As time progresses, new generations are born. And with this latest generation, the Millennial generation, the future seems bleak… somewhat.
You see, every previous generation thinks the next is worse than theirs or the previous one. Everyone thinks their generation is the best and that the previous one or following one is worse. Usually to them, the following one is the worse one, because they’re the ones that have to take care of the following generation. If the new generation comes out as screwed up, they get the blame for it. (Though I mostly blame liberals)
And this new generation is no different. Millennials often blame the previous generations for screwing up both them and the country. Millennials believe that this country’s best years are behind it (though it’s ironic since many of them claim to be ‘progressive’). They believe they got here at the wrong time. And they’re acting like it.
What do I mean by that? I mean that they’re the generation that refuses to grow up. Since the country’s best years are behind it, there’s no point in trying to be successful because that will only result in failure. And comfortable, moderate survival is better than trying.
I remember Rush Limbaugh talking about a story on the Daily Wire on the subject of Millennials. The article was titled “At What Age Do Millennials Consider Themselves Adults? The Answer Will Stun You.” And stun it did. They said that Millennials consider themselves adults at age 30. I don’t know about you, but I considered myself to be an adult at age 18. Why? Because that’s when you’re a LEGAL ADULT. By law, I’m considered an adult, so an adult I shall be.
Now, that’s not to say that I’m off on my own to who-knows-where trying to get some random job and start living on my own. But that’s the age where if I do something wrong, I have to take responsibility for it. I’m learning to be responsible. I’m responsible for creating some of the content of this website. I’m responsible for making sure I learn more about my Christian faith. I’m responsible about helping update my local church’s website with content. I count three more things that I’m responsible for than the typical Millennial.
If they consider themselves to be adults, something is fundamentally wrong with them and the way they were raised. If someone who’s 29 isn’t an adult yet, then what in the world are they? Children? You may joke about that and call them that, but is that really what they believe they are? Normal development of a human being starts with: baby, toddler, child, preteen, teenager, young adult, adult. If they don’t consider themselves to be adults, then they can’t consider themselves to be young adults, because adult is in the title. A young adult has less responsibilities than an adult, but is learning to grow up to be an adult. You can’t be a young adult at 29. You’re not YOUNG ANYMORE. You might be young to someone older than you, but you’re not young in general.
In basketball terms, being 29 in the NBA means you’re an established veteran (unless you started REALLY late.) In the NBA, being 29 means you’re in your prime. A young adult isn’t in his prime yet. An adult is. In real life terms, your prime years are 25 to 35. After that, you’re considered to be middle-aged, at least young middle-aged. But Millennials that are over 20 and under 30 don’t believe to be adults. Why is that? The answer is simple: Liberal rule in schools.
In schools, particularly activities, everyone gets a trophy. Just for participating. It makes the concept of trophies meaningless. And it makes the concept of competition meaningless. If little Billy scores no points in, say, a basketball game and does the worst, and little Johnny scores the most points and does the best, they both get MVP trophies. Now, little Billy was riding the bench the whole time but he still got the same reward as the kid that tried the hardest and accomplished the most. What does that tell little Johnny? That it doesn’t matter how hard he tries, his hard work won’t get acknowledged. Someone tried less hard than him and got the same thing he did. He figures he just shouldn’t try anymore if the result will be the same. At an early age, he’s taught that competition (capitalism) is bad. And that everyone should feel special.
I’m reminded of a quote from (ironically) a kid’s movie: The Incredibles (a superhero movie, in case you didn’t know). “… Everyone can be super! And when everyone’s super… no one will be.” If everyone’s a superhero, no one’s a superhero. If everyone’s an MVP, no one’s an MVP. If everyone is special, no one is.
This is the mindset of a Millennial: “Why try?” And this mindset is precisely what liberals want. But it’s the exact opposite of what God wants. God didn’t create you just so He could watch you do absolutely nothing. If He wanted to do that, He could’ve just created a blob of goo and stare at that for all eternity. He masterfully and wonderfully created you for a reason, you just have to find out the reason yourself.
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.”
