What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids.
GIVE. THEM. HELL.
I’ve seen this going around a lot. Here’s the thing: yes, our generation has incredible potential. But reblogging this picture is not enough. You need to take a stand and get involved. Find your cause. Write your rep. Tell your friends. Vote in every election.
We may seem politically apathetic, but as this picture shows, we aren’t. We Occupied, we Walked for Choice, and we sought justice for Trayvon. We created Change.org and Facebook and Twitter, which have changed the face of corporate responsibility and backlash. You have the power to do so much just from your computer. Don’t just reblog this image. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, KIDS.
Yours in revolution,
