Is This a Bad TIME to be Young? — June 24, 2013

A recent Time cover story calls young adults known as millennials “lazy, entitled narcissists.” Writer Joel Stein points out,
“The incidence of narcissistic personality disorder is nearly three times as high for people in their 20s as for the generation that’s now 65 or older, according to the National Institutes of Health; 58 percent more college students scored higher on a narcissism scale in 2009 than in 1982.”
“” satirized this cover with the one below it. “Millennials are narcissists because we f**ked their entire generation over and they don’t have anything better to do than j**k off and look at Tumblr. Why they’ll starve to death.”
Tell me what you think of twenty-somethings today. I’d especially like to hear from people this age. “Is this a bad time to be young?” [I’ll send a free copy of Illuminati to the 20-something with the best response.]
The comments below from readers of the satire represent a good start to this discussion.
