"The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers."

- Attributed to Socrates by Plato


Socrates was right - just as cods is correct in what she has said.

I believe it might be a wave-pattern phenomenon that roller-coasters with every few generations.

I've had three teachers this year telling me what feral pigs the kids are nowadays - and all three blame the culture of parental irresponsibility in the home.



And how did your parents take to you liking rock'n'roll, Herbie? Or have i got your generation wrong?

I seem to recall seeing plenty of references in popular culture to how appalled parents were about their kids listening to The Beatles and the subsequent decay of the social moral fabric.

Isn't it more the case that older people always criticise the young because they haven't taken the time to try to relate to them? So judge them all by the worst case scenarios?

herbie was raised in an orphanage in Hong Kong. He's as British as Mr Wong from the American Express adds.

REPORTER: The condition of the budget will not be an excuse for breaking promises?

TONY ABBOTT: Exactly right. We will keep the commitments that we make.

I had no father after age 8. There was no 'rock n roll in my mother's home or later in my aunt's home. It simply wasn't played, and had to be heard on the sly, so to speak.

The Beatles era passed me by like a ship in the night. That whole era left me cold. Trash music. The Rolling Stones and all the rest of those buggering drug-addled pretenders.

Here's the sort of music and genuine talent I want you to pay more attention to, Mothra - for your personal growth and moral edification:






God Bless America.

I will take your inability to address any of the points i made as tacit agreement, Herbie.

Here, have a proper song:

Jesus CHRIST, Mothra! I didn't deserve that Devil's music. I could feel myself sinking into a deep pit of despair and hopelessness with each twang of them unholy geetars!
