Our poor, unloved millennials

The millennials are the most stressed generation of all time, but they can take a good selfie. They're not really interested in politics or religion, but they're surgically attached to their smartphones. Baby boomers and Generation X-ers think that millennials are self-obsessed, spoiled hypocrites who think the world owes them a living. Who exactly are these millennials, what do they think, what do they want? And why does everybody hate them?
We're told that millennials like Lena Dunham. This doesn't ring true. We're not even sure that Lena Dunham likes Lena Dunham. And anyway, we already know who most millennials really love. Themselves.
Think about it. The real reason the internet took off has nothing to do with faster processors, apps and better broadband.
