The greatest generation is the WW2 soldiers generation.
People are now calling the current teens and 20 somethings are "the entitled" or "narcissistic" generation.

The depression shaped them in ways we can't imagine today. They did without, they learned to work for what little did have and they learned to depend on themselves and their inner strength. It gave them sense of self, appreciation for life and work ethic- something that has disintegrated with each generation after.
People now a days have no idea what it' really like to be poor and do without. To work your arse off and EARN a living. They have been raised with abundance and it's caused them to feel entitled to everything. What we need is another depression... sad to say, but that might be the only way to reverse the thinking of the next generation.
