Confessions of an Old Man: How I Am Stealing From Future Generations by Munir Moon reflects the thoughts of an elderly man who looks past his age into what tomorrow holds for his offspring. Working from the premise that what millennials inherit depends on the choices we have made in the past and the choices we make today, he makes a strong case against the contemporary American political landscape and unveils glaring flaws in the system. The author explains how the political scene is structured to rob millennials of their future and plunge them into a life of misery, being on the receiving end of the repercussions of the decisions made by today’s politicians and decisions inspired by sheer greed. The author makes readers understand how society cares less about the legacy it leaves to future generations.
Well-researched and intelligently written, this book is a tool for reflection that everyone with a good conscience should read, a book for those who love the children of America. The author deftly exposes the stupidity in domestic and foreign policies, starting from policies related to taxes to foreign relations and to our relationship with the environment. I was shocked to learn for the first time that the cost of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan stands at an estimate of “$5,600,000,000,000 dollars and nearly 6,800 mostly young American soldiers killed, and counting.”
The tone in Confessions of an Old Man is strong, filled with rage — and rightly so — and the author comes across as informed and very insightful in his message. His arguments are backed by clear references, which even feature some Tweets, memos, conversations, and documents by or relating to key decision makers in the United States. This book should be perceived as a wake-up call to right the wrongs the generation before this one and the present generation are doing to the future of millennials. It’s a very realistic, prophetic statement about what we’ll leave to those who will come after us.
