In their defense :

Names are not something they can really be blamed for, as virtually none of them chose their own names.

More than a fair bit of their attitude is explained by the (clearly false) things many of them are told as youths that only become clearly untrue after they are young adults (e.g "Borrowing $100,000 USD in student loans to get a liberal arts degree is a great thing. You'll get a great job after you graduate with that. Why would you keep your accounting major if you don't think it's fun?").

Ultimately, their parents generation (i.e. my generation (although I do not have children) seem to be the ones most at fault. Why aren't parents doing anything to raise their children?
