Positive early signs about Generation Z over the Millennials


Recommended Posts

One generation does try to distinguish themselves from later generations and the following article shows some good early positive signs of Generation Z over the Millennials  They include

1.  They want to go to prom in more modest dress.

2. They are less likely to elect a transgender for prom king or queen.  Go back to the good old days where boys are boys and girls are girls. 

" “You’d expect younger to equal more liberal, but that’s not what we’re seeing,” explains Dorsey, whose main findings were around Gen Z and financial behaviors, which are indicative of much more, he says. “Their behavior says, ‘We don’t want to end up like millennials — entitled, a trophy generation, with mountains of college debt. … They are intentionally choosing less expensive colleges.”

It is still early and things could change but perhaps they might end up a little more religious and and a little less of the secular worship stuff.  A more healthy balance between the two might set them apart from the Millennials.

So the generation with the worst economic prospects since the depression are an entitled trophy generation? Gotta love the Baby Boomers, the generation born collectively with a silver spoon in their mouth, decrying those in a more adverse climate.

Nehor, I just downloaded a book titled "A Generation of Sociopaths: How the Baby Boomers Betrayed America." I think you'd like it.

It is so annoying to hear all the time about how terrible Millennials are. Here's some findings from Jana Riess's survey of Mormons millennials, and many of them are positive: http://religionnews.com/2017/05/24/10-things-to-know-about-millennial-mormons/.

The more politically balanced statistic makes me happy. I hope it's actually accurate for the US.

Yeah me too! It doesn't seem to match up entirely to my experience with people my age at BYU. It seems like there is more diversity than older Mormons, but that there is still a large majority of conservatives. Maybe it is more balanced among older Millennials or people not in Provo.

I'm thinking it may be more balanced outside of provo. Though even here there's more political diversity or at least flexibility than I see in the older counterparts, I think.

I used to blame fellow millennials, but I now blame almost all of the current ills facing our nation on the baby boomers:

"The Boomers blamed the Vietnam War for their rebellion against authority, but the truth is that it had nothing to do with Vietnam.  The Boomers rebelled against authority because their elders allowed them to.  Every generation rebels against its parents; the Greatest Generation was widely derided by its parents as the least moral, most sexually loose, most frivolous generation in history.  Throughout human history, there has been a tendency for each generation to see its children as unworthy.  The difference between the Boomers and the Greatest Generation is that the Greatest Generation’s parents told them to sit down and shut up, while the Greatest Generation allowed the Boomers to do whatever they wanted.

Brought up on the self-esteem mantras preached by Dr. Benjamin Spock, an avowed socialist, the Baby Boomers took full advantage of the laxity of their parents.  They slept around, in the process promulgating both STDs and single motherhood; they derided capitalism and promoted redistributionism; they undermined the American military and celebrated America’s defeat in Vietnam; they pushed for abortion, homosexual marriage, and racial radicalization.  And they did all of this while living off Mommy and Daddy.

As they grew older, the Baby Boomers refused to age.  They got married later and had less children.  They got divorced more often.  They pursued riskier activities and riskier financial strategies.  They bought plastic surgeries they could not afford and made Botox a household word.  They refused to plan for the future.

Ironically enough, the Baby Boomers’ focus on their endless youth cut short the youths of their own children.  In order for children to truly experience childhood, there must be a parent in the room to ensure safety, security, and happiness.  When parents are absent, children must grow up fast – and the Baby Boomers were too busy playing “friends” with their children to be adults."

--Ben Shapiro

This study on generation Z looks promising though.  Learn and build on the mistakes of others, usually how it goes.

Darn Baby Boomers, how embarrassing. Yeah, Millenials are definitely good kids!

Have to say, gen y and millenials are a mixed bag, just about everyone I know has been divorced and it never ends well.  It all comes down to money and morals, or a lack of.  When no one is around to be a parent the kids usually turn into worse versions of their parents, big suprise.

The Greatest Generation came through a Great Depression and two World Wars. They were determined to not have their kids go though a similar mess. Hence the slightly more lenient attitudes for their Baby Boomers. And the slide continued. We are on the verge of a new economic shakeup .And War ? Well,there is more saber rattling than I have heard for a while.

I am on the leading edge of the Boom. About all I have left to give the world is a faint crackling sound from afar. :vava:

I'm just going to sit back with a nice cup of coffee or if its late coco and watch it all burn.

Perhaps it would be wise to get a two years supply of your preferred drink as well as a few extra cups. If it all hits the fan, there will be shortages. Oh, and don't forget toilet paper. The person with a room full will be very popular.

This day and age it doesn't pay to advertise you stock pile, even my LDS friends keep quiet about that stuff now.  You live near a big city?  You're going to be the first to be looted once wal mart runs out of stock.  You can only shoot so many looters, sadly there's no such thing as infinite ammo codes in real life.

Did you notice that over 30% have left the church?  Yikes.

Note that this is data only about currently identified Mormons (1155 in our survey), and not about former Mormons or those who have left the Church (541 in our survey). Their responses are tabulated separately.
