Good point on the ageism. I was being a bit snarkier than I usually am. I don’t sincerely believe we millennials are really any better than the rest of the generations. And in a way, that’s the problem. I believe that my father (a boomer) would want his kids’ generation to have made some progress. I want the same for my daughter. So I would hope that her generation is better than mine, as a whole. For whatever reason, this practice of idolizing, and using those idols to label people as “the next so-and-so” jumps out at me as a way of negating the originality and progress we do and could make. I hope that makes sense.
