For some the parent-child relationship is fine (in any given culture) for others it is not. But we can't escape the parent-child relationship. For centuries it has worked and produced an ever growing population – this is the only purpose of any life-form. I understand the need to find 'a path'. To know what the hell is going on. But preaching to others with half cooked ideas is not the way. Enlightenment is a singular path and you can not offer your own enlightenment to others for they need to seek there own, if any at all. Don't expect anyone to listen, follow or understand. Don't waste your time posting quack messages on here. Tuning in and dropping out is lazy and far from solving the worlds problems. When did any esoteric movement heal the world? The world (as in a metaphor) is locked in a constant battle of light and dark, this is the balance, it won't change. The Ying and Yang if you like, although to me it's just the struggle of life (in the personal sense).
Magic is magic, it's not real. Don't let magic reflect on your real life.

Most parents in the world today, regardless of their race, nationality or age, are miserable failures as human beings.
So if a generation of youths is to obey their parents blindly like how the chinese/taiwanese/hkese youths blindly obey their parents, that generation of youths will turn out to be just as big a failure as their parents' generation thus churning out generation after generation of miserable wage slaves.
For humanity, for any nation to truly evolve, a generation of youths must find the courage and conviction to overthrow their parents for good, to strip away the bad and improve on the good.
I dare say Japan is on the verge of a EVOLUTIONARY RENAISSANCE never seen before in history.
