They say that the older you get, the more conservative you become. For me, it’s been the other way around. The older I get, and the more I learn, the more progressive I get. Like Christ, I’m bordering on revolutionary ideas. Politically speaking, this would mean that we should only prioritize the following: Progressive taxation, state-owned energy sources, universal healthcare, public schooling, progressive legislation regarding the climate crisis, a total overview of the current (failed) patent system, less work, more play and time for family life, etc., etc.
Then again, I’m pretty conservative regarding the value of the nuclear family, traditional values, faith in God, and a healthy suspicion towards new technology. The thing is that I don’t need to change others to feel content. If someone dislikes my traditional way of life, they may live their lives as they see fit. We all need a dose of rebellious actions to feel alive.
