Generational Discord

The Millennial generation is viewed with disdain by most older adults.  They are seen as entitled snowflakes that will never accomplish anything noteworthy in their lives.

My generation (Generation X) was the first generation to have access to video games and computers in our homes.  As a result we were called lazy and worthless.

This was also the time of the “Satanic Panic.”  We were accused of listening to devil worshipping music and of becoming Satanist in large numbers.  However, Generation X grew up and became productive members of society.

My mom’s generation (Baby Boomers) were known for their anti-government protest.  They were called hippies that only cared about drugs, sex, and rock-n-roll.  They also grew up and became productive members of society.

I admit the Millennials are not perfect, but neither was any generation before them.  They are currently being ridiculed as were their parents and grandparents, but they too will one day become productive members of society.
