My friend and I were discussing this the other day, and I wanted to see what you all thought about it.
Him and I both believe that we are currently in a new age of renaissance. This generation (I am primarly talking about the people who are 18-30 years
old) are a new, acsended, and evolved human being.
The reason being that we all grew up in an age where information...of all kinds, comes in every shape and form possibly created. All the knowledge of
man from the beginning to now is so ready and available for any person to have right at their finger tips.
We grew up and were born into the fastest paced age in all the history of man....and we adapted.
I believe...those who choose...that the generation of 18-30 year olds are the smarest people in the history of our planet. We are also the most
tolarable to sex, creed, religion, race, orientation, and etc.
The reason for that is we can collaborate with all kinds of people, from all corners of the Earth...with no language barriers. I can learn about
anyones culture...and also learn that people, from all over are totally different from me...but also a lot like me.
We have information FLYING at us in all directions, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Currently I have TWO monitors, one typing here,
disscussing all kinds of topics, with all kinds of people, with all different opinions and feelings...then I have another monitor with Google open
ready to bring me any piece of information I ask for...Then I have my phone next to my computer ready to recieve texts, emails, calls,
Like the other day, my girlfriend sends me a picture of a bird, on my phone...asking what kind it is. So I look at it, I google what it looks like and
BAM! I have a picture, a wiki page, I can tell you everything from how long its wingspan is to what its diet consists of.
20 years ago...that frankly would only be possible if you studied birds your whole life.
It took me 3 min...what it took someone 20 years ago..4 years to get a degree.
However...I feel that the generation directly above us, mainly 35-55 (not all) are holding us down. We are hitting a glass ceiling. And what sucks
even more...is these people are our bosses, our politicans, and our parents.
These people seem like they are slower...not as intelligent...and above all, more resistant to change.
For instance I have yet to hear anyone 20-30 years old even notice that Obama...is black...or his name is Obama...we (for the most part) dont give a
But the generation above us...they seem to point it out every time I mention anything about the man...
Everything I have said above may not even apply at all...only my personal observations...just wanted to know if you all felt the same?
Does anyone else feel like that?
Mods...Sorry this MIGHT be a thread for "Rants" but I didnt feel I was ranting, just wanted to see if anyone feels the same way...
