Of Millennials And Their Double Standards


Welcome to our times, when decisions are made based of what Millennials want.

These are our times. Yes, the 21st century.

Millennials refer to people born between 1982 and 2003. They are commonly known as generation Y, the microwave generation and what not’s. I bet, this clan of humans make the world literally roll. Some of the things that best identifies a millennial is his or her tech savvy attitude, spontaneous habit, impatient character, pragmatic and vocal when it comes to political activities.

In a nutshell, Millennials are the boom and gloom of every situation. It’s their ambition, maybe. You cannot afford to ignore them. In the face of a cloud of silence, you can always smell their attention. Social media tickle their hearts. They are the quickies all over.

However, I have a bone to chew with my fellow flock.

We (Millennials) are a perfect description of dishonesty. It’s unfortunate that we have covered and insured our life goals under an umbrella of lies, fake it till you make it slogan, pretence and hypocrisy. I agree that there’s a difference between lying and withholding information but what we have mastered is the former. It is a cancer that is eating our living-making us just to exist. How sad!

Just the other day, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) announced that out of 19,611,423 registered voters, 9,930,315 are the youth (18-35 years old) and this tells you how much Millennials are of stake to any Nation. The irony of the situation is that Millennials have always been on the front line complaining of deficiency of good governance, unemployment menace, and political intolerance yet even with their number there is nothing they can do about it.

In fact, when you dig deeper you will be shocked to find out that tribalism is a language well-spoken by Millennials. Their eloquence when it comes to spewing hate speech is superb. Tragic!
