This was on Facebook from a 26-year-old MBA candidate.

          Title: My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us!

          I'm sitting in a coffee shop. Scrolling through my news feed. I see presidential candidates calling for policies to "fix" the so-called injustices of capitalism.

          But, I see people talking freely, working on their MacBooks, ordering the food they get in an instant, driving nice cars and it dawned on me. We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we've become completely blind to it.

          Vehicles, fast food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose are so ingrained in our American way of life we don't give them a second thought.

          In the United States, our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty-One Times!!!
          Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are un-appreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful.

          Our un-appreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies within my generation continues to grow.

          Recently, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, the millennial generation came of age and never saw American prosperity."

          "NEVER SAW AMERICAN PROSPERITY!" Let that sink in!

          When I read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I've ever heard in my 26 years on this earth. (But) Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided.

          My 26-year-old poster continued saying: My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity.

          With all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can see even sitting in a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity?

          We have people who are dying to get into our country. People that are really destitute and truly impoverished.

          Yet, we have a young generation convinced they've never seen prosperity.

          The answer is this...My generation has ONLY seen prosperity.    WE HAVE NO CONTRAST!

          We didn't live in the great depression or live through two world wars, the Korean War, The Vietnam War, nor did WE see the rise and fall of socialism and communism.

          We don't know what it's like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones. We don't have a lack of prosperity problem; WE HAVE AN ENTITLEMENT PROBLEM, an

UN-GRATEFULNESS problem, and it's spreading like a plague."

          This lady's thoughts are certainly - Something to Think About!
