For a long time, the generation wars have focused on the Baby Boomers (b. 1946-1964) and the Millennials (b. 1981-1996), whilst there has been little said publicly about the incoming generation, Generation Z (b. 1997-2012) – for obvious reasons: until recently, they were all shut away in schools, too young to have formed a coherent generational profile or to have made any impact on the world stage.
However, with the eldest Gen Z-ers now in their mid-twenties, a picture has begun to emerge, and – in the words of many Generation Z-ers themselves – it’s a worrying one.
I happen to know many fine and splendid constituents of this cohort, as I spend a lot of time in pubs (working! Honestly, tsk, you people…), and, since moving to the area just over three years ago, have got to know quite well the staff in our local pub, who are virtually all in the 18-25 age-group.
They are the first to describe many of their contemporaries as “snowflakes”, “woke”, and would no doubt agree with the newly coined acronym for this cohort – YIPs. Young Illiberal Progressives.
