Values and Time

“Age and generation effects are often confused. Complaints of older people about “young people today” have been found on an Egyptian papyrus manuscript that is 3,000 years old. One of the oldest Greek texts preserved, Hesiod’s Works and Days, which dates towards the end of the eighth century B.C., contains a pessimistic paragraph on the new generation in which “father will have no common bond with son” and “men will dishonor parents … and will blame and criticize with cruel words””
