Kids These Days Read & download â PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Everyone knows what's wrong with Millennials Glenn Beck says we've been ruined by participation trophies Simon Sinek says we have low self esteem An Australian millionaire says Millennials could all afford homes if we'd just give up avocado toast Thanks millionaire This Millennial is here to prove them all wrongMillennials have been stereotyped as lazy entitled narcissistic and immature We've gotten so used to sloppy generational analysis filled with dumb clichés about young people that we've lost sight of wha. I ve never been one to blame millennials or make fun of them I interact with a lot of them as an educator and I ve been nothing but impressed They re better than my generation This book is a bleak look at what millennials have to deal with but that s not why it s relevant It s important because the book takes a macro look at the economic trends that have resulted in this generation That and the excessive policing and drugging but Harris claims that all of that stems from the exploitation of labor by capital I think he s mostly right Millennials are going to be worse off than their parents and grandparents generations because wealth ineuality has increased drastically So the few that win will win big and the rest won t However something else that is very millennial is the nihilism and pessimism of the generation They have every reason to be angry but Harris offers no hope of change at all His solution section is the most depressing part of the book neither voting or protesting or volunteering will work Millennials are being told that they are screwed no matter what they do So if this book is a Marxist criticism of capitalism there is neither opiate for the masses or workers uniting at the end Maybe because I am not a millennial but I think that s wrong There are solutions He laments the end of unions why isn t that one option He says Sanders couldn t win because they will never let him win Way too conspiratorial He also peddles in the DNC stealing elections thing I guess this is where I break from this group I was not a bernie or bust and I still believe in the system Maybe they are right and we are wrong but what are the implications that this whole generation has completely lost trust and faith in institutions Maybe they are right because institutions have let them down but it seems like the options are checking out or fascism This is an important book but I hope there are like it that are less bleak and conspiracy theory oriented
