Default Generation Lumping is Bull****

In the end, the core scientific problem is that the pop press, consultants, and even some academics who are committed to generations don’t focus on the whys. They have a vested interest in selling the whats (Generation Me has reportedly sold more than 115,000 copies, and Google “generations consultants” and see how many firms are dedicated to promulgating these distinctions), but without the science behind them, any prescriptions are worthless or even harmful.

Generations and generational differences are intriguing and inherently appealing concepts. As such, the media will keep on reporting on them, academics will publish, pundits will talk, and consultants will sell to whoever is buying. But the science says that, despite their popularity, generations simply aren’t a thing. And until we recognize this, we will continue to waste time and resources while failing to understand how people really are, and are not, different.

I've always looked at this stuff as patently ridiculous. These are all media typings which they use to try to pigeon-hole more complex arguments about social changes into simplifications. Now we're doing it to the poor children, saying they're just Gen-X or Millennials and ergo they are like this and this. Utter bull****. I was always lumped into the "baby boomers" who were supposedly selfish, free-love, pot smoking, hippies, etc etc It was the "baby boomers" who elected Reagan. Twice.

But racial and religious lumping is good, which is why we have "typical white people" and "bitter clingers" and ****.

WTF? That lame effort at deflection is rather revelatory.
