This is honestly a subject I have no real feelings on. I know it exists, I know why it exists. But until parenting methods change, until people stop being so selfish, until we learn to start loving strangers and helping strangers, it’s not going to change.
Ageism will exist until we learn to talk to each other with respect. Respect isn’t taught anymore. It’s not earned anymore, it’s rarely given anymore. My generation has no respect for the generation it raised because we totally screwed it up. The generation we raised has no respect for our generation or the older one because we didn’t teach them to respect themselves.
Can it be stopped? Sure, but it’s going to take a lot more than a blog entry. And honestly, there are bigger problems facing our world right now.
