"What is happening to our young people? They disrespect their elders, they disobey their parents. They ignore the law. They riot in the streets inflamed with wild notions. Their morals are decaying. What is to become of them?"

Quote from Plato, 4th Century BC

No Nothing new at all.

Nothing new. Just the same as one generation bemoaning the next, has happened since antiquity

"..What is to become of them?"

Faces on Sky news and the subject of mass hysteria?

Thats 2000 years for you!

Notice that's no-one's calling for Fred the Shred to be evicted. Hows that superinjuction going?

What comes around goes around?

I think there's an earlier quote it's second hand but will have to do!

"We live in a decaying age. Young people no longer respect their parents. They are rude and impatient. They frequently inhabit taverns and have no self control." -Inscription, 6000 year-old Egyptian tomb (quoted in R. Buckminster Fuller's I Seem to be a Verb)

Yay, I guess we'll be back to defending ourselves with swords and arrows and whatever else they had gotten around to inventing by 400 BC or thereabouts!
