  1. These people are so brainwashed, they live in the best country in the world and they go and protest like they are living in China or North Korea.

  2. I love our kids. ♥ They care. They really do. More than most realize. And if you are one who often echos the “Kids these days” echo, you need to get out more and sit down with some kids. BTW My definition of kid is anyone still developing. (Ages 0-26)

  3. We need to improve corrupt systems! Let’s formulate the following common political goal: Bosses have to be legally responsible towards the grassroots, especially in groups with delegated powers (police ), Parties, governments, media, banks, infrastructure … even the military). We know the good, the bad and the ugly guys best in a direct (professional) environment. To support socially committed people and downgrade charlatans, we need to have regular triple reviews by superiors, colleagues and subordinates.

  4. We have boomers running our government trying to stick to ways that were decades ago. The world is changing deal with it. I’m 36 and am proud of Gen Z

  5. Boomers and Melenials can’t accept change, that’s their biggest flaw, if we had been running the show, the world would’ve been far more advanced

  6. They’ve given the generation with nothing to live for and nothing to lose something to die for and something to gain
    We’re anxious and depressed but that doesn’t mean we won’t scream for justice and fight for equality

  7. I want to know why we are letting people who won’t be here in 30 years decide our futures. Boomers should not be able to choose the faith of Gen z and Alphas 😒

  8. As a gen Z, I can say with pride that we are willing to dance on a cop car, curse politicians, speak out against corruption, and force a change to happen. The world has to catch up, because we aren’t waiting.

  9. You better watch out, You better not cry. You better not scream and i’m telling you why. Generation z, is coming. To.Town.

  10. Y’all literally gave Gen Z, my generation, movies to watch about overthrowing the government or someone in power, or fighting for what’s right to have a brighter future, and seriously didn’t think of how that would impact us.

    Hunger Games is a sick book and movie series ngl tho XD.

  11. There is no “Gen Z activism” per se. Only billionaires financing organizations which use them as a means to their ends.
