The lost generation that knows it can change our society for the better

This video came out a couple years ago, and was part of an AARP contest in which it won second place.  I just came across it again and think it's really appropos to the OccupyEverywhere events going on right now. 

Basically - there's are societal memes that would say we're stuck, that we can't change things in any appreciable way, that we just have to put up with whatever lumps life knocks us over the head with.

Some of us do not accept those limitations.  Some of us know we can live a different way, live a better life, live the life of our choosing.  I believe, ideally, the Occupy folk are doing their best right now to reinvent some things.
