Understood Isaac. But this is easier said than done. The older generation by default are gatekeepers, advisers and stewards. They hold the keys to the doors we wish to enter. They take up most of the space we want to partake in. There is also this cultural reverence factor that cannot be overlooked.

We are inherently better than them by the sheer novelty of our youth and they should know this, but in order for them to remain in power and to stay relevant they hinder us. They are firmly implanted in our institutions so this makes the kind of change you speak of quite arduous.

If we stop gravitating towards identity politics and start intersecting more I could see us truly moving beyond the limitations that they have either impressed upon or have been imposed on us.
