Looking at what the world has come to, I am happy that I am as old as I am.

I recognize that youth of today have the same right as I had when I was that age, to go for their own generation's music, movies, litterature (or rather: lack of it), social conventions, food habits, ... you name it.

But it isn't my way. Quite far from it. It is far from my ideals and tastes. I could of course turn into a grumpy old man, spending the rest of my life complaining about how bad youth are today, how they ruin the world. It would be of no use - grumpy old men never stopped a society from developing.

I know well that today's young generation doesn't create a very much "worse" world than our generation did, it is just different. So different that I don't feel at home in it. If I had an opportunity to sit watching it for another 100 years, moving further and further away from my wishes every year, I would have gone crazy from frustration. I would rather lie down when I still feel that I can "tolerate" the modern world, even though I am far from enjoying it. I guess I can take another 20 or 30 years, but not much more. I wouldn't mind if it happened much faster.
