I recently came across an article titled "Why Generation Y Yuppies are Unhappy" and It go me thinking. I went digging around and came across another "This is Why the Baby Boomers Are the Worst Generation Ever". I also remembered a somewhat recent XKCD comic on money and the state of the world economy (It's a very detailed well researched chart on spending of governments and people in general using helpful comparisons of size so you can grasp the size of the numbers in play and how they compare.) On another forum I'm on the first article sparked a point of discussion on why Generation Y is unhappy, I countered with "No, we aren't unhappy we are afraid." and provided the long wall of text you see below in support. But I want some more perspectives, Is Generation Y unhappy? afraid? lazy? Do the boomers share blain in either point? Are we a worse generation than the boomers as some claim? Please try to provide references to you claims, most of mine can be obtained from analysis of the XKCD chart so take a look if you're skeptical.
