Roger Marolt: It’s time to reshape the old school

We are well. The future of the country is in the hands of young people.

It is not only their agility of mind, their objective points of view and their new ideas that will win the new day. Their greatest asset is simply being young. In about 20 years, we older people will be taking a lot of nonsense with us to nursing homes. Shortly after, he will be buried. We made the mess. We cannot let it go. Young people move forward. We have to get out of their way.

They are another generation out of slavery. The distance allows for a wider view and a sharper perspective. From this distance, the darkness of slavery in America looks extremely disgusting, and not just as an unhappy chapter in our history.

The distance in time extends the romantic ties with the pre-war south to the breaking point. The closest relatives of this generation from the days of slavery will bear the titles “great, great, great” before “grandfather”, “grandmother”, “aunt” and “uncle” which will not be remembered. of no mythical history. These characters will be strangers. For a nation further removed from the crime scenes, there will be less to deny and much more to learn through the dissection of history and how our nation was infected at its core.

Our children will understand that we don’t need to be writhing in eternal guilt for the sins of our ancestors, but neither should we be too proud of our entire heritage. They will wonder how we learned more about the extermination of bison in the Great Plains than the slaughter of Native Americans.

The next generation will not be afraid that whites will become a minority race in the United States. It will happen. They will shrug their shoulders. The discussion of racial majority will be a statistical anecdote. Young people will live in this diverse country, skillfully managed by a multicultural electorate. It will seem silly that some of their parents worry about such nonsense.

No one but a few crazy people will deny global warming two decades from now. As the next generations take over, discussing climate change will not be about its existence, but rather what remains to be done about it. The objective will not be focused on saving the ski. It will be about protecting the poor who bear an inordinate burden of damage caused by climate change.

Fewer young people will turn to the fossil fuel industries as career options. Even fewer will know a coal miner. People who enter these industries will not do it blindly, taking on roles in these industries will lead to their retirement. These will not be jobs worthy of political animosity.

The majority of people under the age of 30 do not find sexual orientation or gender identification to be remarkable.

A gun. Those under 50 are more likely to imagine an assault rifle than Davey Crockett’s musket. It is less and less a symbol of freedom and more an anachronistic icon of senseless death.

Young people will bring with them in their domination of political culture the logic and perspective that they have acquired by watching how our generation smears democracy. What they roll their eyes at will be tossed in the compost bucket for the undigestible rhetorical rinds and cut fat from common sense meat.

They think it’s ridiculous that Democrats only agree with Democrats and Republicans with Republicans on every issue. This mode of behavior is a fiction created by us to deny the complexity of human identity. This is completely illogical, statistically impossible and irrefutable proof that we have stopped thinking on our own. It’s no surprise to young people that we are so enthusiastic about replacing news with conspiracy theories to avoid having to think about it.

Young people understand the word cyber a lot more than we do. Yes, the internet creates problems, but have we noticed that the vast majority of them are created by right clicking on the part of people over 40? We do not understand. We believe everything we see on it. We armed him. Our children are shaking their heads. We worry about what Facebook is doing to them without realizing that we are already the dumbass.

Young people understand that full consensus on any issue is impossible, but also that things can be found to agree on with anyone, and that doesn’t even take a lot of effort.

Children are rebellious. The older they get, the more they notice and tackle our flaws. For a parent, it is a pain in breeding. But, for the planet, it may be a natural phenomenon necessary for survival.

Roger Marolt knows it’s time to reshape the old school and it will take the efforts of young people to do it. [email protected]
