i wish the response to a prominent young person not knowing about culture from literal multiple decades before they were born was, like

"let's spend the day sharing the music we want young people to know about"

instead of it all being focused on old idiots being angry assholes

to be clear, I don't mean "don't be angry," I mean

the response to this stuff is so often just people being mean and empty and hollow

Literally: Find a way to engage with the world that is BETTER than that.

@Alexis seriously though you’re right but i don’t think people are (in aggregate) better than a giant writhing ragesnark monster. cultural change is either hard, uphill, grassroots and small, or dictated to us enmasse by corporations and psychologists crafting messages to make us all as neurotic and insecure as possible.

@zensaiyuki Honestly, I think you're probably right, but I also think I'm gonna try to push this particular boulder up the hill for the rest of my life, even though I know it'll probably just roll back down again and again.

@Alexis if there weren’t dominant narratives about shitty ungrateful youngsters being an existential threat, then maybe
