What kind of advice could have been followed to defray the fact that the median home price in Seattle has doubled in the past 5 years to almost a million dollars coupled with a 40 year trend of wage suppression? Isn’t going to an affordable college, studying something marketable, working hard, and living within your means “the harder road” you’re talking about?Joe B wrote: ↑February 1st, 2019, 7:18 am+1. Many voices have been raised over the past 15 years. All they needed to do was listen to people who were giving good solid advice which of course means a harder road versus listening to those softer whispers of the easy path to success, fame and wealth.Robert.A.Jr. wrote: ↑January 31st, 2019, 6:22 pmThis could potentially be the most pathetic drivel that I have ever read on this site, and that’s saying a lot.Nathan Smyth wrote: ↑January 31st, 2019, 5:58 pm
The Boomers [and the Silents] have no idea how horrible the economic prospects are for the Millennials.
The average Boomer doesn't even understand the debacle of the Student Loan Debt nightmare [much less what happens to housing prices when you're falling off the trailing edge of a temporally isolated demographic wavelet].
No generation in the entire history of Western Civilization was told more lies than were the Millennials.
And none [or at least far too few] of the Boomers [or the Silents] were paying enough attention to the unfolding tragedy of the Millennials to even have known that they ought to have been speaking out about the lies - assuming that Boomers or Silents would have had the character necessary to try to defy the ubiquitous flood of lies - but if they had had that sort of character, then they wouldn't have been ignoring the plight of the millennials in the first place.
Of course, the big problem for the Millennials now is how many of them swallowed the lies, hook line & sinker.
Because no one stepped forward to warn them that none of it was true.
The world today is just a fundamentally different, harder place than it was even 20 years ago. Class mobility is at an all time low.
