Talkin' about my generation? Putting us down because we got around more than you?
We weren't sowing seeds for a future harvest. We were living for now.
Your generation seem to have become very conservative. "Hope I live to see the harvest" is not the same vision as "Hope I die before I get old".
Why do you feel I'm putting you down? At least I didn't put your generation below other generations, because as I said, that harvest is yet to be done.
You say you were living for now, which is good, but you also had to take care of that treasure, and you failed there. That's why the dream of the 60's had an end. If the conviction of peace and love would have been stronger than doing drugs and free sex, then your influence on the world would have been much more substantial.
By the way, I'm not defending my generation because I don't feel represented by people of my age. And I believe "I hope I die before I get old" is referring to the mind, not the body; or at least that's my interpretation.
