Discrimination/ homophobia help noone & are based on fear & ignorance ~ which oughta be rare by now, with religion looking so LAME. Regrettably, cluelessness/ conceit are aLL too common. What happened 2 the COOL kids advocating equal rights, breaking from conformity, condemning gluttonous consumerism (eg. our parents' wasteful ways) & protesting the resulting ruin of our planet Earth?
i can understand losing respect 4 leaders/ media/ parents when your eyes are apprised of their lies; but don't be surprised if their practised "why"s are equally disguised...
Children are impressionable & follow the examples of adults ~ most of whom have already bought the B.S. & are too entrenched in paying the bills/ raising kids/ managing careers 2 bother with revision/ revolution. But that's where wild youth excels.
Without rebellion bigotry would be accepted, human rights would be unheard-of & the masses would be ruled by a despotic few. We NEED rebellious youth: 2 combat corruption, shake up the 'status quo' & remind us aLL 2 love not hate...
But how can youth be successful 'lie detectors' if they skip rebellion & get sucked straight into the system ~ a fearful one that's failing cuz it's built on B.S., grown by greed, teeming with toxicity & made with money (& therefore begging 2 be blown down by the 'big bad wolf': Father Time). Luckily, Dad'll let us stay out late ~ but we gotta respect Mother Nature, & include EVERYONE in the sustainable solution [not just straight white males, who had their chance & blew it ~ big-time).
