The preview picture I’ve used for this post says it all for me (it’s here on the right if you didn’t see it!). Seriously.
I came across this cleverly hilarious response to the incessant bashing of the current generation of young folks between the ages of 18-30 who have slowly become somehow a favourite target of many.
I don’t deny “my people” have flaws and we count many ignorant, idiotic drones with no willingness, interest or desire to better themselves or give a crap – but so does every generation without fail. If you say otherwise, you are either a willing liar or ignorant of reality.
A part of me gets tired also by the need to keep bashing younger generations instead of building them up – the need to aggrandise ourselves and our generation while belittling the next one and shoving “how hard/better it was in my day” down their collective throats. I’ve seen it happen time and again and it’s an accepted running joke, yet we choose to live the cliched joke year in and year out. It’s one of those things that makes life feel insanely surreal!
In any case, I’m going to leave it at that and let you scroll ahead to the main event, read and enjoy this response to all the “Millenial Bashing” from Matt Bors was born in 1983 and was a 2012 Pulitzer Prize Finalist in editorial cartooning. This cartoon is originally posted here on CNN and I really, really wanted to share it but a link is often not enough.
Should they want to kick my arse about it, I’ll take this down, but man I hope not! So enjoy it while it’s here! Cheers all!
