56 percent of Gen Z and 55 percent of millennials said they would quit a job if it interfered with their personal lives. 49 percent of Gen Z and 46 percent of millennials said they wouldn’t work for a company that didn’t make diversity a priority.

How are they paying their bills? My working theory is that they are relying on the government and/or their parents. I see many who still live with their parents into their 30’s and 40’s, some whose parents still pay them an allowance of sorts, and still others who collect government handouts.

One coworker of mine is still working at age 76, because his ne’er do well son can’t hold a job for more than a few weeks. When I asked him why he still does it, he replied: “What am I supposed to do, let him be homeless?”

It’s hard to see your son walking barefoot in the snow trying to sell weed on the east side. But at least he’s trying, right?

And this is yet another component of the hopeless degradation of humanity that will contribute to a mass die off. When times get tough (which they already are, but are destined to get much tougher) these soft, useless, self entitled pussies will either get hard real damn quick – and for many that obviously won’t happen – or they will die.

Lacking any frame of reference for reality, nor ability to adapt to a world that has changed very much for the worse at a rapid pace, and having completely unrealistic expectations go unfulfilled, will have them suffering emotional breakdowns and tantrums. When suddenly food is short, medical care unavaiable, and nothing they need – much less want – is being given to them on demand, they will lash out.

Having far too many other serious problems to deal with, the more pragmatic sorts amongst us will see to their disposal; that is if sickness, starvation and the inevitable bands of urban marauders intent on mass destruction for it’s own sake don’t get them first. One thing we won’t do is listen to their bitching.

Over a century of intentionally deleterious policy and social engineering of the youth has brought western civilization to a point where nothing short of a massive culling will leave a functional population that is no longer weighed down by such useless and malinformed garbage. Further, since there is no means of ensuring such a culling will be orderly enough (in the sense of avoiding massive collateral damage to the productive and level-headed who actually do the work that maintains society) there is no assurance that any livable civilization can or will continue to exist.

Of course, humanity has shown that [some portion of] it will scratch out a miserable and depressing existence through much – really most – of its recorded history, so those who escape the direct consequences of violence, famine and squalor will be rewarded with a standard of living resembling that of the dark ages. I’m not certain I’d consider them the lucky ones for having made it to that point. Certain that none of the bullshit artifice of modern America – the ceaseless focus on diversity and inclusivity most especially – will survive the descent into subsistence.

It will, of neccessity, be a return to full on tribalism. In short, everything they believed in and insisted upon as sacred and non-negotiable foundations of their belief system will be wiped out, as the remant will have no time or inclination to consider such folly. Not while they are laboring every day just to eat and avoid catastrophic sickness.

Then too, there are the exogenous threats in the form of other militarily capable powers attacking when we are already down for the count, just to increase the misery exponentially. Given the grudges that already existed, and the new ones being cultivated by the defective, bastardized ruling class as we watch, I consider such vindictiveness a certainty.

> “What am I supposed to do, let him be homeless?”

That was pretty much the excuse of a friend who kept supporting his stoner son. It finally came to an end when the 35-year-old child took something sold to him as “synthetic marijuana”, which left him institutionalized briefly before they took him back in… and finally threw his ass out when he kept going into fits of destructive rage. Somebody’s garage brew dope broke something in his head.

The friend finally wised up, and the son is now basically a ward of the state. It took several arrests before the meaning of “restraining order” finally penetrated.

It was sad, but he had turned feral, and the friend had other children and grandchildren to think of.

I used to work with a bad specimen of this type.
He constantly complained he wasn’t paid enough and never had any money, while at the same time bragging about his travels and experiences across the US and Canada.
He almost always got to work late and left early, did poor quality work, and was outspoken in his opinions, which were clearly formed from a few very liberal sources.
Other than that, he was a nice guy…
(And yes, at least he took the effort to get a job!).

I’m going to go against the grain here and question the story.

Many years ago I was in a job I hated. Hated it. Now, granted, I was smart — I kept my head down and started hunting for a new opportunity, and when I found it, I jumped ship without hesitation.

So it’s not entirely unreasonable to leave a job if it’s making you miserable.

    Big Ruckus D · April 12, 2022 at 2:30 pm

    I won’t dispute that. I’ve done jobs I hated. I enjoy what I do now, and there is no discounting the misery of doing a job one hates. But then there are myriad reasons for hating a job. Some are good, some are not.

    A shitty boss, poor pay, filthy or dangerous work conditions, lazy or catty co-workers who foist off responsibility on you, or seek to undercut you for pay increases and promotions, are all valid reasons to find a job detestable. Vapid, socio-political driven emotional stimuli like a “commitment to diversity” that are apparently valued so much by our younger cohorts are garbage non-reasons. Look at the the current spat within the house of the devil mouse (f.k.a. disney) and how the desire to force the knowledge and corruption of faggotry and perversion (but I repeat myself) on young children is playing out.

    That is what these people are committed to; they aren’t there to do a job. They are there to (mis)use the resources – financial and political, primarily – of the company in order to force their diseased agenda on the public at large. And they aren’t miserable because they hate their job, either. They are miserable because they are defective, diseased, psychologically deficient perverts who want nothing more than to taint all of existence with the stink of their rancid shit-tier ideology.

    In short, fuck these people. We cannot live with them, and they most assuredly will not permit any scenario in which they continue to live with us indefinitely. One side or the other is now poised to be liquidated, as they demand capitulation and will not allow any peaceful co-existence, period. As I’ve said before, when the mass graves are being filled, I want to be the guy in the bulldozer, not the one in the ditch being sprinkled with quicklime.

My sister wasted a thousand dollars a month paying for her daughter’s apartment. My niece was a waitress at Applebee’s. My sister lost her job due to a bad back. Didn’t get approved for disability. Has ended up moving between each of her three daughters for support.

“What am I supposed to do, let him be homeless?”

If he thinks it’s bad for his son now, just wait for another 10 years when he can’t work any more. I get the sense of how his kid (at probably 40 years old) won’t get and keep a job.

If he has other kids, they hate him for blowing his estate on a mooch.

    My older sister has a well paying job and still gets aid from my parents… she and her husband go through money like water.
    She makes more than me but still asks me for money occasionally. The only time I did, 15 years ago, she never paid it back. I haven’t made that mistake since!

The burn it all down better comrades don’t like driving either.
An older sibling is shocked that his spawn has no interest in cars or road trips.
They have been raised up for the get in the pods and eat the bugs society while prattling on about muh diversity and other controller slogans.

We had two sailors here at work that come to mind when reading this story.

Father Time was a slow, plodding not-particularly healthy 80-year old sailor whose physician had a wife who went to church with Father Time and his Mrs.
Mrs. Time was a (relatively) younger woman, now in her 60’s, rebuilt with the aid of plastic surgery, who couldn’t stomach the prospect of a more restrained lifestyle fiscally, and as a result, Father Time had no 401k to speak of, and refused to retire as it might cost him his marriage. He had a son who played AAA for the Astros minor league team, and who is now a starter. Father Time hadn’t seen his son play a game since high school. He died as he lived, leaving only a pack of hot dogs and a half loaf of bread in the galley fridge, the other $300 of his company-paid biweekly food allowance being spent at home.

The other gentleman is a talented tugboat captain in our fleet. Tug captains work 2 weeks on/2 weeks off, but they work 6 hours on/6 off in their rotation, which is exhausting after 2 weeks. Said guy usually works 26 weeks on/ 2 weeks off. He’s a redneck, real country, but not nice country, and apparently the breadwinner for 3 generations of family, as well as cousins and kids that no one could afford otherwise. I mean, dude’s a hero, but the Romans already nailed one guy to a cross for others’ sins, no need for a repeat, damn.
End of the day, though, self-inflicted martyrdom doesn’t do anyone any favors. Rather the opposite. A little homelessness might be exactly what a grown ass man needs to get motivated to work a shit job.

I will say there are a lot of really bad managers that lead some people to this mindset. My current company, I enjoy working with them, respect my managers, and they respect me. My previous company? My supervisor actively sabotaged me, wouldn’t train me for things I needed to do, overrode me when I said product didn’t meet spec, and then blamed me when later on it was sent back for…not meeting spec. I worked four to six ten hour days per week there, and after I refused to start working six twelves every week because I would see my wife & kids I suddenly gained two write-ups in a week and was ‘no longer suitable for the position’.

Actually, yes. It’s called “tough love”.
