Barbie is modest enough to back off of some of her claims, here, in response to the comments made on her initial posting. But she still claims to be able to compare Gen Y to the generations immediately preceding her own.
Like this is so right on. People in my generation were very much a part of traditional authoritarian culture.
We were so brainwashed to hold our elders in a kind of awe that we had no sense of deserving any kind of decent treatment and were ready to take whatever the bosses chose to dish out.
Then I come to America and see that everything is different. People were free here. They didn’t take that kind of crap. Wait a second, I’m confused. That was 1968! Help me. Was that Gen Y in 1968?
So lemme axe you dis: where do these guys get their ideas of the past? They weren't there so do they get it from their parents, teachers, books, magazines? Because it's pretty obvious that there's a lot they don't know.
