Society is run by old men...
And there is nothing that men whom are old hate more than men who are young...
But youth existed before age...
Therefore youth is older than age...
Therefore youth is wiser than age...
Some people, were just born old...
- he's saying there is a generation gap. and he's on the better side.
Well I kinda caught that, but I wonder why it pleased him to say so.
...well for us boomers it was, "don't trust anyone over thirty." It gave us a sense of power and identity…now, I regret not listening to that very wise
good-hearted generation. But, we had a lot of negativity to fight against too.
Now, what do young adults have to fight against? nothing much ... maybe our arrogance and maybe the fact that society has gone overboard in rebelling against everything and anything!!
If they are fighting politically against the old hippies who happen to still be in office as career politicians, that is good.
If he is in his 20's I doubt he even knows what a hippie is... it is more likely the money makers on wall street that vex him? Who knows... maybe we will never know.
So , what's been lost is the hand off of wisdom , maturity , and knowledge. Is it because the elders failed or because youth in all it's greatest idealisms - no longer listens ? Me thinks its youth 's fault !
need not bring envy
given a little respect
for lessons learned
and the ability to pass them on
yet even in this.
there is ever the new
the quick moving flow
towards the lake of the future
grey hairs cannot keep up with that current
and are often caught in the under toe
Every time you think
that age is given too much ado
consider jumping into the breaches
they can handle
and see which you prefer
the river you flow with gladly
or the one that requires
more tact and wisdom
than deftness in keystrokes.
If you chose the latter
bully for you
chances are you wont though
and then you have naught to disparage
I liked that alot.. and i don't too freely give compliments. I'm off to read some of your hubs.
