Considering the way people perceive a teenager, I haven’t been one (partially temperament, and partially circumstances). However, it would be bold to claim that I didn’t have teenage flings or tendencies. That’s why I consider myself to be eligible to talk of what it’s like to think like a person in adolescence. So I’m going to write about what exactly is the problem with society and traditions. Why do young people always blame society when things end up badly with them or with others? And why does this usually change as they grow up?

The problem is deep and complex and beyond my knowledge. However, I’m attempting to get as close as possible with the tools I have. The youth is known to be the force of change. They are new people with unexhausted energy and a flammable enthusiasm, which could easily turn into resentment. Besides, they (myself included) are in love with abstract ideas, which is something I learned from Dostoevsky and came as an eye-opener. The young, as the adult, notice things that are wrong in the way society functions, which is something any reasonable person would figure out pretty quickly.

Nevertheless, the young assume they’re not a part of the problem. This is because they still haven’t realized the wicked part of them that’s contributing to the nonsense they see. They’re filled with resentment because of their helplessness in the face of what they perceive as outdated, boring lifestyles, which is a reasonable conclusion since they still don’t actually know the true meaning of commitment and responsibility. They hear about freedom and equality, but they really don’t understand the reality and its inherent limitations. Any constraints on their dangerous, wild recklessness is a declaration of war on their abstract, Utopian freedom. When it comes to their imagination and thinking, they’re more capable than adults yet they don’t know how to put any of that into practice because of their minute knowledge of the dynamics of the society.

As teenagers grow up, they become more aware of their limitations. They realize that the ultimate revolution that would eliminate all the ‘ancient’ practices, is merely a product of the naivety of youth. Suddenly, some traditions make sense and, to be fair, some other practices remain nonsensical to them. Here comes the real change; when the new generation carries forward some traditions and leaves others. This is just how it works; change is inevitable. And one of the jobs of adults is the management of that change; not willful blindness that ignores the rush of fresh blood into the society as if it’s a temporary increase in blood pressure that would soon normalize. Frankly, when they do that, the fresh blood doesn’t simply meld in; it turns into foul blood that intoxicate the society slowly and silently. In schools and in homes, the young need to be taught how to focus their energetic enthusiasm on what can actually be changed; not towards submissiveness to whatever the adults see is appropriate.  

To drive my point home, at a young age, people are nothing and everything at the same time. They tend to be annoying because they think they have answers to every question (abstract ideas). There is arrogance and tremendous ignorance which, in turn, leads them to point fingers all the time. As long as we’re not in our fake utopia, I don’t believe this problem will disappear. But we can somehow reduce the friction.

I hope the amount of information I packed into the first panel would please any fans of Beverly Hills 90210 out there.

I was particularly happy with The Blaze headline which’ll mean nothing to folks who have never seen the show.
