When I was a kid, I thought my older relatives were stupid because they didn't know the names of all my Star Wars action figures, like Greedo and Hammerhead.

Now I am older and I don't know any of the Star Wars action figures my nieces and nephews are playing with.

Star Wars action figures, like...Hammerhead

Excuse me, his name is Momaw Nadon, not the "Hammerhead" name given to his action figure by Kenner Products.

All this information was learned in the last 5 minutes, when I failed to recognize the name myselfHan shot first, Greedo died like a wimpApparently, you can stack superscript and subscript. Neat.

Apologies for this 20-something intruding in v/oldgeezerhangout, but this post made it to the front page of v/all, so I wanted to respond:

There are smart kids and there are dumb kids, just as there always have been.

The biggest difference this time? The dumb kids this time around found out how to shout their ideas into a megaphone that could be heard around the entire world, and also have been easily misled by the globalist elites trying to steer the world into just enough crises for them to easily take over.

Thankfully, that same megaphone is not fully controlled by those elites, we are able to spread our counter message to the world, and the world is waking up to this new threat.

Common core is offensively stupid propaganda dispersed to our children. It is deliberately constructed to make it so parents cannot help their children with homework--thus making all kids on par with the kids that don't have parents that can help them at home. In this way of interfering with the education system in early, formative years, it's helpful for making children not actually bring up the things they are learning in school to their parents. Educating them to not really talk to their parents about homework, and the work they do in school. Conditioning them to normalize not really socializing with their parents much in that capacity.

That way, when little Suzy comes home from elementary school with a garbage math program designed so you can't help her or understand it, because it's so fucking retarded no one would use logic in that backwards way, it's conditioning the parents to not ask either. Sooner or later you forget to question, and they certainly forget to tell, and that's where the real education can get started.

There are alot of arguments here that essentially saying "grownups have always felt that way" which is essentially true. However, I think anyone rational would admit that there have been waves of generations that embrace idiotic ideals that it takes generations to recover from. I don't care what anyone says, I will always see the kids that fought in World War II as heroes, and the ones that fought in Vietnam as victims. (This, I would argue, shows that an older generation can be fucking retards too.) Right now the youth culture is embracing the ideas of "identity politics" and it's fucking insane. We all came up and had ridiculous youth fashions and embraced ideas that we later discarded, but the rabid, angry, violent and honestly, reality denying views that the "progressive" youth are clinging to boggles the mind. A generation of youths embracing weird haircuts and gaudy clothes is not the same as insisting that you are dragon-kin, that rape doesn't require a rapist or that the Ghostbuster's remake was good.

I definitely feel that kids today are retarded, they do have a touch of the more "in touch" mentality that kids should have (and did have when I was young in comparison to adults). But if kids nowadays want my respect, they'll have to earn it.

I got there in my early thirties. I had a period of being obliviousness towards them before that. Now I hate anyone from mid teens to early 20s. I was them at that age too. I just now understand why I got treated the way I did.
