The youth of today blame everything on the older generation.
We are destroying the planet because of our use of plastic, smoking, mining fossil fuels, flying large aircraft, driving round in diesel/petrol powered vehicles, etc, etc, etc.
Just remind me which generation it was that walk 3 miles or more to school each day, then back home again with a bag full of homework books, regardless of the weather. Who travelled by public transport all over the country because only the rich had cars and went abroad for holidays. Who used paper bags/canvas sacks/wickerwork baskets for their shopping. Bought their meat from butchers, their fruit & veg from greengrocers and their various other shopping such as sugar, butter, milk, eggs etc from local family run shops. We ate what we were given with the understanding that if we didn't like it then we got nothing else. A case of eat it or go hungry till the next meal. Very few people suffered from allergies because we didn't continually sanitise everything in sight, destroying our natural bodily defence systems. Gave old clothes, bits of iron, copper, brass, newspapers, much repaired but finally broken household machines to people who came collecting things by pulling a cart be either horse or hand.
Who stood in the street when it was raining/snowing/blowing a gale to make an important phone call to a doctor/hospital because someone was seriously ill, from a call box used by many different strangers or, if you were wealthy, from a phone firmly attached to a wall by a wire so you couldn't walk around with it and had to make your calls after 6.00pm when it was cheap rate. We either wore hand-me-down clothes or clothes that had been stitched/darned/knitted etc because buying new ones every month simply wasn't an option. Going out for a drink was a weekend treat because we were working too damned hard during the week to have the energy, or the money, to go out every night as if it was a God given right. We did chores around the house, ran errands for neighbours and had part time jobs when we were school children because it was the only way we could have our own little bit of money.
Not all todays youth are critical of the older ones amongst us, (some I come into contact with even have respect for us), but the vast majority think the world owes them a living even though they have not contributed anything to it yet. They think they should be able to have the latest gadgets, (which usually use a lot of non-recyclable plastics, electronics etc and even those that are re-cyclable are often just dumped somewhere or thrown in a bin). They go on foreign holidays using large aircraft, after being driven to the airport in daddys/mummys large gas guzzler vehicle. Buy fashionable clothes at extortionate prices that have often been manufactured in eastern sweatshops by children younger than themselves, and carry them home in large coloured plastic bags which they then throw in the bin. Smoke these vaping gadgets, (more plastic), which are then, also, thrown away. Have lived such a sterile lifestyle that they have virtually no immunity from the slightest airborne bacteria and have allergies unknown when we were that age. Have turned to be being vegetarians, (or worse, vegans!), forgetting that mankind is actually carnivorous and needs meat in their diet for the human body to function correctly. They cannot be subjected to any form of stress because it will affect their stability and make them feel insecure, this in turn will not allow them to cope with simple tasks such as being in a room with other people, (unless it's at a rave with a thousand other screaming, sweating, individuals all rubbing shoulders together because they are crammed into a small place!).
I think thats enough for now.
