I’ve felt this for a while, but the magnitude of it only hit me last night in a conversation with a friend. The nation states and governments of today are problem solving using structures and tools that were created for a world that no longer exists. This is why we cannot solve the collective issues facing us, e.g. global warming, terrorism, regulation of the internet.

While the majority of my generation (myself included up till recently) remains blind to this, I think this fact is painfully obvious to the millennials. This could be the root of the apathy and hedonistic tendencies that we often perceive in them and complain about.
