"My generation's formative years saw the Oklahoma City Bombing, the Columbine massacre and the falling of the Twin Towers — all highly reported events that claimed the lives of innocent people en masse. We watched our schools install metal detectors and participated in mass shooting drills where we had to hide under our desks in silence. We've realized that we're living in a financial system that fails to serve so many of us and — unlike in past centuries — we're able to talk about it globally.

It makes sense that younger people are reacting against it, whether it's through the Occupy protests, the rising popularity of Marxism or the rejection of religion."
