    We are the only generation to acknowledge just how fucked the next generation is regardless of whether they “get a job” or not. We’ve also experienced enough bald-faced ignorance from previous generations that we have the humility to acknowledge that there might be things as we grow that we just won’t understand, and we can tolerate it either way. Or at least that’s been my experience among my age group. In fact I’ve never been more supportive and proud of the younger millennials and zoomers. Our racist octogenary and parent is handcuffed to the wheel and dead set on speeding the car up as fast as possible toward a firework factory and we all in the car calm and holding each other like, “well, we’re fucked but they’re dying soon and we might have time to hit the brakes”.
