We all think consumerism has got out of hand, but when people spend less over Christmas it's reported as if it were something terrible. |
We all want to cut pollution, but when a car manufacturer shuts down factories that produce cars that run on diesel that too is reported as a disaster.
Political upheaval is particularly frightening; we're all agreed that the rulers of the world are a frightful shower and the system that sustains them is corrupt and ineffectual, but when that system starts to fall apart we find it terrifying.
Change always comes with a cost- insecurity, loss of employment, loss of income, loss of life.
We all want a better world- but we don't want to belong to the generation that brings it about.
