11:06 am Millennials are killing social enterprise… Oh, wait…

Dear reader, you might be familiar with the classification of generations, or, at least, you might vaguely be aware of the existence of a Generation X, called the Baby Boomers, and their children, Generation Y or the Millennials – those born between the 1980s and the 2000s. We’re closely going into Generation Z – the post Millennials. But, since these latter ones are still in schools, and Generation Y is not yet obsolete, we are going to focus in this blog on the Millennials and the intriguing aspect of their ‘killings’.

Millennials have been accused in too many articles of killing something, being art, brunch, the career ladder, restaurant chains, politics, beer, food etc. They have also been accused of being too self centred, too lazy, too privileged with their avocados and Eggs Benedict . Too technology focused, too entitled, too DIFFERENT. And truth to be told, we are different. But the question is: different compared to what?

Most parents and children who have conflicting opinions blame them on something called the generation gap. A difference between generations. Children believe their parents to be narrow minded and obsolete. Parents believe their children to be rebels and disrespectful to authority and experience. Who is right? All generations create their set of norms that they respect, all generations should have the freedom to enact on their adopted norms. These norms are susceptible to change with a new generation. Change is positive for society! But older generations might not want to accept these changes. Conflict is created. Judgement is created. Accusations are created.
