If you are an xer you should remember when boomers were saying you guys were the lazy good for nothing arseholes. You are just repeating the ignorance. Elders also said the same of boomers in their youth.

Truth is, they were saying much worse things about Generation X and in the case of Eric the Obtuse and those like him they still are.  Millies have tended to be a mixed bag, those with a clue tend to work out well.  When a Millie suffers from the snowflake syndrome then they can be quite insufferable.

Well, I certainly know what Twenge says and Mark Bauerlein about us with his book "The Dumbest Generation." What makes that laughable as he is of the baby boomer generation which Neil Howe stated declined in records of SAT scores at the same age. Probably partly due to being too busy protesting or getting high or joining cults. (Note I said partly due which implies I know other things would have contributed as well). My mother left school to go for the money for instance. Something I cannot do personally. I have to enjoy what I do as I do not have the patience to put up with anything else. As for mixed bag, well that can be said of any generation really. Every generation has its insufferable and its gems. It is just the loudest ones are noticed more and they tend to reveal the terrible side of their generation and their own nasty traits.

Take from someone in a position to know, the Boomers are on the average a complete loss and the years don't seem to have improved them much.  They definitely do not have the competence of their GI parents which is also a big part of the problem.

The Millies all too often need to have things spoonfed to them because the school system here doesn't teach them to think.  After a few years of dealing with reality they start to correct that problem.
I totally agree with that. We have that same problem here. They teach us what to think and the school system (at least for some schools) the quality of education is very poor. Even some tertiary level schools they do not give you the skills you need to realistically prepare you for the real world. Which is why after chatting to the CEO of a gaming company he told me exactly what I needed to be considered as a concept artist. So I realized despite the fact I have a  Bachelor degree they did not tell me the truth about my level of skill. Not to be knocked down I learned, scouted around for the best school to prepare me for what I want to do and have been accepted. I enroll tomorrow. It certainly has told me to not trust every school to tell me the truth nor prepare me for the real world. Suddenly certificates and degrees mean nothing when one has actually been ill prepared. The positive though is that degree has been useful to get me where I am today. Accepted at one of the best universities in the world which focuses on preparing you for the industry as well as getting students loads of contacts. I needed this year to give me the hard knocks to knock some sense into me and point me in the right direction. I am grateful for it. Being pampered and lied to never taught me a thing.
