    Default Perhaps this explains it all

    This was a post from 5 years ago I made else where.
    Sat at a pub with a friends son tonight, he was explaining to me the things I had got wrong, like "life"

    Made me think of a writer I once read much of...........

    Perhaps this applies to our now and how the world is, was a very clever man this G Orwell

    "Each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it."

    - George Orwell

    Things start happening as soon as folks take responsibility.

    This means that we have a responsibility towards the next generation to teach them the principles we value.
