Here are Western Cultural Generations. Japan and Asia and portions of Europe will have their own generational definitions based on major cultural, political, and economic influences.
The Lost Generation –
The Generation of 1914
The Interbellum Generation
The Greatest Generation
The Silent Generation
Baby Boomer Generation
Generation X (Baby Bust)
Generation Y –
The Millennials –
iGen / Gen Z
(*if still alive today)
Note: Dates are approximate and there is some overlap because there are no standard definitions for when a generation begins and ends.
I LOVE Generation Z, they are like a cool drink of water after wandering the barren desert created by a group suffering delusions of self grandiosity. It that Harsh? Oh hell yeah, but how else can you explain the tantrum that was thrown on January 20th after Donald Trump’s inauguration?
When a reporter asked a random Millennial why he was destroying property near Union Station in Washington DC, his response was that they were reacting to Trump becoming president. When the reporter asked him if he voted, his answer was NO!
That is what I am talking about! I have not seen any other group act like spoiled brats upset for not getting their way. I mean seriously: WTF?!
Is it just me or does Generation Z have it so together that they have commentators on FOX News running scared and twisting in the wind?
In fact Laura Ingraham of FOX went as far as to attack a young man named David Hogg for failing to get into the college of his choice with a 4.1 GPA; really Laura? That is what you resort to?: Trying to embarrass some0ne with a 4.1 GPA? Now granted Laura Ingraham is NOT a Millennial, but her right wing-nut caters to many of them in her broadcasts.
Generation Z seems to have it more together than the Millennials ever did, in fact Millennials wasted NO time in telling people that they better be treated right or else Donald Trump will be president.
So instead of calling me a ‘Snowflake’ or anything pejorative just remember that I don’t need another reason as to why many Millennials are so despised.
