Our parents are wrecking everything

30 Aug

I’m sick and dizzy and weird feeling today, and generally bitter at the world. If you feel that way too, and are a member of my generation, and would like to feel more bitter, I strongly suggest you read Michael O’Hare’s letter to his students at Berkeley.

The gist? Promises and commitments made by generations before us are being completely undone by our parent’s generation, because they’re unwilling to ‘pay forward’ the things that their parents provided for them, and for us. Whether you agree with all of it or not, it’s awesome food for thought on how the choices currently made by politicians are not benefiting younger generations. Way to go, guys.
