Quote from: Baruch on July 24, 2020, 10:17:34 AMHoney! Who is Poo Bear!? (aka John Galt)Human beings are primates. It is wrong to expect too much of them, given that cats and dogs are clearly more intelligent (grifters).

Quote from: Rogue on July 26, 2020, 06:02:01 AMFictional character, bless your heart. Atlas Shrugged was a stupid movie. Are ya a nut picker? Do ya take the fringe ideology and apply that to all people on the left? What is too much? Wow. So much for accountability huh? Better pass out that free stuff and defund the police.
Quote from: Baruch on July 26, 2020, 11:39:13 AMWhat is the Left? Are married gays in favor of Comet Pizza? Didn't think so. Accountability happens with elections (assuming no illegal offense). But the Left views the law as only for their opponents (same as Islamists destroying infidels), they are Freedom Fighters, the law doesn't apply to them.Which novel have you written? So easy as an anarchist to cancel everyone and burn everything down. Sociopathy isn't a political agenda.

Quote from: Rogue on July 28, 2020, 06:42:13 AMLol. I like to think I am unique. I'm Gen X, the slackers. I grew up on Motley Crue and Madonna lol. Who doesn't have love beads?
Quote from: Baruch on July 28, 2020, 11:07:10 AMGen X eh? Well good for y'all. After the Boomers are guillotined, you folks are next ;-)
Quote from: Rogue on July 29, 2020, 08:43:55 AMI am fascinated by the generation wars. How can people be so fucked up that they are afraid of their own descendants? A lot of my perspective on things is this- I'm not going to live forever. My generation will die. Why shouldn't I support my son? Do millennials have personal autonomy?
Quote from: drunkenshoe on July 29, 2020, 10:11:05 AM"Slackers." LOL, I like that. It's accurate for defining us.
Quote from: SGOS on July 29, 2020, 09:33:51 AMWhen I first started hearing about generation this and generation that, I thought, "Where have I been?" I always thought generations were more nebulous, and lasted something like 36 years, and there was actually no actual membership in a generation. There were just people growing up.It's not like all the women squirt out kids on January 1st of a particular year, and then don't have kids again until January 1st 36 years later. Every generation blends with the one before it, and the one after it. Chronologically, that's just the way it happens. Every individual is part of what comes before and part of what will come after.Then some hot shot social worker, or more likely some journalist that didn't have anything to write about decided he should pigeonhole what clearly doesn't lend itself to groups into groups with specific characteristics. Apparently, he had never considered the Fallacy of Generalization, but humans being bored with life and themselves, took up the banner and chanted, "Look! We have something do, something to bitch about, and here's to generalizing about everything. Now we can know who is lazy, who is productive, who is depressed, and who isn't worth a shit just by the date they were born."And this is considered serious shit by some people. Some of this is just my personal experience. I've been told about the flaws of the latest generation, whatever they call it I can't remember, but I don't see the same flaws. I see a group of people whose brains have not yet been corrupted by society, who offer our only hope for the future. This may be the group with a modicum of sense still left in their heads. I see hope. Others see a generation that must be indoctrinated or destroyed or civilization will collapse.
