OK this will be controversial lol
I respect age, I know and respect lots of old people, I hope to be one myself someday lol.
But let's face it, you people screwed up our world, bad.
And guess what else -- we are the ones who are going to have to deal with the mess!
So who is "we?" Let's for the sake of argument say 20-30-year-olds. I guess you could change this definition at either end to some extent, but
that's vaguely what I'm thinking of.
The solution would be for nobody in major power to be over 30. Maybe you could make a few exeptions, but basically after 30, that's it. You retire or
become a "consultant" or "advisor" maybe. (I'm only talking about positions of real power here -- Washington, Wall Street, Fortune 500 CEOs, etc.
People who own their own little stores or businesses or who have jobs like doctors, teachers, janitors, etc...no change with age).
Everyone heading Wall Street, Washington, the University system, all the power nodes of society -- energy, commerce, international trade, military,
etc. -- would be headed by people in their 20s. Smart people selected rigorously and fairly, but young,
They would bring their creativity, their will to survive, their vibrant life force which starts to ebb when people get older. Fresh ideas, dynamic
attitudes, and youthful idealism....what's not to like?
Plus, the new generation, 20s and below, is much more spiritual than the olders, who are merely religious and cling to outward forms. The 20somethings
are spiritual seekers who can bring fresh and innovative new life to tired old religion, bringing in a breath of fresh air in culture and the arts,
We need change bad, but a 40-year-old tired-looking old man who is corrupt from skeezing around in the Chicgo dirty political system is not
"Change." His daughters....maybe!
Who is with me! Youthquake!
Who is with me??
