Most Millennials Will Die When SHTF Because It Will Come Down To Natural Selection
Most Millennials Will Die When SHTF Because It Will Come Down To Natural Selection by Susan Duclos – All News Pipeline
In February 2016 ANP published an article titled “Why Most Millennials Will Not Survive What Is Coming,” which described a public letter written by a Millennial which explained how she decided to move, “put a bunch of debt on a shiny new credit card,” to afford said move, obtained a job which brought in $1,466.48 a month, rented an apartment that cost $1245 a month, then proceeded to publicly berate her employer because she could not afford the cost of living because of the choices she had made….. and was surprised when he fired her after publicly castigating him.
That was the long story short version, you can click over to read the entire thing, because this is a sequel: Why Millennials will die when SHTF (Stuff hits the fan!) as psychologists have reviewed of over 170 studies into Millennials and their dangerous sense of entitlement, to find the situation is far worse that anyone could have imagined, and their explanations give a whole new understanding of what we are seeing today in the “social justice warrior” circles.
THE REAL WORLD THREATENS MILLENNIALS ‘WORLD VIEW OF SELF-SUPERIORITY’
Millennials are described as those born between 1980s and 1990s for research purposes, but as we detail these new findings it is important to note that recent studies have found that the average age a Millennial these days consider themselves an “adult” is 30, meaning half are older and half are younger, with some reaching 40 years old and still not self-describing as an adult, which to them means, “someone who has moved out of their parents’ home, has a job, and pays their own bills.”
The recent study finds that the generation of Millennials have an increased sense of entitlement than the generations that came before them, showing a 25 percent increase than people aged 40 to 60 and 50 per cent higher than those over that bracket.
In 2013, Psychology Today highlighted specific traits they called “entitlement tendencies,” which included but are not limited to: “expect the same rules that apply to others shouldn’t apply to you; feel massively put upon when other people ask you for small favors but expect that when you ask people for favors it’s no big effort; disregard rules; freeloads, and; inconvenience others without thinking.
So this new study finds that those with the entitlement narcissism tendencies follow a three part vicious cycle of behavior: 1) Entitlement creates feelings of disappointment. 2) Disappointment leads to anger and other strong negative emotions. 3) The negative emotions require the person to reassure themselves they are special, which leads right back to number 1.
Dr Joshua Grubbs, who conducted the research, which was published in the Psychological Bulletin explains:
At extreme levels, entitlement is a toxic narcissistic trait, repeatedly exposing people to the risk of feeling frustrated, unhappy and disappointed with life.
Often times, life, health, ageing and the social world don’t treat us as well as we’d like.
Confronting these limitations is especially threatening to an entitled person because it violates their worldview of self-superiority.

Members have long complained they have been unfairly characterised as lazy but the new research appears to prove that the stereotype is actually true.
Professor Paul Harvey, of the University of Hampshire, carried out a series of studies measuring psychological entitlement and narcissism on a group of Gen -Yers and found they scored 25 per cent higher than respondents ages 40 to 60 and 50 per cent higher than those over 61.
In addition, Gen-Yers were twice as likely to rank in the top 20 per cent in their level of entitlement — the “highly entitled range” — as someone between 40 and 60, and four times more likely than a pensioner.
