It’s a Millennial Generation Life off!

Trillions of dollars have been spent. Thousands of American soldiers have been killed. Yet the United States is right back where it started in Afghanistan 20 years ago, with the Taliban advancing so rapidly that military experts believe they will soon control the entire country again. Some veterans are asking aloud, was the war worth the cost? Clearly not. The war was a mistake from day one. After all, Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan the entire time, not Afghanistan. And the 9/11 plot was hatched in Pakistan and probably funded by Saudi Arabia. We never should have been there.

    It’s not just the Millennials. Many of us Gen Xers who pursued graduate degrees did so for the same reason young people now must pick grad school or the military: there’s nothing out there that pays enough to live on, just enough to continue the holding pattern of working yourself into emotional/physical exhaustion in order to be able to survive to continue working yourself into emotional/physical exhaustion. If you’re going to be poor for your entire life and have to live in crappy rentals into your 30s, 40s, 50s, because trying for a mortgage will always be too risky in our “right-sized” world of continual layoffs at any point in time, why not go for an advanced degree, even if there are no jobs. It’s not like the other path has a reward at its end either.
