Well stated from the generation born paralyzed by too many choices. Millennials can claim this paralysis as their own but it applies to all surviving generations. It’s just that the older folks weren’t raised understanding that the choices were bullshit. They are still both intimidated and fascinated by all the buttons on the dashboard and everything has grown a dashboard. Their alienation is even more tragic for us all as they desperately search for someone to tell them which button to push: “Please, God, tell me which button.” or “Those damn [insert slur] are being told which buttons work and that ain’t right!”. For these folks, who have little idea what the choices are about let alone that they are all bogus, alienation demands totalitarian rule. No more choices! And they will make sure we are fucked on our little planet. And so we will get our wish for the constraint of desperate survival in space. . .
