Research shows that young men 18-30 are more likely to be living with their parents than with a woman. And that the large number of the unemployed in this demographic are not only living with their parents but spending virtually all of the time they would normally be working playing video games.
But here is the kicker: They LIKE living this way. It isn’t that poor economic prospects are causing them to retreat into a depressing isolation. They consider this a good life. Expending their sexual impulses in internet pornography, rather than marriage or dating that could lead to marriage, and channeling all of their aggression into first person shooters, instead of the military or ambition or earning a living or protecting a family, this generation is happy, content, and living the dream.
So says Samuel D. James, drawing on the research of Erik Hurst and the insights of Russell Moore, excerpted and linked after the jump.
