The detached youth
"You're all a lost generation", Hemingway once wrote on the epigraph of The Sun Also Rises, based on a sentence heard by Gertrude Stein. Almost a hundred years later, we might be witnessing the rising of a new lost generation, as some specialists have been classifying millennials.
As wrote by The Atlantic, this generation is "saddled with debt, unable to accumulate wealth, and stuck in low-benefit, dead-end jobs, they never gained the financial security that their parents, grandparents, or even older siblings enjoyed. They are now entering their peak earning years in the midst of an economic cataclysm more severe than the Great Recession, near guaranteeing that they will be the first generation in modern American history to end up poorer than their parents". It also suffers from a loss of identity and tradition, and does not seem to find any solution to that but to spend effort and time with superficial matters.
