This is making the rounds...

"We're churning out a generation of poorly educated people with no skill, no ambition, no guidance, and no realistic expectations of what it means to go to work." Mike Rowe "Dirty Jobs"

No skill, because none are required and those jobs that do the prerequisites are too high for most people. Most skilled jobs have been sent offshore and those left over go to machines/computers/robots and the few that need skilled people have too many people chasing too few jobs. No ambition, because the new generation has seen that only a few truly make it and most people's dreams are crashed on the rocks of life, to what end? At the end of the game the pawn and the king go in the same box. We have worked hard only to die taking nothing with us and leaving everything behind. No guidance, because they're not stupid. Cheating parents, lying politicians and cutthroat fat cats, lawyers everywhere, journalism dead, religious zealots, constant war and the threat of wars, a dying used up world, who in their right mind would want guidance from us? 'No realistic expectations of what it means to go to work?' The 'Protestant work ethic' is just another means of 'legal' indentured servitude created by business and their government servants to keep us bound to the bank and the 9 to 5 economy. Mortgage means 'death-pledge' and it is no different being chattel to a feudalistic lord as it is to owe to a credit institution. The rich get richer and richer and richer. This generation is taking a hard look at our world and perhaps is just saying "thanks, but no thanks, there is nothing in it for me." If so, good on them.
