A Baby Boomer reveals a telling blindness to why the next generation is different from his own:
But this report makes clear that Millennial ties to the core human institutions that have sustained the American experiment — work, marriage and civil society — are worryingly weak.
When millennials think of marriage, they also worry about divorce. When they think of careers, they think of what will happen when the economy crumbles beneath their feet and they have to make a new plan on the fly. When they think of religion, they think of conflating intolerance with morality and struggling to adapt to a changing world. When we think of government, we think of corruption, unfairness and greed.
In short, oh perfect Baby Boomer, we don’t trust many of the hallmarks of society that you hold so dear because they don’t seem all that stable to us. Perhaps like every generation before, the previous generation has left us a world to which we turn a skeptical eye.
Does that mean we are doomed? No. It just means that as we elect our own leaders, as we forge our own careers and marriages, as we create our own social bonds, they will appear different and scary to you. That’s just part of getting older. You will be okay.
Please stop writing about how we’ll ruin everything; you’ve already done a bang up job of that.
About to close it up, hoping for no fire…
The machine is coming together…
