In days of yore, such behavior would have been an affront to the decent citizens of our country. But times and technologies have changed. Today, these so-called online influencers receive hefty compensation, even when they have little to no qualifications for what they do.
Contrast that with a pair of weathered old fogies like you and me, my friend. No matter how hale and hardy we may feel, we don’t stand a chance. At least not unless someone invents a miracle module that can restore our youth, vim, and vigor. In the meantime, we’re just bystanders, people to basically be ignored, and all we can do is shake our heads and watch while these geeks inherit the Earth.
