Being just in the nder 30's catagory (10 month to go) Back home I think kids have it harder.
where I grew up there were sweet shops that sold sweets, and maybe a few essentials for the home when we ran out so I cold be sent, now there are shops which are mini supermarkets so the parents have to go with them becase the 50 brands of toilet tissues squeezen on the 2inch shelf will confuse them, and at one time the shop was only big enough for the local paper/ sweety shop???
yes we had to walk to the post box, but we also had to stand in dog poop on the way which gave us a good imune system, now the dogs have been given nappies, the kids are ill at the meer mention of a bug, and no more penny sweets which you chose yourself, now they are sealed in air tight containers you need to go to school for to work out how to open.
with health an safety all the rage they can only go out the door if they are wearing a buble suit fitted with airbags a safety belt, and a bumper so don't learn when it is unsafe to do something because it is always safe, so as adults they may die yonger due to inexperiance of the hazards of life and inability to find a bubble suit to fit them.
lets face it life isn't getting easier its far harder, all the kids now know how to do is play on the 3D life like grass, in the future human hands will be masive due to the muscle structure, the body will wither away, and humanity will just be a pair of hands with eyes on the tips!
He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
