Interesting topic and conversations. I’m from generation X and like many (maybe all?) millennials, my peers and I resented being called “slacker,” “lazy,” “entitled,” etc., so please, get over yourselves. And Gen-X received its share of participation trophies – the difference is many of us (., me) didn’t keep them because they weren’t legitimate. So it’s probably no surprise I disagree with the author when he says millennials have been in a competitive cage match their entire lives. Whatever cage match or fights you perceive – they’re all (okay, not all – but mostly) imagined. Their illusory. You (and “you” is a general “you” and not the author specifically, because I don’t know him, or any of the others posting here – just keep that in mind for the remainder of my comments) – You don’t accept loss because you never learned how to lose and do it graciously – to congratulate your opponent on the field – shake hands and sincerely say “good game” when you’re really pissed that an umpire or referee made a bad call and everyone knows it. You never learned to accept the cards you were dealt and play that hand until you get a better hand (life is a lot like an endless card game and choices we make affect the hand we have after the cards are dealt – choose wisely). You weren’t taught introspection – to really look inward and give yourself an honest evaluation. Not everything you do is awesome or blue-ribbon worthy — some of it is utter crap, and that’s okay because NOBODY is awesome all the time and everybody does crappy stuff – it’s kinda part of the human condition. You weren’t taught humility – to be a gracious winner on those occasions when you DO win. You weren’t taught (or required) to have integrity; excuse-making is second-nature to pretty much everybody – but integrity – that is in short-supply and you should cling to it for dear life.

To give you an idea of how charming Fritz Zwicky was, when he was working at Aerojet, a bunch of customers from the military, including two admirals, showed up for an appointment to check on his progress. Zwicky met them at the gate demanding that they leave because they weren't scientists and were therefore absolutely unqualified to look at the stuff they were, um, buying. Outside of work, his solution to winning arguments was to try and punch people, which was mostly found adorable because he was a little old man who could be pummeled easily.

No , he forcefully told himself. There was no point second-guessing what was done and over with. Reality was what it was. The strong did not shy from facing whatever ugly truth the world threw at them. To do so was a sign of weakness and he was not weak. He would not weaken himself by denying fact and deluding himself with fantasies. If his enemies controlled the nine tails, he would control the other tailed beasts. He would unleash his Akatsuki on the world and they would reap a crop of blood and death as never before. A hundred years from now… No, a thousand years from now, they would whisper in fear about the vengeance he wreaked on his foes for sullying his honor so long ago.
