Shut up and listen

I’m with you, and I’m a middle aged woman, a Gen Xer. I adore your generation, keep doing what you’re doing. I don’t think you young people are naive, I think you are awake.

The ‘affirmative’ vote, a vote for something rather than against, is considered a protest vote while the ‘insane’ (“the definition of insanity”) vote is a smart one.

Up is down these days, isn’t it?

Another one that annoys me is the “wasted” vote — this doesn’t make sense to me either. It seems to be the opposite of a waste to vote for what you want — isn’t that literally what a vote is? Besides, it’s not just about “winning” for me. It’s about turning things around and moving them in a better direction.

I don’t understand why my generation hasn’t figured it out yet, but yours brings me hope for our future.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
