U.S. Pol, Still Bitter About Boomers
Pointing a finger at boomers is just repeating the same mistake in a different direction, and centering them once again.
Blame all you want or look for a savior elsewhere; the fact remains that the people in the world right now are the only ones who can do anything about it.
I’ve been hearing this whole “the kids will save us” line since I was a child myself. In the 1980s.
What that line means is “I can’t be bothered to lift a finger, so I’ll make someone else take the responsibility”.
I'm 39 years old. If the people who had said that about my generation as children had decided to actually do something about either climate change or white supremacy, imagine where we’d be by now.
"The life that I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place and time my touch will be felt. Our lives are linked together. No man is an island."
-- Frederick Buechner, The Hungering Dark, via Dad
I've asked this before, but since I can't search for that thread... I'm not going to spend an hour backscrolling my toots... :/
as there seems to be no english word for Fernweh it's homesickness but the opposite - you're homesick for travelling away from home.
in german heimweh = homesickness and fernweh = far-away-sickness (literally)

Denver #climatestrike was huge! Thousands of well intentioned people trying to make a difference. (And a couple assholes, but I'll leave that grossness on birbsite.)
a few pictures from yesterdays #climatestrike!
on the three with the cargobikes and the trailer is from our "strike delivery". we had made a few "strike breads" and rode through the city with borrowed cargo bikes, delivering them to a few organic stores. (some were closed anyway.)
the last picture was from before the demo at the parliament in berlin, the organizes estimated well over 200 000 people were there.

Wow. A "moral entrepreneur" can never be satisfied. Their whole job is to rage against whatever in the most animated way possible (e.g. on cable news channels)
