“We are not born to accommodate tyranny over our hearts, minds, bodies, or souls. We are here to confirm an abundance of love-inspired possibilities greater than such restrictions.”

Rebecca McNutt
“Selena was born in a generation that had grown up on the edge. She’d grown up knowing that the little child starlet who voiced Anne-Marie on 'All Dogs Go to Heaven', Judith Barsi, had been murdered and set on fire by her own father. She’d grown up knowing that school shootings were more common than winning the lottery. She’d grown up in an age of terror.”
Rebecca McNutt, Bittersweet Symphony

There is a great new work before us, which is to replace with true knowledge
“There is a great new work before us, which is to replace with true knowledge the ignorance that has destroyed human minds. We will construct unity in a world [which] has been brutally torn apart by false divisions of race, religion, gender, nationality, and age. We will heal with unconditional love those souls whose hearts have been disfigured by hatred and loneliness.”
Aberjhani, Songs from the Black Skylark zPed Music Player

“I don't want to be alone, that should just be the beginning and the end of my story.”

“In short, millennials have been dealt a bad hand in their career, social, and romantic lives—some even in their family. In the karma points of the world, millennials are of the lowest caste so far. As a result, they are treated with disdain, contempt, and disrespect. Most of the time, they don’t fight back, usually in danger of losing their financial stability.”

“The problem with a generation treated like royalty as children as they partied their life to the fullest was that they became quite used to special treatment as they grew into adults and produced children of their own. As the Baby Boomers had babies of their own, the need to be the best transformed into “which one has the most special child?”

“Anyway, in order to get along, the second Boomer group would have to learn to trust the younger millennials more, which is almost anathema to this micromanaging generation. Often, these are the parents or bosses who criticize millennials for doing things differently from what they were used to, which irks the youngsters who are more open to change. The millennials, on their part, would fare better by suspending their natural suspicion, and understanding that these elders are often just concerned with problem-solving underneath their hypercritical, nagging ways. These are people who have done things over and over all throughout their lives, and are having difficulty letting the old ways go.”

“Due to their tendency to micromanage, they left little for their millennial and Gen Z children to work on themselves, resulting in the current problem of “adulting”—more so felt by the millennials, often being their eldest children.”

“And God said, “Let there be millennials.”
Like a wrench in the machinery, the little creatures went out, played with toys and went to school. The adults were at first pleased—“ah, how might these little things fit in our established world?” they wondered. “In what way must we hammer them to fit our mold?” More underlings was something to be anticipated and so they hammered the little things. But the little things didn’t adapt—they cried in pain. They cried, but they didn’t change. They grew up, and the tears became resentment and turned into psychological disorders. The adults hammered again—just a little more and they should cooperate. But they didn’t. And soon enough, the youngsters were fully grown.
The adults beheld the creatures in fear and muttered the only word that came to mind: “Monsters.”

“What would you do, if you weren’t afraid to die?
This is the question that most millennials face in their lives.”

“In their lives, they struggle with betrayal and power-tripping. Betrayal came at an early age to this generation.”

“Enduring treatment like this from those they held dear, they developed a sharp instinct regarding human nature, finely-tuned to detect those who only mean to take advantage of their trust. They developed an accurate sense of suspicion, learning intuitively how to weed out the lies that people tell themselves.”

“They bond deeply with their chosen companions, often unsatisfied with a shallow connection.”

“The millennials said it best: You Only Live Once. And for that precious thing that one can’t live without, they will spend their whole lives searching. When they find it, they will keep doing it until it kills them. The older generations shriek at this intensity, but it is simply how the millennial mind is wired. “What use of living if you don’t live on the edge?” they ask. After all, the life force is strongest the nearer we are to death. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

“As for power, they have very little of that, having little money. Before they were born, it was pretty much unheard of for a generation to make less than their parents, and as such, their expectant parents, having achieved quite a lot for their own, showered them with gifts and praise, hoping to one day take part in the economic windfall that the special millennials were certain to achieve. Now that they have fallen short of the bar of success set by their parents, they’re demoted in the power hierarchy and considered economic untouchables.”

“From a generation ruled by the Moon to a generation ruled by the Sun, the difference between The Greatest Generation and The Baby Boomers is like night and day.”

“The first and foremost easiest slip-up to get to a millennial’s bad side is power-tripping them. This is a generation that has seen a lot of B.S. in their lives, and nothing you do to hide yours will escape their sensitive lie detectors.”

“In order to live on this Earth together in harmony, humanity must make certain compromises to relate to each other. Everyone must make the necessary adaptations at some point in their lives—as children, they must adapt to their guardians; as adults, to their authorities and governments; and as elderly persons, to their caretakers. Those at the top now may not be there one day, and those at the bottom now could eventually rise to the top. Life is a cycle.”

Cate East
“The differences of the generations may be unsettling or overwhelming now, but rest assured that history merely repeats itself, and that everything is in order.
The millennial hatred phenomenon is merely a representation of a common pattern in human life of favoring, disliking, detesting, accepting, and then finally surrendering to a new generation. It’s happened over history and will happen again.”

Barbara Kingsolver
“Willa was confounded. Millennials she thought she knew: the overmothered cyborgs helplessly sunk in their virtual worlds. From what planet came this new, slightly feral tribe of fixers, makers, and barterers, she had no idea.”
Barbara Kingsolver

David Graeber
“Yet even in the best of cases, the need to be on call, to spend at least a certain amount of energy looking over one's shoulder, maintaining a false front, never looking too obviously engrossed, the inability to fully collaborate with others —all this lends itself much more to a culture of computer games, YouTube rants, memes, and Twitter controversies than to, say, the rock 'n' roll bands, drug poetry, and experimental theater created under the midcentury welfare state.”
David Graeber, Bullshit Jobs: A Theory

Cate East
“In the end, for suffering so much without barely a grunt, for fighting and dying in a War decreed by their elders, for enduring The Great Depression, and for rebuilding their homelands, no other generation of the century has come close to the achievements of aptly-named “The Greatest Generation.”

Carmen Maria Machado
“No one knows what causes it. It’s not passed in the air. It’s not sexually transmitted. It’s not a virus or a bacteria, or if it is, it’s nothing scientists have been able to find. At first everyone blamed the fashion industry, then the millennials, and, finally, the water. But the water’s been tested, the millennials aren’t the only ones going incorporeal, and it doesn’t do the fashion industry any good to have women fading away. You can’t put clothes on air. Not that they haven’t tried.”
Carmen Maria Machado, Her Body and Other Parties

“The rich ruling class has used tribalism, a primitive caveman instinct, to their advantage since the beginning of time. They use it to divide and conquer us. They drive wedges between us peasants and make us fight each other, so we won’t rise up against our rulers and fight them.

You can observe the same old trick everywhere in America today: Red states and blue states are fighting. Christians and Muslims are fighting. Men and women are fighting. Baby Boomers and Millennials are fighting. Black people and white people are fighting.

That doesn’t just happen all by itself. There are always voices instigating these fights.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, Make Racism Wrong Again

“Millennials have found that education does not equal economic mobility, and the works of white patriarchs long dead do little to further our own personal enlightenment beyond operating as an exercise in patience.

We graduate high school with souls long dead; we fill in bubbles on standardized tests hoping that the etch of our Number 2 pencil will inscribe prosperity but we know deep down that that is the lot of the privileged few, and maybe if we were men, maybe if we were white, maybe if we were middle-class it could have been us one day but we know in this lifetime it will never be, so at the first opportunity we stop taking tests and look for the chance to find self-actualization or even latent meaning in anything at all.”
Alice Minium

Diamond Generation! Brainwashed
Generation! Amnesiac
T.V. Bureaucracy Voidoids!

Neutron Bomb blast Babies!
Apocalypse Spermatozoa!
Did you grow up imbibing
Microchip sex waters?
Will you marry me in the
next Millennium?
Must I wait for the Great Year?

Cate East
“This is because only two things can fulfill millennials: First is to be completely understood, accepted and respected by a loyal companion whom they respect themselves—a lifelong seduction with someone they can call their own. This level of understanding and intimacy is the only way they can heal the wounds of their treacherous childhood. The second thing is having enough money to live a lifelong vacation and help people along the way—as they are an emotional generation, they are actually compassionate about their fellowmen though they may not seem like it. Nothing dissatisfies this cohort more than the need to fend for basic necessities, as it goes against their lifelong quest to find fulfillment and reduces them to their base human urges they consider beneath them, like fighting for resources and food—an anathema to this generation who puts a premium on self-actualization.”
