No one said life was going to be easy. But come on people, everyone thought no matter how tough it will be at least it would be simple, in terms of what to expect and what to get, right. As a millennial, I grew up in two different worlds, yes I’m a millennial, a pre iPhone one. I’ve seen the birth of internet. I’ve seen the rise of market Capitalism; or as some would say Consumerism.
I’ve also seen terrorism, the views of Catholic Church changing, and people getting more and more conservative in their approach. I’m also afraid I’m seeing the decline of Western hegemony of political power, also the rise of the Asian communist giant China (who knew, right).
So the world is not simple, your life is not simple, the environment too is changing, literally I mean. (Climate change too is not simple, not for idiots and Scientists alike).
So the world has become a shitty place, people are becoming less tolerant (and more religious), while majority of my generation are turning out to be ignorant (worse than hippies in their negligence of world affairs), and to top it all off, we have a Trumpster in office. Simple, I don’t think so. If everything goes south, I am going to blame the baby boomers, (Not Sensei and Jim) just kidding, or am I? See it’s anything but simple.
