Snapshot of the Homeland generation today

The name "Homeland generation" was coined on the old Fourth Turning forum; there is actually some debate about exactly who chose the term and when. The name was then adopted by Neil Howe (he uses it on his Lifecourse site and in his Forbes articles).
But if you think it's a stupid name, that is certainly your right. But I do find it compelling that the use of the term "Homeland" coincides with the pressing issue of child refugees on the southern border.

I was not on the Fourth Turning forums.

"Homeland generation" was adopted when people thought 9/11 marked the beginning of the crisis.  If it had - if the "war on terror" had proven to be as serious as WWII - then it would have been appropriate.  9/11 turned out to be a false alarm, though.

Child refugees don't mark the beginning of the crisis either.
