On defining #creativity @rexjung :

Distinct from #intelligence – a superhighway; #creativity as a slow meandering process down dirt road / side road

Must be both #novel and @useful – beyond simple #utility – something #new within a social context. Unexpected links ✨🤓✨

Scapegoating #Brexit

The blaming the elderly thing is a bit off or at the least, is over-simplistic. Three generations are crammed into “65+”; namely #Boomers (54-71 in 2016), #SilentGen (71-91) and GG (92-106) At this point we all know that 65+ voted to Leave 64:36. 1/
Boomers made up 6 years worth of the 65+ in 2016. Not much, right? Well, in 2016 “65+” made up 18% of the pop and those bt 65-71 work out at about 7.4% of it. SG & GG make up another 10.7%, heavily weighted to the younger end (Pop >85 in 2016 was 2.6%). 2/
So *of that voting cohort*, those six years of Boomers make up ~41% of “65+”. Following cohort as given in breakdowns is 50-64yr olds. Bar ~4 years, that is entirely Boomer gen, and voted to Leave 60:40. 3/

To move rightward, is about the desire to conserve, hence #conservative. In order to want to conserve, you have to have something you want to conserve. If all you have is debt and more #debt, what the heck do you have to conserve? @sapinker
The progression to more right with age is a historically temporary #American phenomenon born out of the fact that #boomers acquired increasing affluence because of the society in which they found themselves as a result of the #NewDeal & #progressive policies which they inherited
Having been born on third base and believing they had hit a triple, as a generation, they decided to slow this #wealth distribution thing down a little and now we find ourselves where we find ourselves. The move rightwards requires something to conserve.

New thread on #WhiteGuilt. We've seen through these lies:

❌Migration has no affect on house prices, wages or hospital waiting lists

❌White race does not exist

❌Diversity is beneficial

❌ Multi-culturalism works

But there's one lie that's gaining not losing ground ...
Lie gaining ground is #Boomers are responsible for situation West is facing.

One generation, spanning 18 yrs, single handedly changed us from a thriving, affluent, dominant race with strong family values and flourishing communities into impoverished, powerless individuals? 🤔
This lie is gaining strength because too many whites have internalised the message white people are privileged, untrustworthy and evil.

White people are the cause of all that's wrong with the world.

White people don't deserve to exist.

So what do we do with that guilt? .....
