Generation War

Here in Sydney we ready for the APEC demos. The cops claim the huge barricade and foreign soldiers with guns are necessary because they found a booklet from a student "Mutiny" group about how to wear a gas mask.

Sometimes I think this is a war between the generations.

All the old people have to lose is their stuff and values and faculties, and those are doomed anyway, as their stuff gets superceded, different, more intelligent values evolve,and win favour from all but the old and entrenched, and their closed minds close their senses to the world.

All the young people have at stake is their life and the life of their offspring, trying to save the planet before the rich idiot's destroy the biosphere to mine a dollar.

My money is on the young.
