if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future
because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive
our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.
#true #all of this #but also #we dream about revolution #about changing things #fighting against the dystopian people in power #and taking back our rights #our lives #our future #and that is powerful as hell #because no #we don’t romanticize the future if we can avoid it #but we want to imagine that even if everything turns to fucking shit #and people are being terrorized #(which they are i know) #someday #someone #will stand up and fight against it #so sure we’re pretty damn pessimistic #and we’re terrified #but we’re also hopeful #even if we don’t really believe in the people before us #or even in ourselves #we believe in those who will come after us #and that’s pretty great #and also i don’t know where this came from #terribly sorry #dystopian future visions #millenials (via domfeyrac)
