When the past doesn’t guarantee the future.
This is the twelfth in a series of posts reflecting on the importance of our actions and what we do to contribute to something, and ideally, something greater. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
I recently had an exchange with mostly young people, mainly from Generation Z, and I can confirm that they’re worried about the future. But what generation wasn’t? I would say that this generation has the anxiety of previous generations on its shoulders. It’s clear that for generations X and Y, the future is just as uncertain and their future depends on the previous generation. I would say that it is mainly the anxiety of Generation X. Gen X’s fear of abandonment has never been so strong, abandoned by the boomers, and this situation is echoed by Generation Z, who have the power to break the intergenerational contract. Boomers and Gen-Xers, trapped in their toxic relationship, sidelined by a generation that rejects this poison with no remorse. Finally, Generation Y has the power to catalyze this movement in order to offer future generations a more than perfect world, a world that is entirely theirs.
If we go back a bit, this anxiety is the source, in my opinion, of hyper-movement. Far from being a cure, hyper-movement is rather a drug, a demonstration of a generation’s inability to deal with its own demons, preferring instead to put its mind to sleep so as not to think about it. Quite sad.
