As each generation grows older they always think that the next younger generation is so out of control...

Like the 1900's "Classical Victorian" generation thought that the 1920's young "Jazz Age Flapper" generation was out of control...

When the "Jazz Age Flapper" generation grew older they thought that the 1940's young "Swing Band" generation was out of control...

As the "Swing Band" generation grew older they thought that the 1950's young "Rock And Roll" generation was out of control...

Then the "Rock And Roll" generation grew older and thought that the young "Hippie Flower Power" generation was out of control...

And then the "Hippie Flower Power" generation grew older and thought that the "Heavy Metal" generation was out of control...

Think about how the "Heavy Metal" generation is growing older now and whattaya know they think that the younger "Gangster Rapper" generation is out of control...

And so it goes on and on and on and its all so true and very interesting and intriguing and rather fascinating indeed...

Either its an ever blossoming denial of getting old and just expressions of fear and anger about growing old and eventually quite harmless...

Or we actually are spiraling evermore downwards and out of control ever faster ever closer to our eventual demise...

Yes I have noticed that. It's probably always been like that in modern history at least. I don't know whether it's evolution or devolution.

neither evolution nor devolution - imo it's transition. to me it seems like the focus of each generation shifts to other values - but the values themselves remain the same.

Oh yeah things hardly have changed.

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.

Nothing to see here, I'm just getting old, and couldn't keep up with times.

Institutional Age Segregation is a valid reason for creating our cultural and societal "Generation Gap" that has now become in my opinion a "Generation Canyon"...

Quote: The generational gap is a term popularized in Western countries during the 1960s referring to differences between people of younger generations and their elders, especially between children and their parents.

Although some generational differences have existed throughout history, modern generational gaps have often been attributed to rapid cultural change in the modern and postmodern period, particularly with respect to such matters as musical tastes, fashion, culture and politics. These changes are assumed to have been magnified by the unprecedented size of the young generation during the 1960s, which gave it the power and inclination to rebel against societal norms.

However, sociologists also point to institutional age segregation as an important contributing factor to the generational divide. Those in childhood phases are segregated within educational institutions or child care centers, parents are isolated within work-based domains, while older generations may be relegated to retirement homes, nursing homes, or senior day care centers. Social researchers see this kind of institutionally-based age segregation as a barrier to strong intergenerational relationships, social embeddedness, and generativity (the passing down of a positive legacy through mentoring and other cross-generational interactions).

Each generation has to deal with their special brand of societal/world craziness in their own way.

Endless fascination for me is wondering why most perhaps all of us long for and desire about a past that may not have been so much better after all?!

I mean like i'm always wishing for and reminiscing about my early youthful years during the 1970s and my teenage and young adult years during the 1980s and 1990s...

While perpetually fantasizing about living within another place in space and time before i was born that surely seems to be so much more than where and when i'm currently living within...

While losing focus of the present here and now thats alive all around me while forgetting about the unknown future thats always a step and a breath away...

Unless of course the reincarnation of our human souls is real and i think and feel that it really is and then everything coalesces crystal clear...
