However, as a Millennial that studies Millennials for a living, Millennial expert Gabrielle Bosché “found Simon’s video disturbing.” Bosché responded to Sinek’s viral rant by stating:
“According to Sinek, the future is bleak for my generation: ‘The best case scenario is that you’ll have an entire population growing up never finding joy…. Just waft through life… fine.’”
“Simon Sinek throws a fair punch that feels more like a low blow. He paints my generation as reactionary and out of control. He patronizes our passion and need for meaning.”
“Sinek sees a shade of us, but he doesn’t truly know us. And I don’t blame him. Simon is a brilliant thinker and skilled writer. But he cannot advocate for a generation that has been talked over, lumped together and mislabeled our entire lives…”
“We don’t need bubble wrap, beanbags or free beer. We aren’t defined by safe spaces. And although we appreciate the perspective, we’ll stick to representing ourselves and smashing the boxes you keep putting us in.”
