The Lost Generation?
Move out of home, go to school, get a loan, graduate, get a job, pay your taxes, get a mortgage, buy a house, get married, have kids, grow old, and die. My generation, and those that follow, are incapable of meeting the expectations that are held up for us to meet. The world we are living in is far different from those generations which preceded us. Using Canada as an example, this episode examines the coming economic crisis, developing social youth movements, and the failure of expectations for the youth in Canada, North America, and the world at large. The game is rigged, and we are set up to fail. The time has come for the youth to understand the world we are inheriting, and to make a choice: do we passively accept a suffering existence, or do we actively create something new? Older generations must also realize that they can no longer coddle and pressure their children to do as they did, but must also accept the realities of the world, and work with the youth in creating something new. So, will we be a lost generation, or a creative generation?
