The new generation: should we take control?

The previous generations have helpfully created economic and environmental crises which they won't end up having to fix, we will. I'm fed up of the excuses they make up and the attempts to force the world to return to how it was when they were younger because it's never going to be that way and they'll only create more trouble. I think they've had their chance and they've not delivered.

    Dec 12 2012: Every generation thinks of itself as the generation of 'the grand change'.
    But how can we lead if we are lost? and how can we lead if we dont know the way?
    We should face the challenges of our time with courage and faith. We should be aware at all times that only the best of humanity would be strong enough to to this.
    We should not be as arrogant as to underestimate the hold of injustice. We should work, with our eyes on the price.
