QUESTION: Josh asks how he can convince his fellow millennials that government isn’t the solution to their problems. Dave says he believes a lot of millennials know this already.

ANSWER: I don’t think you have to convince all millennials of that. Many millennials already understand it’s not the government’s job to take care of everyone and provide everything. But there’s a group of people in every generation that wants someone else to take care of them. They’re called babies, and they just don’t want to grow up.

I would just be kind. I’m not going to have a political discussion with a political neophyte. Just suggest that they control the variables they can control — namely themselves. You can’t control the variable of government.

The government is not going to come to your rescue. It never has.
