The next "gen thing" is going to be a deep desire for "the good ole days."
Don't mean to cast a negative mist over the aforementioned dreams, but, there were and won't be any "good ole days."
If you want "stuff" you have to work for it. Usually this means working extra jobs and spending carefully. Unfortunately most of us find out the hard way.
After years in the workplace, I had friends and co-workers who bought impressive homes, but had no money or available credit to furnish the homes.
I believe all generations have a basic good work ethic. There are other economic forces active here that are not being addressed by business, accedamia and government. Social change and the courage to effect its movement is critical to truly opening up the pathways to meaningful education both from a social enviroment and the practical ability to earn a living wage.
Pay the bills and spend some time to eliminate the elitist conservative movement that would and has deprived the average citizen from the education it needs and deserves.
Work and have fun,
