A thoughtful critique of generational thinking.
Also, from my perspective, most views of younger generations seem to be projections of the author generation. They typically bear no particular truth when compared to actual individuals being described. Well, no more truth than the few outliers that are often used to prove a generality that does not reflect accurately upon the larger population being described.
I do find it interesting that the critiques of generational thinking have been X'ers. I have been offended over and over again by such typologies written by boomers and those from the "Greatest Generation" before them. I personally find it presumptive that any generation should be labeled as greater than any other. As a wise being once said, "wars not make one great".
