The ‘new generation’ card is an interesting one and may resonate with trends that are gathering momentum in the US and Australia. My own prediction is that within the next 10 years there will be a generation-based cultural revolution, similar in its revolutionary intensity to the one in the 60s. Spurred on by wired technology and global imperatives like climate change, the ‘new generation’ will revolt against the ‘boomer’ generation accusing it (fairly or unfairly) of failure and the consequences will be profound.

  1. Each new generation wakes up the previous. Each new generation sees the truths of the previous. Consciouness of the planet raises. Technology helps the spread of the truth. We have to be grateful for the likes of Bill Gates

  2. I completely agree and (fairly or unfairly) believe that the “wired” generations will come down with incredible harshness at previous generations for “their complete disregard for the future in the manner in which they consume and have exploited the environment.”
