It’s pretty fashionable for those of us on the right side of the aisle to dig at millennials for being overly sensitive, idealistic, disconnected, and so on — but is the generation’s experience really that different from those that came before?
This is the question YouTube commentator Lauren Southern had for self-described Austrian identitarian leader Martin Sellner, a controversial cultural critic in the country. What followed was an eye-opening conversation about what exactly makes millennials different from their predecessors.
It’s certainly true that previous generations have all had to grapple with political identities — and that new ways of thinking routinely clash with the old. However, millennials truly may be living a unique experience.
Unlike the baby boomers, millennials have grown up without any memory of what Sullner describes as the “golden age of liberalism” — a time when the free market was seen as a precious treasure to be protected rather than a hierarchical order to be overthrown.
So, what exactly makes millennials so unique? Is there a hard reason for the “snowflake” phenomenon? Follow the whole conversation in the video below.
