Ageism is probably the only form of discrimination that makes some sense, at least right now.

People who were born 2 and 3 generations ago quite often come with a bunch of phobic, bigoted garbage. They more often than not feel entitled in the sense that they must be wiser and smarter than younger people, even though wisdom or smarts are not something you automatically gain when you reach the brain atrophy stage of your life. Old people quite often live without care for the future generations because they won't be around anyway, and vote accordingly. And, although nobody can blame them for being less productive, they don't put any effort to be useful past their productive parts of their life because of the entitlement that comes with age.

No, it's a great idea. We get to increase the gdp by selling weapons and we get some brats killed by the police, sounds like win-win to me. ;)

This sounds like someone older than you wronged you in some perceived way and so to blow off steam you came here to talk about how you want to send a platoon of child soldiers to threaten them for the perceive slight. Am I not far off?

What actually is this?

So I'm amused how this started with OP being annoyed at people for the terrible crime of living to the age of 40 years, and then it descended into how OP wants children to have firearms.
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

The mass of anti millennial bullshit is ageism. My cousin once said that we are the least patriotic generation ever. I told her to go to the VA and tell the Iraq and Afghan war vets that. Millenials are called lazy while working 50-60 hour weeks every week. We are called spoiled while our minimum wage is effectively half of what it was in 1968. We are called stupid with the highest number of degrees per capita. Everyone is upset we didn't buy houses and get married immediatly after the great recession.

We catch this shit from the generation who spit on Vietnam veterans. From the generation who invented being a hippy. From the generation was handed a living wage at every job. from the generation who dropped out. From the generation who caused the great recession. Gen X can talk shit (and that's all it is) but the Boomers need to STFU.

The poor don't hate the rich, they hate those who masquerade inherited wealth as hard work.

Democracy is a tyranny of the majority. All other forms of government are tyrannies by a minority.

Ageism is mostly used by irresponsible teens/pre-teens who believe they should have the same rights and responsibilities as adults despite being nowhere near as mature so fuck "combating" it.

The voice of reason.
I totally agree, I was more mature then most in my teen years but I knew my boundaries too as much as I hate to say it a large portion of the current teen generation have no real idea of the world.
