It so pains me to read this

<< The children of today, we dont need that excuse, and perhaps more realistically, we realise that capitalism is the only reason we can enjoy that life. I think you're looking at the past through rose-tinted glasses. >>

kumakouji,

If it were not for the aspirations of the kids in the sixties, you and yours would not be able to stick their fingers up the man's ass, the way we can now, in the U.S.

How can you think your generation is somehow superior to mine? Yes, there were the ones with colored glasses, but what about, oh god don't get me started, all our culturual heroes from that time? Lou Reed John Cale Bob Dylan Pete Townshend

The eagerness and determination of your generation may save the planet, but we wouldn't have that zeal without what has gone before

We got you where you are now, so show some humility and then save the planet, okay?

hey kid

My reaction to your post yesterday was emotional and visceral. First, I thought, based on your writing here, that you were much older. And then, to disparage my favorite generation! Ack, it made me all defensive, and I felt hurt!

Thanks for writing back and helping me understand your perspective
