Henry Rollins has recorded an inspiring message for the young people of America. The video was directed and produced by Jonathan Fowler & Elizabeth Rodd for Big Think and features the song Sweet Unrest by Apparat.
We live in very interesting times and, as a young person going into a very turbulent and fragile economy that is going to get better–it’s going to take awhile.–, going into an employment environment that looks pretty scary, it is easy to lose your moral compass, your decency, your sense of civility and your sense of community very easy. Things in traffic make you mad. People are getting a little desperate. They might not show their best elements to you. You must never lower yourself to being a person you don’t like.
