From the Baby Boomers to Generation Z no single generation has ever been perfect since those that have come before them have always done something or acted in some way that has made their elders shake their heads in consternation. For many of us that were born before the early 80’s at this point it is Millennials that seem to vex us the most, as they have become the prime target for a lot of ire and irritation. But honestly and truly the lot of them aren’t as bad people might think.
There are some real prize-winners when it comes to a lack of brains obviously, as some of the more idiotic internet challenges have shown, but there are still a good number of Millennials that have taken the lessons handed down from the generations of before and applied them to help in their own way to keep the world running. Look at it this way, if Millennials were all avocado toast-eating, Starbucks-drinking, mindless automatons that shoved condoms up their noses and ate a steady diet of Tide pods then our world would already be in decline.
For as many truly moronic members of any generation that exist there are still plenty that strive to make the world a better place or at least keep it running. Baby Boomers and Gen Xer’s, y’all don’t have a lot of room to talk when it comes to doing stupid things in your youth. Even without the internet a lot of those within these generations were able to do some pretty insane acts that made no sense to anyone. As a member of the Xennials, the in-between generation that was announced fairly recently, I fully understand that we take on the characteristics of the two generations that bracket our own, but again, like anyone else, there are mentally and ethically-deficient individuals in every camp.
Don’t point the finger if you can’t see the fault in your own generation.
