People and societies create things and the conditions for them to flourish but as they age they find don’t like what they have created or that the creation has left them behind. It is always the coming generation that recognizes the potential and possibilities of what the older generation has started. It is always the coming generation that seizes the opportunity and takes advantage of the invention or creation or conditions leaving the older generation alienated and behind with no understanding of what has happened. The older generation abhor what the newer generation do with what the elders started.
Confusionists as they age must be careful to not fall into this trap of negativity and recognize that this is a time immemorial natural occurence and stay back from judging.
