How the Millennial Generation is Shaping the World
David Burstein, writer, filmmaker, and passionate believer in the millennial generation, is on the The Leonard Lopate Show to discusses how the millennial generation is shaping politics, business, media, and activism. Although memebers of this generation have been called entitled, narcissistic, dumb and even accused of being the worst employees in history, in his book Fast Future, Burstein argues that the millennial generation’s unique blend of civic idealism and savvy pragmatism will actually help them come together for a better future.
Are we confusing awareness with activism? Is social media actually making us less coneccted and involved with our communities and with the world as a whole? Should everyone in the world be allowed to vote for the U.S. president?
