Millennials to redistribute wealth from older generations to the young in new ‘age of disorder,’

Umm... It is going the other way actually. Younger people are paying into the Social Security and Medicare trusts and will NEVER ever see benefits from either of those programs.  Then there is the national debt that has grown into trillions of dollars that millennials and future generations will be saddled with.

Just a cursory look around shows evidence of this happening. Red states like Florida and Texas becoming at least purple. The younger generation wanting programs that help them- forgiveness of student loans, rent control , affordable health care, basic income etc.. 

Programs and policies that used to be sacrosanct like unlimited support for the police and military, programs that gave tax breaks to the elderly, whether they needed them or not, are being pushed aside for things like the Green New Deal.

The world be a changing.

To be clear, millennials did not ask Congress to meddle in the student loan business to begin with.  Not all of the younger generation is looking for a hand out either. You are being a bit unfair.

I have been considered a grumpy old man on more than one occasion. 😁

Most of them just don't want to graduate with the cost of a house in student debt. Things have gotten beyond ridiculous.
