The Great Unravelling
Young people today don't get it.
When I was young, sometimes it seemed like old people just didn't get it. Their opinions often seemed either irrelevant or inapplicable. My grandfather occasionally would pontificate about someone's lack of character as demonstrated by their behavior in a given circumstance. Things that were offensive to him just didn't bother me that much. I would think to myself, "That's old fashioned. People don't relate to each other on that basis anymore."
