I think the major change I've seen over my lifetime is that being independent and self-sufficient used to be seen as a laudable thing. Kids couldn't wait to get a car so they could go where they like, move out of their parents' house so they could live how they like, etc. Now all that shit is called "adulting" and young people seem to fucking hate it.You're describing the other 20%. Notice how our society is staying young but the workforce is aging? Millenials as a general rule are trash.
