Thanks for your comment. I have had similar impressions from elsewhere, a 
sort of culture of lowered expectations where the future takes care of 
itself. Well, basically I don't see it as my task to "rally the youth to the 
cause" or something like that, although sometimes I provide info, or support 
if they request it themselves.

I'm 45 now, of the generation that was a child in the 1960s and matured in 
the late 1970s and 1980s. You can be young at heart, but you can't go around 
like you were 18 again. I don't care too much about "watching movies on Dvd 
and sports on TV, playing cards and video games, drink beer and smoke up, 
talk about sex, etc.", I am too busy with other stuff.

It's interesting though how the youth is more socially savvy than I remember 
it in bygone days, be it often with less idealism and more cynicism.

Jeez, all the things to be done... never enough time. I often which I could 
lodge time in files, and compact them, but admittedly it's a bit of a 
ludicrous idea... Back to work, got to get this over and done with.
