I tried to have a conversation recently with a 20 year old. I probably won't try that much from now on. I finally realized the person I was speaking with was a child only a few years prior, and now considered himself to be a god. Not his fault, I guess. His self-esteem is high, and what more can a kid want from life?
I was about to explain dhimmitude by way of referring to the Pact of Omar. Then I had a strange thought. I asked the kid not about Omar but if he knew of Saint Paul. I drew a blank there. Now I listen to music and contemplate death. Shows what I know.
