The gap in generations is obvious in my family. My children are far more understanding of politics than I and not at all quiet about it. I have never been too political, but I find my old age getting the better of me and I want more for my kids. I want them to have more than I did at their age. I want the crap talk of global warming/climate change to cease. I want Sean Penn to either be a politician or an actor, but not both. I want to be able to afford a new car. I want my kids to be able to afford car insurance. I want them to have good health care and to have physicians prescribe what is necessary and not what the major pharmaceutical companies push. I want mechanics and dentists to be honest. And yes, I want the grass to be greener. Is that so wrong?
I don't think the Occupiers are solving anything. It's like that alarm on your car. At first, you hear it and run out to make sure no one is stealing your car. Then pretty soon, you just glance that way and it becomes an annoyance and then? Then, you ignore it.
And all this "politics" only stirs angry passion of politicals and draws lines between people. Ears and minds close.
Would you talk politics in a business meeting? Why not? Because you would be afraid to offend and that a deal might go sour because of the offence? It most likely would, individuals take their religion and politics very seriously, "There is only one way to believe..." Could that possibly be true? When so many individual minds, how could one way be the only way?
Politics and religion have no place in business, unless your business is politics and religion.
Enjoy your weekend!
