Time has published a six page long article about the millennial generation this week. Based on scientific research, Joel Stein describes millennials as ‘lazy, entitled narcissists who still live with their parents’. But not to worry, because according to Stein ‘they’ll save us all’.
The article describes what we’ve been advocating for the past three years: these millennials are addicted to their phones and online networks, they’ve gotten so many participation trophies that they feel entitled to constant praise and they don’t believe in hierachy anymore. But Stein is right when saying not to worry, because these millennials use their internet-addiction to their advantage, they are open-minded and pragmatic idealists, they are creative and innovative and they will save us all.
These creative and visually smart millennials stay true to their reputation and reacted fast. On this Tumblr page you can find a colorful collection of playful and smart photoshopped versions of the Time cover.
