“Here are some broad descriptions about the generation known as Millennials: They’re narcissistic. They’re lazy. They’re coddled. They’re even a bit delusional.
Those aren’t just unfounded negative stereotypes about 80 million Americans born roughly between 1980 and 2000. They’re backed up by a decade of sociological research. The National Institutes of Health found that for people in their 20s, Narcissistic Personality Disorder is three times as high than the generation that’s 65 or older. In 1992, 80 percent of people under 23 wanted to one day have a job with greater responsibility; ten years later, 60 percent did. Millennials received so many participation trophies growing up that 40 percent of them think they should be promoted every two years – regardless of performance. They’re so hopeful about the future you might think they hadn’t heard of something called the Great Recession.”
Well, they’re right about the “save us all” part, anyway.
I’m sure most of the people who read this blog will already know all of the information in this article from MJ, but it’s worth repeating, and it’s one of the very few articles that has collected a whole group of practices that are permitted here and banned elsewhere for health or animal welfare reasons. I’m sure you can come up with some more to add to the list, like GMO regulations in places like Europe and India which severely restrict or even ban GMO crops from wide spread commercial production, meat import restrictions, etc.
