    Generations

    I've not seen this theme discussed yet.

    Also a poll for statistics reasons and some questions:

    Which generation are you? What are the characteristics of your generation? (General, and what you remember personally)

    Which generations are your parents from? What about your partner or child if you have one?

    Do you notice certain differences between generations, in behavior, political preferences, etc.?

    Is there an inter-generational clash?

    Do you find that you get along better with your own generation or with others, older or younger?

    I was wondering recently how the post-millenial generation seems to have less interest in politics and cultural events than other generations. Maybe it's just an impression, but when I joined Skadi it seemed t be filled with people in their early 20s, some will remember the ageist talks , now it seems there are more often people in their late 20s or over 30s. So where are the post-millenials?

    The modern generations defined according to Wikipedia:

    G.I. Generation (also known as the Greatest Generation and the WWII Generation) is the demographic cohort following the Lost Generation. There are no precise dates for when this cohort starts or ends; demographers and researchers typically use the early 1900s as starting birth years and ending birth years ranging from the mid-to-late 1920s.

    The Silent Generation is the demographic cohort following the G.I. Generation. There are no precise dates for when this generation starts or ends; demographers and researchers typically use starting dates ranging from the mid-to-late 1920s and ending dates ranging from the early-to-mid-1940s.

    Baby boomers are the demographic group born during the post–World War II baby boom, approximately between the years 1946 and 1964. This includes people who are between 53 and 71 years old in 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. However, according to the Strauss–Howe generational theory, baby boomers are defined as people born between 1943 and 1960, which would include people who are between 57 and 74 years old in 2017.

    Generation X, or Gen X, is the demographic cohort following the baby boomers. There are no precise dates for when this cohort starts or ends; demographers and researchers typically use starting birth years ranging from the early-to-mid 1960s and ending birth years ranging from the late 1970s to early 1980s.

    Millennials (also known as Generation Y) are the demographic cohort following Generation X. There are no precise dates for when this cohort starts or ends; demographers and researchers typically use the early 1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years.

    Generation Z (also known as Post-Millennials, the iGeneration, Plurals or the Homeland Generation) is the demographic cohort after the Millennials. There are no precise dates for when the Gen Z cohort starts or ends; demographers and researchers typically use starting birth years that range from the mid-1990s to early 2000s, and as of yet there is little consensus about ending birth years.

    I'm not sure. I was born in 1980, doesn that make me a Generation X or a Millennial?

So where are the post-millenials?
    I don't know if this trend is specific to Skadi, as I don't visit any other racialist, nationalist or preservationist forums, but it might be that since the site was down for 4 years, it has yet to attract many new-comers, making older members who've rediscovered Skadi since it's resuscitation the main demographic.

    Also, since the flourishing of the Alt-Right movement, which to a large degree is comprised of teens and young adults, I believe its proponents have found other outlets and spheres of congregation, like 4chan, Reddit, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, etc. Their internet presence is more wide-spread and focused more outward, than what is the case for sites like Skadi, which is much more of a closed sphere, not projecting it's voice much outside of its boundaries.

    I think this is mostly a good thing, as it serves to extend the influence of our thoughts and knowledge into the common discourse.

    Contrary to the steady inclination to more liberal views with each passing generation the last century, Generation Z seems to be turning-point in this tide;

    "One in seven - 14% - of the 14 and 15-year-olds took a 'quite conservative' approach, while only two per cent of Millennials and one per cent of Generation X.

    The Silent Generation had a 'quite conservative' rating of 34 per cent."

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ative-WW2.html

    We see the same trend among children of 2nd and 3rd generation immigrants in the West, where especially muslim teens have much more conservative views than their parents and grandparents.

    Generations according to the Strauss–Howe generational theory:

    1. G.I. Generation (1901–1924)
    2. Silent Generation (1925–1942)
    3. Baby Boom Generation (1943–1960)
    4. Generation X (1961–1981)
    5. Millennial Generation(1982–2004)
    6. Homeland Generation (2005–present)


    According to this classification I'm a late Generation X-er.

    I loathe this entire concept and refuse to identify myself with any of these so-called "generations." I think this is simply another ploy by the enemy to divide us and define us in their own terms. I would bet anything they plotted this out decades ago as stages in their destruction of our people and culture. The "boomers" were the "sixties" generation, who they brainwashed to believe that being "counter-culture" was cool. "millennials" are their targeted generation to be outright anti-white, since beginning in the late 80s and early 90s, the music industry, led by (((Sumner Redstone))) and (((Edgar Bronfman))) only promoted white artists if they were the most pussified whiners like Beck and Radiohead, and only promoted black artists if they were hardcore "gangstas." This gave impressionable teenage white girls the idea that white men were weak and poor choices for mates, while black men were strong and masculine. Trust me, this was 100% intentional social engineering.

    Yep, my generation was dubbed the "MTV Generation". Can't say I identify as any particular generation though, and I ain't ageist against young folks.

    Have some faith in the youth, they're the future.

    I'm a millennial but I don't identify with a generation either. My partner is an X-er and I get along with him more than I do with other millennials.

    Overall the traits of generations are more along historical and technological lines. For example:

    Well, even if that is the case, it doesn’t change the fact, that these generational differences exist and they won’t disappear merely because we say so and don’t want to be divided.

    I’m a Millenial and especially because I don’t fit in with 95% of the people my age, at all, I see it as surest proof, that a certain mindset exists within my generation. Exceptions prove the rule, after all.
    The only thing I don’t agree with in the concept, is the time span, as I wouldn’t put the beginning of the millenials back much further than the very late 80s.

    What are the characteristics of your generation?
    My generation is:
    • Absolutely spoiled, having known no hardship themselves and only having “first world problems”.

    • Outwardly intelligent, of the university educated, only applying masticated knowledge, kind, but entirely lacking common sense, historic knowledge and life experience.

    • Proclaimed rational/logic/atheist except when it comes to refugees, animals or environment.

    • Despite their emotions expressed for the latter cases, they usually entirely disregard their own families and especially parents, especially if they don’t agree with them.

    • They are also even more shallow and hypocritical in so far, as they are mindless consumers buying any new useless stuff brought forth by the very international mega-companies that exploit the third world and are, through that, primarily responsible for the refugee crisis.

    • They pursue careers preferably in the latter, the higher up the ladder/more money, the better, just to then come home, rant about the unjust world or engage themselves in NGO’s for free to “save” the third world.

    • They are all purportedly searching for "love" but are entirely confused and lack the corresponding morals. It’s especially obvious from the mainstream music and its “love” songs(almost every single one concerns itself with that) blasting through the "clubs" filled with people looking for a one-night-stand.


    Do you notice certain differences between generations, in behavior, political preferences, etc.?
    Preceding generations might have, on average, lacked the (pseudo-)“education”/”intelligence” associated with Millenials but they were better in every other aforementioned regard.
    Though the decay was, of course, gradual and didn’t start entirely abruptly with Millenials.

    Is there an inter-generational clash?
    Absolutely, though mostly indirectly. But an intra-generational clash was probably a constant in histor, but nowadays the differences between the generations seem far greater.

    Do you find that you get along better with your own generation or with others, older or younger?
    I definitely get along much better with older generations, though there’s of course still a huge unbridgeable divide as no one can escape the Zeitgeist of his generation entirely. So I don’t fit in very well in any generation but actually least with my “own”.

    The younger generation I can’t really judge, as I rarely have contact with them. From what I’ve seen, though, I’m not especially encouraged.
