Two things that don't get talked about enough in the media: 1) South Korea had 2M+ person protests lasting 6 months to oust their President after she got caught involved in occult activity and corruption. 2) Iceland had protests in 2009 after the banking crisis that resulted in a new constitution.

job interview with a millennial by HeyImSancho in SundogsPlace

Lol as imagined by a baby boomer.
In reality, the interviewer is 30 minutes late, unprepared, and discards you based on the fact he has 200 other applicants and one of them went to his Alma Mater. Yet never has the dignity to send you a formal rejection letter. The current job hiring market is a joke, and blaming it on young people is ridiculous tbh.
Most baby boomers got hired without a related college education and got to keep the same job for 40 years. Luxuries younger people can't even imagine in today's hiring world. This is basically blaming the victim as far as I see it. Baby boomers stroking their ego about how great they are, when they were the ones who created this world that we're all currently suffering from!
That said, this generational warfare nonsense (which the original post helps reinforce) is just another divide and conquer tactic, when the real battle is the norms of corporate culture vs a populace that is tired of being exploited from birth for little personal gain.

And I think it also promotes the idea that we should wait for heros to save us, rather than doing the work to improve the world ourselves.
It also promotes the idea you need fantastical superpowers to be able to accomplish important things, which is disempowering to an average person.

"If banks can borrow money from the federal reserve at 3%, why cant we? Why do we have to go through a money changer to get access to capital? In all honesty for profit banking should be outlawed like for profit hospitals were before Nixon. Usury is the problem in our society. Not capitalism." by Orangutan in politics

I agree. Usury is the main cause of debt slavery, because the high rates makes the debts almost impossible to repay.
Debt can be used to help grow societies, but not when they charge you 15% for it, of which you must pay the interest first before the principal is touched, and furthermore wages never go up.
If all debt was suddenly forgiven once, it would be one of the greatest gifts to humanity we could imagine. Think of all the stress it would relieve.

Usury used to be illegal among Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
The Jews were the first to break this commandment, with the stipulation that interest could be charged on loans to goyim (non-jews).
This ability to lend and circumvent the religious laws, led to this whole trend of Jewish bankers lending to Christian kings and queens, which made the bankers fantastically wealthy because they basically had a monopoly.
Later Christians basically got rid of this law, so they can lend at interest. And Usury is defined originally as ANY interest, not just excessive interest.
Last Muslims have just started to get rid of this law. But they still have a very stringent finance system compared to the west, and have different ways of making money on lending money rather than interest, but in effect it's the same: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_banking_and_finance
This progression of usury explains a lot of world history, imo.

Your spelling and grammar make your sentences hard to read. Let me offer some English tips to help you out, if you don't mind.
After every punctuation there is a space. So a space goes after a comma or period, or a close parenthesis.
Ellipses (the "...") are always 3 dots, not 2 or 5. The first letter of a sentence is always capitalized.
Hope that helps. Your ideas will get a lot more readership if they're easy to read!
On your question, I think some issues have no absolute right or wrong. That's the entire purpose of reasonable debate, which is the point of saidit. So I wouldn't worry about what the group thinks too much.
