Jason is a twat …

Jason is a guy I work with – and if I asked him if he really knew what a twat was – he would say “nope”.

But is that a bad thing? I would reply with a categorical “Nope”, too! He is a twat because he brings a new meaning to cynicism. Yet I have to question that because he isn’t ‘up’ on the philosophical debate about what cynicism is. He is, well, a very modern cynic in the modern sense – I put that down to him being young, he’s 20(ish). SO he has a right to be cynical I would say. Not on a political basis – I think he hates politics – and if he should read this post then I am sure he will add whether he does or not.

So what is he cynical about?

Interestingly; just about everything! I find that amusing in some ways and not in others. He makes remarkable comments about “JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!” albeit about his frustration and not having the tools to do his job – and how he really, really would like to have them. Though, while thinking about that, isn’t it a matter that this blasphemy is a political statement about how he cannot do his job to the best of his ability because he doesn’t have the correct tools to do his job and that if some snot in a government office far, far away had a great idea about utilising a tax system so he could have the best tools … ?

Isn’t that what modern cynicism is all about? Dunno.

What I do know is that listening to him, as he is much, much younger than I, the youth of today (forgive that pun) have to be cynical in varying degrees. Long gone are the days when son could follow father into reasonable paying work. Gone are the days when kids could be expected to leave school with the ability to read and write other than a degree in gobbledy-gook such as Kthnxby! Idiotic! Yet we, the older generation, have stripped the Jason’s of this world what should be a God-given right to full and free education because our generation don’t want to pay too much tax – even though willing to pay politicians exorbitant salaries and stupid expenses. Give billionaires tax breaks that they will only bank and loop-holes to businesses whereby they can, with obvious slight-of-hand, send money to other countries and not invest in the country where they do business. Allow banks to rape economies only to allow them to re-offend all at the time asking those whom they have raped to pay for their mistake.

Is Jason then a real twat?

I have to say no, he isn’t – he is, like so many who are young and old, feeling that their country doesn’t care.And he seems to be right.
