As someone from the next generation, I would like to say we do care, and we are not very happy about it.  It often feels to us like there is nothing that can be done...especially when all media outlets are designed to keep us misinformed.  I must say, I am more impressed day by day as people are really starting to resist the BS coming from Washington and the boob tube and are starting to do something about it...I very strongly believe this will accelarate strongly as the crisis becomes more evident to everyone...a stock market crash may not be enough...it may be the day the govt's credit card is denied.

 The biggest sign of hope I see is people really starting to understand that central banking is really just a big criminal cabal designed to steal money from the public and give to the few financial elites...Ron Paul, C4L, Mises Inst have really hit home with young people on this one...me included.

I have a lot hope for the Digital Generation........

they will finally wake up.....I am confident of that.........

But listening to the crap coming from Generation Debt like things are getting better as we put the next generation into even more debt is getting a bit old......really old.

but it will come to an end.......

the pancake eaters, primate monkey see monkey do homebuilders, special needs teachers thinking they are entitled to a pension based on this generation paying back a debt loand that they can't pay, doctors making ridiculous incomes based on borrowed money medicare/aid payments....

yet our current students are being forced to borrow insane amounts of money to get a college degree with dim prospects for a decent job......

WILL SOON COME TO AN END.....

Alstrymous is representing the Digital Generation as Generation Debtors are simply too pathetic and wrapped up in themselves to know any better.....

WELCOME TO THE DIGITAL AGE.....

Dow, and if we do question our leaders and the house of cards, we are labeled racists and bigots ... I think people are getting tired of being 'told' who they are and what they believe.

On a separate note, in NJ, our new governor, Chris Christie, is cracking down on public employees w/ 2 govt jobs .. for example, someone who retired on disability and then gets another job/salary and still collect his disability ... he's also cracking down on other loopholes ... best and most logical news I've heard from a politician in so long ....... and yet he's taking heat for this .. someone has to put a backstop on the insanity and attempt to clean up this mess ...

Also, from a former Marine's perspective .. here's an amazing video about how our freedoms have been eroding ... there is no profanity in this video, but for some reason you have to be 18 to view it .... just passion that's all ... passion .. that's what we need right now

 BTW .... Alstry and Dow, you guys are awesome today +1,000 ... I'm ready to cry when I think of the storm that is gathering around us .. our children's future is so unclear ...

THERE IS NO HOPE FOR GENERATION DEBT WITH HEADLINES LIKE THIS......

Stocks Rise After Drop in Jobless Claims

450,000 NEW people applied for unemployment THIS WEEK....

and very few are hiring........as many are laying off.......

imagine a headline that country cheers because only 450,000 died in war this week, vs 470,000 last week......pretty soon, there will be nobody left and the numbers must go down....

Oh...people care.  Matt Taibbi writes about all of the stuff you're writing about in Rolling Stone Magazine--but he just doesn't repeat it EVERY SINGLE DAY. 

No one has the time you seem to have to "care".  If you care so much, why don't you start a grass roots organization that can actually affect change, rather than blab about it on Motley Fool?  Seriously, what are YOU doing to not doom this generation?

Alstry,

As annoying as you are.  you serve a purpose.  keep up the good work.  Seriously, in my recent rant against a bull it becomes clear to me that all opinions matter and serve as a check and balance against each other.

FB,

One day the lightbulb will turn on in your head....you are a decent analyst.....but what is at play is far above basic investment analysis......

my guess right now the only option left is war....as mathematically no one in the world can pay back their debt without some corrupt process of screwing one party or another....

if I am right....it will be a war that impacts EVERY nation on earth.....and when its over, I doubt any nation will ever go to war again AGAINST EACH OTHER.......

good luck with homebuilding........

It is called the normalcy bias...people in dangerous/awful situations often refuse to believe what they are seeing and either freeze up or just go about their normal task...even if it results in death (physically or economically)

It is unbelieveably difficult to convince people that things aren't alright, and aren't going to magically fix themselves.  Especially the baby boomers...people just brush off anything that is uncomfortable.  I know this firsthand, it took me many months of intense research to finally undertand the true reality around us.  Looking back there were plenty of people warning, but I (just like most ppl do know) completely ignored the warnings b/c on the surface everything seems fine.  People are so used to seeing record debt figures in every aspect of their lives that it has become meaningless to them...they cannot understand that it hasn't always been that way and CANNOT continue to be that way.

Typical lawyer...way to circumvent my question with posting some link to a random shooting story.  You still never answered my question...WHAT are YOU doing??  If blogging daily on the Motley Fool is your answer...than that's a laughable waste of time.

Soowhat,  Look at answer #11 .. I'm sure Alstry played a part in Dow's 'awakening' ... getting people prepared mentally is a huge help!  We're all moths fluttering around the light here .. we don't really want to look, but as Dow so eloquently stated, we are all at different stages of "undertand the true reality around us," readying ourselves for the what's on the horizon.

Alstry: Neither a wolf or a sheep.

However, this very much "is" a situation of "two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner".

For those who have ears to ear.

Love what you say Dow3000, and am in total agreement with you, .......and further, i would say the current financial system is crumbling because it just not feasable,..... financially, ..politically and even further removed socially.

It is anti-social, anti-political, "and", anti-financial being a debt based system and not a finance based system at all.

In fact it is not even a system....there is nothing systematic about it!!

"Three strikes and your out".. situation.

Thanks for what you say Dow3000.
