In the end, I guess we really can’t blame the baby boomers. What do they know? What have they lived through? Only the most prosperous decades this country has ever seen. Sure, they’ll point to Vietnam and Watergate and the civil rights movement. Great. They lived through all those terrible times. Forty fucking years ago. I got news for you, folks. What we are facing right now, is going to make the late 60’s look like a fucking cake walk. And in the meantime, they’ve spent every fucking year since the end of the 60’s, consuming. Making money. To have more things. And for what????
These are the folks we’re letting handle this crisis. People who only care about money. They only know selfishness, greed and consumption. It doesn’t work any more. It won’t work ever again. Yet, we’re letting them make the decisions? I don’t want someone who’s studied the Great Depression to hand out billions of dollars. I want someone who’s been through it, to guide us through this nightmare. Someone who’s turned a trouble company around, maybe. Someone who’s qualified to handle a crisis. Where are these people? Where are today’s leaders???
They say the folks that lived thru WW I, survived the great depression and won WW II were the greatest generation. I say fuck that. WE can be the greatest generation. Us, the wrongly coined “Generation X”. WE have the tools, WE have the minds and the technology to change everything. WE can be the greatest generation. We only need to pull our heads out of our collective asses and get our priorities straight. Blu-ray discs, celebrity antics and reality television don’t matter any more. Rome is about to burn, Nero.
This is our opportunity. This crisis is our chance. We can let this country burn, or we can turn the tide. We can right this fucking ship. Either way, the road ahead of us is not a short one. I hate to say it, but it’s true...we have to unlearn what we’ve learned.
Welcome to our re-education, boys and girls. Make no mistake about it, we're in for a world full of hurt... C'mon! You know you wanna read more...
