    they have an air of entitlement about them, but the way they speak to others, they are not really that sensitive ; are they.

    Perhaps he meant those young people of today who prescribe to the values of modernity. Perhaps the young luddites of today are quite pleasant icon_razz.gif

    Perhaps I'm talking rubbish.

    Perhaps...

    I'll go to bed now.

    Yep, the world is ours. Who else is gonna take it?
    Now, good idea for a thread, I mean with many older generation fellows on here you'll get many that agree with you, however, I must ask what triggered this thought? Finally, " [...] are to[o] sensitive" - wheres the sensitive part in your discussion? you only mention that we are "[...] really not that sensitive."

    explain yourself ol' chap icon_smile.gif

    If you're worrying about the young people of today and wondering what they're going to do when they're older - they're going to grwo up and be worrying about the young people of tomorrow.

    Well you fucked the enviornment, destroyed the economy, killed any hope of better healthcare, war ravaged half the middle east and borrowed your entire GDP+ so...

    Here's hoping your generations influence dies quickly and we can do a better job for the world our children are entitled too

    thinking specifically USA, Europe has had it's own problems but not my audience

    I find the young guys on the whole have great sensitivity, openness to shared warmth, have really good bullshit detectors, and are pretty damn talented.

    Pattison, as I see it, they will do a much better job with this world than our generation has. Go for it dudes, show the old cronies of my generation and before how it's done. Peace, love, understanding and work together as one! I hope I'm around long enough to see some of it happen.

    lol Yea there are some young people like that, except young people who are or were in the military, or were just plain and simply raised right. My dad always taught me to work hard at everything you do. Don't do it for praise, and rewards because not all work is rewarded, and not everyone wins.

    That whole entitlement mentality I feel just makes a person weak. Gives no incentive to do better, giving everyone a trophy and praise doesn't help someone, and push them to do better.

    heh, you said "tautological"... i have a running joke with my boss about this since once of our consultants managed to use tautological twice in one email to us... now we try and incorporate it into our conversation at least once a day icon_lol.gif

    Hmm the environment is thought about a lot more than it was back in the past, especially in the early industrial age. It was so bad back in the day certain polluted lakes would actually be on fire they were so messed up. I don't think anyone sees anything like that today. People are becoming, and are more environmentally conscious than they were back in the day.

    It was that gimme gimme me me me, kind of attitude of people, who messed up the economy. That gimme gimme, me me me, mentality is also seen with a lot of young people today as well. Which started back in the 80's but kind of blew up in the 90's even more now.

    If you're living in America, you have the best health care, where people from other countries even come to get treated for things. Is it perfect? No, does it need some reform? Yes.. Do the majority of the people in this country feel it should be reformed? Yes.. However nobody wants the system to make government bigger, which is exactly what is being proposed to us so far would do, which is pretty much why the majority is against it, and wants a better offer.

    War ravaged? Yea war sucks, especially when you see it first hand, and when you see the families of people who lost someone.. It would be nice if there were no people in the world that caused wars, but unfortunately there are. War sucks but false peace is much more dangerous. As for this war in particular.. Anyone who was paying attention to the world in the 90's especially the mid/late 90's saw this coming. I didn't feel the war was wrong, and its part of why I joined, and proud of the work I've done overseas.

    All of that borrowing came about, because people lost sight of who they were. More importantly greatly lacked common sense and responsibility... Two things a lot of people in this next generation don't show too well.. So I don't put a lot of faith in the next generation lol.


    Europe's been doing that entitlement thing for awhile, and looking at its shape now... It don't look like it worked too well, they're in way worse shape than we are, on the brink of revolution.

    Everyone has a right to be angry, because things have been messed up. Just have to be careful on what road you go down in hopes of fixing it. Because screwing up now would make things far worse than they already are.

    The Young Generation vs The Old Generation argument...

    Hasn't this been going for centuries? See "The Conflict of Generations in Ancient Greece and Rome" by Stephen Bertman.

    Bertman throws down centuries-old accounts of the old people shaking their canes at the young people, repeating the same tired "I had to walk five miles to school in the snow" blah blah.

    Whenever a society prospers, people take advantage of it. Just because young people act entitled today doesn't mean older generations didn't act entitled or seem entitled to the older generation then.

    When a person complains about how bad a whole "younger" generation is, it means they are getting old and bitter.

    Each generation is a product of the previous generation, so complaining about them is like cutting off your own balls (or ovaries as the case may be).

    Better to be a sensitive young person than a bitter old queen who has never even had any children in the first place.

    i've notice that peeps in their 20's and 30's are more tolerant and accepting of gays than peeps in their 40's and 50's. icon_cool.gif
