Peter Burfeind's article ''Millennials Are In Election Hell Because Politics Has Become Their God'' published in ''The Federalist'' indicates:
{{Cquote|According to [[Progressivism|progressive ]] faith, the “arc of history” always bends Left. Well, history just spawned [[Donald Trump]], and if European political trends are indicative, this is not an isolated incident. For leftists, this is akin to if Christians woke up to find Jesus’ bones had been discovered. It shattered their faith.
The freak-out is especially acute among millennials. These are the “[[nones]]” and the “spiritual but not religious” bunch we’ve heard about the past decade. Millennials, we were told, didn’t abandon faith per se—can the human spirit truly live without faith?—they simply redirected it away from “organized religion” toward other things, chief among which was politics. I wonder how that’s working out for them.
As ridiculous and ubiquitous as the pathetically referenced “stages of grief” has become to explain how they feel about losing an election (!), the depth of leftist grief does magnify the essential religiosity they place on politics. Some reflection is in order.<ref>[ Millennials Are In Election Hell Because Politics Has Become Their God] by Peter Burfeind, The Federalist</ref>}}

{{Cquote|In the absence of God or religious faith, many millennials are seeking meaning for their lives and an explanation of existence through psychological therapy, a new essay suggests.
