That makes sense. Socialist paradise on the one hand, but RUSSIA! on the other.
I was born in 1986, so I am an "older millenial", although not the oldest possible millenial.
1981 here. Right in the sweet spot of the Cusp. Gen X/Millennial/Xennial. I actually prefer Gen Y for a label as I never associated myself with the turn of the millennium.
I live with a Gen Z dude, my partner's bother. Born in 98. He's a factory worker, likes video games and pro wrestling. Zero interest in politics. Not unlike other millenials I know.
Does he save? Have any goals? Or is it all day by day?
I'm a team lead and interact with multiple Gen Z people, but I can't gauge the differences between us really because of human nature. Meaning, I focus on similarities, and talk about shared interests, like gaming or Linux.
I'd say the primary generational differences are pop culture. So I don't talk to them about it. Yes, those college campus YouTube videos ("SJW owned") make you think they're lunatics. But that is a very specific type of young person, and not the type you encounter in the working world.
Do you find that Millennials or Gen Z'ers in the workplace operate with a sense of entitlement? Do they need to be coddled?
I must say I would take Tulsi over Bernie now, but I accept her best bet is for VP. She's the only candidate who has stood up for Assange.
I can understand why folks are so in love with Bernie, having seen the same thing with the Ron-ulans on the GOP side back in the day, an insurgent force running against the mainstream. Bernie has made it where Ron never did, the mainstream.
I can see the thought of a reset being necessary, for Rome to come more into line with your thinking. I think I would just think of my beliefs as a seperate "denomination" of Catholic until that occured. But, I would want it to occur.
Schism is a very big deal. Trads are very aware of it and the warnings down through history to avoid it if at all possible. One reason why Catholics in general give for why the Catholic Church is the True Church, it has maintained its unity down through the centuries while others have split off and then fractured. The SSPX group I have mentioned is constantly attacked by the mainstream as being in schism, but it is relentless in its assertion that it is "in union" with Rome, it's just a matter of disagreement. If it comes down to a parting of ways, it will be the apocalyptic event people have been waiting for.
Good to know you're aware of it. It's pretty common here, in the land of mega-churches and associates television. I agree with you about the Christian communities.
Do you ever see on TV those commercials for orgs of Christian/Jewish Fellowship that are soliciting donations for relief of poor Jews in Israel? Not something that one sees for Christians in Iraq.
Probably bad, considering the suicide rate of post-operation Trans people, and our private healthcare system that is more than happy to take that money.
There are key differences in the LGBT community (I am gay, did I say that?) regarding the concept of "trans kids" and pre-puberty hormone blockers, and whether that's okay. It's not, IMO, and should be an affront to gay men. How many of us, especially if we had far-left parents, would have been "transitioned" as children, based on our pecuiliarities? Same thing applies to teens and other minors transitioning. It's an adult decision.
Some gay pride parades have eliminated drag, because it's offensive to Trans people. There's about to be a throwdown I think, in the LGBT community. Don't get excited though: PC culture will prevail and gay men will be called the privileged group. This already occurs.
I don't think you've said that before, no. I've read a few things about the divide in the LGBT community over trans issues. Sucks to be the "middle class white man" of the community, huh?
[A]s UBI-only Americans become the majority versus working Americans, something I think is inevitable.
You think this is inevitable? "Each according his ability to each according to his need?" How will that work out long term?
