To understand why millennials hate you, you must understand capitalism. To understand capitalism, imagine being forced to play a game of Monopoly where one person starts with nearly all the money in the bank and all the properties… and what about you? Fuck you, that’s what.


@aral I need to excuse my now following unpolitiness.

But what bullcrap is that? That's just ageism, hiding itself behind the veneer of social criticism. The capital distribution is not the fault of one generation (e.g the boomers).

But is the fault riding for now roughly 200 - 300 years a system called capitalism, which eats people, environments and produces capital and destroys the living conditions of what it needs to run.

A millenial speaking.



Well, it is true that there was a huge change in the 80's with the so called "neo-capitalism", with the power going from the entrepreneurs to the stockholders, from the companies to the stock markets. Culminating to what we have now: the most unequal capitalism system we've had since the creation of capitalism (I believe).

It did happen in a few generations in my opinion. But then the hate is up to you of course 😅

@fantazo Read up on Thatcher, Greenspan, and neoliberalism.

@aral It's still bullshit. Referencing Thatcher, Greenspan and Neoliberalism only to make your argument right is just name dropping.

Neoliberalism is bullshit, nothing new. That Thatcher destroyed the social state of Great Britain, nothing new. She even was proud that now the laborparty that she corrupted through her actions.

Ageism is still crap, need to be treated as fascism in itself, a way of trying to hinder solidarity and make each person fighting for herself.

I think you should not interpret the phrase "why millenials hat you" as "if you read this, every millenial hates you" (because that would be silly)

But many millenials have been given the very short end of the straw, and are justifiably unhappy about hearing from smug, well-off older people about how lazy they were.

I'm a bit too old to be a millenial, but comparing the stuff I dealt with to the lives of people 10, 15 years younger: I had no idea how easy I had it
