"Millennials are inheriting an America with a crumbling infrastructure, sabotaged social safety net, and a society at war with itself. At first, we thought it was all a test our parents concocted to show millennials what being extremely irresponsible looked like so we could do the opposite and be responsible stewards of the republic. Now millennials know better," stated Alexander Hathaway, president of the nonprofit group Save America from the Most Selfish Generation.

An apt metaphor for the America the Most Selfish Generation is leaving its children.

"The task ahead of millennials is massive and daunting. We may only be able to fix some of what is broken in time for our children to inherit an America with a quasi-modern infrastructure, and renewed progressive policies that protect the poor, disabled, elderly, and other groups from trickle-down economics and a system rigged by wealthy," explained Hathaway.
Representatives of the Most Selfish Generation assured millennials they were not the only ones suffering the consequences of their selfishness by pointing to the financial suffering they have inflicted on their own parents.
