Absolutely agree with this state Manda: "Rather than getting caught up in finding fault in each other's generations, how about we band together instead and focus on more important societal issues?"
It all comes down to this; society at-large - every country, every town, every city, every individual working together to find resolutions; it's everyone's responsibility.

I think perhaps what's wrong with society today is a TL:DR culture where everyone depends on memes, headlines and videos with large captions (like this one!) to quickly draw conclusions rather than think critically.

Sit back, stop thinking and a seductive set of assertions and humor may lull you into believing. If you’re not in a critical frame of mind, it makes perfect sense.

Or maybe not. Here are some assertions, extracted separately:
• Millennials “are accused of being entitled, narcissistic, self-interested, unfocused, and lazy.” --> This is passive construction. Who’s accusing them? And really, a whole generation of workers has these qualities? This doesn’t describe most of millennials I've hired or worked alongside.
• Millennials got participation medals — a reward for coming in last. --> Did participation trophies mess up a whole generation? Who knew that humans were so fragile! You know what actually messes up some children? Neglect, bullying and mental or physical abuse. But humans are resilient. And guess what, their sense of self can survive even a shiny participation trophy.
• You have an entire generation growing up with lower self-esteem than previous generations. --> Hmmm... perhaps the difficulty of finding and keeping a good job in this economy perhaps have something to do with this???
• Facebook makes it sound like everyone else is succeeding, which depresses people. --> This is valid. It’s also got nothing to do with generations. It applies to people in their thirties, forties and fifties — who incidentally all use Facebook more than millennials and, ironically, are the ones sharing this video...

Rather than getting caught up in finding fault in each other's generations, how about we band together instead and focus on more important societal issues?
