What will the next generation be like on ATS

What will the next generation be like on ATS
It seems to me that we as a species have reached the pinnacle and are now de-evolving , the changes I've seen here over the last few years would suggest that internet forums are not immune to that de-evolution , I shudder to think what the next generation will be like but I suspect it will be even more like Facebook and Twitter , short meaningless posts in reply to short meaningless threads.
I hope to be proved wrong.
What will the 'next' generation on ATS be like?
What will the next next generation be raised around? What will the next generation on ATS be like? I'm thinking positively towards:
- more alternative media sources (and the public funding them as preferred, over MSM)
- even more convincing footage of extraterrestrial encounters, more real-time video evidence of false flags
- more whistleblowers, from gmo & nsa agendas to false flag plots busted right before they happen
I'm thinking positively towards
I think that each new generation is a reaction to the one before it, so I predict based on the opposite of your predictions.
Less alternative media sources, much more mainstream
Video footage of false flags and aliens might be more prevalent, but a lot less popular, maybe unpopular
Whistleblowers are condemned as being anti-productive Narcissists
I don't know what to think about your adversity predictions.
I like your thread!
It may be that the next generation of ATS users will continue the trend of brainless twits who think they have it all figured out and want to stand up and beat their chests.
I have children in the "current" generation (25 and 22) who have the drive to be supporting themselves and not mooch off of me (thankfully, although I would totally support them if they were truly trying)...but they are of the "facebook generation" of overly self obsessed, egocentric lives (i.e. most pictures are "selfies", no grasp of differing opinions, etc). They'll survive perhaps, but they will also have to figure out how to revive the American economy that will fail after years of both neocon wars and invasions and neolib handouts trying to get this generation chained to government from birth to death.
I also have a child of the next generation who is now 12. She is growing up in a world where you are taught that the world owes you something. That you deserve everything you want right now without having to earn it through life as my generation did and the generations before me did. You deserve the same pay as someone who has worked there for over 20 years earns - because it's "not fair". And it's not really this generation nor the next generations' fault. This is what is being force fed to them in order for - I really don't know, but I'm sure it involves being controlled by the super elite (by whatever name you want to call them), because besides being taught how special they are, thay are also slowly being conditioned to bow to authority and obey without question. I hope they successfully rise up against this control, because the future really is looking bleak - and I really don't want to be an old man in that kind of future.
Now, I could agree with some of that, but I disagree with most of it.
It's got a lot to do with how someone is raised too. I'm over 40, yet I use facebook.
I also think that someone who does a hard job, good, deserves the same pay as someone who's doing the same job, bad, but has been there 20 years. I don't accept someone sitting down saying "I've done this 20 years, you don't deserve the same as me." - if someone can do the same job, they get the same pay.
Elite? It's got more to do with how someone is raised. If your parents are slackers, then you're likely to be a slacker. A lot will raise themselves up, but not all. So the mentality of being owed something can come from who you are raised by, not some elite who wants your soul???
I suppose I can agree with this.
Obey without question.. that's been something going on for easily 20 years as far as I can remember, before that I didn't even care. I certainly did not conform to societal rules, but I dont know that I would have, if I had cared.
We are not at a pinnacle. We are just right now. Same as the past, and same as will be in the future. Every generation will say "Well, this is it, look at it.. all down hill from here."
It's why US kids end up saying YOU KIDS..
Again, I can't help you see that there are things to be aware of...but go ahead and believe that everything is sunshine and lollipops.
the elites... god help the next generation when they're filled with paranoia before they get to even see for themselves.
