And , I guess, I’m here…

Not surprisingly, generations that experience similar early-life experiences often develop similar collective personas, and follow similar life-trajectories. While writing Generations, Strauss and Howe discovered a pattern in the way different types of generations follow one another in time. They identified a sequence of four generational archetypes—which they call Prophet, Nomad, Hero, and Artist—that have recurred in that order throughout American history. The generations in each archetype have similar age locations in history, and thus share some basic attitudes towards family, risk, culture and values, and civic engagement, among other things. As each archetype ages, its persona undergoes profound and characteristic changes. Yet each also has an underlying identity that endures over the centuries.

It’s all planned out, which archetypes they throw into the meat grinder for the next “turning.”

Usually they recruit young men off the farm in their prime and shove them into the meat grinder before they can reproduce or meaningfully contribute to the economy.

But that’s not part of the fourth turning. Aka the fourth transformation or the fourth reich depending on your language.

For those being targeted for recruitment in Uncle Sam’s meat grinder , your trajectory under Strauss and Howe is:

protected -> heroic -> powerful -> hubristic.

I’m in the same “turning” as the “Lost” generation who all died in world war 1 or from “Spanish flu.”

Millennials are in the same “turning” as the GI generation who they sent to die in WWII.

Zoomies are in the same “turning” as the Silent Generation — who lived through the Great Depression and begat the post-war Baby Boom(er) Generation.

This time around if the recruitment ads and propaganda all appear to be directed at you……. it’s you they want to get rid of. The government and military are not gay friendly at all, they’re culling you and all this “progressive” propaganda is doing a really damn good job of making you reviled by everyone else, they think you’re all degenerates who fuck children now, so basically everyone’s going to say “good.”

Good job, woke progressives.

Trump couldn’t be a “wartime” president because 20 million people would have been in line at the recruitment station. It was supposed to be Hillary- 20 million of YOU would have followed her off of a cliff (and probably STILL would.)

Paging column #1; do you [millenials] understand you’re in the same column as the “GI” generation we sent off to die in [edit: WWII] ?

Paging column #2: do you [zoomers] understand you’re in the same column as the “silent generation” and that your children will be the same archetype as the “boomers” you cry about all day on Reddit?

Your children, grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren are going to fucking hate you and be propagandized into wishing you’d die so that they can have the money and resources you obtained in a post-depression deflationary period.

They will blame you for the next scheduled financial meltdown in the next fourth turn, and if you keep fucking ignoring me and clapping like seals as I’m banned everywhere — I’ll agree with them. This time, it is in your hands and on you, 100 percent.

And so, and so, and so, it goes. End the endless.

How long have we been doing this?

At least for the last 150 years but probably since our inception. They calculate these patterns and manufacture these crises in a never ending cycle.

Would anyone else like to do the generational math with “pandemics?” I’m a little bored of that.

The Lost Generation was the social generational cohort in the Western world that was in early adulthood during World War I

“Lost?” Where’d They go? WWI and muh “spanish flu” ?

The Greatest Generation, also known as the G.I. Generation and the World War II generation, is the Western demographic cohort following the Lost Generation and preceding the Silent Generation

The Silent Generation, also known as the Traditionalist Generation, is the Westerndemographic cohort following the Greatest Generationand preceding the Baby Boomers. The generation is generally defined as people born from 1928 to 1945.[1]By this definition and U.S. Census data, there were 23 million Silents in the United States as of 2019.[2]

In the United States, the Great Depression of the 1930s and World War II in the early-to-mid 1940s caused people to have fewer children and as a result, the generation is comparatively small.[3] It includes most of those who fought during the Korean War

In other words , it’s all going to their usual plan- terrorize everyone into not breeding, send the rest off into anotHER “war” before the next “depression” and so on

The worst part about it is, they censor the “patriots” and anyone with any remotely useful knowledge or skills because the rebuilding will be stuck on us. Well- you. I probably won’t be alive for most of it.

We don’t need makeup artists*, entitled and talentless opiate addicts and people who are not particularly “result’s oriented “for that phase of the strife they’ve deliberately created for themselves and others.

You don’t actually think they’re going to get their hands dirty rebuilding anything, right?

Rome is burning and there are some who think we are spending beyond our means but the State Department has $2,315 for *shuffles deck* English-language makeup tutorials for Nepal.
