Millennials: A Menacing Metamorphosis To The Status Quo

Last week, Gordon T. Long and Charles Hugh Smith discussed in an interview of the current generational shift occurring in the United States. The interview is called Called Millennials: A Menacing Metamporsis. To note, both Gordon T. Long and Charles Hugh Smith understand their baby boomer generation is the status quo, and is currently being uprooted by the millennials, who are slated to take the reins in the next 8 years. In my opinion, this should be coined the ‘clash of generations’, where ultimately the millennials will be stitching their beliefs and ideas on the American fabric. As expressed in the interview, the status quo is underestimating the serious ramifications of this generational shift.

General shifts in America are completely normal and have produced serious economic and or social consequences through time.  One of the best blueprints and guides of generational shifts is the Strauss–Howe generational theory explaining the four cycles of with-in a full-generation (80-100 years). In fact, starting in the 2007/2008 period,  Strauss–Howe generational theory explains how the United States started the generation shift called the Fourth Turning where the old older is destroyed giving light to the new order i.e. Millennials: A Menacing Metamporsis. 

The interview touches on 10 important points of how the millennial beliefs and ideas will change the American landscape in the next 8 years. Changes that we see today include household formation, retail trends, transportation trends, and the shift to urbanization.

During the US Presidential Election, the most noticeable idea that the millennial generation was underestimated by the status quo was the unanimous support for Bernie Sanders rather than the status quo Hillary Clinton.

When peaking into Bernie Sanders’s platform, it understood as far-left leaning, which could highlight the core belief system of the millennials. This may serve as a guide in the direction America is headed.

Millennials are virtually split when it comes to Socialism or Capitalism. This is a much different view than the status quo, which alludes to serious economic adjustments are on the horizon.

As of 2017, millennials are 36% of the workforce and in 8 years are projected to be 75% of the workforce.

The millennial generation has a much different composition of demographics verse the prior generation. Leads to social adjustments…

Here is 1-4 changes of how the millennial generation is different from the past. Economic stagnation has shaped the millennial generation in to who they’re today.

Student debt levels are a defining point of the millennials generation. No other generation has ever taken on this much student debt despite being the most educated.

Millennials are currently making economic decisions based on the burdensome of student loan debt.

A major shift in real estate as millennials demand urban centers, which is a complete flip from prior generations pushing out to suburbia.

Millennials will have a profound change in the transportation industry. Technology and crowd sharing has pushed millennials to Uber and Lyft. This will be challenging for the auto industry to maintain auto sales, along with energy producers of crude products.

Millennials are already having a drastic change in the retail space. The technology millennials are adapting is contributing to the retail apocalypse.

The millennial generation has been subjected to fear and war in their entire lifespan. This generation has witnessed the negative effects of globalism hallowing out the middle class around them. Millennials search for security, which may explain why Bernie Sanders was the best platform of choice, because he offered ‘light at the end of the tunnel’.

More social ramifications for the US economy are the millennials thought of various forms of debt should be forgiven. The old order has produced a debt ball and chain.

Last but not least, Gordon T. Long and Charles Hugh Smith forgive the millennials and blame the educational system for why the millennials think the way they do.

For the next 8 years one should sit down, strap in, and hold-on. The generational rollercoaster will involve chills and thrills, but it’s completely normal. All we say is just be on the right side of history.

History is a bunch of lies.

There are the lies of the official narrative, and then there are the lies of the controlled opposition narratives.

"Millennials are morons."

But aren't they a reflection of the parents that programmed them for life-as-a-Moron?

I mean, who out there wasn't raised by dysfunctional parents? Name one family, just one.

How are millennials supposed to change the status quo when their faces are always buried in their iPhones?

They will make petitions like these two retards over here. 

Looks like the pro .gov leftards are in full swing over ZH.

Snowflakes, afraid you're losing the narrative with the Daily Westerner shitting on your head at every turn?

anybody else noticing how this whole comment thread, which was (per the post) supposed to be about the hopless dumbfuck numbnuts millenials, went completely off the rails? within the first 10-15 comments? 

and all it took was one (1) fuckwit troll shilling his bullshit spamsite, and one (1) concerned citizen pointing out he's a troll. 

Soros couldn't get better results if he was paying for it! no....wait....

Thank you, Mr. Blue, for alerting me to this once in a lifetime opportunity!!!

Woop here we go, we got one thats gone off the rails in Wisconsin...

"As the search for Joseph A. Jakubowski (M/W, DOB: 07/21/84, 5’10”, 200 lbs, green eyes and brown hair) continues this Sunday night, investigators are continuing to work through the evening to attempt to locate this armed and dangerous suspect. Despite extensive efforts, Jakubowski remains at large," Rock County Sheriff Robert D. Spoden announced in a press release.

Authorities are paying special attention to churches, as Jakubowski reportedly mailed a 161-page anti-religious manifesto to President Donald Trump on Tuesday."

Shoot to kill bitchez ;-)

Funny they didn't describe him as just "a man" or a "teen" -guessing he must be 'melanin-deficient'.

"...expressed a desire to save everyone by taking out one politician at a time."

 

-Maybe not so crazy, after all...

LetThemEatRand's picture

In hindsight, the Millennials were correct about Bernie over Hillary OR Trump.  

 

nmewn's picture

Yeah, why not just go full retard authoritarian socialist and remove all doubt, right? ;-)

LetThemEatRand's picture

Now that I know what Trump is about, I'd rather have Bernie.  One of the main reasons I voted for Trump instead of staying home or voting for Stein was because I thought Hillary would start WWIII.  

I still think Bernie would have done what Trump promised regarding bringing the troops home.

nmewn's picture

One thing I've always appreciated about you is your honesty. Sometimes it takes a little prodding...lol...but eventually you always let it out. But there is a few things we can agree on, re-instituting Glass-Steagall and banning execs from counterfeiting their company's stawk for compensation are two off the top of my head.

But I'll never agree to confiscating someone elses labor in service to the "greater good" (the state) by calling it "a right" or any of the other mish-mash utopian garbage that passes for enlightened thought among the left.

LetThemEatRand's picture

But you're okay with Trump wanting another $50B for the military, on top of $500B or whatever the real number is?  You do realize that 100 cents on the dollar of military spending is someone else's labor going to feed the greater good machine, right?  

nmewn's picture

He's going to give you your "You didn't build that!" trillion dollar infrastructure project isn't he? 

I would think you would be pissing your pants with joy ;-)

And...later.

divingengineer's picture

Seems like a lot to spend and still have to take shit from a pudgy little tinpot dictator that rules a nation of skeletons.

new game's picture

all you need to understand is two party tyranny. recent history speaks loudly in this accord.

as far atda bern goes, great, i don't give one flyin fuck because i will not be payin shit in taxes and they can run this fucker into the ground as far i see. i'll be dead and could care less wtf this fuked up country becomes. oh, and i have grandchildern. they can fight the fight...

oh, and this is a world wide thing in the making for the last 40 years. claw back is a bitch, lol...

Mustafa Kemal's picture

"I still think Bernie would have done what Trump promised regarding bringing the troops home."

I agree. He also would bring back glass stegal and repeal citizens united

new game's picture

moar dreams. wake the fuk up. bernies promises would go just like trumps. not happening. the dark state would not allow the wars to stop. troops would stay, peace keeping ya know. two party tyranny with deep state running the show, fuking period...

new game's picture

oh and goldman saks would allow the repeal of glass steg, come on man, get real. to think bernie would make a difference is just plain cog dis on steriods. sorry, but this fight club and you are dillusional. open the eyes and start seeing the obvious outcomes to all this wish/think/drain the swamp platitude bullshit fed to the masses every 4 years...

whatamaroon's picture

Bernie would have gotten swallowed up in the DC swamp like Trump.

canisdirus's picture

I wouldn't be so sure. The dude has been in that cesspool for decades and he has never wavered from his positions. I might not agree with most of his positions, but I deeply respect how consistent he has been over the years.

canisdirus's picture

People hate on me for saying this, but of the three, I'd much prefer Bernie now. Both he and Trump ran on a similar platform when it came to isolationism, but Trump has flipped almost instantly. If there's one thing about Bernie, it's that he's totally consistent in his voting record. I don't agree with all his socialist positions (although I have pointed out that we'd all be better off if healthcare was simply socialized if we can't get out of this ridiculous ACA mess), but sometimes you have to take the good with the bad.

meditate_vigorously's picture

Because in your mind there is no "proof" that Bernie was complicit in nominating Hillary rather than being opposition?

I bet you think you are a very rational person.

CaptainObvious's picture

Well, Trump is turning out to be a complete globalist, so perhaps.  But if you want to see what the presidency under Bernie would have been, just watch as New York sinks under the burden of providing free college education for all comers.  And then multiply those effects by 49.  The only thing Bernie would have done is crash the system sooner.  The Hildabeast and Trump are can-kickers.  Bernie sets fire to the can and drops it in a vat of flammable chemicals.

The Tragedy of the Minimum Wage is a narrative that reveals a lot about what a Bernie world would be like.

LetThemEatRand's picture

Guys, we already had a minimum wage before this election.  We already had globalists and everything else.  

I think Bernie was for real on the idea of pulling back the global police force.  In hindsight, that was the most important issue.  Everything else we could have dealt with in due course.

adr's picture

Bernie believes you can give people a living for free and the economy will be rockin. 

Socialism doesn't work. 

To each according to his ability and each according to his need is the greatest fallacy ever dreamed of. 

It means nobody will work harder than anyone else and expect more than everyone else in return. 

Syrin's picture

SOCIALISM has killed more people than ALL WORLD WARS COMBINED, and your concern is troops overseas?   Hey moron, you should be more concerned about how much socialism DESTROYS a nation irrevocably.   My God, they didn't teach you fuckhead snowflakes anything in school, did they?

Rjh's picture

Beachhouse Bernie, you mean? He'd get bought just like anyone does when their family gets threatened. Don't be so naive, snowflake. Even your dreamboy Rand voted to extend the NDAA/Patriot Act. 

scintillator9's picture

Most likely none of us here will know if Bernie was offered "Plata o Plomo" in regards to the beach house.

I DO recall how he did seem to sport some unusual "shaving cut"

 

Rjh's picture

Interesting had not seen the cut before. He got Reid'ed.

Nostradamus gazes into the mists and sees lots of Millennials being given one-way helicopter rides to the middle of the Pacific.

Communism sounds great until you run out of money. The US is on the verge of bankruptcy if the debt ceiling is not renewed on 4/28/2017.

Just like living with roommates while you are a student. It always sounds great. Until you are the one paying the rent for 8 slackers and the fridge is empty, the toilets are filthy and strangers tramping through the place are stealing personal items. Communism, and communal thinning sounds great, in theory but sucks in practice.

I HATE COMMUNISTS AND FUCKING COMMUNISM!

LetThemEatRand's picture

That's all true, but we do not live in a communist nation.  The .1% have gained wealth because we live in a fascist neo-feudal nation.

divingengineer's picture

Awe full lot of downvotes, I thin you have hit a nerve.
Now twist the knife, I like hearing snowflakes squeal.
Snowflakes come in all forms, it seems.

adr's picture

Socialism will always devolve into fascism. Central authority of any kind will always steal what it needs to survive. In the end you will always end up with a Stalin. 

Socialism will never end with peace and prosperity. 

meditate_vigorously's picture

Millennials are much more conscious of the value of relationships than previous generations. I think it is safe to say that the "left vs right" and "capitalist vs socialist" dialectics are lies that they are not entirely subscribing to, thus the "analysis" of this article is deeply flawed and extremely hysterical.

nmewn's picture

Because communist party politburo members didn't/don't have their summer homes on the lake...lol.

Perhaps if "the state"...in all its caring, altruistic benevolence passed another law...or sumpin ;-)

LetThemEatRand's picture

Funny how anti-statist you say you are as you continue to support Trump, head of state.

nmewn's picture

Funny how people can temporarily change their alliances when their sworn enemy is in someone elses crosshairs isn't it? I care not how the left is destroyed as long as they are.

LetThemEatRand's picture

Trump is feeding the left.  Have you watched MSM lately?  

Ideology is a dangerous thing, nmewn.  It blinds even those who think they can see.

Fascal rascal's picture

Fuck what you call msm, sideways.

Haven't you watched?

Can you .... see?

Narrative is more dangerous.

Bitch. Whining bitch. Crying bitch. Give up bitch. Bury head in sand bitch.

Pa fucking thetic.
