By Kidoakland: Abel Guillen: the Rise of the Millennials:
In my recent and direct experience, millennials are engaged, groundedly idealistic and willing to make careers that will change their nation and world over the long haul. I see this every day. Even among the youngest of this consort, the strains of progressive politics run deep and wide. That counts for something. These young Americans may have grown up with Madison Avenue and Hollywood cliches of political activism, but their own actions are no less idealistic even if they go on under the cover of less flamboyant and more conventional attire. Coordinating with likeminded allies through Facebook may have replaced “levitating the Pentagon”, but it’s a trend-of-the-times that should by no means be underestimated.
