    •  but that's just more freedom, you see (6+ / 0-)

      It means you're not tied to a desk and can be an entrepreneur and shit.  You can, I don't know, open up an old-timey barber shop or bake fancy cupcakes ... and blow it off for a concert or something.  Steady, formal employment is for drones and you don't want to be a drone, do you?  Same with employee benefits like health care and retirement instead of cold, hard cash; it's all about what you can do instead of what everyone else thinks you should do.  Well guess what, that's what the Republican Party stands for and always did, but they didn't tell you that, did they?

      Crotchety wingers love to whine about how social media has allegedly destroyed the idea of privacy in the minds of the youth.  They should be more worried about destroying the idea of freedom by managing to equate it with risk (the new generations are very risk-averse), with lack of any kind of institutional support (you say "look out for number one" and we hear "you're on your own"), and with rich people running amok and behaving in irresponsible and destructive ways.

      Domestic politics is the continuation of civil war by other means.
