  1. Thank you for sharing with us
    how can one help to correct this mind set of our indoctrinated children
    me thinks recovery can begin with the parents, at a stable commutative, well balanced home…

    Peace

  2. This video gave me the weirderst feeling. very sad but kind of relieved by the charisma of the speaker and his perspective. I am born in 94. My parents were very hard on me (not complaining, im actually grateful and have said so for years) and basically the opposite of most parents of my friends, but even so I still am pretty accurately described through this video. I want to be a productive member of society but i feel like im pretty aware of how things really are and find my outlook incredibly bleak and depressing and my parents just want me to work 9-5 making money not thinking but im so scared of my life just being “fine” and monotonous every day for forever. the worst part about that are there are so many problems facing humanity that i genuinely care about and i just have to ignore them in order to build any semblance of a life. maybe im just imagining problems but shits confusing. anyhow this was a great share thank you

    • Thank you for sharing your story.

      I shared this video on account of the tremendous compassion and wisdom that the speaker imparts to his audience. Too often the media (and ALT media) are quick to be dismissive of the Millennial generation, calling them “snowflakes.” However, if I find one fault with the speaker, it’s that he seems too willing to let Millennials off the hook for taking responsibility for their own lives as adults, blaming parents, technology, attentions span, and the workplace. Yes, all these factors have contributed to the situation, and it is so important to be aware of these factors as a society, and learn from them. However, every generation has faced their own unique disadvantages in their external environment. This is nothing new. As a member of Generation X, I faced my own unique challenges, yet I was always grateful that my generation (in the US) had never been drafted into a war.

      Every generation has had their own set of challenges and benefits. The Millennial generation is coming of age in an era of unprecedented transformation and challenge, having to deal with all of the things that previous generations have swept under the carpet. And yet there has never been a generation growing up on this planet that has been as valued as the Millennials. The fact that this discussion is even taking place is a testament to this.

      So I would say, don’t give up hope. Search for the bigger picture. Your generation is here facing these challenges at this point in hisory for a reason. Find your own individual purpose. Don’t seek to find it handed to you in the workplace, but rather find how you might bring your own unique purpose to the workplace. It takes great courage to step outside of the assembly line of life and be true to your authentic self. This has been true for thousands of years.

      Here is a little video for inspiration when things seem hopeless.
