The Activist Generation?
#1
That's what I've come up with in place of Generation Z, for two reasons: First, since "Millennials" has pretty much completely replaced "Generation Y" to refer to that generation, calling its next-juniors "Generation Z" no longer makes any sense; second, no one born in 1999 or later (where I fix as its first birth year) has any memory at all of 9/11 (which I assign as the start of a first-time-ever "3 1/2T" which will end with the 2020 election, when a redux of the Civil War Anomaly will occur - indeed, another civil war itself, and a much worse one); and third, the "Marches For Our Lives" were this generation's version of the "Free Speech Movement" on the Berkeley campus in 1964, with David Hogg as its, how shall we say, "less than masculine" leader, as Minister Farrakhan called Michael Jackson (and this generation's disdain for the use of force is clearly tied in with its failure to have witnessed 9/11).

And the Second Civil War will make this an Idealist generation - which they already show all the signs of being.

1999 borns may still remember 9/11, but it's highly (I mean highly) unlikely.

They were mostly out of school when Parkland happened, as well.

I hardly remember 9/11 myself. I really don't think it's going to end up being the start of the crisis period.

I'm actually saying that 1998 is the last Millennial cohort. The Parkland protests are important because they show an inherent disdain for the use of the force - marking the Activist Generation as the New Boomers if I'm right and there is a Second Civil War breaking out with the 2020 election and ending in 2025.

The oldest at high school when Parkland and the March for our Lives protest happened were those born in 2000, not 1999.
