Young people today have many reasons to be discontent. Many of the opportunities that were enjoyed by previous generations just aren't there. In fact, a whole new social contract is being written, and it is one of diminished expectations.
That's why we have queued up Henry Rollins, who came from nothing, has worked incredibly hard to be successful, and shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. Not surprisingly, Rollins's advice to young people is to work hard, but he also says it is as important to have a strong moral compass.
He describes this as the ultimate motivator for himself and for young people today: "When you look at what real desperation and ignorance looks like, when you have to run from it, like, literally run from it, you don’t want to be that. You want to be that which leads others out of that."
