Fight Club Speech – Brad Pitt Speaks For Generation Y

A speech from the 1999 movie “Fight Club” bears many unfortunate similarities to what the young adults of Generation Y are now facing in the 2010s. Rampant unemployment or underemployment, non-stop advertising for things you don’t need, and a generation where “everyone gets a trophy” suddenly realizes they will never be what they trained to do with their lives. This has been made even worse by the fact that unlike 1999, we actually ARE living in an era of war and economic depression.
