They are not more authoritarian. It is social and economic liberalism. In other words it is classical liberalism, the antithesis of authoritarianism. They are just becoming more liberal, in the classical sense. It's hedonism, individualism and every man for himself. None of this surprises me. The young people I encounter on a day to day basis are all ultra-liberal. It is possible to embrace this way of thinking only in an absence of culture. People now days do not need community because they can live in virtual reality with social media, video sharing websites and online entertainment. The natural bonds of kinship and connection to a national community or greater ideal are non-existent. Therefore only the individual remains.
I believe that the average person in most English speaking countries lives as a sort of atomised invidual. They do not have a nation, an ethnicity or a religion. They simply live as individuals. Their main interest is their career development and the accumulation of wealth. Free time is spent watching movies online, playing games or looking for the next date on an online dating website. Friendships are very superfical and are based on fleeting associations through work or specific contexts. It is a most vapid and depressing existence. An existential nightmare for any thinking person.
The social and economic political values outlined in the article are just the expression of this way of life and mentality. The young people do not want socialist policies because they do not want to have to pay for anyone else but themselves. And they are socially liberal because they couldn't care less about what other people do. It's really social darwinism and classical liberalism taken to it's highest conclusion.
We are condemned to live.
Volk and Народ, brotherhood of all races and peoples - for our common future!
