Why Millennials Love Bernie Sanders

Like with Sanders’ message itself there are many grains of truth in this post, mixed with generalisations and over simplification.

You understand the millennial well, Cenk, but when it comes to understanding why the over 30–35 are less enthused with Sanders message you over simplify and fail at the all important task of remembering the complexity of others. We are not just stupid, we did not just “get used to this”, we can use the internet as well as anyone (We, Gen X not Gen Y, built it), our lived experience cannot be written off, they are part of who we are. As José Ortega y Gasset said “Yo soy yo y mi circunstancia”, I am me and my circumstance.

and so are you.
