How I'll react to the new prophets when they try to blame me

Quote:I hate to say it but the future does belong to them. When we are old and will die, they will be alive and thrive and build the world to their liking. We have our time. They have theirs too. We can advise, we cannot force the future to our liking when we are irrelevant and we will be irrelevant one day to the young which will come sooner than you think. We would need political power to ensure that we have those needs and desires met in ways that that can ensure that we are ok, but eventually they would take control. You cannot stop the tide. The waves of the ocean cannot be stopped when in mass. You can try to stand up to bullies when together, but the future belongs to the young in the end. The best we can do is create understanding and not alienate them.

But this isn't my time and I'm young; all of the changes people seem to want now are changes I don't want so it's like I'm not being represented at all. Since in my youth, my desires were not represented, I will sure as hell try to push my desires when I'm old. I don't want things like lab grown meat yet changes like that are going to be pushed on me just because "society says so". I don't like the cultural changes happening in the youth and I can't fully relate to the older generations either. I know I can't change the world so I decide to opt out of it and only push things out of my personal way so nothing affects my personal life. This is why I'm so pushy; I have to be if I'm going to be against an overwhelming tide. Since my time didn't happen when young, I will be pushier when old. I'm not dead yet so it's still my world no matter what age I am. I see it as hypocritical if the older generation gives into their children to have things that they want to deny me. It's not fair so I'll call it like it is. I always saw it as hypocritical that nobody defended the people who were forced to get lobotomies in the 1940s and 1950s yet somehow when their brat kids started protesting then all of a sudden they gave into them just because they were the new youth. Oh it's okay for their brat kids to be different and even disrespectful criminals but God forbid their peers were even slightly out of the norm. That is hypocrisy.

Will you be significant enough to be a victim of persecution? That will depend upon what your Millennial Generation teaches the next Idealist generation.

You cant force people nor can they force you. You can say your piece, stay true to what is right to you if it is right for you and not let the threat invade your peace that it is right for you. Those who are willing to listen to your truth when it is said in reason and in a reasonable tone will hear you. Truth does not need to be shouted in anger. But it does need to be heard. Thing is its up to THEM to hear us or not.

Their opinions matter in the sense that they will try to create a world that is against you and will try to turn the group against you. When they decide to bully you and construct a world that is against your very needs and desires. It doesn't need to be shouted in danger towards reasonable people but towards unreasonable people? You need to be twice or even 3 times as stubborn against them. Because they will never respect your views but they will respect the consequences to making a world that is difficult for you. I don't have time to wait for a social movement to be on my side when I need to survive this now. I think the reason the world isn't a better place is because the bullies of the world aren't stood up to when they decide to create things like miserable working conditions and not making simple changes that could benefit people's lives with little effort. We need to stand up against them if we want to make the world a better place.
I hate to say it but the future does belong to them. When we are old and will die, they will be alive and thrive and build the world to their liking. We have our time. They have theirs too.

So am I, I am a fellow millennial after all. Not everything goes everyone's way I am afraid to say. Not everyone will be happy. But you can fight the good fight towards reason and justice with those who stand by your side. You can push your desires and should do! Use that anger wisely for what you wish the world to be, just don't alienate and keep reason on your side. I am with you on free speech btw. This is the basis of a free country after all otherwise we head into the realm of NK and we do not want to end up like them. If no one fights, those in power and those who wish to enforce their control over others continue to do so. Fight....with reason on your side. Same when we are old. But the future always will belong to what the young make of it eventually. Which applies to us now. Thing is....what do we want to do about it to shape the world to our liking now? Do we scream complain and turn people away from listening to us? Or do we use reason and logic and facts and fight for what we want in a logical way?

Can you shape the world to your liking now? From my perspective it would take changing around 100 million people. I don't see that as feasible. How do you do it? For me I want to delve into niches and forms of escapism so I don't have to face the new societal changes. Insulate myself from society by choice so nothing affects me. I'm not going to buy lab meat even if it becomes popular. I don't listen to popular music and I think whatever I want. Society can't tell me what to do. How do you change 100 million? I can't so I just avoid most of the parts of society I don't like and create my own culture and own experiences.

Here is another thought: I always saw it as hypocritical that nobody defended the people who were forced to get lobotomies in the 1940s and 1950s yet somehow when their brat kids started protesting then all of a sudden they gave into them just because they were the new youth. Oh it's okay for their brat kids to be different and even disrespectful criminals but God forbid their peers were even slightly out of the norm. That is hypocrisy IMO to ignore the pleas of their outcast peers yet give into their own kids just because they decide to riot and burn cities to the grown in a tantrum.

Cant say I am fully convinced we cant change the world as we can do our bit and it starts within us then around us. I hear you on the pushy thing. When people don't listen it is frustrating. Yes we are in a worse situation than our parents were at the same age. Sucks to be the civic type at this time in our lives. Yes you tell them. It is not fair and I am a straight up person too so I appreciate that. Thing is what can be done to make the greatest impact for what you do want? Yes there is a lot of hypocrisy I find in older people and what they taught. It reads as do as I say, not as I do...….because I taught you better than that. Thing is I also think to myself, for some older folk....maybe they learned as they aged? It really does depend on context of each individual situation.

This is why I'm focused on having fun and doing whatever I want in the 4T. It's useless to try to plant seeds in the winter so you do things like going sledding or drinking hot chocolate or skiing. I don't see the world as having to be worse than they had it. We can use this time to have fun until it's all over with. Doing the right thing typically results in no results so my solution is to not focus on doing what "society" says so and live life like you're a cancer patient with a year left to live. I only live once so I'm spending my youth doing the "wrong thing" even if it results in failure because there's no security in a 4T anyways. There is no way we can waste a 4T. Since there is no security, this is the best time to do whatever you want and have a nothing to lose attitude.

I can shape my world to my liking by first healing myself from within. May sound weird but our thoughts impact our actions and feelings and reactions and thoughts of the world around us. I suffer cptsd so I am working on it at present and starting at the core. As for the world around me, I live in Christchurch New Zealand. We literally did change the world around us. We already have and are still working on it. Do you know we elected our first millennial Prime Minister? We cleaned up after the mess created by city shattering earthquakes and are rebuilding a whole city and we did it together in thousands. How do you do it? Start from within and gather your team. We created a group online where we recruited like minded people to help achieve a common massive goal. Same thing politically too. It gives you a bigger voice. Broadcast it to the world. This is how we changed our part of the world. By social media and by gathering teams. You are not alone. There are people who will agree with you. I am one of them. I also have tried insulating myself from society so nothing affects me (cptsd) it only made me suicidal and depressed. I hope it does not do that to you. I am still trying to pull myself out of that one. Yes, do what makes you happy. I remember avoiding for instance when HP had just come out. I was the only one not reading the book and rather enjoyed writing my own novel as that was my form of escapism from bullies and still is to this day.

Are you sure about that and why? 

I totally agree with following your heart and living life to the fullest. Not sure what the "wrong" thing would be. But if it is against going against what the expectation is well I am a rebel at heart too and neither like being told I have to follow what everyone else expects of you. It is wonderfully freeing to be true to yourself. 

As for doing the right thing, it depends on whether it is morally true to you or a value society expects of you. Again depends on the context. But it is a debatable topic and an interesting one at that.

I've gotten my ideas shouted down on social media. How do you get people to respond to you? I think doing things in person on a one on one scale is better to shape your personal world because people are more reasonable one on one than a mob. Right now, when I pay attention to the way the world is going I get angry. When I don't pay attention and withdraw into my own fantasy world, I feel happy. What changes do you think we should be focusing on now? This is very interesting.

I guess there are some things you can do to improve your life in the 4T and help others around you and help yourself which I've done and I don't consider a waste at all but it's more of a prep time than a building time. I've learned a lot in this time period so I guess not all the time is spent on what's traditionally fun but what is fulfilling within.

I guess my reasoning is kind of nihilistic. In this analogy like if you're 300 pounds due to a glandular disorder and are going to be fat and unhealthy no matter what. Why eat healthy then if it won't bring you results? Just stuff yourself and call it a day. It's a completely different story to the person who's self control can make them healthy. It's also like how there's no point in being frugal if you know you're gonna be poor for life. Why not enjoy the now if the future isn't guaranteed?

Sometimes systems even see children as a menace. How do you explain the children getting forcibly medicated because they're hyperactive or different? This is a war against their brains because the system deems these children menaces that need to be forced into normality. People don't need to be significant to be a victim of persecution. In fact, the most insignificant are the biggest victims of the world.

Of course. So have I as I for one for instance am against circumcision and this really fires people up. Doesn't stop me though. But ill tell you what you can do about it. For instance, look up the Student Volunteer Army. For instance, when we had our earthquakes to solve a major issue we first discussed as a group what we can do. There will always be people who disagree. That is inevitable as that is life. Life does have backlash. Stand on what feels right to you though. Once you have people who agree....network. Create a social media group on fb and anywhere else you wish to get the word out. Be vocal in groups you are involved in. You will get hate. But you also will get people on your side who may want to join your advertised group. It starts small like a seed. But that is how us kiwi millennials changed the world in our corner of the world. After that, we mobilized. We did the exact same thing in political groups and we got in our first millennial leader. What changes we should be focusing on now really depends on the best quality of life for us, those around us as a whole and the planet around us and that really depends on who is answering that question. I have my own ideals around that.

I've learned a lot in this time period so I guess not all the time is spent on what's traditionally fun but what is fulfilling within.

I guess my reasoning is kind of nihilistic. In this analogy like if you're 300 pounds due to a glandular disorder and are going to be fat and unhealthy no matter what. Why eat healthy then if it won't bring you results? Just stuff yourself and call it a day. It's a completely different story to the person who's self control can make them healthy. It's also like how there's no point in being frugal if you know you're gonna be poor for life. Why not enjoy the now if the future isn't guaranteed?
Agreed. There are ways certainly to improve your life for yourself and those you care about and the community at large. Definitely isn't a waste. It can be quite empowering when done on a massive scale with like minded people also. But very fruitful to do it on a smaller scale also. I instantly think of my best mate who has eating problems and as such health problems which is due to her metabolism and also her depression. For her it ended up coming down to seeking therapy, medication for it also and the right type of weight loss plan which actually is bearing fruit for her. So perhaps we can call it finding the right strategy for you individually? Which makes me think of my job where it depends on each individual problem at hand. So fight with the best strategy for maximum results while taking time for you to enjoy life and work on improving life for you inside and out and for the world at large for what you wish to see manifest.

May sound weird but our thoughts impact our actions and feelings and reactions and thoughts of the world around us. I suffer cptsd so I am working on it at present and starting at the core. As for the world around me, I live in Christchurch New Zealand. We literally did change the world around us. We already have and are still working on it. Do you know we elected our first millennial Prime Minister? We cleaned up after the mess created by city shattering earthquakes and are rebuilding a whole city and we did it together in thousands. How do you do it? Start from within and gather your team. We created a group online where we recruited like minded people to help achieve a common massive goal. Same thing politically too. It gives you a bigger voice. Broadcast it to the world. This is how we changed our part of the world. By social media and by gathering teams. You are not alone. There are people who will agree with you. I am one of them. I also have tried insulating myself from society so nothing affects me (cptsd) it only made me suicidal and depressed. I hope it does not do that to you. I am still trying to pull myself out of that one. Yes, do what makes you happy. I remember avoiding for instance when HP had just come out. I was the only one not reading the book and rather enjoyed writing my own novel as that was my form of escapism from bullies and still is to this day.

I've gotten my ideas shouted down on social media. How do you get people to respond to you? I think doing things in person on a one on one scale is better to shape your personal world because people are more reasonable one on one than a mob. Right now, when I pay attention to the way the world is going I get angry. When I don't pay attention and withdraw into my own fantasy world, I feel happy. What changes do you think we should be focusing on now? This is very interesting.

I think it's extremely rare for people to listen to anyone on social media, unless that person already agrees with you. This is an invention whose utility is very questionable. It's fun, but real communication on it is rare. As Bob Dylan said in 1965, "I would not feel so all alone, everybody must get stoned!" He was something of an aspie complainer too and certainly defied the conventional views of authority.

Will you be significant enough to be a victim of persecution? That will depend upon what your Millennial Generation teaches the next Idealist generation.

Sometimes systems even see children as a menace. How do you explain the children getting forcibly medicated because they're hyperactive or different? This is a war against their brains because the system deems these children menaces that need to be forced into normality. People don't need to be significant to be a victim of persecution. In fact, the most insignificant are the biggest victims of the world.

Destructive as a lobotomy is, were it necessary for taking away the dangerous characteristics of a sociopath, I would be for it. Better that than the 'lobotomy' that Ted Bundy got -- electric charges that destroyed his considerable, if twisted, brain. But let us also consider his innocent victims.

Hyperactivity? I wonder how many people in the entertainment business are hyperactive. Is hyperactivity that bad -- or is it simply inconvenient for such bureaucratic institutions as K-12 education?

With autism we need to teach people how to get away with it. Sticking people into low-paying jobs that they hate and ensuring that they can do nothing else in our pay-to-play society is itself cruelty.

Oh it's okay for their brat kids to be different and even disrespectful criminals but God forbid their peers were even slightly out of the norm. That is hypocrisy IMO to ignore the pleas of their outcast peers yet give into their own kids just because they decide to riot and burn cities to the grown in a tantrum.

If you see the GIs in a positive light, you could say that they accepted that their youthful conformism went too far, so they gave their kids some leeway.

If you don't, you might say that they only did well when they had visionary leaders and pragmatic managers, but were totally lost without them. Yes, they defeated Hitler, but were completely helpless against some bratty kids.
