The Millennials Plight – Fight or Flight? No one knows.
Posted On July 17, 2012
Wonderful column on the plight of the Millennials in this time of “new normal.” Worth the read. What the author doesn’t mention is that the Millennials were raised to follow agenda and rules. They have. And now this. Bitterness? You’d better believe it. How will their bitterness manifest itself in ten, fifteen, or twenty years? No one knows. It could be a whole new level of activism to change their status quo. It could be reverting to their Boomer parent’s days of “tune in, turn on, and drop out.” When confronted with this size of an uphill battle, fight or flight takes over. Let’s hope they fight.
And I wonder – why aren’t the Boomers being held accountable for the wreck they’ve put their children into? No one ever mentions the Boomers and the self serving decisions they’ve made. The Boomers are on track to be the first generation to leave the country a worse place for their kids. Where is the outcry?
Eager for your thoughts…
