Yeah...let me know how that works out for ya?
It is proven that the children of today and tomorrow have no pride in themselves, and expect a handout at every curve. I used to work in the educational field, ( a university to be exact ) and you wont believe some of the most naive comments and thought processes that come from the college students of today....our country is doomed with that type of ignorance. Not to mention a wasted education.

Agreed but for one point.
Every generation says the same thing about generations past.
Who says the young will make it better? It has never happened in human history. That's how we got to this mess in the first place. Younger generations doing the same thing as the last...but with more advanced technology and knowledge taken from the elders.
It's not the age or knowledge, it's how you use it. And so far, it's never worked out.
Just because the younger generation is angry (rightly so) doesn't mean they will all of a sudden change the World.
In an ideal World, the younger generation would point out the mistakes, learn from the mistakes of their elders and then use the wisdom to make the difference.
Human Nature however, makes us repeat history. This is our downfall.
BTW, I do agree with your point.
I used to be young and foolish...Now I'm old and stupid. Your turn next.

Well you could say God thinks its a good idea for the young to rule. He did tell his followers to gather the eldest son of each family and they shall be the Levite tribe and they shall be in charge of everything holly. They also got 10 percent from the other 11 tribes. My math says they got 110 percent for the Levites and the best of all cattle and crops. So come on you holly rollers give the kids the power and glory they are entitled to. And give up the best you have for them God said so.
