Perhaps I'm weird, but I would prefer it if today's adolescents had an easier time of it than previous generations. Why should I feel jealous of them? If I want something that wasn't available when I was a kid, I can buy it for myself, now!
I have 3 theories on that.
1. They're jealous like you said. 2. They want to feel superior and more long suffering (ie: martyr complex). 3. They're not used to technology because a lot of it can be difficult to learn (I can sympathize with this to a degree).
Overall, I think one of the top commentors of that Young Turks video said it best.
Perhaps Millennials are the first generation in a long time to understand that life is not work, we only live once, personal health and mental well-being is more important that a paycheck, and our self worth is not determined by the car we drive, but the knowledge we have accrued through our own research and hobbies. We are not lazy, we are simply more sensible. Work is something we have to do to earn a paycheck. True character is something we earn completely separate from work.
