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.
