The next generation is not nuts, lame, weak, selfish…
Even Plato complained that Aristotle’s generation was going to hell in a handbasket… complaining about the youth is truly the first sign of middle age, and it comes before grey hair! I’m feeling inspired by this Abraham quote about children….
“Children coming forth today have a greater capacity to deal with the greater variety of information that is coming forward than you did. They deliberately are coming forth into this environment where there is more to contemplate. This generation gap that you are talking about, it has ever been thus. Each new generation, every new individual, that comes forth, is coming with you having prepared a different platform for them to proceed from. There is this thing that gets in the way of that that says, “I’m the parent. I got here first. I know more than you do.” From the children’s perspective, and from the purity of their Nonphysical Perspective, what they are saying is, “You’re the parent. You got here first. You prepared a platform that I am leaping off from — and my leap will be beyond anything that you have ever known.”
