Having lived most of my adult life here in Asia, and having been here in Myanmar for the last 7 years – I rarely see and I avoid dealing with occidentals.
However, sometimes I travel to other countries, and some times I have to deal with them here.
The difference, in terms of quality between the people I see these days – particularly millennials, and even my grandparent’s generation is shocking.
Raised by your mothers to be systemized, sissified, self-indulgent materialists and fashionistas with six-pack abs.
Unable to express yourself outside of cliche’ memes.
Occupying the safest, most developed, most privileged, most equitable and just (although not perfect) society that has ever existed in human history but taking it for granted because you’ve never had to sacrifice anything to gain respect, security or convenience.
Many people would attribute these changes to overall progress and development in society.
