You hear this soft, inflected tone everywhere that young people below, roughly, 35 congregate. As flat as the bottles of spring water they carry and affectless as algae, it tends to always trend towards a slight rising question at the end of even simple declarative sentences. It has no timbre to it and no edge of assertion in it.

Ahh, but they're spurred into action with Pavlovian certainty...given the correct stimulus.

I have a niece...pod person, as above. I made a negative comment about two guys kissing on TV . She threw a vase at me, and burst into tears. They're an army of effete who will kill like robots for the politically correct reason, then declare insanity. Spooky.

This is one of those great columns that says so much more than what it's seemingly saying.

The "Whatever" voice is the symbol of the whole disaffected, amoral, proudly disinterested pack running through our culture. I hear that voice every day in my work and it makes me want to scream. But then, I've been told all my life that I talk like...like I think MY opinion MEANS something, and don't I know that some people don't LIKE that tone in my voice?

Listen to the complete audio of this. And save it. It's a snapshot of a generation. And it sure as hell ain't the Greatest Generation.

I thought that this was about the Kerry Filibuster threat.

FINALLY!!!! A thorough incisive article which discusses my total disgust with the sounds I hear each and every day.

Totally on target and thanks.

Another hit piece condemning an entire generation... Where do our fine volunteer service men and women come from if this is all there is?

This is the same thinking that condemns the entire 60's generation disregarding people that didn't rebel, people like W.

The Pathetic Last Children of Nietzsche's Pitiable Last Men

. . . Stein's piece is an out-and-out assault on masculinity, on men with honor, on men who fight, on men who make sacrifices for a higher good in order to protect the ungrateful children of a lesser one.
