 Millennials and the Round Earth Concept

Only two-thirds of Millennials fully believe the Earth is round,’ reports an April 6, 2016 article in SFGATE. Further, notable public figures, rapper, B.o.B. and Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving, have voiced support for The Flat Earth Theory. Recently, an individual in California, attempting to prove the world flat, failed to launch his rocket into space when the steam-powered homemade engine failed to ignite.

 Middle-Aged Women Dominate ‘March by Students”

The March for Our Lives, billed as a march by students affected by mass shootings, turned out to be 90% middle-agers, according to the Daily Wire, March 28, 2018. In addition, 72% were women with 72% having at least a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Millennial Politics and Economic Views

Millennial politics, explains The Atlantic’s Politics & Policy Daily, July 15, 2014, is simply this: ‘Young people support big government, unless it costs any more money. They're for smaller government, unless budget cuts scratch a program they've heard of. They'd like Washington to fix everything, just so long as it doesn't run anything.’ Further, according to the report, forty-two percent of Millennials believe socialism is preferable to capitalism, but only 16 percent of Millennials could precisely define socialism in a survey. So much for the future of capitalism, I guess?
