I had a friend from high school who went to school and got his computer programming degree. Once he finished, he looked at the job listings and said "this doesn't pay enough." An entry level computer programmer and he wanted to make 6 figures.So I called him out on it and he tells me "I dont want to do programming anymore. I want to be a butcher on a ship cause I can wear a cool chain mail vest."He then proceeded to live with his parents and he is now 43.Yeah...
I have a Masters and couldn't get a job in the US, I now live in South East Asia. Millennials are not lazy boomers messed up the economy. We have higher test scores and lower crime rates than you when you were young. You Generation X people got addicted to crack, drove up the murder rate and now you have the gall to lecture us.
@Jackblue Unlike you, I cite my points. With you being intelligent, I assumed you would see that what I said applies as a whole. Obviously not every single person is lazy. Still, how can you argue the point I made about more people living with their parents than alone or with a spouse in 150 years? Now think what has occurred during your growing up that no other generation experienced? Think hard. What would you be doing if you had no internet? You might be going to the mall to buy clothes. To Best Buy to get electronics, Barnes and Noble for books. The library to study. Playing outside. Yeah, more crime makes sense.Now everything is at the tip of your fingers. You don’t think that makes a difference with laziness?When I was younger, being sent to your room was a punishment. Not anymore. If we’re addicted to crack, you think that exempts you from being addicted to anything? How bout social media? All these places are loaded with people taking selfies galore. Echo chambers on forums and Twitter, Apps to meet up and fuck. Women masturbating on onlyfans. Guys jacking off to endless porn. How would you like the pandemic if their was no internet? Sitting at home. What would you do for entertainment?I personally don’t care what you may think of my generation. I can take it. I focus on myself, family and my world. I only have a 4 year, but have been very successful with stocks.

Right, but I also heard that it only takes a dedicated minority to change things.
What will you do to deal with this coming dystopia?
Damn dude they got you brainwashed good.
@ChefPapiChulo The only one who is brainwashed is you.
Nice one buddy
Millenials are useful idiots but boomers are called boomers for a reason
It was theorized that the gen z was gonna be the most conservative (or maybe it was republican) young generation since the baby boomers. I don't know how true that is anymore, unfortunately. My sister is a left wing extremist and a millennial. She says that the left hasn't gone far enough left yet and thats why things are in the shitter.
Maybe generation Alpha might be and don't listen to Chef Boyardee
@tiajoka Eh, might depend on where you live. Or the conservative side of Gen Z might have merely gotten more vocal. Maybe it is true to a smaller degree, but it's overly exaggerated.
@KlinkyCoder yeah, that's why I'm saying I don't think its too true anymore. They just got like that for a bit because if all the wreckt feminist videos 🤣
So... we shouldn't blame anyone in any shape or form but boomers are too old to hold responsibility and your generation is screwed and adhering to old rules. Kinda sounds like you went immediately to blaming other generations before even finishing your own paragraph lol
I am working with your sense if boomers are to blame we ain’t going anywhere there is no crime committed our generation is technically screwed because of things like climate change which by the way we contribute to just as much and maybe worse for example phones the resources we use in phones and how we throw them away to get new ones before they ever get old is insane. Each generation has harmed the environment in some sort and we choose to adhere to societal norms the older generations caused for example the class struggle we use their exact old system still to this day. If we want change we should work on it rather than pointing fingers into not even specific individuals but generations sounds stupid asf like whom are we suing in court if this was a thing.
How are you working with my sense? I haven't blamed a single generation in this thread. I never even said you had to pick one of the options. I do this quite often to see how many choose the option not provided. Don't believe me? Go look at some of my other polls. I specifically put in the comment section that I was happy for those who didn't select an option I provided. I am a firm believe in people thinking for themselves and not just going with the options in front of them and just using original thought. Don't get me wrong, picking an option provided is fine too, but just I always find kinship with those who pick the unwalked path and can provide valid and rational thought behind why. It gives me an opportunity to learn new things.
I am not attacking you. You might wanna read my comments again too. They are general statements and a participation in the conversation nothing personal.
The oldest doesn't necessarily mean doing the most damage. After a certain point their influence over society is severely lessened. We also have to take into account the effect social media has on our society and it's race to the bottom. I seriously doubt they are doing much on that front either.
The oldest generation right now has to have done the most damage. Not every person in the oldest generation, but as a whole, they have to have done the most damage. In 50 years, Millennials will have done the most damage, as a whole.You're not understanding what I'm saying. I'm not saying The Greatest Generation is currently, or has been the worst generation; I'm just saying after living for 90-110 years, by default, they have done the most damage.
The date ranges are fine. Different places have different dates so I just went with one of them.
Its not erasing our history, its not celebrating those who victimized innocents. You can still learn about them in history books just like you can with others. You don't need a statue of a racist standing in the town square on the other hand.
No worries! Ty for the vote
Soooo... all generations then? Snowflakes isn't a generation. You can have easily offended people from every age group who buy into "cancel culture" just as much as the next generation.
Not denying that, but who did the most?
oh well... there was a time right after WW2 in which a lot technological advances were achieved, many of them would have been great to avoid many of the problems and challenges and the things that are of detriment, today... especially when it comes to fuel, medicine and other kinds of energy production... in a simplistic way, we would have been absolutely free of fossil fuels today, but whoever was in charge back then decided that it was best to go into mass production and consumerism of all goods, things and services... since the 50's all the way to the 80's... that's where you can find the roots of consumerism and also the roots for all of the BAD aspects that globalization has brought up onto usbut, I would not go on to blame just one generation for this... everyone is on this, some just looked away, others ignored it, some actively worked to make it happen... and we all future and current generations have embraced it for the most partwe all have done or have NOT done something to make all things worse, and who did the most should not matter because the actual problem is not who started this, but who continues to perpetuate these bad things, which is... all of us, at the end
edit/update... lololol, Millennials got shunned...
Millennials are not to be blamed, ever!(I'm hoping if my wife ever sees this site she will be happy to see that)
Not so sure about the housing bubble, but I'd definitely give you the pandemic as being a definitive before/after of our lives
So you think it would "split" gen Z?
You can't blame the housing bubble on any one generation. It's down to bank lending policy and the way house ownership = wealth.
Nope thats a myth
No it’s not, I’ve evaluated and it’s obvious today
Its not. You’ve drank the right wing propaganda koolaid
When's the last time you were in school? The only propaganda is on any right wing news media channels stating this about colleges. I've checked schools local to me in ny and don't see progressive hate propaganda in the curriculum.
Your generation had it hard growing up. I heard parents at that time when you were a child did actually discipline their kids and respect for adults actually did exist. Now a days gen Z think it's all about them and they think they know everything.
@Alwayreckles93 You are correct. My father was a WWII Bomber Pilot.
@dray995 be constructive or stay out
@Ez-Bri-ZDon’t be rude!
Yeah, exactly my point. Don't be rude to others. Be constructive or ill just remove your posts
What? Who can afford to even do that?
@dray995 Anyone who already owns a home and is middle class
How many people do you know who can even afford to do that? Middle class isn’t rich.
@dray995 my parents did it, my boyfriends mum did it, many of my parents friends have second homes, a couple of family members they're all mid to upper middle class
@Razp_SorbetI think they’re rich, not Middle Class. The middle class now is barely getting by.
@dray995 they're not. I live in a different country.
Lol I forgot it.
It’s perfectly fine. We’re always blamed for everything anyway. It’s nice to be excluded for once.
Better forgotten than blamed
Each generation voted their governments in or didn't push hard enough to stop them.
It was an oversight, already addressed in updates. Timelines are fine. It depends on your source
Thats a mighty BIG oversite!
I blame the millennials for making me overlook them lol jk
That's a pretty good comeback I'll give you that
But they still aren't old enough to have caused as much damage as the Silent, and Greatest generations. It's literally not possible due to the age difference alone. When we're 100 years old, we would have created the most chaos. I actually think our generation is more greedy by the way.
@WowwGirl they killed Jesus
Where’d my comment go?
@dray995 did you check under the couch or in-between the cushions?
🤣 that was funny
Simple oversight. I just missed it while copypasting
Got it. They get my vote.
Nope, you're 62. Sorry, but as a representative of Generation X (the best generation, of course) I do not accept your application.
@Silas_314 I reject your reality and substitute my own.
Well, that's what a lot of people are doing these days :D
