Reason to Hope

October 23, 2010

This video is a little corny but I really liked the sentiment … and the cleverness of the palindrome. This gets at the same concept I was discussing in the small hours of Sunday on a new york roof top with a couple strangers (ah wedddings): is our generation more hopeful or more cynical? Our parents were hippies; they used phrases like “after the revolution” un-ironically. Our elder cousins in Gen X saw the world that all that optimism had resulted in by the 1980’s (a pretty unappealing one) and turned a little bitter. But are we the same? Or, maybe more significantly, are our next-younger peers, the facebook generation? It remains to be seen.
