Young hipster punches grandad squarely between the eyes

by Nige

Look out over 65s, for future generations. It seems your input towards democracy may not be welcome.

“Old age is a time to relax. You deserve a rest at 70. Let the young people who live for the future mould that future.”

Hang on. Someone’s saying something nice about someone. The knife must be ready to go into their back.

“You can’t blame the elderly for why they vote. We all vote selfishly. But it becomes unfair when the demographics shift so far that young voters are drowned out. At 65 a New Zealander has been voting for 47 years, surely that’s enough time to get your point across.”

“If you’re under 50, why the hell are you paying for Super you will never get yourself? Why aren’t we increasing the age of retirement? Why is there no means testing on pensions? Why is there no movement on our property issues? Simple. There’s lots of old people, they love to vote and backing changes they don’t like is electoral suicide.”

The elderly in the future will be considered an expense by unfeeling youth.

“Many of these changes are being stalled because politicians must appease baby boomers to survive.”

Yes. So, you’re clearly pushing an agenda. This is current politics dressed up as future democracy.

“Lumped for life with a decision largely made by pensioners. Older voters specialise in looking back instead of forward. So why should those on their way out decide a future they won’t be around to see?”

What this hip young dude fails to recognise in all his worldly wisdom and experience is that…well….he is inexperienced. They say that if you fail to learn from your mistakes then you are destined to repeat them. Who better to learn from than those who have lived through it?

It’s fearful stuff. Once we go down this path the old will end up the discarded.

I’m not talking about those of that age now. I’m talking about beyond my generation.

Notice how suddenly there is swearing accepted all over the radio and TV? Notice how every show on TV is related to murder in some way? When is it going to end? Where are the censors? I watched The Block last night and after it ended… BOOM …within one minute there was a murder and an f word. Generations are being desensitised and their standards lowered. To me, there’s no doubt about it.

Satire or not, a newspaper has put it up for their own over 65s to read.

This is how it starts – inch by inch.
