I don't think we're cry babies, I just think that the majority of the western world is caught in the rat trap and the inevitable culture of greed.
For years we ran around with the new 'must haves' and deep down we all surely know we haven't earned it nor deserved it as alot of what funds it or
funds the abilty to get it, and hence the 'must have' lifestyle, was the era of cheap credit. Our kids want for nothing and are impatient, yet move
onto the next must have in no time. We were truly gluttonous creatures, maybe we still are. Now that it's all coming to an end in one way or another,
the finger pointing starts, the jealousy erupts, the 'haves and have nots' gulfs widen, the misery and rot sets in.
Ask yourself this, when did you last truly see a quality item, built to last forever? They don't come by too often these days do they? That's
because we live in a throwaway society. That friends, must have an affect on our behaviour also. Look at family breakdown, divorce, abuse, emigration
from birthplace etc all of which is 'normal' compared to our fathers' generation. We have lost compassion too in my opinion, and local culture and
society has been negatively affected. We've become insular, unable to communicate en masse as a society or movement because we've never been truly
part of one. I ramble here I know, but our epoch will be judged on who we were and how we were remembered and not on the gadgets we had. They'll look
back to our time and agree that we were a miserable, greedy, weak and lonely group of sods.
