Should we blame millennials(including myself) who have inherited the world of multiple financial crises? Why is it that millennials are always blamed for killing basically everything?

Hidden generational strifes are lurking in some places on the Internet. There are many comparisons regarding the behavior of 3 generations: The Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Z. The Baby Boomers and Gen. X often blame millennials for acting entitled, narcissist and even lazy. Ironically, the Baby Boomers are the original members of the 'Me' generation.

Technological advances also contribute to the fact that millennials are killing some industries. For example, younger people tend to buy gadgets compared to pieces of jewelry. The constantly evolving zeitgeist also encourage ageism or the prejudice or discrimination on the basis of a person's age. The video below explains why recent generations are blamed for the mistakes of the past.
