“Millennials, like F. Scott Fitzgerald’s rich, are different than you and me. For one thing, at around 80 million strong, they’re as big as or bigger than the baby boom—and far more populous than both Gen X (born between 1965 and 1980) and the Silent Generation (1929-1945). They are filled with what at first glance looks like contradictions: More Democratic in their voting behavior than previous generations, and yet more politically independent than any cohort in history. Worryingly unafraid of the word socialism, and yet full-bore in favor of the free market.”
–Nick Gillespie and Emily Ekins, “Generation Independent”, Reason, October 2014
