Your theory will not work, though I get your point on letting old people stay to long in power will mess things up just for the fact that it will
stagnate things and any new or radical idea will not be left to flourish because they being old get so reliant on the same old same old, plus all
the controlling they would be prone to do, and worse all the boring things they will do and say, which is not that bad as long as it's short and to
But anyways it's not a age problem or at least a human age problem, because the same can be said of any age group young, old, middle age, I don't
think it matters once it's all said and not done the results would be the same. It has nothing to do with old people because the age of the nature
of the will to power and the ego, go way farther back into history then any one persons age or age of a group of persons, so an old person is not
even a drop in the ocean compared to the nature of things. And the nature of things dictate, the nature of things, ie things you cant control, but
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,
Nope wont do much, same old same old. It's silly to think that it would change anything at all. After all were all not that different when it comes
down to it.
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?
Sometimes and sometimes not, youthful idealism is just untested idealism at best, plain stupidity and ignorance at worst. But fresh ideas and
creativity are always worth looking at, but all of the above that you wrote is not confined into any one age group.
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,
No there not, quit lying, they just think they are more spiritual. Though there ignorance is refreshing and will bring a breath of fresh air into
culture and the art's. See who said youthful ignorance is not useful or good, in some situations it can be, because you have to be pretty ignorant of
the old mantra to create a new mantra or else you would just get bogged down in the same ol same ol, mantra.
Who is with me! Youthquake! Who is with me??
Well since I have yet to reach the age of uselessness 30yr old as you put the limit. Might as well, so I'm with you. But whats our first priority?
Basically whats the plan here other then young people are better then old people?
Do we stop the evil old people and there rainbow suspender wearing ways?
Or do we go after the big spenders?
Is there a plan involved at all?
Why do I get the felling your ideas and this whole thing is not new, oh no! not new thing by a long shot! in fact you can say everybody and
generation has this same brilliant idea in there youth and the mid-day of there lives. Every generation thinks it knows better then the last
generation. But really they are all just standing on the crutches of every other generation that came before them, were every new generation didn't
really understand the previous generation or the current generation, and vice versa. And so it will go on, and so the scenery will change.
Oh I can already tell how this will begin, its middle, and it's end, and so could an even older civilization, ever hear of "the riddle of the
"Which creature in the morning goes on four legs, at mid-day on two, and in the evening upon three, and the more legs it has, the weaker it be?"
The answer as everybody knows is "man" or "mankind". Crawling when a baby at the morning of its life, spry on two legs when in it's prime or
mid-day of life, and with its crutch when old. And the more crutches the weaker it be. But always dependent on one thing or another throughout
it's live and in every generation.
