... Are perfectly okay! They're the same as they were fifty years ago. In fact:
"What is happening to our young people? They disrespect their elders, they disobey their parents. They ignore the law. They riot in the streets inflamed with wild notions. Their morals are decaying. What is to become of them?"
So obviously, this whol mentality of today's youth being worse than the last generation has been going on for thousands of years. Despite the news reporting "alarming increases" in teenage drug use, sex, preganancies, addiction, we're still A-okay. All those things have actually gone down, despite what the media says.
I came across this quote while I was doing research on media scare mongering for an essay. And I'm a bit ticked hearing so many old fogies complaining about my generation, when they're own generation used to act the same way.
