Very good take on the situation from a GenY perspective with a link to the important notion of “Betterness.”
There used to be a ladder to success. It was the college→good job→marriage→house→family→cushy retirement. Sure, not everyone made it, there were a few broken rungs near the bottom but that was the guiding light to the good life and enough people made it that it seemed within reach. A few people questioned this ladder as really being “the good life,” but those were just hippies or crazies, no one worth paying attention to. Now all this has changed; my generation is growing up without a ladder.
