My Generation does not require any of this. What? Everything you are thinking and worried about right now, the nightmare we are in. I never saw the need to identify to any generation or to talk in the name of a new generation, but such a mess you have made of this world, whilst the worst is still to come, I feel now perhaps there is a need to. A necessity maybe to speak about what will come after the destruction of most of our institutions and way of life.

You have proven that none of you could be trusted with any matter relating to humanity: happiness, compassion, sympathy, functionality, stability, reliability, jobs, survival, fairness, justice, intelligence. And so it is urgent we take over and fix everything, if it can still be achieved.

Far from acting like the wise patriarchs that you are supposed to be, building institutions to last, putting into place structures that can be relied upon in a society, and acting responsibly, quite the contrary: that older generation is out of control, does not know what its doing, does not seem to care for any of us, or for any consequence for its own actions, and here we are, my generation might witness the end of everything before accomplishing anything worthwhile in life.

I'm 35 years old, that's already an older generation. Many of you would qualify me as too young to do anything worthwhile, and it is true that I have achieved naught. Certainly not however from a lack of potential or wanting. But who can we trust?

The older generation invented nothing, they just kept what previous generations had wisely already put into place, and through some extreme greed and insanity, pushed everything to its own limits, and now everything we worked so hard for is crumbling to dust.

The younger generation is no better, it has been called Generation Kill, playing video games all day, trained from the cradle to be the perfect soldiers in the wars the older generation is so desperate to fight, in order to make huge profits through the war and security industries, and the resources it can steal, never mind if it brings about Armageddon. And me and my lost generation in between, who are we, what have we achieved? Nothing, we were never given the chance.

I suddenly feel the need to reassert myself, bring together people my age. I'm sure we are all sinking with the toilet's water, in dead end jobs around the country, already deep in debt because of expensive education, with no hope to ever buy a house or being able to afford having a family. With no hope for a better future but being at the bottom of any corporate hierarchy, suffering all sorts of neuroses. None of us have ever even been a manager in this pointless and soul destroying management structure, where everyone orders everyone around to disastrous effects, with one man at the top deciding everything for everyone else like a true despot. It is the same in politics.

We are witnessing the mess and destruction around us, powerless to do anything about it. Is it something related to generations? Or is it just that in that kind of system we have, only heartless evil people can get to the top, through lies and devastation of others, and once there, brainless as they are, things can only get worse?

Perhaps this is the case. Maybe our ways of climbing the social ladder is at fault, so any intelligent person gets out of the way when being confronted by some rotten human being willing to annihilate anything in its path to the top. We end up with the worst psychopathic people running everyone else around and making the most absurd decisions.

So I thought, perhaps I should start a movement of some sort. What's the quickest way to rally a whole bunch of people to my cause? Oh, people my age! I will tell them this is a generation thing, but in fact I will make it look like it is an emotional crisis, patriotic stuff, our country, our flag, our future. The old arguments, it will always work.

I would tell them, in my indoctrination tactics: let's eradicate anything that came before us! We don't need Democrats or Republicans, Liberals or Conservatives or Labours, we certainly do not need anyone who has been in politics over five years in his or her lifetime.

We do not require these soul destroying corporate structures, social hierarchies, so many people in authority at every level, that not one person can actually now think for himself or herself without being confronted by an army of people controlling their existence.

If I don't make it a generation thing, how else would I rally anyone, to make them understand that everything has gone wrong, and somehow it is in the structures that changes are required? Who else will I get on my side? Lunatics, conspiracy theorists, convicted defendants who already lost their head through sheer exasperation at this lack of any kind of freedom, and who ultimately decided that there was only one thing left to do: pick up a gun and start shooting?

We don't need marketing and sales executives, managers, directors, board directors, VPs, presidents, etc. Job titles that are so meaningless, you could not possibly have any idea of what these people do, if they happen to be doing anything worthwhile for society. So much management, and look where we are now.

We don't need capitalism, I think it has now proven without any doubt that it can only cyclically fail miserably. We don't need communism or socialism, also too riveted in corruption and misery. It's time to try something new.

The whole financial sector, it started well, it was well thought of, and then, a bunch of new decisions wiped it all out, to bring more money to the richest people. And now, the economy runs in a vacuum, where nothing is based on reality. Suddenly all the flaws of the economy and the financial sector are obvious to us all.

It all needs to be redrawn completely to compensate for so much greed and irresponsibility, keeping in mind that no one can be trusted, just like children. However, I would more readily now trust children's innocence to govern my affairs than old businessmen in politics plagued with conflict of interests that no one is denouncing as being totally unacceptable.
