Looks like another mod edited the opening post (which is why some responses might now seem to make little sense) and removed some other posts but inadvertently moved it to the Site Support forum. Since it's definitely not a Site Support question, and actually does look more like a discussion topic than a request for advice or info I've moved it back to General Discussion, but have modified the very vague title.

Because kids these days are little shits? lol jk yeah i dont know. Iam nice to young people but i will give them shit about todays music or fashion and when they try and act like they know everything when they're so young.
Or about how kids these days lack discipline.

But i think that's all pretty normal.

Plus older prople are grumpy because we dont look or feel as good as we usd to and are tired all the time. And young people look and feel good and energetic?

But if the age difference is only a few years then i guess none of that should apply? Well, unless we're talking about a big brother or sister being mean to their younger siblings?
Or a bully in school? an older kid picking on someone younger and smaller than him?

I think it stems from the whole "experience equals knowledge" mentality that has been fixated in our overall society (and many others before us). I'm in the mentality that age doesn't mean that you know better but that you've experienced more. It's just another type of knowledge, not the be-all/end-all of knowledge or awareness or "enlightenment".

People only know to the extent of their knowledge. I find it kind of odd that those who are in my age-range are so fixated on demanding that their perspective on things (politics, society, and the likes) are the "end result" of growing up. Then again, when I was younger I was told that I'd become a "god fearing individual" by the time I was 30.

I think that ship has come and sailed. I haven't changed my views on religion despite studying it for a while.

There is truth in that statement though. Because experience is everything. Experiencing things first hand rather than talking about things that you have never experienced.
That's not to say that we stop doing that as we get older.

Experience is everything because you learn from it, you learn new skills and you learn from faliures and from making mistakes , learn from bad decisions, learn from interactions with other people, etc

I think now a days kids are more educated than kids from previous generations and it has made many of them know it alls, without having had actually experienced jack shit out there in the real world.

It's not just experience and knowledge, it's also maturity and your tastes changing. Plus (of course this varies for each individual) you tend to have more common sense when you are older.

But yes as for politics and that, whilst older people do and should have more knowledge about such things, alot of it is still opinion based. Raher than actually knowing better necessarily.

Especially in politics there's likely a bell curve in terms of experience and wisdom.

Perhaps once you reach the end of the bell curve, too much experience blinds your wisdom in terms of approaching new problems. Hence why I think term limits should exist for congress and the supreme court.

But... I digress.

This is a more simpler topic

Younger generations, even my generation, have been propagandized into believing that speaking plainly and truthfully is a bad thing, especially if its not good feedback. Only butt kissing platitudes are acceptable feedback; anything else and one is 'being mean.'


It is a culture that rewards incompetence, unfortunately.


But I disagree, when someone's wrong, you should be able to tell them they are wrong, and articulate why.

Because "older people" naturally feel that they are superior, give their age, how much they have "experienced" and that they know whats right for "youth" no matter what.
