In the west it seems that if its not new then its boring and irrelevant..
People go to extreme meassures to look young and recapture their "lost youth", spend fortunes doing it and in the end are no better off than
The old are seen as "past it" with nothing to add to society, whilst the young are elivated..
I can say for certain that the youth most certainly have a voice, however most of the time it comes from ill experience with no basis in reality. This
is why we are in a situation where relatively young policy makers are making a huge mess of things.
Those ignored voices of the older generation shout loudly with ways to fix the mistake. Advice that comes with real experience and hard learning.
Stop celebrating youth and start celebrating growing older.. Be proud of your greying hair and wrinkles. Each one is a battle fought and won, those
laughter lines are testiment to how much you have laughed, and those frown lines are the before laughter lines, frowning at young fools with no clue..
Those lines say "I survived"
Whilst the west declines as the kids run riot, the east, who listens to its elders, who can keep its family together, are on the up..
Maybe there is a lesson there somewhere
