The Next America

One day, the millennial generation will inherit the planet. 

If we take a step back and look at the world in a high level view, there are some things that become clear. There seems to be a generational disconnect on how things should work. Almost like the old, and the new. It’s like the world is struggling to adjust to the monumental leaps we’ve made as a society, and government is a particular subject of these growing pains. 

We are approaching a point where the relevance of title, birth, and class are increasingly irrelevant. Anyone can make it in a world supported by capitalism. This societal mobility can also be attributed to globalism and the internet. Instant access to information, the quickness of physical travel, and other technological achievements have had enormous social repercussions. The chains of the masses have essentially been unshackled, and the majority finally has access to real information and opportunity, allowing anyone and everyone to reach their full potential. There is still a ways to go in parts of the world, but it’s a start.

The important thing is that we are gradually leveling the playing field, which is something the higher ups do not want. That’s what we’re seeing today. We’re seeing the liberation of the majority. And it’s beautiful. 

To be perfectly honest, I think that’s one reason we see the establishment fighting tooth and nail to hold on to the antiquated policies and ways of doing things. That’s why we’re seeing so much Trump bashing and Hillary baiting by the media. The interests of much of Americas corporate, public, and privates sectors lie together, and they cunningly take care of each other. Of course you can’t really blame them – they’re used to their way of life and this evolution is a threat to it. But this enormous surge of Trumpers seems to reflect the American mentality that they’re sick of being treated as lesser individuals.

But that seems to be the state of things. I suppose people will keep pushing until it doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like or where you were born – you have all the rights and say as anyone else.  From what I can tell, my generation seems to agree that there is a certain degree of universal equality. There are outliers of course, but I think that will be sorted out in time as popular opinion takes its course.
