The way that they're wanting everything for free in this society and not having to work for anything no I have no faith in them in the way that they're voting for the Democrats that give free stuff away. Our country is going to be a Third World country in no time. I have no faith in them whatsoever.

pokemon go just encourages kids to be healthier. They did the same thing a few years ago but not on the same scale.

Instead of an app it was a thing called a pokewalker which was a pedometer that connects with the Nintendo DS and the pokemon game.

You could level your pokemon and catch new ones using it then transfer them to your game. It encouraged walking around to obtain new items that could be helpful to the player.

Eh.

Especially with this current election cycle, there's way too much of an "us vs. them" mentality when we should be working together.

I think those of us that have children and have by example instilled values, a moral compass, tolerance, compassion mixed in with a bit of stubbornness, desire to protect the weaker and the will to succeed morally, physically, and monetarily set the stage for the success of the new generation.

As a part of this next generation. I can say that the future doesn't look too good as far as politics goes. The entitlement and pussyfooting I see among my peers is astounding. I have never believed in political correctness and never will, yet if you try to talk to a good majority of us without using a euphemism every few words they get up in arms about how there's 50+ genders and we should approve (not accept, approve) of every single one of them, or how

The borders should be completely open because illegal immigrants help our economy. The only good thing that may come of this generation is that with the complete godlessness of this generation (they all seem to believe that religion should be kept completely to one's private life), there should be less fearmongering about valid science and we may actually be able to use science as opposed to restricting it at every turn (widespread use of gmos, genetical modification to eradicate hereditary diseases, more funding for NASA). But other than that, the future looks pretty bleak if my generation of entitled, pussyfooting sheeple are going to be in charge.

Everybody says that the next generation is going to be our worst every single generation. It is because each new generation has a different view of the world since it has been changed by the last. If we brought someone from 200 years ago to now and showed them a 10, 30, 50, and 70 year old they would think each one is a savage (or at least the 1800s equivalent to a walking Atlantic City). This is because each generation is different from its last and people fear the fact that children will eventually change the world. If the world accepted each generation is different we could work to have lasting project to build society to its best no matter which generation is here.

So many of them are falling in love with Socialism, which has failed nations all over the world.

Here's why I disagree with your thought process:
So much fear is placed upon the possibility of "freeloaders," people who will take all the benefits they can without contributing anything. Now obviously there's a fair possibility that some of those people pop up but i do believe the vast majority will put free education to good use and make contributions that outweigh the "freeloaders." I just don't see it as a large enough threat to be scared of and if we find things aren't working we can always be more strict or becoming more of a meritocracy in some respects. (ex. Only free college for 30 credits and to keep it free you maintain a certain GPA)

I agree mikey, the only successful religious nations were the USA, Israel, England, and possibly a few others. India, Sudan, and so many other Muslim countries are total failures. And I don't know where this lame "cult of personality" excuse came from. The fact is communism kills and it is rooted in secularism and humanism. Mr. Mao, for example, killed 40 million with his "programs." The dictators of many of these nations promoted atheism, evolution, and socialism and then used these as an excuse to purge entire populations. If you believe the opposite, then the schools did a good job with indoctrinating you guys.

I just comment on another poll about how I see very little racism the diverse high school I teach at. I think this generation could make racism a thing of past, if only we elders would let them, instead of actively trying to instill it in them.

I think the next generation will have more on their plate that the previous. Just as my generation had more than the previous. Technology updates creates an infrastructure of near-immediate communication and access to tools we have never thought of. We are humans, we adapt to what we have. We are tool builders since he beginning and that's what we will always do. I think it's somewhat unfair to throw the next generation out of the window when they will be paying for the previous generations debts.

I have faith in my generation. I went to school and eventually college where everyone was kind and open to hearing others opinions. The hard work ethic is also there. The difference is attitude. We know we have to work and we don't want to but we still put effort into it because the job needs to get done. There's some disillusionment here and there. Mostly because of college loans and deep seated beliefs that Washington is nothing more than a corrupt haven where everyone there is just trying to enrich themselves. It knocks the wind out of you when you see just how much in loans you're taking out. It's enough to preoccupy anyone. The corruption in politics makes some wonder what the point is in voting. They don't think their vote matters. The people I've been around know that we have to vote so that's what they'll do. My one friend is driving home on Election Day to vote while the others are filing absentee ballots.

We've also had talks about politics. The Bernie and Hillary people were able to understand each other's sides and remained friends. The very few trump supporters (and this was before trump went off the deep end) were able to articulate why they going to support him better then trump himself. I don't know if they're still supporting him after the primaries. I know a few were turned off by the convention. Honestly the ones that are the most disillusioned are the ones on tumblr all day where they see irrelevant controversies and become SJW for it. It's a bubble honestly. Anyway, with all that being said I have faith in my generation. I also do recognize that my "experiences" sound too good to be true. That they're the exception rather than the rule. I chose though to beeline that they're the rule rather than the exception. 😁

I sure do. Each generation is more liberal than the last. Gives me hope.

Not with all this SJW PC hippy crap that keeps getting worse and worse. We raised a bunch of puss-pants push overs with no backbone and who are ashamed of being white. Also if there not white then they feel entitled to anything and everything including openly bragging about being a illegal and taking scholarships from citizens and attacking police.

This is kind of an old man test. People who answer "no" are cynical old men, and the ones who answer "yes" aren't.

I'm not that old.

With PC culture on the rise it's reasonable to believe that the next gen is screwed

Yes. Always. Each generation grows in knowledge and understanding with the lessons learned from the past generations.

You'd think so but this new generation seems to ignore history's past lessons.

I agree with everything except the lessons learned. Human experience seems to prove the opposite.

We have short memories as a species. I'm not sure that's a bad thing, it allows us to move on from conflicts, but we do tend to repeat the same mistakes over time.
