Boomers will continue on this line of thought until they realize theyre a bunch of toddlers playing with flamethowers.

Of course they "don't get" the gen Y/millennials; we don't expect you to understand why we are superior yet. The boomers are still too brainwashed by mainstream media.

And really, the boomers never had to deal with the level of advertising, and tyrannical ignorance in the government, that millennials were born into.

Everybody here is hating on the younger generation. We've never seen that before in history tounge

I'm 24 and I worked at a farm for the past year when I couldn't find another job. It was brutal work, but I saved almost every penny. I think it has to do with some people being spoiled more than anything. I worked with some white kids who were lazy, and some white kids who were very hard workers. The mexican kids I worked with were all ridiculously hard working. I think when you know there is no one to bail you out financially, it forces you to work hard. I feel bad for those mexican kids. Every second they're not at school they're working doing manual labor. I really believe mexican americans are going to be the next upper class group in this country. They also don't have to be told to do things. They could literally run the farm on their own, and pretty much do. If a tractor breaks down, they don't park it and get another. They take it apart and fix it. Then they go out and finish harvesting. They're the doctors of the future.

I am 44 and have a profile on a dating site. I get messages every single day from guys in the 20's. I get messages from men of all ages, but I am always surprised at the young guys. Yes, they may be horny.
But when I talk to them, almost all of them are quite lonely too. They have a harder time socially it seems, than men in their 30's or 40's had.
Porn has warped young guy's brains. But so have multi-player online games.
Women are all about communication and social skills. If you don't have decent social skills then you will get no where with women. Forget money or confidence etc. The number one thing for guys is the ability to converse well and tell jokes ie: don't be a geek in front of her friends.

Liberalism and Feminism destroyed most of them and both of those come directly from Communism. Weak men just make it that much easier for TPTB to keep and gain more control over us.
Ayatollah Khomeini:
“Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males, provided they are not disabled and incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of [other] countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world. But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world…. Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them [the non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Does this mean sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us? Islam says: Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should surrender to the enemy? Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Koranic] verses and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

Re: what happeed to the men of the younger generation in the USA?
I'm not much older than the young generation. I'm 35. I see a bunch of kids who are remarkably different than we were at their age, at least in certain ways.

Even by 23 or 24 years old they have no skills.The young men are pathetically incompetent with tools. Until recently I owned a small construction business and I'd hire these kids. Almost none of them could read a tape measure. If their truck had a water pump go out or something I'd have to pick them up for weeks until they could have it fixed. They were clueless about how to take care of such little things themselves.

In summary, (from this video and several others I can't find at the moment) many commonly used products and items, like plastic water bottles containing chemicals, and chicken containing hormones that cause the decrease of testosterone and/or increase of estrogen, AS WELL as social conditioning have caused the latest generation of males to become pussies.

Re: what happeed to the men of the younger generation in the USA?
My take on this whole thing also has a lot to do with the old "everyone gets a trophy for participating" BS that started here in the past 2 decades. There is no competition bred into people because everyone is a winner if they just "show up". That, and little Johnny having to wear a helmet and knee pads cause riding a bike is just so darn dangerous...he might hurt his wittle knees.


Kids are put in a bubble and taught that it's a dangerous world that shouldn't be explored, mommy cleans their rooms/laundry/meals until they are in their 20s and we wonder wth is going on
 Quoting: Booted and Suited


I'd guess this has a lot to do with the attitudes. Overprotectiveness has its price. Life used to be more of an adventure when I was young, so raising my boys (four of them - ages 18, 17, 16, 15) I tried to teach them how to work and the need to know how to work. They have each learned differently. We (my wife and I) homeschooled them for four years so that when we put them in school they were all supposed to be put up a grade, but it didn't work out that way. The 18 year old was valendictorian of his graduating class (and yeah, I'm proud) and was taking college courses when he was 16. The 17 year old was getting straight F grades so we pulled him out of school and put him back in home school. The first thing he did was build an electric guitar. Carved the wood, wound the pickups, cut the frets out of a coat hanger, and used various electronic parts he'd collected for the rest. He's also the go-to guy when anything needs fixing on the cars or computers. The 16 year old had a heart operation when he was 5 days old (transposition of the great arteries) and suffered from the anesthetic, which derailed his brain synopsis in some way. By second grade in school he didn't even know his alphabet, which is why we started home school to begin with. In four years at home he went from being 2 grades behind to a grade ahead and is one of the top in his class. The 15 year old is a phenomenal reader. He read The DaVinci Code in fourth grade in three nights. He is in the same grade with the 16 year old because they are best friends and always competing. He is the top of his class.

All of these boys helped build the chicken coop, chop firewood, and help with every other job I give them without much whimpering (except cleaning their rooms). Every one has at least the rudimentaries of mechanics. They have all worked on a local horse farm (along with their sister of 14 years) and are sought after by the lady that runs the place because they know how to work where most of the kids she hires come in not knowing which end of the shovel to use. This is not their fault, but it is a fact, and most of these are girls.

We had a hard time with the school system about the way in which they turned our kids away from the values we tried to instill in them. It seemed, much of the time, that they wanted to break our family up. Upon looking at society as a whole I'd say the entire thing is set up to break up families. Dishonesty is rewarded. Recreation is an entitlement. Technology is the answer. Money is the Way to achieve anything. And, responsibility is a disease that only affects the low lifes. These are the values I have seen undermining the system where mores, ethics, and good judgement are in short supply. Oh, and the happy two parent family is not so common anymore, either.

Several years ago I read a book that pointed out that throughout history every society had ceremonies to acknowledge the coming of age in children. Most don't now, and the children suffer from this. They lack identity within a societal structure and are left to drift along learning who they are by what they have. They are bereft of the feeling that they have a reason to be responsible since they don't believe anyone gives a damn about them. And here we sit, judging them, when we are the ones who should shoulder the responsibility of bringing them home. The adventures we had are lost on them because they don't feel the same way. How could they? The knee pads and helmet prevent this from happening, and how else can they achieve anything worth recognizing as noteworthy?

Re: what happeed to the men of the younger generation in the USA?
I'm a 21 year old male and live in the city so I might know a little bit about what goes on. I'm not really too interested in other people's lives, so I don't know the whole picture.

These are a few of my observations:

We're pretty much it or miss and we're more focused on survival than living a certain way or following strict traditions be it by country or religion. Many of us are concerned with just floating and then living how we want within our means.

We're pretty conflicted on a lot of the precedents that set how we live present day and are more concerned with them, at times, than our daily lives. This is a great distraction of course, but I don't think a bad one. I haven't met anyone my age who disagrees with the idea that: "we're the 20-30's now, we're the adults, we should change our environment and make the rules how we like".
We think we live in a chaotic world.
We don't trust anyone. At all.

Ironically, and this may scare you, we actually think the problem is not enough control in the hands of average people our age.

I think the second and third generation 'mixing pot' kids have a lot to do with it too, and the prescription drug atmosphere catching up with us, and a lot of us went missing or fell off when we were younger. I remember people disappearing a lot as a kid or falling to drugs or domestic violence or other things like that.

Last two things I can think of are:

Some of us with mechanic or labor fathers who could teach us to do all that marvelous work like putting together sheds and stuff never wanted us around. A lot of us were just left alone by our parents. I mean a LOT.



Some of us are just playing it by ear. We don't even think it's bad. We've been called the 'lost generation' plenty of times, and for the most part I agree. What I think is most prevalent, though, above all else, is that we've been left alone and are for the most part doing really random things.

That's for the 20-23 only. I can speak pretty honestly for us for about 11 miles out from where I live which is the North East USA.
