Inter generational anger
Every time I interact with any of the Parental Units these days, they leave me feeling as if they are profoundly disappointed in me. “Life,” they proclaim, “- you’re doing it all wrong.”
Their generation has presided over an era in which the planet has been polluted to the point where it is becoming uninhabitable, has championed a version of Crapitalism so extreme that our societies are being overwhelmed by inequality, and allowed an old evil - Fascism - that so many of our grandparents’ generation gave their lives to fight against, to rise again.
And I’m doing it wrong?
They laugh at “loony leftie” ideas, and tell us we can’t afford them. But we can’t afford to kill our home, it’s the only one we’ve got. And we can’t afford to abandon our kids to a life of poverty, as they will grow up incapable of making a positive contribution to our communities.
