Eating Our Young


It is popular now to talk of race, class, and gender oppression.
But left out of this focus on supposed victim groups is the one truly targeted cohort — the young. Despite the Obama-era hype, we are not suffering new outbreaks of racism. Wendy Davis is not the poster girl for a resurgent misogyny. There is no epidemic of homophobia. Instead, if this administration’s policies are any guide, we are witnessing a pandemic of ephebiphobia — an utter disregard for young people. - -Works and Days

Your Say

It is proper to take money from the young.

The young are inexperienced suckers.

It is immoral to let a sucker keep his money. (American Gambler Canada Bill Jones)

Disregard for young people?
As opposed to what, regard? By whom?
For better'n 30 years you hear nothing but *for the children* all over the media.

Our son is young, and his mother and I regard him highly, that is our job. Everyone else gets to leave him alone and regard their own kids. It's a full time job. If you are doing your job properly you don't have the time to stick your nose into mine. Now go get busy.
