My Facebook Feed Says: Millenials are the New Ben Franklins - But 15 Minutes Later It Claims - America Has Lost Track of Ben Franklin's Values

So who exactly are we supposed to believe?  Clearly, someone has missed the weekly talking points MMM memo on Ben Franklin's relevance to our times for The Huffington Post to so proudly proclaim:

The Stunning Evolution of Millennials: They've Become the Ben Franklin Generation

 At the same time The Atlantic sadly bemoans:

How America Lost Track of Ben

Franklin's Definition of Success

Or - should you take the chance they might each have something to say - and read them both as they they examine much - but not all - the same evidence - and from similar political points of view - and yet manage to come to often quite different opinions.
