Due to confidentiality reasons the name of the reserve cannot be included and names and certain details have been removed.

Millennials a generation bubble wrapped from failure - Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Too special to fail: When the status quo keeps people comfortable, there is little incentive to challenge or change it

 By Lauren Millar

Troy Media

OTTAWA, Ont. / Troy Media/ – “Youth, today! They’re lazy and entitled because everyone received participation trophies!” is a quip millennials hear so often that it has nearly lost all meaning.

But in fact, this joke points to a much larger issue – one that extends beyond millennials to all of society. Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, “True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.” Calling out my generation on its ‘delicate flower persona’ ignores how it emerged in the first place: from older generations and big government.

Most articles I’ve read in defence of millennials argue one of two things: our ‘failure to launch’ is because of the unprecedented combination of a bad economy, high housing prices and skyrocketing student debt; or our generation is not all that different than any previous one and complaining about us is the equivalent of crotchety Grampa Simpson shaking his fist at a cloud.

I don’t disagree with either argument, but they miss the larger point.
