It’s just as true in 2019 as it was in 1919, 1819, even all the way back to 19 A.D.: the next generation of up-and-coming adults is everything that’s wrong with society–according to the previous generation of up-and-coming adults, that is.

Right now, the target of most inter-generational ire is millennials, aka the generation born between the early 1980’s and the late 1990’s/early 2000’s.
