Good take on the Millennial Generation

Millennials, like all young-adult generations, have been demonized and denigrated by older generations. They have been called useless, dependent, entitled hipsters, and much worse.

But Millennials aren’t the first young adult generation to be regarded badly by their elders. Before them, back in the ’80s and ’90s (while Millennials were being born), Gen-Xers were dismissed by older generations as lazy, nihilistic, uninvolved slackers. Before them, back in the ’60s and ’70s, Boomers were regarded as rebellious, hedonistic, disobedient troublemakers who only cared about getting high and railing against the establishment.

Millennials have been called narcissistic, entitled, spoiled, and dependent on the parents who raised them well into their 20s and even 30s.

Let me correct a few things here.

I am not really into the US politics. They concern me as much as an episode of “House of Cards” would. But, I found this parody interesting enough to share.

I’m Hillary goddamn Clinton. I’m a political prodigy, have been since I was 16. I have an insane network of powerful friends. I’m willing to spend the next eight years catching shit on all sides, all so I can fix this fucking country for you.

Thank you Bernie Sanders!

A San Francisco voter thanks members of the Sanders campaign for their work.

“We will not allow right-wing Republicans to control our government. And that is especially true with Donald Trump as the Republican candidate…”

“We understand that our mission is more than just defeating Trump, it is transforming our country,” (Sanders) said. “It is not acceptable that the top one-tenth of 1 percent owns as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent. We’re gonna change that.”

(Sanders) also mentioned the importance of breaking up Wall Street banks, ending “a corrupt campaign finance system,” and enacting immigration and criminal justice reform. Bernie Sanders, June 07, 2016

To reform the system we need to end the corrupt economics of regressive  Social Darwinism which means casting our votes to remove republicans from power at every level of government.

Thank you Bernie Sanders for opening a public debate that is at least 20 years over-due.
