Millennials have been stereotyped as lazy entitled narcissistic and immature We've gotten so used to sloppy generational analysis filled with dumb cl. enjoyed this book but I d have a hard time recommending it to anyone I would describe it as a series of essays about how capitalism overworks you and makes you crazy and how millennials born into our dysfunctional capitalism in decline are overworked and made crazy Harris doesn t seem to be an expert in anything other than the on the ground experience of Occupy If you want to actually dig into the dysfunctions of public schools or independent contractor work or loan debt or the carceral state then he mentions books he s read about each So I mean maybe as a sort of bibliographyIt s a bit too much preaching to the choir for me I dunno in 2003 Immortal Techniue wrote the time has come to realize your net worth in the market and stop bein a fuckin commodity and if you didn t understand what I just said then you already waitin

then even if you are within the weird triangle of 1 uninformed and 2 liberal to centrist Republican and 3 willing to read Marxist analysis of current events go read Brief History of Neoliberalism and some Current Affairs or Jacobin if you want to get mad There just isn t much meat hereThe one useful point Harris does make is about the labor value of schoolwork which I don t see other people talk about in uite the same way We often discount the amount and value of schoolwork which children do because it s unpaid but it accretes utility Kids who finish high school now have done work over the course of the four years than say 30 years ago because of factors like intensification of coursework and technology allowing for efficient study Because they ve done work on themselves during this time they can produce value for their employers The implicit contract that you educate yourself to get paid better has broken down over the years because everyone is getting better educated and we re encouraged to compete against eachother and also because labor protections have been eroded This is not a new idea but the emerging patterns of workers paying in labor and money to educate themselves and capitalists reaping the benefits are explored in a worthwhile wayThe book just doesn t go anywhere There s no argument running throughout or call to action at the end Things are bad and getting
