I was having a conversation with my wife this morning about all that ails this great country of ours. One thing that I think is a real problem, and you all tell me if I’m right or wrong, is the deference we give young people. I’ve heard it time and again: “Let’s listen to the kids!”
Might part of the problem be that we are listening to the kids too much? I mean look, they are dumb! I mean, we are all were dumb when we were young, coming up with dumb ideas, and doing dumb things. And as we grew older and learned from our mistakes and grew wiser. What got me thinking about this was a statistic on some podcast I heard about how many young people have a favorable view of communism. So what? Who cares? They don’t know what communism is!
Maybe part of our problem these days is we give young people too much credit, and they don’t listen to their elders.
Or maybe I’m just a curmudgeon.
Or maybe both!Published in
