What's wrong with kids today?

Other Stuff

Glossy news magazines like to characterize generations of kids, as though members have so much in common:

  • Generation X (birthdates from the 1960s to early 1980s) - the MTV generation, doesn't respect authority, is well educated, and is more socially liberal
  • Generation Y (birthdates from early 1980s to early 2000s) - Civic-minded, money-obssessed, and with a narcissistic sense of entitlement
  • Generation Z (birthdates from early 2000s to present) - The "connected" generation grew up with mobile phones, the Internet, and likely unconcerned with ethnicity

While these are fun, I believe there are other characteristics to group people together by.  For example, I propose that we group them by the way in which they get on my nerves.

Today?  I'd like to describe people that annoy me by simultaneously being unable to think for themselves, and beliving they are "the bright ones".  I'll do this by repeating the conversation I heard at the next table at a smoothie stop, in the middle of the last school year after picking my sonl.

A young man and woman were discussing their school (they went to college together), their social groups, politics, and ministry...and with complete, groupthink reinforced confidence, they parroted things their parrents had told them.  It was sufficiently maddening that I immediately wrote it down....

It was like indoctrinated valley girls.


On their social groups: "I'm like still the same person, you know?  I think people are talking about, like, personality. I'm in the clique but I don't really know it."  She just announced that she was unaware of something that her statement contradicted...


On politics: "The Democratic party is committing all kinds of crimes, and their co-conspiritors are helping them cover it up. I know, because my Dad's friend has a picture of <something totally innocuous and unrelated> that PROVES it."


On Minsitry: "Our ministry is so that we can be closer to God, to know that His blessings don't depend on Him, theyd epend on us, and if we pray, it's for us, not for Him, which is how we can live in His love, without judgement, or, you know, like, I am just happy knowing He's paying attention, even if He's not listiening."

Read those, and see if you can even parse some of then.  They're so eager to repeat things, blindly, that they don't even bother to tell something consistent or which makes sense...

Really agreeable writing here on what’s wrong with kids today? It is such an interesting to read in-depth about characterize generations of kids. But I think generation of today’s young people is no more different. Yes, there are those who pass more period of time in the computer-generated world rather than the actual world & making interactions with those people whom they will never meet.

So fun to review old predictions, feeling like a guest from future. Yet, in 2012, before applying for work in college I entertained myself with similar posts as well. You turned out to be luckier though.

ESPN's Dan Le Betard conducted a stinging interview with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Wednesday, grilling los angeles angels of anaheim jersers the commissioner on the details of the Miami Marlins sale to a group led by Derek Jeter. The conversation was contentious from the start, with Le Betard saying, "Baseball has been really bad to South Florida for many years, and I don't believe baseball deserves a single customer in South Florida," just moments before introducing the commissioner. It only got more heated from there. Le Betard bluntly asked whether or not Manfred knew of Jeter's plan to cleveland indians jersers slash the Marlins' payroll. Manfred denied having knowledge of any of Jeter's specific plans for the group while going through the approval process. "We are starting with a chicago white sox jersers lie, Rob," washington nationals jersers Le Batard said. "That's where we're starting." Manfred continued to insist that decisions such as the miami marlins jersers ones Jeter has made to cut the Marlins' budget were made at a local level, independent of his purview as commissioner. "We did not have player-specific plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that we approve in the ownership process." On Thursday, Le Batard said during his show that he had seen the "Project Wolverine" boston red sox jersers proposal Jeter's group washington nationals jersers put together for MLB and knew the commissioner was not being truthful. This was echoed by Barry Jackson at the Miami Herald cincinnati reds jersers who reported that Jeter's plan was vetted and approved by MLB, and that that plan included slashing the team's budget from $115 million to $85 million. "A source directly involved in the Marlins sales process, after hearing the Le Batard interview, said, via text: 'Commissioner detroit tigers jersers said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders. "'Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter's plan] called on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million. wholesale baseball jersers Widely circulated."
