If you were born after 1991, then you do not know what it is like to live without war. You have been living in a depressed, wartime society for your entire life.
That is an entire generation. You can see that the next generation is depressed; maybe that is why you see everyone under 30 with their heads buried firmly into their phones or into a video game or watching TV. However, it’s the not the phones, TV shows or video games that is making everyone depressed. Actually, those are temporarily alleviating their depression of wartime reality.
In fact, everything that is marketed is a form of depression alleviation. This is evidenced by the fact that daytime TV is 100% targeted at depressed people. Listen, the marketing teams know how to sell to depressed housewives; they’ve been doing it since the 1950s. Simply broadcast shows about dieting and health while running ads about fast food and caffeine. Caffeine and sugar mask the symptoms of depression (which is why they tell alcoholics in AA to carry around a chocolate bar).
More recently, the marketers learned that placing self-help shows during the day sell really well to people who are depressed seeking help. However, it’s a fact Dr Phil and Dr Oz work for the advertisers; they would never want their audience to cure their depression. Because have you noticed that depressed people don’t watch TV? Their audience would stop watching TV or put their phones down or just go outside as soon as they felt better.
It’s not the Millennials’ fault. It was the responsibility of the previous generation (Generation X) to keep a check and balance on our war activity. Instead, they allowed the Bush’s and Tony Blair’s to run our country rightinto the ground while they financed a war that they now cannot easily exit.
Why? The internet boom of the 90s made would be Democrat’s sell out and vote for Bush in 2000 and 2004. They let it happen because they traded their ideals for a better credit score and a nice car and a bigger house payment. The Universe responded to their greed by allowing 9/11 to happen and then followed that up by the mortgage scandal. That’s what greed gets you in the long run; scammed.
Now, we are currently fighting 8 wars, more than ever. And before you start blaming President Trump, none of these wars were started during his administration. The pint is, let’s all come together and start stopping these wars because it’s bad karma and we will have depressed children raising children sinking our children’s children deeper and further into metal depression than humans could possibly imagine.
