TOWARDS THE END OF GENERATIONS!
It is not certain that the notion of generation continues and tomorrow will be still used wisely as definitive way of structuring society.
And if generations, a concept frequently associated with that of "conflict of generations" or "intergenerational solidarity" were disappearing? And if the differences of generation faded to exist only at the mathematical difference of the age?
This is an exciting subject, so he could feed analysis on the changing world.
Is this trend real, controllable, verifiable?
In an attempt to answer these questions, it suffices to list the factors that can favor this disappearance of the generations, they are numerous and tend to confirm the report. If this were the case, as a long-term data, it would open the prospect of significant changes in social relations, a field that should be used to solve many of the difficulties experienced today by some in all slices. age.
Paradoxically, generations are deleted with increasing lifetime.
The more you save life time, healthy life time, the greater the weight for the community. Thus, young people participate more and more in the living expenses of the older ones, but also to their health loads. The longer the service life, the more the weight of pensions weighs on society. That is why the older ones should be naturally and de facto more supportive, interested in the active life of the younger, wealth producers. The younger you are, the more valuable you will be, the more benefit you will receive. This is how older people have an interest in seeing the youngest, better trained, better equipped to enter the workforce. The older ones must therefore look, see contribute to training, the transmission of experience, the ability of younger to hold a trade. This solidarity behavior, through the transmission of knowledge, or even experience, of the economic heritage blurs generations; Thus, when an entrepreneur, a craftsman, a merchant decide to cease their activity, it is essential that their corporate heritage is transmitted, that it continues.
Generations are deleted through the management of the common good
It is finally scientifically proven: the preservation of the environment contributes to the extension of the life span. It is one of the factors of decrease of certain pathologies related to the age. The older we get, the more interest we have in living in a protected environment. In this sense, the elders are close and supportive of the youngest age groups. Preserving the future of the planet promotes healthy living in the shorter term. The preservation of the environment should favor the approximation of ages, each should contribute to its level
The generations are deleted by concentrating their vision towards the future.
If the glance towards the past is divisive, according to the interest that one carries to him or its interpretation, that which relates to the future brings closer. If formerly, a retiree could after a long life of work, decide to rest, even to take advantage of the time which passes, it turns out today - again - scientifically demonstrated that to remain active, with concerns, projects, stakes, state of nature to preserve, to see prolong intellectual qualities. However, it is obvious that this contributes, even for the old to look at the future. Who do they meet on this road, in front of them: the generations that follow, of course. Looking to the future eliminates one more point of generational difference!
Generations are deleted in the digital use
Today, free and unrestricted access to information and knowledge contributes to the end of generations. If formerly, the sources of culture were selective, either the origins or the sources, this is no longer the case; A teenager, astronomy enthusiast can give full in the search for the universe. The acquisition of knowledge in his passion will be limitless, he will have access to everything, and to all, he will benefit from acquired knowledge, but will also be able to communicate with others, Elders, elders. He will be able to participate in research. His age will no longer be discriminating. Unlike rejection, he will be taken seriously by his creativity, the originality of his approaches, it will be sought. He will be stimulated and stimulated in his turn.
Generations are deleted facing the management of public money.
Older have time to do, they should promote investment, those that are undertaken for the long term. Again, this act of preparing for the future, looking for new solutions to the challenges we face will help to erase generations, because all together they have a stake in that public money generates sustainable solutions. We are back on a convergence course that erases generations.
Generations are deleted by behavior.
When you go to a concert, it is not uncommon to see, among the spectators, meet 2 or 3 generations. This to witness the production of a group that just a few years was the prerogative of the oldest. The idol of 15 / 25, the symbol of youth, teens, today is often the focal point between generations that were once divided, the sign of cleavage of old, becomes rallying.
Behaviors cross the border of age. These behaviors common to many generations blur the differences. Take an example, that of the life of a couple. More and more couples are reforming late. Marriage or cohabitation are no longer unique to younger generations. The search for the soul mate is no longer exclusive to the younger generation. Young and old are surprised to chat on their Smartphone. Léa, the little girl of 13 answering the frequency of her grandmother to talk on her IPhone will say to her, "Say, it's not just young people chatting today! ". Seeing the portrait of a man floating on his screen, she asks: "Who is it? " smiling.
If some spirits suffer, see anxious differences do not appreciate the above, they will have to find other areas of segmentation. New similarities are pointing their noses. That which differentiated the ages of old. If they are reassured, if age no longer differentiates as before, it will remain to man that differentiation which characterizes him and invariably remains the individual. And from this point of view, it remains possible to differentiate. It is up to this stage, for everyone to choose and produce their own difference. Knowing that our similarities will remain the essential characteristic of the human race. Whew !!
