“Millennial”, why does that word make me grit my teeth?
Recently I saw a news clip of a Veteran trying to get millennial Pokemon players away from a Veterans Memorial where their stupid characters were placed in a virtual game world. One millennial can be heard saying, “I’d take a punch to get these crazy Veterans out of here”.
For the Veteran his REAL world consisted of men with guns, bayonets and explosives killing and being killed, fighting to the death. A world of blood, body parts and stench. A world of grief, loss and joy. A man who would sacrifice his life for his brother.
Our millennial Pokemon player, is a self absorbed man/woman child. Protected buy their parents, told how wonderful they are for ordinary accomplishments, living with parents and on health care insurance until the age of 26.
Millennial’s who think sending/receiving email and text is serious work; who would pee their pants in a serious face to face confrontation.
Every year at graduation we hear some esteemed person say “the youth are our future”! What a bunch of crap! The problem is these adult children believe it. Our problem is, we promoted it.
The world is on fire and we are handing it of to a generation of weak, ill informed children without the life skills to recognize a dangerous world and expect them to work magic through the awesomeness of their personality and mastery of social media.
Millennial’s, the slavish fans of Bernie Sanders who think they deserve free stuff because they can’t be expected to demonstrate real skills that employers actually find valuable.
Millennial’s, it’s all about ME….ME…..ME and if you think that’s wrong it’s still all about ME.
Me-Me-Mellinnials, Trouble is the name of the train coming for you. Your social media, feelings and virtual games will not save you. Neither will your inflated opinion of yourself. You will sell yourself into economic slavery as you choose the Government to be your next set of parents. The Government as a parent thinks of you as a bastard child and will give you nothing of lasting good.
