The Demographic Shift
Twelve Population Tribes
Believe Beyond Doubt
I believe the chances of the characteristics of either the Boomers or Milleniums in the twelve population tribes changing are unlikely at best. The twelve population tribes will not alter as they get older, their values are fixed. This is not all bad, however. Michael Adams writes, "I believe, beyond doubt, that we can live quite happily in a secular world of twelve population tribes. But that is not to say a world without meaning." The Boomers have high regard for family, freedom, individuality, and community but also, unfortunately, lower ethical values with a decrease in such basics as truth and sexual morality.✞
Key phrases of the Boomers are:
- "I did it my way",
- "Our children are our future",
- "Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die."
