The failure of the parents to impose rules on their children has led to a generation of infantilised dependent adults for whom the only tolerable limits are their own self-made safe spaces, according to sociologist Frank Furedi.
In his book Why Borders Matter, the emeritus professor from the University of Kent at Canterbury said that the age group sometimes referred to as the snowflake generation, is the result of three to four generations of parents who failed their responsibility to convey past values on to their children.
‘Children develop by reacting against these codes. It is a character-forming and creative process essential to achieving self-sufficiency and intellectual independence.
Growing up with this lack of boundaries has meant that young people are confused and have nothing to measure their own values or other standards against.
As a result, millennial adult-juveniles are unable to listen to the opinions of others so that they can make their own judgments. Taught not to think for themselves, the Snowflake Generation respond negatively to claims of ‘racism’ or ‘fascism’ as did Pavlov’s dog.
The scientist’s dog salivated each time he rang a bell to signal the hound’s food was on its way. The dog continued to salivate when the bell rang even though the food bowl stayed in the cupboard. The unthinking snowflake or zombie apocalypse generation salivate each time they hear them cry, ‘racist’ or ‘fascist’. Asked why they are clueless.
Without moral and societal boundaries borders, snowflakes construct their own boundaries in the form of safe spaces in which they can distance themselves from the opinions of people with whom they disagree. This stokes identity politics said Furedi.
The professor says, ‘The thing about identity (snowflake) politics is that every expression they use is actually a contradiction. They support diversity but identity politics is completely hostile to the diversity of opinions. So if you argue a narrative other than what they themselves hold dear, that is considered racist, insulting, or hate’.
Failure to create standards and rules has also led to two other phenomena: a slowdown in reaching maturity and the separation of parents from adulthood’ when trying to be friends with their children.
The whole development process is compromised. You end up in a situation where the transition from childhood to adolescence takes much longer if maturity happens at all.
The professor, remembers a man wearing a T-shirt with the slogan ‘I’m done growing up; fathers who listen to the same music as their sons, copy their dialogue, watch the same infantile movies, and wear the same juvenile clothing. Mothers and daughters show roles reversed in which the daughter tells the mother what to wear.
‘There is almost this deliberate effort not to be the father or mother of the child, but their best friend, whom children do not need,’ he remarked.
A September 2019 study found that British millennials were the least happy of all age groups, while another August 2019 survey found that nine out of ten British people between the ages of 16 and 29 said they felt they had their lives have no meaning and purpose. Source
