It's all perspective I guess. My family was decimated during the holocaust, fled to the USA during the 1950s, and were discriminated against for coming from the Soviet Union.
Then again, going to college in rural eastern Canada, I did get a taste of the "old times". The town had one traffic light, no one locked doors, there were town parades, harvest festivals, civic associations were strong, kids played ice hockey on the frozen ponds, hunting shotguns being brought to school, etc.
Some of the ugly side came out too, such as strong religious intolerance, distrust of outsiders/foreigners, etc.
Trashing on the younger generation is a rite of passage for every human that lives long enough to be able to do it. I'm sure I'll do it too. :image035:
