The internet, feminism, civil rights, the EPA, heath food stores, organic gardening, LGBT rights, Roe vs. Wade, the anti-war movement. And, as has been amply documented, the power structure in America is a very tiny group of very rich white men and the corporations they control. This did not happen over night. By the time most people from my generation were teenagers they had been disenfranchised from any meaningful political power. The last serious threat to the power structure in America was the Vietnam war protests. And while we’re on the subject, where was your generation when Bush invaded Iraq and Afghanistan? Or the endless wars we are involved in today? How about 2016? Why the hell did you let Trump get elected? I’m thinking your kids are really going to hate you for that.
So here’s my suggestion to you; grow up. Recognise you aren’t one iota different than all of the people you are criticising. The only thing different is the circumstance you were born into. This is true of all of us and there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it. So quit your bitching and go make something positive happen that your kids will no doubt hate you for but was the best you could do under the circumstance.
