This generation, growing up with terror and oppressed by economic stagnation, is positioned to move beyond creating and living within comfort zones. As we stated in our winter forecast: “For the movers and shakers among them, the distant past holds more promise than today and tomorrow.”
Millennials are advancing their connection to “a whole food, back-to-the-land, voluntary simplicity, buy local, farm-to-table community-centric culture.” But the collective “vibe” that truly lifts this generation, and others with it, is still elusive. Their future lies in the distant past.
The ground is still fertile for leading-edge millennials to look back to old-world values, the lost emphasis on true craftsmanship, artistic creation and morality-based movements to lead the way.
