The Choices of Youth

Recently, I decided to limit the influence I would allow other people and organizations to have in my life. It dawned on me that that was precisely what the youth of today are doing. This is what  businesses and churches are dealing with. Young people are willing to pay to play, but are not willing to pay and not play. In other words, they demand some decision making authority go with their financial contribution. They will not subsidize the status quo.

This is the end of the old world and the beginnimg of a whole new one.

Many organizations are really ponzi schemes, feeding off the contributions of youth to maintain the older members. What happens when the new generation just says no? I see already older people doing everything and waiting for the youth to come back and get with the program. They will be waiting until they die.

About cdhoagpurple

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.
