Millennials are by far the most sophisticated and forward thinking generation in America. Their tech savviness and passion for social justice makes them a force to be reckoned with. Historically oppressive institutions such as universities, corporations and churches are consistently bending to meet their demands, as they continue to wage war against historical injustice.
Millennials are the most college educated generation in the US, holding a wider range of qualifications than has ever before been available. Armed with these college degrees, smart phones and social media, Millennials are spreading their message of social justice like wild fire, uniting millions of people behind causes such as free education, universal healthcare and Black Lives Matter. Within hours, Millennial social justice warriors can organise a rally of hundreds of people to protest against Trump, call for open borders, or demand a living wage. It’s no surprise that with aggressive activism like this, Millennials are changing the world at an electrifying pace.
Millennials are motivated by principles of fairness, tolerance and justice. They have a natural skepticism of unregulated free markets, and rules imposed by old white men. They believe that society can be a fun, diverse and safe place for everyone. They don’t believe life should mean working as a wage slave for the white patriarchy, or following tedious rules imposed by religions and families. Instead they have a vision of true freedom, where women can be single mothers, and people can make a living through blogging, app development and activism, while our energy needs are taken care of by sustainable green energy sources like solar panels and wind farms. The world they envision is soft, rule free, risk free, and worry free, where everyone is taken care of and able to do whatever they please. It’s an ideology that focuses on meeting peoples’ basic needs, so that they can stop working and start truly living; and through effective social activism, they are rapidly turning this vision into reality.
