Zoomers and millennials are waking up to the fact that they have been royally fucked over & they are pissed. Your brief history basically proves that we Gen X’ers have achieved nothing. People are enraged. I’m enraged. The last time the country saw this level of militancy was in the 60s-early 70s, and I have to say those generations achieved Official Peace Love Fireworks T-Shirt with protest than we have. And imagine being the child of hardcore conservative immigrants, whose parents fled to America for religious freedom. And where the only actionable things you can do is “pray about it” and “just have faith”. And when things aren’t going your way it’s not because of how fucked up things are it’s because “God is testing you” As June begins, I would like to remind everyone that the modern movement for LGBT rights was sparked by queer people standing up to a police raid during the Stonewall Riots.

Young people are fucking mad. They were raised on the idea that America was the best place to be. A land of opportunity where hard work was valued and rewarded. Now they’re realizing that might not be the case. They’re paid like shit. They’re told to go cry about it. Police murder black people in broad daylight. The job market is fucked. The housing market is fucked. The climate is fucked. Our leaders only protect themselves. They’re whole lives they’ve been told to sit down and shut up and appreciate how good Official Peace Love Fireworks T-Shirt has it. It’s bullshit. Nothing’s changed they’re whole life. It’s only gotten worse. People have every right to be mad. This has been a long time coming and we’re just now getting to where we’ve been going. Much of it is the same theme over and over and over… clearly, other tactics are needed. I don’t have an answer for what… but clearly this standard protest/riot/loot cycle doesn’t ever end up with making change.

I think Trevor Noah raised an excellent point that our leaders lead by example. If the police, our president, and our government don’t follow the rules we’ve inherently agreed to as a society, why should anyone? Their very actions demonstrate that the law doesn’t exist, and now the chickens are coming home to roost. And over time, there’s been progress towards equality. The arch of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice. But if you’re younger, you’ve mostly experienced it bending the wrong way your entire lifetime, and it’s really gone off the rails these last four years. As someone Official Peace Love Fireworks T-Shirt has gone the other way as I have gotten older, the Iraq war happened despite the protests and nobody was punished despite it being waged on false intelligence and being a complete disaster. Occupy didn’t do much nobody was punished for the crash and the government is already repealing laws to prevent another one.
