In response to the Evans-Pritchard column on Ireland's re-enslavement, a reader comments:
"bear in mind that the VAST majority of the young people in question fully believe that the state owes them and others the goodies that they've been getting"
You're right, and the solution is to TALK to them.
Several months ago I attended an "America Speaks" session. That got the fire going in my belly. Getting gas on the way home, I talked to the Gen-Z kid filling my tank (no self-service here in OR). I explained to him that my generation was in the process of leaving his generation with a debt they cannot possibly pay and that I'm ashamed of my despicable generation. He was already dimly aware of it and he seemed to appreciate me talking to him, adult to adult, about it.
I need to be talking to more of those kids. They need to be encouraged to recognize this ongoing f**k story for what it is, and know that some of us recognize it too.
We must take responsibility for our future circumstances, by which I mean, refuse SS/medicare/medicaid as much as possible, and show them by example that they must take responsibility for theirs.
And I would add, teach them why certain folks have richly earned extra-special attention.
Cap it with instruction on the various and sundry means of attention-paying, and you will have greatly complicated the OpFor's solution.
Or do you really think that a bunch of half-crippled, grumpy bastards are enough to stomp Leviathan?
