I'm Sick Of This Generational Warfare Crap
Disclaimer: This does not apply to anyone here, but is rather a general observation on how younger generations are viewed on and offline. If I offend anyone here I apologize in advance, but frankly this kind of generational bullshit needs to be called out for what it is.
Seriously. People really do need to shut the fuck up about how lazy the younger generations are (supposedly). After all, younger folks have always been the cool thing to bash since....well, forever.
We have older people doing everything they can to destroy science education at the behest of a dying oil industry under the giuse of preserving deeply held personal beliefs, destroying jobs and what's left of organized labor for the sake of corporate profits and shareholder dividends, destroying health and medicine for profit, and they're blaming their kids, grandkids and great grandkids because there's literally nothing left for the porkies to plunder? Fuck that with a sharp stick.
Those older folks who insist on destroying the planet as their retirement plan don't even realize how fuckin' good they had it. We WISH we could have worked our way through college, or gotten a decent job right out of high school or worked our way up through a company. But we don't have any of that.
Instead, many of us younger folks have to work 2 or three fast food jobs in addition to acting as a taxi through Uber or Lyft just to pay insanely high rent for a run-down apartment even after we got the education we were all told to get in order to get a 'good' job that was sent overseas, filled by workers with H-1B Visas or automated before we even graduated. Or worse, some are forced into imperial service by way of economic draft, i.e. kill some brown people for a few years and get a free education and a guaranteed contractor job if you're lucky.
And what about younger folks with disabilities like myself who can't get a drivers' license? Most places won't even interview you unless you can drive, even if you meet most requirements and qualifications. Social Security? Medicare? Medicaid? Forget about it. For me, at least, they're utterly inaccessible which is why I gave up applying for them.
So even if us younger folks are lazy, how can anyone blame us for that? Laziness is an American virtue because we're always looking for the next get rich quick scheme. Our economy is built around that shit from the top down. Note how I didn't say the next big idea, because real transformative ideas are often swept under the rug for the same reasons I mentioned above. So if we are lazy, it's because we learned from the best. No whining from some reality TV star pretending to do 'dirty' jobs or youtube/facebook/twitter shitposter about how we supposedly hate hard work can change that fact.
See ya around,
