Millenials: The Even More Lost Generation

One of my favorites movies is Fight Club hence the name of the blog.  It comes from a line in the movie.

Anway, there are a few things going on that people either know about it, but don't know what to do about it or don't know about it.

In the movie, it describes a bunch of late 20 year olds to early 30 year olds about how their life has no purpose.  It's a rebellious film.  Which is probably why I like it so much but that is not my point.

Even though Fight Club wasn't about Millenials, the whole idea still applies.

We are a generation without definition.  We don't have anything to stand for, we can't decide what to be involved with so that future generations can look back and say what great men and women we were.  Instead we're coddled and hand held and just wandering.

We can't be defined by our jobs because we're overeducated individuals who answer phones for a living.  We are a generation of people who were told that we were special and that if you did x,y and z you can attain that American dream that eluded so many before us. 

Since that didn't happen.  We've become angry protestors.

We'll protest anything.  It's not like we have jobs to go to.

Part One:  Occupy Wall Street

It's a good idea but some terms some main idea needs to be formed.  By saying "US Government fix this!" Is not enough.  And you can't really say that it's the governments job because obviously, they don't know what they're doing.  I believe hand-holding is in effect or even and restructuring on how things work in the US Government because obviously it is not working.

Part Two:  Penn State Coach

There's people protesting his firing.  Don't get me wrong, he could have been fired in a more dignified way.  But where was the dignity for the child he didn't stand up for.  If you are an adult I feel as though you have a responsibility to protect innocent life.

I do not understand the people protesting his firing.  In my view there's no other option.  No he is not the one who commited the act; but by not doing all that he could.  I just don't know how the man slept at night.

So I don't understand the people protesting.  What if it were you and an adult knew and did nothing?  I can't wrap my mind around it.

And all of that is what I mean, if it sounds like a good cause my generation will be there to fight it because we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore.  The issue is, we don't know what to do about it.
