In the world of corporate propaganda, there tends to be a lot of puffery about how important it is for corporations to cater to the changing tastes of the millennial generation — meaning people born between the 1980s and the 2000s.
This is essentially bad information which leads corporations and investors to make bad decisions. Western governments need to massage the bad data about the economic performance of this burgeoning demographic section — particularly of a middle class which is badly burdened by nonproductive debts and uneconomic skillsets. The problems are especially acute in Europe, where high double digit percentages of this generation remain unemployed, despite extremely expensive education certificates certifying how much they ought to be worth.
Part of what makes this generation different is that it’s the first major demographic chunk impacted by mass immigration, both in Europe and the US. Just as school performance data tends to be blamed on bad policy rather than a weakening genetic stock, so does performance in the workplace.
From the perspective of Western states and their institutional friends, it’s important to puff up the future prospects of the future cash streams which will be funding all of those outstanding bonds — quantitative easing nonwithstanding. It’s important to look at labor force participation data rather than unemployment — because students don’t count as ‘unemployed.’ By those measures, young people are working less, while their elders are spending more time in the workforce.
Pundits will tend to portray marriage rates as more of an outmoded measure of morals, but it’s the institution that actually allows societies to replenish themselves. To the extent that Europeans have, by and large, become enervated, and are unwilling to follow these patterns, is the extent to which these countries are burning themselves out. There’s a big complex of pseudo-cameralist thought at the think tanks and in the big publishers dedicated to promoting a narrative that this will all work out, given that we all ‘muddle through’ and that ‘unorthodox monetary policy’ winds up delivering results which it never has.
The other notion is that European countries can somehow magically replace the core demographics who aren’t reproducing with immigrants from the third world.
There is a sort of millennarian hope that a new magical education policy will be developed which will ‘close the gap,’ despite no evidence that this will happen, and indeed decades of evidence to the contrary — that, owing to genetic differences, there is no replacement for over a thousand years of divergent evolution, that there is no teaching method which can correct for genetic differences between populations.
This isn’t a generation that’s all that likely to take off in the way that these states need them to take off. It has some people who can be salvaged. It’s important to counter the false story that these people will somehow start producing enough cash to cover the public debt loads which have been foisted upon them, because avoiding the happy-talk sooner will help us solve these problems sooner.

For some reason the only thing that goes through my mind when I look at millennials is how utterly ill-equipped and ill-prepared they are for the their third world competitors. Once the flood gates open properly, these poor sods wont have a snowflakes chance in hell of surviving. What an utterly horrifying legacy they’ve been left with.
The entire ruling class of the west needs to be decapitated.
Just goes to show nothing like good hard work to build character, the will to accomplish the hard things in life and an audacious bit of indomitable spirit goes a long way to creating vivacious society with morals and virtue.
Outmoded ideas I know. But it is my story and Im sticking to it.
I see a few “melinials” who are beginning to grok these fundamental attributes of civility and character. It is sink or swim for them. Nobody is going to lift their boats but them. It is good to see. Can’t remember who said it, lot of credence in the axiom you can ignore the truth, but you can’t ignore the consequences of the truth.
But for those melinials trapped in the catch 22 of statist paradises, I suspect either gross upheaval of society or the statists use of diaspora, pogrom, or war to cull the hoards of useful dupes and potential class enemies, they are mostly dead men walking and have no clue their fate because they don’t understand the dignity of their liberty.
That’s is the cost of being a useful dupe, at some point your usefulness is used up, and its lights out for you partner.
We will see pretty soon I suspect. The centers of power are in a terrible flux. It is a race to see who controls all the marbles. The bloodshed and genocide by the state in the 21st century was a prelude to what could transpire. These systems of state and the actors running them have created a tempest in a teapot of biblical proportions. Gonna be a doozy this time around.
I suspect the melinials are in part going to be cannon fodder for ole Bill Ayers agenda to liquidate millions in order to obtain his concept of paradise.
He and his ilk certainly made a worthy go of milking the educated melinials by using them to milk society of prosperity.
What a grand con.

As the rulers actively try to destroy the productive classes it has always made me wonder: who do they think are going to pay for all those massive entitlements down the road: not the least of which are public sector pensions and benefits. It certainly won’t be the armies of low skill, low intelligence workers they are importing from the third world.

There has been mass immigration to the usa before. All the various White ethnic groups that poured into the usa way back when and did more or less the same kind of damage to our culture, working man’s wage etc. Which is why the second version of the Klan was so popular up north
Yes. It wasn’t good then, and it’s not good now.
SFC Ton says
LOL.truer words have never been spoken
What’s worse is the nation of immigrants myths seems to really hem yankees up on shutting down the broader and they freak out when I tell them my family did not immigrate here, we came to conquer and colonize. The difference is beyond them
Robert What? says
There is a major difference between immigration then and immigration now. In earlier times immigrants had to prove they could support themselves or that their families could support them, so they wouldn’t be burdens on the taxpayers. Today they are encouraged to become burdens on the taxpayers.
SFC Ton says
Note really. They killed the value of native born labor, changed the culture and where a key element of progressive advancing their agenda.
There is more to being anti immigration then immigrants are a drain on the tax roles. We have that welfare system to.exploit because of immigrants.
Germans from the failed 1848 Marxist rebellion came here and help.organize the GOP. The progressive big government, big business tax and spend political party
It’s been all bad, all the time for Founding Stock
Robert What? says
I can’t say I understand your point. Are you saying that once the US started accepting non-Brittish immigrants it was all downhill? Why not go back further and lament the loss by the Dutch? You don’t think there’s any difference between a wave of immigrants from northern Europe vs a wave of immigrants from northern Africa?
SFC Ton says
Yep once the usa allowed mass immigration from outside the core group of colonists it was all over but the crying. Dutch etc made up a very small % of founding stock. But we know today that ulster.Scots all over the usa vote alike, pro gun, small govt etc and that Germans etc no matter where they are vote against guns etc and for more govt.
Albion Seed is the book that hits on that… I think. I read so much the titles get jumbled up.
The wave of Whites from Southern, Northern and Eastern Europe are the voting blocks that gave the yankees the numbers to drive home the progressive agenda. Same for catholics.
It is what it is. Just because they are White doesn’t mean they don’t favor consolidated power and do so at the genetic level.
Hbd chick hit on this some too, again if I recall correctly
