    Ah yes, I remember the demos of the 1970s well, being involved in many of them (on the "pig" side). Free university education back then, if only they'd had to work to pay for their tuition and rent and food they'd have been too bloody tired for demos - but it would have taken all the fun out of it :lol:

    Hilarious take on the youth of today.

    We forget that when we Boomers were protesting, we were a HUGE percentage of the population, plus we were the most pampered generation of youth in the world.

    Today's youth are too freaking busy trying to stay alive to take on projects other than survival and preparing for their careers, I think.

    They're good kids, they know what a shitty world they're coming into.

    Give 'em a freaking break.

    They have more important things on their minds, right now, than protesting over things they know they cannot effect.

    Oh.... the attention seeking "anarchist" writing a post that looks supportive of youth protests... what a fucking shock.. NOT! :rolleyes:

    About time to put this attention whore youth on the ignore list with the other immortals like kirkybot and bobo the assclown

    Me, too.

    I did my protesting when I was in the NAV.

    I had plenty of time back then.

    The sooner the 70's 'protester' crowd are drolling in their soup at the nursing home or six feet under, the better off this country will be. That time is coming and hopefully it won't be too late by then.
