I've been bouncing through this thread amazed at the opinions so many youth have expressed. Are you kids really that far out of it?
In many cases I wonder at an apparent inability to grasp the full depth of the situation. It's not just that you're "screwed," it's that you're
"screwed, blued, and tattooed." And that's just the lucky ones.
The oldsters have a firm grip on a society geared to meet their needs as they age and they're not going to let go until they get everything that's
coming to them. Which will be everythings there is and it's "damn the torpedos, full speed ahead" with the politicans and the police, and even the
parents, dedicated to maintaining that status quo, and their survival.
Pimping your children's future won't seem so funny in the very near future when the debts come due and bring sky-hi inflation along with them,
especially in a depressed world economy. There won't be any good jobs, if there are any jobs at all, and this will probably last for generations.
Good luck trying to find your first job in your 30's or 40's.
And also, many make the mistake of limiting the misery to those now in their teens or early 20's... better think again. Observers have noted the
dumbing down of America and anybody that got a decent education when theu could be had is astonished at the poor quality of the youngsters... but the
problem begins with people now in their late 30's so better fit into a long line.
America's success since WWII happened on the backs of those who have come before us and now they're moving out of the workplace without leaving
trained workers to replace a lifetime of skills for jobs that are long gone overseas anyway The opinion of every oldster is that the kids aren't
worth a damn" and have no ability to rebuild out of the Great Recession.
Clearly too many youngsters lack both education and skills but their piss-poor attitude is overpowering and obvious to the retiring generations
scrambling to finish out their lives in comfort. So the kids better figure that the only help coming advice coming from the oldsters that had to
"work for it" will be to pay your taxes and follow the rules.
Worse yet, America is clearly in decline and slated for all the problems a floundering ex-superpower will experience, but one thing for sure, the good
times are over and will never be seen again. And with 200 million people unemployed in the Western World how far away is WWIII? And isn't it
interesting to see 3 generations of socially engineered youth literally prepared for nothing more than that.
When you really think about it, what else have the unwashed uneducated youth actually been prepared for except to be fodder in the future wars for a
society happy to cheer from the rear? But at least the youth will finally have a job and that'll be better than living at home with mom, no car, no
insurance, no job, no wife and no future except to watch TV, smoke dope and learn Chinese.
Yeah, screwed, blued, and tattooed... if you're lucky.
In the face of reality all this talk of fighting and revolution is nothing but hot air from the weaklings society has produced, the die is cast for
you as is your Fate, and there's no escaping it. Resistence is futile. Bend over and watch Karma at work.
