Having read the OP, this is the general idea that I am getting from what is presented:
That people, who are older, have messed up and need to step down and allow for those who are younger to take more of a direct control over the
situation in all areas, such as government and business.
While the idea may seem appealing, however, life is never like that and ultimately will not lead to anything good in the long run. The older
generation, while they may seem to do things that are redundant, do have the years of experience and wisdom behind their actions, to be able to ensure
that what every the goals are, get accomplished. I once managed a business, successfully, having been assigned there, and taking a look at what all
was going on. While the majority of the staff was young, 90%, the condition of the business was in shambles. They took no pride in what they were
doing, and it was on the verge of chaos. They often did not understand that the very rules they were wanting to break, were there to protect them
from potential lawsuits. Time and time again, this was demonstrated, some costing thousands of dollars to correct. It was not for a lack of
training, as they did sign off on that they understood the rules, and they understood the job. (I had them read and sign off on the job description.)
Yet, while there was some creativity, and for those who strived, promotion, they did not care, only seeing their job as a means to an end. When
asked about voting, all of them could care less about actually getting involved in the political system. Even when it came to the laws that
restricted them, they did not lift or want to lift a hand to actually fight for their rights and freedoms. Many often see the system to give to them,
rather than earning those benefits.
I think that all young people need to spend 4 years in the military first and foremost, before joining the workforce, or going to school, that way
they learn about discipline, and what it is to have to work hard to achieve a goal.
And with the way the education system is going, I feel sorry for the children that are graduating from schools, as the focus is more and more on
taking tests, rather than learning valuable skills to make them successful. Along with the rules, where the young people do not tend to get the
concept of cause and effect, a lack of fear and in some cases decency.
