    The older I get the more I believe in generational shifts. However, in this time of crisis, I don't see todays young adults as heros. I guess that remains to be seen. I'll give them some time.

    I wasted too much time studying history at Uni; this Strauss and Howe have revealed what should have been my major, the fine art of gross generalization.

    Still there is something true in most generalizations.

    These categories may hold vaguely true through the stages of life, hell if you drink heavily you can progress through them all in one day.

    I'd say bullshit too. Unless it can be seen throughout history and across the entire globe then it's just a wank.
