    The older generation played a huge part in shaping this society, sure, but the younger generations have contributed to the mess also. I just try not to be negative about it, I personally don't think we're "screwed". Some people make out that the world is in complete chaos and meltdown.... and it isn't. Sure the world isn't stable, but when was it ever stable? Some aspects of our life will be better than past generations, and some aspects will be worse... in the end life goes on.

    We still have huge opportunities in developed society that others around the world can only dream of. Stay positive and work to better yourself as a person, don't focus on the faults of society because it will only discourage you. We limit ourselves by how determined we are to get something, blaming society is just making excuses. Hard work always pays off, that is still as true as it was 100 years ago or 10,000 years ago.

    We are in the most stable point in history IMO, and I think the older generation saved us, from nuclear war, from being controlled (By pan-European ideas from hitler+ the eu). I have no quarrel with democracy, sorry,

    No, move on.
    Think about the older generation, some of them lived during world war two, who are we to criticise a generation who unlike us, didn't have it so privileged.
