Is it just me…

…or does adult society have a nasty habit of forgetting how life was when it was in its youth?

Just saw a poll on Breaking

A study has revealed that homophobic bullying is widespread among teenagers. Have you experienced this?

Show me a teenager or young adult who hasn’t and I’ll show you an emphatic liar.

“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders, and love chatter in places of exercise. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”

A quote not from last year, or last week, but by Socrates. Thousands of years ago. Maybe we’d do well to remember that society isn’t fucked, it’s just repetitive.
