Millennial Power

I Love Millennials

I Love Millennials

Not sure of the exact dates – so from my point of view, Millennials are those that are born between 1978 and 2000. I quickly add, “They are my favourite people.” I love them all and fully believe in them. They come into this world at a period of great change. Change that is nearly impossible to fathom let alone keep up with.

Sadly, I've heard many from my generation say many negative things about Millennials, that I will now blow apart.

1- I'm told Millennials are lazy.

Millennials are more than willing to work, but they came into this world with knowledge that places them ahead of the world as it stands. Millennials are in a way, “ahead of their time.” They are wiser from birth than most of my generation are. They SEE the corruption and total control of the monetary system by just a few rich jerks.

Many Millennials, after spending time and money on University training, end up in jobs where the wages are ridiculously lower than basic needs. Jobs that are not even close to what they trained for. Rents are sky high, car payments may be reasonable, but the car prices are crazy plus insurance rates are also sky high. With little spending money because of low wages, the incentive to perform is simply hard to find.

Millennials “SEE” those with big money stepping on small business's, and many of the people in high paying positions, actually do very little actual work. They see the rich are relying on income earned from their money, while spending very little of their own time actually working.

It's a Master Slave situation - and Millennials are NOT slaves.

I ask – if you were a Millennial, what incentive is there for you to hustle?

2- I'm told Millennials only want to play video games and text messages all day.

Much of the reply to this point falls back to the same answer on my first point, but I will add one major addition. If you have huge student debt, (or even without student debt) would you be able find fun things to do that don't cost money? After all, with today's pay schedules and the high cost of living, what little money left over does not go far. Video games can provide that entertainment at relatively low cost. Plus it is an escape from the asinine systems of Government and the Outdated Unfair Monetary System.

Millennials are quite social people. They LOVE being in touch with those they care about. Social media plus, text messaging, give them the outlet they need to touch hearts with their friends. It's all beautiful really. Millennials have less hang ups re: racism and sexual preferences and thus are much less judgemental. They don't want to be confined to a box created by narrow minded people and their in the box values. Millennials are less hung up on what is considered “Politically Correct” and they are generally far less judgemental.

They see the truth - “The whole Politically Correct Movement is Absurd, and they want no part of it”

3- I'm told Millennials are Materialistic

There are two side to this coin and they are both valid and both correct. Millennials love nice things, but lets face it, they were raised in boomer families and their parents went through a few good years, so could afford more luxury type things. They do have some expectations, but are more happy to wear second hand cloths than many of their parents and buying their designer jeans at a second hand store is no big deal.

All that said, an increasing number of Millennials are plugged into the "minimalist life style." They have, through necessity, learned how to get by with less, and many have turned to travel. It blows me away watching so many with low paying jobs, scrimp and save and travel with next to no spending money to go with. Millennials truly are very cool people. And I admire, respect and adore them for it. Adventure awaits all. Millennials see the world as a beautiful place and they intend on seeing more of it.

Time For A New System

Lets look deeper..........

Truth is - “There is nothing wrong with Millennials at all.”


What is screwed up is the worlds monetary system and the love of power that the current system fosters. When 3500-5000 families are controlling the worlds money, what we have is Communism through wealth control.

Add Political Correctness and Government Control over too much of our lives, feeling free is more difficult than in the past. Freedom of the individual, is being controlled by narrow minded dictatorship type rules, regulations, permits and all sorts of ridiculousness, that defies logic.

Ayn Rand said "When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion–when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing–when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors–when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you–when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice–you may know that your society is doomed."

Its The System That Is Screwed Up, and the Millennials know it.

How Much Is A Trillion Dollars?

Currency

Currency Vs Capitalism

Currency is nothing more than a tool used to barter trade between people, for goods or services rendered. Capitalism has little to do with transactions of money for services or products rendered .... Capitalism is when money becomes power.
That is the difference between Currency and Capitalism.

When capital becomes a tool to hold some down and deprive them, as Masters do to Slaves or broken contracts (theft), while at the same time, others through favors or unearned contracts, or bloodlines are lifted up, it is a power game. When money buys positions... that's a power game. Huge difference.

That's how Capitalism has become Communism through wealth control.

Here is a another valuable picture to consider.

1 million dollars in $100 bills - the stack is 3 feet high
1 Billion dollars in $100 bills - the stack is 3000 feet high - over twice as tall as the CN tower in Toronto
1 Trillion dollars - the stack is 568.2 Miles High..... Rothschild Dynasty is estimated to be worth 70 Trillion - their pile is 23% the average distance between the earth and the moon.

Where the Queen of England and the Vatican fit into the global picture - I'm not sure.... but collectively those three groups/entities manipulate what ever they want. But the sheeple believe themselves to be free, No my friend - capitalism has NOTHING to do with the use of currency in trade of goods and services.... Capitalism is control through wealth.

Making It Even A More Beautiful World

Where Do We Go From Here?

I believe in humanity. We are powerful creators with the capacity to create beautiful things. I believe we all want the same things. To be healthy, happy and enjoy this journey called life. I believe the world is a beautiful place and humanity can create an even more beautiful place by changing the way we look at Economics and Government. Thrivalism explores possibilities of change in those areas. Today is old news, manifested realities of past thinking and actions. What tomorrow brings is today's ideologies.

There is a Great Awakening Happening on the whole world today. The corruption and mess we see everywhere is evidence that things are surfacing to be transmuted and be expelled from earth for ever.
The illusion that those in power to this date have believed in, is, “there has to be Masters and Slaves.” Most those in power believe we need slave workers to control, in order to get a job done.

Thankfully, as the awakening continues, people will realize that abundance really is available for all. Money is not a limited resource, they print it out of thin air and dole it out to those in power under the promoted illusion that the trickle down effect will cover everyone. Thrivalism Economics, an article you may be interested in reading, awakens that illusion and presents a basis for positive action. Simplicity is possible.

Cooperation is the new trend. Although competition is good, what is even better is a world that endorses and promotes cooperation. Thrivalism is the wave of the future, and Millennials are stepping into "create mode" with open minds.
Change Is Happening Now.

I Love My Millennial Friends

Millennials are AWESOME.

As Millennials embrace their own power, they will realize the world can be, even more beautiful than it has ever been imagined. I encourage all Millennials who read this, take the time to study the links..... the future is yours to create. Go forward with knowledge of the changes possible.

Millennial Power is not created through competition.
Millennial Power is created through cooperation, and respect for the individual.

Millennials are beautiful people, and I'm happy to have so many of them as my personal friends.

Millennial Power..... It's In Your Hands.

Say YES to "Millennial Power."

Interesting hub, Neil, but I can only agree with about 1/2 of it. When you go off on capitalism, you lose me, mainly because you have bought into the myth that capitalism is living thing.

All capitalism is is an arrangement where one willing entity (human or organization) buys, with some common medium of exchange, some item or service they value from a willing seller who hopes to cover their cost of production ... plus a little bit to pay back for the risk assumed.

Now, you won't find that particular definition in any text book, but it is my synthesis of what is actually going on. Capitalism is no more or less than this; it is just a process.

Having said that, when you add in human nature, left to its own devices, capitalism is a self-destructive mechanisms known to man and women. Without controls, it winds up just as you have described.

But, WITH controls, it is the best thing since sliced bread in terms of providing a way for people to live a good life and pursue the American Dream.

My Esoteric - I Used to think exactly like you re: capitalism. Times are changing drastically - machines replace people on many jobs and thus wealth distribution is required today. Today is even unlike the situation just 15 years ago. We are necessarily moving towards a cooperative economy vs a competitive one. Competition will always be alive and well, as it should be because it motivates improvements. But A shift in mankind's general thinking is taking place. Did you read the link "Thivalism?" It goes deeper into the shift.

I think, Niel, that wealth AND income distribution (two different things) has always been required. If not because of the excesses of feudalism in the 1700s, excesses of the unregulated industrial revolution in the 1800s and early 1900s or the transitions we are seeing today. Prior to WW I, things were much worse than they are today. Prior to the Great Depression and WW II, things hadn't changed much in Europe and improved only a little in America.

WW I, the Great Depression, then WW II was the great leveler. I won't bore you with numbers but measures of inequality were very high in both income and wealth prior to those three events and then historically low after. Although inequality marginally increased through the 50s - 70s, it seemed nobody was really suffering disproportionately when compared to others; the rate of growth in income was very roughly the same for the lowest income group as it was for the highest.

As I am sure you know, that changed in the 1980s with the radical change in tax structure and, save for Bush I/Clinton and Obama, it got steadily worse at an increasing rate.

There is nothing wrong with technology replacing grunt labor ... if you plan for it. Our history, and everybody else's, is to fight change rather than recognize it is going to happen come hell or high water. It can't be stopped, but it can be channeled to the advantage of everybody if governments just try.

It is against human nature to live with a "cooperative" economy, at least as you define it in your hub. With some exceptions people will cooperate so long as they perceive either 1) they get something out of it of greater worth than not cooperating or 2) they perceive no disadvantage from cooperating. Pure socialism/communism fails on that point. To theoretically work, people must be altruistic and cooperative; and people, by-and-large are not.

At least that is the way I see the world.

I agree with your view. As stated competition is good..... have you read the story of Dan Price and his company Gravity Payments.

Do a google search for his story.......... he did the unthinkable and raised the minimum wage of his employees to $70,000 a year and took a personal drop in pay from over 1 million to do it. I believe in Free Enterprise - but I do NOT believe in Capitalism. Nor do I believe in Socialism.

Yes, I know the Dan Price story and while I question the wisdom of such an extreme display of egalitarianism, I applaud his sentiments.

You might be interested in this update I found. Even though I still question his wisdom, I am less certain. In any case, it seems his brother took exception to his move and sued; it seems one of the reasons he did is one fallout from raising everybody's salaries was a halting of raising/paying of dividends. His brother lost - http://www.geekwire.com/2016/dan-price-70k-ceo-pre...

What he did, btw, fits well within the capitalist framework; as the judge found, "it was a reasonable business decision". Under true socialism, he wouldn't have been able to make such a decision because the group controlling industry (normally the gov't) wouldn't give him the liberty to do so; capitalism is simply silent on the subject.

Question, economic systems fall within a few definable categories. You have feudalistic, socialistic (all forms of command driven economies), and capitalistic (under which your concept should fall). What others are there?

My Esoteric - Thrivalism falls under no known economic system. Although it supports Free Enterprise it places much more value on the development of the individual. Capitalism and Socialism both fall short on very simple changes that Thrivalism covers.

Neil,

This is a great hub!

I can surely relate. My children, nephews, and nieces are all millennials. One characteristic of millennials is that they tend to stay with parents. The main reasons are (1) economy and (2) more companies allow them to work from home.

I also believe they are more street smart than we were.

MIllennials are thinkers and social. They hold fresh new ideas for making a difference in the world. Cooperation, we need more of this for sure! I pray our world will see much good coming from this generation and beyond.

Another thing about Millennials is that their belief in liberalism means they are less prone to carry on the prejudice of their parents.
