Hello all!

How do you think the emo subculture fits the millennial archetype?

I mean, the civic archetype is supposed to be strong, rational, soldierly. Emo is the opposite of that. But it was a millennial subculture.

My solution is that millennials were developing into an artistic generation before the crisis hit. Emo was especially popular in 2006-8. After the fall of Lehmann Brothers it suddenly lost ground. I wonder if it will come back during the high.
Hopefully not. Show me one more pathetic subculture.
