Hey, you. Yeah you.
You know what?
My generation will change the world. We will be the first to create a world that makes sense.
I know, I know.
Our parents probably said the same thing.
But things are different now. We are different.
We haven’t grown up in the same restricting society that our parents grew up in.
We grew up in peace, we had more freedom than any other generation before us. And this gives us a luxury that our parents didn’t have. It gives us the courage to imagine a different world.
We can see more there’s more to life than a job, marriage and retirement. We dream about all the possibilities waiting for us out there. It gives us the courage to not only dream for ourselves, but for others too. We envision what the world could look like. A world that makes sense.
Our generation is well aware of the state of the world we live in. We know it’s broken. Just like every generation we have the best intentions to fix it. What makes us different from all the others, is that we will take action. Now is the time.
The world doesn’t make sense
If you think the world is okay the way it is, just watch the news tonight.
Skinny models, fat people at Mc Donald’s, cheap quality fashion items made to only last one season, child labor in clothing factories to produce said items, people from Africa stranding on European beaches, the throw-away culture in the West, wars, divorces, unemployment, burn out, dictatorships, global economic crisis, inflation …
I hope this list didn’t make you click the X button on the upper right. I know, it’s frustrating. It’s easy to think that this is how it’s supposed to be. That this is somewhat of a natural state. Problems, absurdity and destruction no matter where you look.
But what if…
What if this all comes down to us believing that it has to be this way. What if the world is what it is only because we believe it can’t be any different, act in a way that affirms that, see the negative results of humanity’s behaviors believe there’s no way out, act in alignment with that….
See, when you believe that there is no way to end child labor in clothing factories you’re most likely to give up any rebellion and start buying at the bad stores too, because you feel like your choice doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things.
Our world needs a global mind shift, followed by some massive action.
We’ve all been conditioned to accept defeat and acknowledge that the horrible state of the world is a given that we can’t change.
Now who would be brave and foolish enough to challenge the status quo and think differently?
That’s why I believe it’s on us to make the first step. Our parents, our teachers, the postman, everyone that has passed 30 has probably already been disillusioned and is too conditioned to be able to make even the slightest rebellious and unconventional change.
But we, the young people, the college students, the high school dreamers, the ones that haven’t given up searching for a meaning in all this, we can change. In fact we desperately long to.
I believe that my generation is full of potential rebels. My purpose is to wake them up and show them how they can live like they mean it and change the world.
So what I ask you to do today is to take one tiny action. I don’t care how old you are, whether you feel rebellious or have watched the spark die inside you. I want you to pass this article on to one person that needs to hear this message. If everyone shares it with just one person, that’s already a small mindshift revolution.
We are all potential rebels. It’s upon us to make the world we envision a reality. [Click to tweet]
