Reflection & Thoughts
This documentary shows that youths do face ageism as well. The young generations were thought by others to be “entitled”, “lazy”, “overconfident”, “materialistic”. These sweeping generalisations strengthened the myths and stereotypes on millennials causing the youths to reciprocate this animosity towards the older generations and generalising them as “technologically unsavvy”, “weak” and “irrelevant” further widening the rift between the generations.
