matrixmann: (Thinking)
What would somebody say who died 10 years ago about the fuss that takes place today?
In politics as well as society as well as technology - how things in general developed during the last decade?
Would he think "the better that I have died, that's even worse than when I was still alive"?
Or would he say "I should have stayed, just to try to make a change in all these things"?
What about somebody who killed himself?
Would he be happy about his deed?
Would he scream in horror how the world has become, compared to 10 years ago?
What would his words be about Facebook, about streaming, about the current state the world is in - the economical crisis, the West's fight with Russia, the war in Syria, Libya, newly grown information sources that didn't exist back then?
Also, what would he say about culture, about current trends? About the rise of German Schlager, the dropping in the background of Hiphop, the rise of softened Electro House and the current remake mania in Hollywood?
What would he say if he heard that now it's a trend for the lost youth to travel to the Middle East and play "Call Of Duty" for real - voluntarily?

Sometimes it would be better if someone was alive again who didn't follow all these developments, just to give you a more distanced opinion, free from the political correctness of today, free from the frames and shapes which society and public likes to think in during current times.
Having been gone opens a door to potentially give you new ideas. Ideas you wouldn't have if you talked to somebody who's a child of his time and narrow-minded as the current episode is.
Too long ago may become a problem as the changes over 20 and 30 years or more are too huge for someone to comprehend in a small amount of time. There would be the danger of becoming overwhelmed by impressions.
Many things changed in a longer episode of time.

But even during the last 10 years, you have some things which totally took a major development, while you have others where you would say "business as usual". Nothing has changed.
The stupification of mankind hasn't stopped, quite the opposite, it has increased. Through the invention of smartphones and social media shifting from a text-based to a photo- and video-based issue. Bullying and mobbing hasn't vanished from the face of the earth, its results only have become quieter and no-one talks about it anymore loudly. Children themselves don't take a gun into their hands anymore nessecarily to make it known.
Adults don't have more time for their offspring, they even whip themselves some more and force themselves onto their place of work.
Poverty didn't disappear. And the rich have even grown richer than they used to be.
The only thing that maybe has become different, making an interesting change in the pack of cards, that keeping secrets has become more critical for the states. Not only is it more of an importance for them to survive than before, but also the means to do it need to scatter because it is more likely that somebody might get something out and show it to the public. Not all people entrusted with confidential information still agree on or are convinced of keeping their secrets anymore.
Also, there has grown an echo chamber which specialized in picking these things up and spread it as their own propaganda, just like you're used to it from the notorious usual suspects.
This changes the game of what to believe and what not to believe.

Someone who died earlier and was sick of this system might find its joy with the new circumstances...

Erinnert sich noch jemand daran wie es gegen Ende der 90er der größte Zeitvertreib auf dem PC war, Moorhühner zu schießen?

Somebody remembers still how, at the end of the 90s, it was the biggest time killer on the PC to shoot up grouses?

Und wieder läutet der Tag der dummen Fragen. "Ask a Stupid Question Day" auch in Übersee genannt.

Eine dumme Frage: Wenn ein Vater und sein Sohn jeweils mit der gleichen Frau geschlafen haben, und sie beiden jeweils ein Kind beschert, in welchem Verwandtschaftsverhältnis stehen dann die beiden Kinder zueinander?

These days' youth gets the music it deserves. Uninspired, overly happy twenty-four seven, acting like the world's only a party, thinking there are no obstacles to come in the future - that's something only the rotten meat generation over thirty talks about -, and it's as lame to make you fall asleep - speed is an alien concept to it. While the musicians still manage to come up with a catchy tune, as much as that they're free from talent to deliver ambitious lyrics and an ordinary rhyme. So in the end, what they leave behind is an exceedingly kitschy tune with no message, nothing to dream about and nothing more of than what seems to be one of the negative kinds of ecstasy: The world is colored in rose, all is sunshine and happiness forever and for always, darkness is something that doesn't exist, not even in sound and it better shouldn't. Darkness is a cancer that should be erased ("it fucks up the good mood").

In that point, this youth gets the soundtrack that it deserves and where it's going to end at, one will see.

"Egoshooting" als ein anderer Begriff für "Selfies machen" - hoffentlich verwechselt das nicht mal jemand bei einer Verabredung mit einem Spielabend Counterstrike...

"Junior, was willst du mal werden, wenn du groß bist?"

"Polizist! Dann kann ich auch mal die Asozialen einsperren!"

Lützenkirchen's "3 Tage wach" - didn't hear that for a long time. But maybe that's just a coincidence just as listening by the half-open window to which music a car of youngsters plays outside in the parking lot and discovering it's Alex Christensen's homage to the "Sweetest ass in the world" (Original: Du hast den schönsten Arsch in der Welt).
One wonders where do youngsters get to know this trash... And why other stuff completely seems to pass them by.
Next time they come around the corner with "Nein, Mann!" by Laserkraft 3D.

Wie es heißt, ist heute der Tag der dummen Fragen. "Ask a Stupid Question Day" auch in Übersee genannt.

Eine dumme Frage: Was macht eigentlich Robert T-Online heute?

The next episode in the category "youth is as fucked up and has as much bad taste as the previous generation":

When the eldest school kids, about 14 to 16 years old, of a nearby 10-classes-school meet in their niche before the building, start to entertain the whole surrounding area with their music and among it you recognize some kind of newer, 2015-updated-like version of Eiffel 65's "Blue".
