Eat Us

July 26th, 2021

The reason that modern youth seem so supremely defiant now is because at no previous time in human history has it been so apparent that adults have no idea what the hell they are doing.

Adults used to be able to hide behind the fact that we didn’t know what stupid thoughts and dangerous ideologies went through their minds at every point throughout their day.

The internet has changed all that.

And not only has that made the young more righteous, but it has made them more right.

Lives that are not our own matter, they chant. Eat the rich, they tweet. Eat the old, they chuckle maniacally.

And to the youth, I offer my hand. To eat.

Eat us.

For countless generations, we promised you better, and you deserved better. And the only thing we delivered is the only thing adults are good at providing: disappointment.

So I say: burn it all down. If you decide to leave any of us, you only let the ones who can and will change go on. You devour the rest of it whole and don’t look back, but never forget.

And if this just sounds like an adult pleading for his life when he knows his days are numbered: you’re right.

And that is why you have to eat us. This is what we do.

You have to be the first good adults.
