Look, everybody! Our betters are Harvard Business School are telling us how the world should work again:
There’s a tectonic shift rocking the social, political, and economic landscape. The last two points above are what express it most concisely. I hate labels, but I’m going to employ a flawed, imperfect one: Generation “M.”
What do the “M”s in Generation M stand for? The first is for a movement. It’s a little bit about age — but mostly about a growing number of people who are acting very differently. They are doing meaningful stuff that matters the most. Those are the second, third, and fourth “M”s.
Gen M is about passion, responsibility, authenticity, and challenging yesterday’s way of everything. Everywhere I look, I see an explosion of Gen M businesses, NGOs, open-source communities, local initiatives, government.
Here’s what it looks like to me: every generation has a challenge, and this, I think, is ours: to foot the bill for yesterday’s profligacy — and to create, instead, an authentically, sustainably shared prosperity.
Yep, you read that right! Generation M! Harvard Business School! Sustainably shared prosperity! Apparently, 3 years at upper-class day camp gives this guy the tremendous perspective that there are things wrong with this world.
Wake up call: You go to Harvard. You go to Business School. You are what is wrong with this world. No one wants to be associated with the criminal excesses you partake in, your fucked-up money first mentality, your undeserved smugness, or your idiotic jingoism that thinly covers your predatory behavior. No matter your age or ‘perspective’, no one with common sense or decency wants to be lectured by an over-privileged MBA-getting dipshit. Do the rest of us a favor and confine yourself to Goldman Sachs and the Wall Street Journal.
PS. You make Thomas Friedman seem intelligent.
