To The Daily Sun,
I sit here looking out my windows, enjoying the sunshine, pondering the role of older people in our society. It appears that our society has shown that the baby boomers, which I am proudly a member of, are truly considered a dinosaur class that is in need of being sent to the nether side of our society to await the arrival of the King of Hades, while forcing the Millennials to take the dominant role in our society, even if they are unwilling and unwanting of this role.
The Millennials and their non-desire to become the major driving force of our society and its culture though are a direct result of the baby boomers with their diverse and risk-taking behaviors created a social group of non-caring, self-centered and confused generation.
The elder class is silently being pushed to the side by several of our political candidates and representatives, locally (Greg Hill) and nationally (Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump) in order to create a base of votes consisting mainly of the Millennials. They have utilized these new voters to feed their own self-serving agendas, self-inflated egos, and false sense of self-importance.
The Millennials have been chosen by these individuals as a predator chooses its prey. The elderly can see through their thinly veiled facade due to their greater experience and independence of thought, whereas the Millennials have limited interest in expressing their independent thinking skills making them the perfect prey for these needy predators.
These predators have presented themselves as the perfect "wolves in a sheep skin" to the communities they purport to care for and will fairly, objectively, represent. They are indifferent to the needs of their community and have shown a strong desire to meet their own needs to their self-perceived power and importance within the community even if these needs are detrimental to the basic life of the average citizen.
Baby boomers and Millennials need to rise up and show these predators that we will no longer be prey for these predators. We need to unite and stop this predation by these self-inflated and self-important political braggarts who have mastered the art of deception and disengagement. We need to take back our political system and allow all to receive the benefits and protections of our society.
