Although less than 48 hours have passed, I am deeply apprehensive about the term “last generation”.
Although I know it, you know it, and maybe everyone knows it; but once the word is uttered, I feel a deep sense of powerlessness.
I don’t like to educate others, even I don’t like to let my views and positions be known, I’m used to being the silent majority in society.
However, this time, I feel like I have to record something, right?
If human society is still advancing in a spiral, a certain younger generation has a chance to turn to my blog, and I don’t want him to think that I am a cowardly person who can’t even express his own opinions.
I don’t think one generation is necessarily smarter than other generations or anything, because every generation, and everyone’s situation, is completely different.
In my childhood, I experienced the honeymoon era between China and many Western powers, and I also saw the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the drastic changes in Eastern Europe. Even my teachers and teachers have experienced or participated in that event that cannot be publicly stated in the simplified Chinese Internet world.
All these mixed together, our generation seems to be more used to criticize, to criticize everything.
Some people are criticizing capitalism, and some people are also criticizing our country’s constitutional reform. In conclusion, while criticism of this matter is not often publicly expressed, it is “legitimate” most of the time.
I studied Chinese at university (because our university doesn’t have a journalism department at the moment), so I wanted to be a reporter to address the current problems. I even took law as an elective, planning to get a lawyer certificate when I get a press certificate, so that I can practice my justice within the scope of the law.
At that time, I firmly believed that my motherland would surpass the United States and Japan in the future and become a beacon of the world…
But yeah, but I didn’t think it was just a fantasy I had in college.
During the university days, we firmly believed that Guo Jingming and GFW would be nailed to the pillar of shame in history. But what I didn’t expect is that in less than ten years, Guo Jingming has become the “Chinese Dream”, and GFW has become the “Guardian of Justice” who protects our citizens from being corrupted by Western ideas.
When I was in college, I firmly believed that equality of rights for LGBTQ and other ethnic minorities would definitely be realized in our generation, but now we see that LGBTQ is still a “maggot” in the corner, and women’s rights have even become the “vanguard force of the West to subvert our country.” “.
In the university days, although democracy and freedom were not the consensus of everyone, they were not reduced to such words as “democratic” and “corpse oil” that needed to be humiliated.
I don’t want to be the “last generation” because all children deserve a better future and a more hopeful world.
