A disturbingly counteractive contrast is in existence between the bookends spanning the generations, and the predicative model foreshadowing the pending decades neatly sidesteps a wealth of optimism. More specifically, the younger generations gradually inheriting the reins of the workforce are already showing signs of angst and distraught defeatism, the prevalent affliction of submissive mentalities costing employers billions of dollars, according to a telling study featured in the Harvard Review.
Millennials and generation z are somewhat inadvertently ditching careers in a self-driving vehicle dirty bomb inferno torching society. The root cause can be tracked directly to overzealous authority figures and the epidemic of lazy mental health evaluations transforming the remnants of the playground and kickball at recess, into a strip mall low income prescription drug outlet strategically administered by the Cartel. While mind control designer drugs vanquish innocence to the catacombs of the underworld, the atypical over energetic youth is destined for the sombrero of attention deficit disorder. And the result is as maddeningly cumbersome as Ellen eagerly swapping power brokers, the baleful shadows of intolerance preparing for a bloody onslaught on reason.
The numbers presented through the study are just plain ugly, whichever curve the lack of performance is based on. Fox News reports that 50% of millenials, and a staggering three quarters of generation z have said ay dios to a job due to a short circuit. Compared with the steady fortitude of generation x in navigating the pratfalls of the workplace, the data is an unflattering indictment of specific factors in the modern world destroying productivity.
While the aforementioned instant gratification solution to a well behaved dream world through over-medication stands out as a key component in a chaotic environment, the blame cannot be placed solely on pill popping. Pills do not turn people into ineffective assholes, people do.
Somewhere within the construct of this puzzling maelstrom, the ominous trendiness of enablement rears its online dating profile magnitude of questionable attractiveness. Woman- “You don’t look like your picture.” Man- “I used to look like that. They say a picture trims twenty pounds.”
The participation trophy experiment of holding kindergarten graduation ceremonies may have been a bit of an oversight in training kids to handle adversity, and instead introducing a virulent strain of a pathetic inability to deal with failure, or for that matter pressure situations. Parental United Nations grade diplomacy and 15 years of coddling, plague a crippled job market, where the majority of candidates are overeducated, lack applicable skills, and are unable to handle the grind of the work week in the absence of safe spaces. Certainly, the banishment of tough love to a Gobi desert happy gulag has raised the universal level of anxiety spanning the generations, and wasted resources in a more heedless fashion than the Massachusetts Bay Authority still fleecing state taxpayers after all these years. At least Michael Dukakis was magnanimous in an era where extremism and indecency did not afflict either side. But mom and dad are only a minor part of the problem.
At least young people are universally well- versed in one activity, staging public and online protests.
However, it unfortunate that impassioned and fervid pleas are being directed at the wrong targets, as the offending perpetrators manipulating the puppet strings, are completely tone deaf to the reality at hand. The irony is not lost that the societal villains have no problem passing the buck and spinning the vitriol through self-serving and targeted rhetoric and propaganda, while exploiting the fragile and flawed youth in political lobbying and empire building efforts. Elitists have cagily and successfully orchestrated the public blame game upside down and inside out. The swarm of platitudes each a lucrative gem.
Get a pat the back and lack the front door. Take two pills with an energy drink and get lost in the device, and don’t worry about being unemployed. We will take care of you.
