Generation Y: The most stupid generation so far

A very interesting article was raised over at news.com.au's site, regarding Generation Y. Oddly enough, I've thought for some time that Gen Y (mostly the mid to late Gen Y's) have ... some kind of "problem".

My team at work was made up mostly of Gen Xer's. The lot of us, despite differences at times, got along. We all "got" each other, we all behave well and respect others, and in the corporate world, we know there are things you do, and things you just don't do.

In recent times, we've had some turnover (probably about time I moved on as well) and lo and behold, an influx of Gen Y kids have come in. Each one is arrogant, has terrible work ethics, exhibits unacceptable workplace behaviour and is totally counterproductive. Pretty much every one of us Gen X'er's want to kick the living crap out of each and every Gen Y kid in our department.
I really feel that Gen Y (mid to late Gen Y) is the biggest disgrace our society has seen. They're lacking in intelligence & morals, have little to no ability to effectively self-manage themselves (and not just in work, but in a variety of situations). They are politically docile, linguistically inept, historically starved, and as selfish as can be, existing in an small bubble with very thick walls. Sure - they're technologically savvy. Woop-dee-fucking doo. That's not enough to be intelligent or an effective contribution to society.

Their culture is even more pathetic - countless brand advertisements convey a revolution. What fucking revolution? What are they rebelling against? Generation X, and most importantly, generations before Generation X did the all the work. Take our favourite bimbos Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie - the pinnacle of face-slapping to the defiant and strong women who burned their bras in 1968, these two stupid Gen Y idiots have successfully helped to bring women's stature in the 21st century back to that of the 1950's by promoting the demure, weak woman.
Gen Y is useless, quite simply. Cultureless, grey, shallow and completely directionless. Despite trying, I can't even get myself to have a conversation with most of them, they take the levels of stupidity to new heights. I feel embarrassed for them and even more so for their parents. How can anyone possibly raise their children like this?

The scariest thing of all is that this is the future of our country. One of these brainless dumbasses is going to be leading our country one day - how the hell are they going to do it? By crying when they don't get their way? Will they sulk in Question Time? Will they not respond to you unless you SMS them or befriend them on ShitSpace?

I agree on your post. I'm part of this Gen Y, and on a day to day basis, I lose hope for the future. I started to think how a true dumbass could be President 40-50 years from now. How spoiled and stupid my future kids will be, regardless of my interference. I can't be optimistic for anything.

Always wanted to hear the perspectives of an older generation. This is what blogging should be: real, honest opinions. The Gen Y blogs I stumble upon are mainly about "oh, my bf dumped me" or "have a happy day or else".

Haha, right on. I'm 27, so I guess that makes me generation Y. You're right, we suck! I'd like to think I buck the trend though.

I too am part of Generation Y at 22. Or is that Generation Z? The net is slow on this iPhone so I can't really Google it right now.

As someone for the eraly/mid part of Gen Y, I have to say that the people I know of my own age are more politically, historically and culturally aware than those of my parents generation. The problem is that they are also more lazy, less able to bear responsibility and have grown up a hell of a lot slower than my parents did, and I include myself in this. They are also a lot more likely to believe lame conspiracy theories about everything from 9/11 to the failure of New Coke.

A very of good friend of mine is a perfect example of my generation: he's married with a couple of kids, but still thinks it's cool to take a month off work to go hiking around South America. Of coure I can't say anything, but it just burns me up that he doesn't see anything wrong with this kind of thing.

However, it's worth realising that Gen X hasn't actually done that good a job of running things. Maybe people with a fresh set of dreams in their heads is exactly what this world needs.

I really dont agree to this post. I believe that every single generation has been blaming their kids for doing the dumb crap that they do. Look at the world youre handing to us? Gee, vietnam and global warming is good to you? Oh yea, you have done a lot in terms of hard-working. You cant generalize an entire generation, thats like generalizing a race. Where i live, its called racism. Then again, im 14 years old, what do i know?

The Boomers said the same thing about us GenXers back in the day. I remember entering the work force in my twenties -- underpaid, low on the totem pole, and with modern technical skills that were crucial to keeping the office operating.

It was clear to me at the time that the Boomers' generational bitching was wholly self-serving. They wanted us to suck it up, pay our dues, bow to our elders, and openly engage our passions -- all this for nine bucks an hour and no real prospect of advancement. They had a lot more to gain from our subservience and koolaid-drinking than we did.

I'm not about to recapitulate that mistake. The kids are all right.

Although many of generation Y are as incompetent as you presume, a very big handful of generation Y are able to conduct ourselves in the most upright demeanor. Also, you pompous toad, you fail to neglect the fact that generation X, as all generations, has many notorious downfalls.

I'm part of late Generation Y, but I was raised to respect others and not be an indignant, moronic slacker. Words cannot describe how much I agree with this entry. Most of late Gen Y annoy me to bits. I side more with Gen X and pre-Gen X people. They're typically a lot more kind and understanding than Generation Y (not to mention actually listen and consider your feelings more often than not).

GenX Pessimist said...

I have to totally agree with the poster on this one. I am a Gen Xer on the tail end of the Gen X timeline, and even in college I felt Gen Y's were just somehow brain deficient, morally deficient, and intellectually all BS.

Even if Gen Y's somehow get skipped in the presidential lineup, you still have to deal with them running pretty much everything at some point. I can imagine lawyers texting each other during murder trials about who's paying at TGIF that night.

I remember when I used to be such a frigging optimist. Gen Yer changed all that gradually over a period of 20 years, with their blatant racism, their vapid stupidity, their vacant looks, their complete lack of fashion sense, their retarded grasp of language, and a complete disregard for the existence of or importance of history.

I think we're dancing around the word "souless fascists" here, are we not? For whatever reason, they don't have any souls, and that is the core issue for me. Don't get me wroing, there were souless people all throughout my life and I dealt with them, but when I look back at those suck-ass people in my life, one thing sticks out: they were either GenYers, or they identified with Gen Yers. They really don't have souls. They are the brainless and brain-eating Zombie outbreak of our times. If they all get surgically taken out by a storm of mini-meterorites tomorrow, it will be the one redeeming event associated with Gen Y for me thus far.

I'm 14 and i have to say i think you're generalising WAY too much. Sure, there are some lazy and arrogant people my age or above above but you can't just decide that because of those few people we are all like that. Most of us are so much more politically aware than our parents etc. and actually take an interest in the world around us.
Is it so bad that we have more access to the things that matter faster than you did? Internet & social networking isn't only about being shallow & lazy... some of us DO care and do not appreciate you labelling us like that.

Actually, it is deeper than stupidity. It has to do with a psychological profile as well as lack of basic education. When I went to school all schools had to offer certain classes. I now get people in college who think Canada is a state of the USA bordering on PA. In 1970 no one in college would have made that mistake. Nor would they have thought site is sight. However there is also an attitude that a D is just fine and dandy. We can't teach them to think if we don't give them basic skills. A college student should be able to read and know Canada is NOT part of the USA. Prehaps it is time we make sure a D is NOT ok.

"However, it's worth realising that Gen X hasn't actually done that good a job of running things."

However, it's worth realising that Gen X, to date, hasn't ever been running things, at least not very often. The baby boomers have been doing that.

If you hired a bunch of Gen Y idiots who is the real idiot them or you Gen X that hired them?

I am 22 yrs old and i believe there is loads of talent out there. If your firm attracts only the ones with a "problem" that is someone elses fault.

Also, speaking of people like Paris Hilton, i don't admire her, i don't look up to her, i agree with you when you say that she is degrading the image of women, but her goal is to make money to keep living a certain lifestyle, she does this by making dumb actions once in a while....who is stupid, we (all generations) that consume this information or her that uses us to make money?

Making such general statements is a sign of ignorance just like saying that Americans are all fat and stupid, French are all arrogant, so on and so forth.

luckygirl23 said...

While all this is true, what exactly did Gen X do??? The problem is that while a lot of us are ready for a revolution, like the one our parents went through (the boomers who are actually running things now), we didn't/don't have the types of leaders that were seen in the 60's and 70's, thus have no idea what to do.

It is sad that in fighting wars, laws, and injustices, earlier generations could not help rid of us of the pain and turmoil that they suffered. Instead we replaced a civil rights movement with the worship of spectacle and celebrity. Very sad indeed.

Our parents fought so that we could have it all and we are thanking them with ineptitude, laziness, and complacency. But I think we have the drive and the heart, just not the skills nor the knowledge required to enact change on a mass scale. Who will lead the way!!!

Mike said...

I read your article, and as a Generation Yer, who feels like an outlier, I have to agree. They suffer from information glut, and their education, which may have been sufficient years prior, no longer can offer them the tools necessary to sort through this information.

However this is more than just a Generational problem, it permiates any and all who have to live in a country where 24 hour television and the internet have replaced books and serious study. For example, our current President, Obama, is readily labelled a fascist, a socialist and a communist, as if these words have lost their meaning. There was a time when no one would have conflated these terms, however now, the as of yet unregulated information of the internet and 24 hour news can throw misinformation to the wall and see what sticks. Note this is not a partisan comment against either side, but rather both sides.

Another clear example of how information glut has weakened our country can be seen in the Evolution vs Creationism debate. This debate is actually quite old in our countries history, yet until this Generation it was not able to reach the ears of those whose education might suffer from it. Now any fact, value, or piece of common sense can be rendered into a soundbite, a tweet or a text.

As a manufacturer I have a huge issue with Gen Y. I fell ass backwards into a management position rather quickly, as such I had to grow up very fast. Among my employees most are level headed, even the dullest of our older generations, but my one Gen Y employee disgusts me. Today, even though he is on salary he takes a 4 hour lunch, and this problem is routine. If we don't watch him he will leave early. It's not that he is wilfully disrespectful, or selfish, he's oblivious. I feel that when I explain simple concepts to him of showing up on time, respecting others, and making sure his work represents the quality we expect that it goes over his head. It's almost as if he's never been told this before.

My eventually solution was to isolate him, and transfer any pressing responsibilities to more capable departments and workers. He still has work for which we hold him accountable, but it is far less than what his paycheck indicates he is worth. This, to me, is especially sad, because most of our employees are machinists, and baby boomers.

What I have found solice in is the new immigrant population, specifically Latinos. They have provided the most amazingly competent, collected, dedicated and loyal workers I have. I could imagine that the void left by my generation in terms of capable workers is what has driven the rise in illegal immigration. It's possible that we, my generation rather, are due for a rude awakening when the economy demands for more laborers who are willing to break their backs and toil in sweat for their paychecks. I believe, in many ways this is already happening.

in answer to the several persons asking what generation x does, well ... we do the actual work of keeping the world functioning. the baby boomers 'run things' in the sense of making management decisions. generation x 'runs things' in the sense of turning wrenches and fixing machines.

this is of course a generalization.

gen y ... they are IMO pretty much useless ... though this is not entierly their fault ... when i went to school, i got flunked if i didn't get it right, not congradulated. that makes a difference.

*I dropped out of school in grade eight; Even so, I know how to use a semicolon and spell the word 'eight'.

to the above poster, well, it probably WAS the first time anyone had told him.

FWIW, i am gen x.

to gen y people out there who are aware of all this and feeling somehow ripped off ... don't worry, you are supposed to feel that way when you are in your twenties (even if civilation wasn't tanking you would still feel that way).

I would also remind you that you have more resources to draw on than either we gen x'ers or the baby boomers had, you need only to avail yourselves of them.

but ... you had bloody well better start learning how things work, because when we are gone you will have to actually fix the stuff that breaks down.

I agree with LT Nixon. I'm not perfect but I'd like to think I'm at least smarter than the average member of generation Y.

Maybe I'm lucky enough to have parents that actually gave a damn when it came to raising me.

This is funny. Almost everything stated about Gen Y (whatever that is) could be said about Generation X, like the part about wanting to kick the shit out of many of them, especially the ones with that "I know everything and you don't even exist for me" attitude. In the mid-nineties, I attended grad school. I was in my mid-forties then and it was about 25 years after earning my BA. By the time I got my MA, after mixing with my fellow TAs in the Bio Dept., I'd decided that the last thing I wanted to do was spend the rest of my life working with a bunch of backstabbing numbskulls like them. What a selfish, misguided group they were. Ironically, however, having used the Internet for the past decade, I've found the same bunch of obnoxious jerks right here -- so I didn't get away from them after all! When they finally put down their everpresent cell phones and start paying attention to real life, I'll be long gone. Good luck with Gen Y. Just remember, we still feel precisely the same way about all of you.

So, we are nothing like you.

We think differently. We have different values and priorities. We dress differently. We communicate differently. We believe and act differently.

Difference is pretty scary. Isn’t it?

This post captures only one side of the story. Sure, us generation Y employees are disloyal to our companies - but are they loyal to us? Personally, I refuse to get emotionally attached to a boss who belittles my training and can let me go with 1 week notice. Growing up in the age of pollution, consumerism and information overload doesn't make things easy either, so try to put yourself in our shoes before criticising!

I agree with a lot of what you're saying. I'm part of the late "Generation Y". I'm 16, so I'm very late. Looking at my peers gives me little hope for the future of this world. Many of them cannot print legibly or even spell simple words correctly. Then again, I have friends that are extremely intelligent and responsible. I understand where you're coming from, but I also believe that it is wrong to take a group of people and label them all as the same.

I totally agree. Generation Y are retarded. I am generalizing of course, but the trend does seem to become apparent. Its simply amazing how far these kids can shove their head up their asses. Cirque de Soleil, eat your heart out! We Gen Xers had our issues, but these kids are clueless, hopeless and a complete waste of space and matter. Compost is of more use. I'm thinking of making a two foot by 3 inch slab of hard plastic called a "Y Slapper". Simply use it to bitchslap one of these Gen Y fucktards across the head, for any reason,...or no reason at all.

Late Gen Y's aren't really even in the workplace yet, we are the teens of today's society.
However, I'm pretty sure the baby boomer generation (our parents) said the same thing about Gen X's. All of us were greenhorns at some point, don't stereotype an entire generation like that.
And how about Gen Z? Mainly Gen X's children? Would they be even stupider that Gen Y's?

Anonymous said...

You can't generalize an entire generation. It is true that this generation is full of lazy and somewhat inept people, but that doesn't mean that the entire generation is worthless. Every generation is different from its predecessor and they all have their different faults, but generations are shaped by the culture they grow up in (and sometimes rebel from). By the way you generation was the one who raised us. We came into your world and thats what made many people who they are so don't be so quick to pass the blame.

I am 15, meaning I am part of Gen Y (unfortunately). But I just wanted to let you know, I agree wholeheartedly with what you have said. I am ashamed with Gen Y and find them a disgrace. I on the other hand work hard, maintain a job and show utmost respect to my authorities. While I do enjoy World of Warcraft (because it is supposedly something that us Gen Yers love) it is not my life. Thank you for your article, I loved it and got a kick out of it. I'm going to print it out and stick it to my binder and show it to every half dressed girl and saggy pantsed boy! Please write more! I am dying to hear them!

I'm 18, and well, yes I have made mistakes, but I at least try to respect others...maybe it was because I got bullied by those little whores in middle school?
It just makes me cringe how stupid the others are...ugh...and this is why I am never taken seriously as a woman...

Gen X was that way too. It's called your teenage years. Teenagers are always more spoiled than their elders and always more superficial.

That said, Generation Y is going to have a rude awakening soon. When the economy collapses they'll lose their ipods and their new black berries and then what? More than likely a bunch of armed hooligans looting and burning down cities because they don't have anything better to do. Nihilism and opportunism will win the day.

I'm 14, so I must, unfortunately, be part of this newer, shittier (pardon my language) generation. I watch my peers go through their lives as ignorant, unquestioning idiots, who spend their lives on Facebook, Twitter, and whatever the recent fad is these days. At 12 years old, I made a conscious decision to be socially inactive, just to avoid becoming anything like the people I'm constantly surrounded in at school. I read an article on nuclear fusion, what did you do? Update your Facebook status? Tweet about your teenage angst? I really hope somebody steps their parents step up to the plate, and slap some sense into their children before we're all doomed.

I'm 14, and I have to say, my generation is full of tools/dumbasses. Kids my age are taught how to think, how to be 'creative', how to not be a social outcast, how to appear manly, ect. Thus, nobody in my grade has a complex taste in music, everyone thinks the same (the worst is writing rubrics, for fuck sakes, let us write how we want to write, not writing in order to achive points), and in order to be popular, you have to hit on girls, say retarded things on facebook, ect ect ect.

I'm moderately popular, I'm not some kind of social outcast. But I'm not going to become popular, because I don't want to become part of the shitty system.

There are some really smart asians in our grade, but they waste their knowledge thinking according to a rubric. It sucks.

The following was written by Socrates a Greek Scholar in the fifth century B.C. It alludes to the fact that every generation shares animosity for its' successor.

"Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for
authority; they show disrespect for their elders, and love chatter in
places of exercise. They no longer rise when elders enter the room.
They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up their
food and tyrannize their teachers."

I'm 20, so I'm part of Generation Y. I agree with your post whole-heartedly, though it is a bit of a generalization, the comments above from some of these Gen Y kids are well thought out at 14-16, so we should give them some credit there.

I've also been a blue-collar employee since I was 16 years old, I dropped out of highschool to go work at a golf course, doing full shifts plus O/T. While other kids my age were waking up at 7 or 8 and going to school, then getting out around 3:30 to go smoke pot or go stand around the local convenience store trying to look tough; I was waking up at 5:30, heading to work, getting out of work around 4, then going and having coffee at the diner with a group comprised of 50-70something gentlemen...And I learned something from those men and respected them...I shed a tear when one of them passed.

I give every job my all...I may bitch sometimes, but who doesn't? When I was 19, I had been working fulltime for 3 years, went and applied for a job at a plywood mill, let me tell you something:

Most of the workforce at the mill was from 24-60something, save for the 18yo who got fired 2 weeks after he got hired. Never once did I complain about my work or slack, or come in late. I was the 1st one at the punchclock, and the last one out of the door. Hell, the 23yo slipped in through the window to punch in and finish cleaning/strapping a load for shipment (Gen Y is lazy and doesn't care eh?) I took a lot of pride in my work, it was shipped all over the US, and went to some pretty important structures...I wouldn't let a piece off of my press that had de-lammed or was scratched.

If everyone in this generation eventually grows up and turns out like the guys my age at the mill, we'll be alright.

Unfortunately, we have people glamorizing the gangster lifestyle and encouraging the abuse/degradation of women and every other media outlet telling these mindless sheep to rebel against authority and that whole "fuck da police" mentality...

Why r you all dropping anonymous comments...fine, the Gen-Yers have a few annoying traits but the problem with the Gen-Xers mostly is that they are the most docile set of beings ever created - failing to show initiative and wld rather accept BS than try to bring about change...
Leave the Gen-Y peeps alone.. they are interesting, willing to learn at all times and use their initiative... their positives far outweigh their negatives - unlike the generation before them... cheers!

OP I gotta agree with you to an extent, Gen Yer's are fucking annoying, always on their iPhones texting, playing games, acting like what they're doing is so my much important than what's going on around them. I don't even have an iPhone, I've got a free phone. However, the training we (yes, I'm gen Y) receive in college is quite sound, and we will be prepared for the challenges to come. Now whether we have a good attitude or decide to show up on time or follow the rules and do our work depends on the individual. Yes, Gen Y'ers for the most part have had it easier, myself included, but if we're eager and willing and respectful of those around us, and wish to succeed, and not superficial like all the other gen y'ers you stereotype us as, then what's the problem? I believe Generation Y shows some potential, but it's those that feel they deserve they entitlement and spend 10 hours a day on their iPhone that worry me.

True, "every generation shares animosity for its' successor", but I think what we're seeing with generation Y is a curve.. Gen Y is exponentially worse off because we are approaching a singularity. There has been more complex change in the last 20 years than in the 1000 years preceding it, and the technology we have created is at the center of it all.

Generation Y is addicted to DIVERSION. Although this permeates to all of 21st century America, generation Y is the first generation to be 'brought up' in this culture (screen culture). Most of them lack humility; they believe that every generation that has come before them is primitive, on the basis that they did not have the advanced technology we now possess. It's such a great paradox, then, that our most technologically savvy generation is also the most ignorant.

Personally, I'm a STRONG believer in this whole 2012 thing, and I'm hoping and praying that something does happen by the end of the decade, something glorious (what I mean by glorious, you will probably think of as 'devastating'). I'd like for the most extreme thing to happen short of extinction; I want our species to come out of this with a new perspective. I hope we lose ALL of our technology. People will go fucking mad without their 24 hour television and myspace and facebook and CELL PHONES CELL PHONES CELL PHONES, IMMEDIATE GRATIFICATION, IMMEDIATE GRATIFICATION.

I mean, without technology, people would actually be forced into sitting and.. doing nothing... actually sitting.. and REFLECTING.. upon their own existence, and nothing else.. This is what most people lack, but gen Y especially.. a true sense of spirituality.. of humanness.. of disconnect from the technological landscape we have created (of which there would be no problem at all if we could but moderate our immersion into that landscape).

There is very little sense of connection with nature, with our planet, with our MOTHER, who we are slowly KILLING, because all people care about is MONEY, and IMMEDIATE GRATIFICATION.

And you can call the post a 'generalization', but what does that even mean? If MOST people in a given sample are this way, then is the generalization not validated?

I'm 20 by the way, right in the thick of things. I'm so fortunate I get to see it all go down.

I'm happy that you mention this, because I am stuck in that stupid generation and I was starting to wonder if I was just anti-social or shy... but then I realized I just didn't want to have anything to do with those people. They're so superficial and idiots. I don't even know why I'm here. It's impossible to interact with them and that they actually know what you're talking about, or what you mean. As if there was just only one conclusion to everything that you do, example; if you're a girl and you talk to a guy = you want to sleep with him,or if you play music in a band with REAL instruments instead of computers = you're so old school, but you're cool. Yeah right, what the hell is wrong with them? All trying to be and act the same, otherwise they're loosers... or I don't konw what. I just don't get it.

I am currently 24 and fortunately grew up in a stable household. It wasn't always perfect but I learned the real meaning of respecting your fellow man. You can learn so much from prior generations. Chances are they've already gone through what problems you're having in life. Unfortunately for whatever reason gen y has a lack of respect ....mainly the late gen yers. I know the people my age aren't perfect beleive me. I on rare occasions actually reach out to someone I went to high school with and am usually left with a sense of hopelessness for the future. I do believe some of it does have to do with gen x. Think about it...the divorce rate is through the roof. And it started with your generation. The baby boomers did have divorce but it wasn't nearly as abundant as it is now. The reasoning for that I have no clue about but I do know that a broken home can really affect the children. Parents fighting for custody may make the child feel pushed and pulled. If a parent leaves it may make that child feel worthless and unwanted. And the constant fighting and disrespect between the parents surely doesn't teach children anything. I could be wrong but I'm just saying look at the spike in divorce and the then actions of this generation. There's always cause and effect.

I feel sorry for the future of the United states because I attended graduate school with a bunch of moronic wannabe Biology teachers from Generation Y and I had to explain what we were measuring in the field because these morons had no intellectual capacity whatsoever. they could only create pretty graphs n their macs though they had NO CLUE what they were measuring. hahahah! They were so jealous that I was intelligent beautiful and creative. they were also butt ugly nerds. This fat girl chelsea-hideous actually, critisised a pretty star for being "awkward". Master projectionist. She and the rest were sociopathic projectionists. Also, it was like revenge of the nerds. The ugly little fucks ganged up on me for being more intelligent than they could even dream of being. I am so happy now and I own my power but they made my life very difficult and they were talentless, stupid and ugly. They just couldn 't stand seeing someone talented in their midst and like te show survivor stuck together in their mediocrity and tried to tear me down but of course they failed as they will do always being complete incompetents. Thank you class of 2009 University of New Hampshire Environmental Education freaks for making me see how competent and intelligent I am.

I feel sorry for the future of the United states because I attended graduate school with a bunch of moronic wannabe Biology teachers from Generation Y and I had to explain what we were measuring in the field because these morons had no intellectual capacity whatsoever. they could only create pretty graphs n their macs though they had NO CLUE what they were measuring. hahahah! They were so jealous that I was intelligent beautiful and creative. they were also butt ugly nerds. This fat girl chelsea-hideous actually, critisised a pretty star for being "awkward".

I find it hilarious that so many Gen Y admit they have huge problems but seem to think they are distanced from it. Illusionary superiority and Self serving bias here are at the base of their problems.
Technology is probably the root cause being that one does not need to know anything prior to needing to use that information and they look it up with ease.
Spoiled, everything handed to them they would learn if they weren't still living with the parents.

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each
time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Many thanks!

I drop a leave a response each time I appreciate a article on a site or if I have something to add to
the conversation. Usually it's triggered by the passion communicated in the article I looked at. And on this post "Generation Y: The most stupid generation so far". I was excited enough to drop a commenta response :) I actually do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or does it look like like some of the comments look as if they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list every one of all your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

We are trying to measure something that is constantly In flux using generations and that but what about the real problem behind all this!! It's the baby boomers and the boomer that fucked It all up for us. They we're the firsts to create propaganda and be affected by it

I am a member of Generation Y who quite personally wants to isolate themselves from the pox that would be my peers. There isn't a redeemable one in the bunch nor one I would desire some kind of camaraderie or companionship with. I find their behavior as a whole loathsome, vile and abhorrent, especially with their obsessions with greed, decadence and base debauchery.

I lost hope for humanity before even Eternal September because of how my peers acted back in the earliest days of Generation Y's emergence, and to this day I still cannot regain even the slightest shred of hope that perhaps there might be someone redeemable in the current stock, one who might be able to lead the way to a brighter tomorrow. Perhaps part of it was due to the berating and belligerent abuse I had to deal with when interacting with them for a good twenty years before my decision to isolate myself almost entirely that influenced my views towards them, but to this day I cannot stand to be around one of those vile, loathsome creatures for more than maybe half of a moment.

I am 22 years old and in my third year of college as a Mechatronics major (Mech.+ Electrical Engineering).My college lets anyone with an act score above 20 in. I got a 33 but go here because I have a scholarship and job in this town, everyone in my college is a dumbass. (Students, Teachers, Staff) No one here stands out and the younger the people I meet the more similar they seem to one another, they are just perfectly normal. I mean do they think they can be succesful by being normal? Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein certainly were not. Almost everyone just wants to fit in and it truly saddens me because the Fuel/Food/Energy/Enviromental/Population crisis(es) that are about to butt fuck humanity into submission are going to (if at all) have to be solved by the few people who have been busting thier asses thier whole lives and been outcasted from society because of it. Being smart and creative needs to become cool because this thug/treat women like shit mentality is fucking retarded. Also sorry for any improper grammar I am an engineer not an english major.

The only way generation Y is going to do well is if they drop their selfish shallow lifestyle and come out of their lazyness and childishness. I regret to admit that i am one of them and i am judged on a daily basis for wanting to work hard by idiots who like to get "smashed" every few nights. Another alternative to this is to teach the new generation to work hard. if that means that there are no primeministers from Y then that may be a good thing. reagan was 77 when he left office whilst clinton as only 56. such a gap can exist.
