    We've a term in Singapore and Taiwan for the young MTV generation - the Strawberry Generation. Looks nice on the outside, but soft on the inside - easily bruised and won't stand up to any hardship.

    We worry about the next generation - they're not as tough as our parents were, not as enterprising, much more self-centered and much less street-smart. Instead, they would rather spend time and money enjoying themselves or making themselves look pretty.

    The current economic downturn may be a good thing. Hopefully, it'll train up another generation of tough go-getters like the Great Depression toughened up the Greatest Generation.

      I hate to think of the synical remarks that this topic will bring up but I can't help but agree with you. Sometimes I think of the determination and steadfastness that came to light in England during the bad old days of the second World war both by young and old alike and shudder to think what the reaction would be in general now!!

            Don't forget the iPods. Without iPods, civilisation would cease to exist, and we'll be back to the dark ages.

              Bring it on. The image of the young having to work hard every day fills my heart with joy.

                Maurin, you probably just haven't found the right ones yet - they can be an acquired taste but a number of new movies are remakes. Just find a genre you like and look for early examples.

                Someday I may buy a cell phone or i-pod but for now I enjoy the "thinking time" free from interruptons.
