I think they need some sort of lifestyle change OR they are douchebags who think they are better than everyone and are probably not so great of human beings themselves

Its mostly about the different concerns each generation had and how different they are. What older folk considered important in their time isn't considered at all in this era, leading to the cranky old man syndrome. I'm starting to feel the same way I think, not because people nowadays didn't go through what we did, but because society seems to be devolving and enjoying it. I could not care less about the new tech and latest troubles and issues people seem to care about, but the way people have become reliant on tech to survive is a giant leap backwards to the advancement of society. Every time I think of something like this I remember the movie WALL-E.

I guess you could sum it up basically by saying old people are angry that youngsters take what they have for granted.

fun fact, when we get old, we're gonna bitch at the next generation simply for not being our generation.

FACT!


Yes, this happens a lot. I've heard some parents moan. They said their parents had complaints and even the great grandparents had their rants.



we're gonna be even more crotchety simply because we're already mean to each other on the internet.

Can you imagine being an internet flamer at like 60?


this is somehow hilarious

The current generation is no better or worse than the previous, as far as individual people go.

As a millennial (A 90's kid) there are some trends in the current generation I dislike, but I don't hate
those born in the current generation nor do I think they are any worse than those from mine.

I suggest you not take it too seriously when someone insults your generation.
Just remember that the generation before you was mocked by the generation before
them, and so on and so forth, all the way to the beginning of known history.

Here is one of the oldest quotes I know about this topic:

"Do not say: 'Why has it happened that the former days proved to be better than these?' for it is not due to wisdom that you have asked about this." Ecclesiates 7:10

There's a good one from Socrates which also discusses how we view the present generation as being worse than the previous, but I can't locate it right now.

Edit: And while I'm at it, I feel the need to point out the new generations will always mock previous generations, as many posts in this thread prove. Those of us not of the current generation should also follow the same guidelines: Don't take insults directed at those of your generation too seriously, as we also mocked those before us.

Well it is true that each generation declines worse in some way, so it makes sense the generations before always hate on the new gen.

It's probably just jealousy now that we are the oldies and they're doing things their way that we don't agree with, at least that's how I see it.

Disliking the new generation because they like Minecraft, Skylanders, COD and new Disney shows is really petty when you think about it.

I'll probably be somewhat salty whenever I'm 45+, no longer attractive and new broads take my place.

As an extreme anti natalist, I want us to stop having more generations, so when ever a new generation is created it makes me mad. Regardless I just can't believe some of the laws, I mean why can I not farm and slaughter a goat in my back yard? Why? You cowards!

I hate on this generation and I am this generation. I despair of what other people my age are doing.

They're part of a long and proud tradition of thinking that them dern'd kids aren't paying any attention to "real entertainment", have things "too good", and wouldn't survive a "real day's work" going back pretty much to the dawn of humankind. Don't worry. Everyone gets a turn on that ride. Be patient.

what generation?

the tech generation?

it's all the haters fault. they should have done a better job when they were young. What did they do when they were young in the 70s 80s and 90s?

They created Rap and Hip Hop. the generation before them warned them the music would have a negative impact on the youth,promoting gangsta lifestyle, drugs, killing, disrespect for women.

they spent a lot of time working and silenced their kids with money and stuff. as a result we became self indulgent.

they create the tech industry. as a result our attention span is a whole lot shorter than that of our grandparents. we need instant gratification, resulting from the internet uses and iphone.--Thanks Bill and Steve

they sent a lot of jobs out the country and brought in lot of immigrants because they wanted to pay low wages and weaken unions. as a result we have to compete for few jobs and suffer with increased racial tentions because of economic inequality.

So what do they expect? how else are we suppose to act? the generation before ours just should have done a better job.

Well, in the case of new Disney shows, sentimentality for previous generations can be a double-edged sword:
It takes being a more senior, experienced Child of the 80's to look at something like Wizards of Waverly Place and want to throttle the director, producers and network executive, screaming in their faces, "WHY, in the name of all that is sacred and decent in freakin' humanity do you make every single darn one of your sitcoms look like The Facts of Life and Silver Spoons? I was ALIVE when Saved By the Bell was on network TV, and we didn't like it then either!--What in heavens' name are you teaching our children, who don't know any better???"

Every generation have their own flaws. I just believe that the current generation take things for granted too easily, which makes them less appreciative of what they have compared to people of the less fortunate.

The world is not actually getting worse, it doesn't suck as much as the previous generation does. It is just the mindset of what people perceive others in smaller groups. They only see the bad sides because news usually reports bad stuffs that happens locally or internationally.

TL;DR - Every generation sucks. Just be more appreciative.
