Oh, there is a transcript of Carl Sagan's keynote speech in that @dredmorbius toot that I just boosted!


Carl Sagan’s Keynote Speech at the 5th Emerging Issues Forum (1990)

I feel like I should post a quote from this Carl Sagan speech every two minutes.

I wonder when people will finally react. Is it just a question of the old generation having to die, or are young people also unable to make the right decision? Sometimes I wonder. All I know is that my generation has not managed to turn the ship around.

In 2019 @troodon wrote something about Boomers and Generation X that I felt to be uplifting at the time. Time for a reread.



remember the lyrics from land of confusion by genesis?

"I won't be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We're not just making promises
That we know we'll never keep"

the spirit of the youth is always that of a revolution, then they get a family and kids to raise, make ends meet, follow a career and before they know it they are 40+ and too worn out or comfy to make a change πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
