Grumbling About Millennials

 


Almost every day, I see a post on Facebook of someone complaining that millennials are over-privileged and want to succeed but they don’t want to work hard for it. It is one of the most ironic things. You see all of these posts, and realize all of these people are using a social media site created by a millennial, Mark Zuckerburg.

You will hear people talking about how the music of today’s generation is bad, yet the music industry of today is the most diverse it has ever been. I’m sorry you didn’t get the chance to grow up on hip-hop, rap or modern pop music, because it’s really good. And the artists in this genre work just as hard as your favorite artists did.

People from generations before talk about how millennials are too attached to their phone, video games or the internet, all while they sit in front of the television the entire day. I would argue that being on the internet and playing video games has made my generation much more intelligent, critically thinking, and more socially broad. If it weren’t for the internet, I wouldn’t know half of the things I do, whether it be history, mathematics, or politics. It has been an outlet for me and many others in my generation to grow into a well-rounded individual.

Yes, some millennials are privileged and aren’t hard workers, or whatever you want to say. But isn’t there a group of these people in every generation? Please don’t label my generation “the worst generation” because we are succeeding differently than your generation did, because in reality many of us are working just as hard as those who that came before us.
