Why are millennials so maligned?


As the latest generation to make their presence known on the world stage, the millennials are copping the inter-generational scrutiny that is a rite of passage for every new generation, but this time the barbs seem harsher and the concern greater. The millennials’ propensity for narcissism, entitlement and delusion is roundly criticised, but there is also genuine concern over their unprecedented levels of anxiety.






Attempts to understand millennials, or Generation Y as they are otherwise known, have been made by social commentators and scientists. But while some of these investigations acknowledge the obvious impact of growing up in a world of increasing trauma, and technology that brings all that trauma into our lives like never before, none of them deal with the underlying issue of what is the SOURCE of all this ever-increasing pain and dysfunction in human life how are we to explain, and, more to the point, solve and bring to an end, THE AGONY OF THE HUMAN CONDITION??


Well, amazingly, it is this crux problem of the human condition that biologist Jeremy Griffith has finally succeeded in explaining and resolving!!

    Sir/Madam, according to my point of view, the new generation which are uncontrollable, are the fruits of past experienced political failure. Political reason, none of the world politician want to be defeated. Even after their departure, they keep their ideology open for those who want to. Usually example are taken from the past. Why? Thus, past ideas, past system, keep repeating. Thus, the new generation are influences automatically. Sometimes, the same person are nominated each times for education matters. These person jealous of new generations facilities, try to mud up things thus, the NG find themselves flying without any colors.
    You correct my saying if ever I am wrong. Thanks.

      Hello Amina. You are right in what you are saying, but there is a deeper question here, which is why is anyone selfish in the first place. Why do politicians care more about not being defeated than doing the right thing? Why are people jealous of new generations rather than nurturing them? We like to think that it is just human nature that we are all variously selfish and some of us can control it better than others. But what Jeremy Griffith has presented in his book, is the fundamental reason why people are selfish, and in doing that, he has resolved it! That is the amazing thing about this work, it gets right to the bottom of everything and fixes it. No one needs to be selfish anymore. That is a huge claim, and you need to read at least chapter 1 of his book to understand how we could be making it. But that is what I encourage you to do. Have a read of chapter 1 of FREEDOM, which you can do for free at this link:
      Best of luck!

    Conditional love communicates “you aren’t good enough” and feelings of shame can be debilitating. Additionally, being told what to do… think, wear, eat-etc., steals a persons ability to become authentic. It kills the human spirit and destroys our hopes in a safe, kind world.

    True, it’s traumatic and healthy coping skills are paramount. Without caring parents self efficacy is near impossible.

    Searching for long lost soul connection to our unconscious consciousness…

    It’s easy to get depressed over the state of us Millennials but thank god we now have some honesty and truth about not only OUR alienated behaviour but ALL of human behaviour: why I’m such a mess deep down; why my crazy neighbour is such a lunatic; why my neurotic Aunty is off the planet; why my 13 year old cousin is becoming more and more closed off to the world…. Every situation is now explained and dignified which provides ENORMOUS relief. As Griffith states, we are all FUNDAMENTALLY GOOD – we are all part of the fabric of our species’ heroic search for knowledge.

      Hey well said there world wanderer there’s no use in getting depressed about the state of millennials’. Denial has had a devastating effect on the human race and now it has reached saturation point. Fear is driven into your mind at every angle whether it is via the media or even music and there is no hope being shown from anywhere! Its all out darkness and distress we are literally living miles underground in Platos cave. Freedom is the only thing that delivers that much awaited hope and understanding of ourselves.
      These ameliorating, dignifying, self-esteem restoring answers presented in Freedom could not have come at a better time as the Sun had indeed become disgusted with waiting. But the wait is now over as we can now begin the psychological rehabilitation of the human race. That’s what we focus on.

    The self harm is terrible. Griffith provides the most honest account I have read of this generation, with many excellent quotes from journalists and therapists such as Janov, who I have always held in high esteem. This is what Griffith includes from Janov: ”
    Arthur Janov wrote that ‘there are more and more cases of ADD among children [in the US], one in five to be exact…​So what is going on?…​The brain [of the ADD child] is busy, busy, dealing with the pain’ from ‘childhood’, ‘where there was no [real, unconditional] love’, only ‘conditional love’ where, for example, ‘parents wanted smart kids’ to fulfil their own insecure ego’s desire for reinforcement; with the result that ‘when there is stimulation from the outside…​it meets with a very active brain which says “Whoa there. Stop the input. I have too much going on inside to listen to what you ask for”.’ Janov concluded, ‘You know, ADD is also called the hyperactivity disorder (ADD HD: Hyperactive Disorder). Of course, the kid is agitated out of his mind, driven by agony inside. We want her to focus on 18th century art and she is drowning in misery’ (4 Apr. 2013; see ).”

    Just from my own observations, this generation is very different to mine. I suppose we all say that, but objectively speaking, there seems to be some real attention deficit that was never there before.

  8. nomad on February 25, 2017 at 8:56 am

    We are bringing our children up in a mad, mad world. And it is clear what a profoundly terrifying effect that is having on them. Thank God Jeremy has got to the bottom of it all.
