Disruption seems to be a big theme for the millanial generation. Blowing things up, in fact, is part of the notion that change is always a moving forward. Disrupting the supply chain, the way in which we pay for the things that are manufactured, are part of a new economy. This model is supported by current age sages who design driver-less cars, and Bitcoin.
It also takes its place in art, as in the way in which, for instance, Brad Troemel and his cohorts deliver the product of their imagination.
The children who acted out in class were not teacher’s pets, but considered to be disruptive. That was not a good thing.
Don’t get me wrong, I have heard of revolutionizing norms and challenging convention. My generation had radical ideas, in politics and in art, too. We manned the barricades, and marched for justice. Our marching was disruptive, and in some ways changed the way things got done. It was about adjusting the course on which our country was headed.
While we may seek stability rather than disturbance, we recognize that boundaries need to be tested. I guess I have to acknowledge that it is possible that a new generation has found a way to provoke and find a new path.
