do then rock on as you have no clue.

My message was a simple one when people beg for change and handouts the governments will listen. Germany was able to fall into tyranny because people needed change and were starving to death. And when times got better they did not want them to change back. They turned a blind eye out of apathy and fear.

Your generation is faced with a rebuilding effort. May have to literally start from the ground up like your great grandparents did. It has cycled around to this point again. Maybe get acquainted with hand tools all over again so to speak. The education as economic stabilizer dream is faltering and we cant expect them to warn us. Big ol paper mills. Might have to settle into something that may take a decade or more to start showing results above the survival zone similar to what happened after the great depression.

Don't let our GDP fool you, the only reason it continues to rise is because the Fed injects large sums of money into the economy every month. GDP hasn't reflected the state of our economy for a while now. Looking at the national GDP as a measure of economy is the same as looking through a heavily tinted window to get an idea of what's inside a room. Sure you can get an idea, but you won't be able to see everything and some things can be drastically different.
