Millennials Are The New Boomers
There is something Millennials and Boomers have in common that makes them far more alike than either generation are comfortable examining. Faith.
Boomers and Millennials alike are true believers. They are without skepticism. Whether we are talking about the centralized government, the media or panels of experts — both generations have an overabundance of faith in those systems. They ignore fundamental, foundational issues of institutionalized power, and instead waste their efforts trying to tweak it slightly more to their advantage.
When the Stockholm Syndrome Awards Ceremony is held, both groups will walk away with armloads of participation trophies and the smugness reserved only for true believers and the mighty faithful. The world may burn, but they will vote on which fuel to throw on it, and fight over how the fuel is distributed.
Meanwhile Gen X-ers will be standing around with marshmallows on sticks, watching you morons fight it out. We are not amused, but we can’t stop watching, either. This is how the world will end, not with a whimper, but with a chorus of fools cheering for the bang. Fighting amongst themselves only to determine whether it will be more bass or more treble.
