Every generation has problems, the problem with ours is mostly augmented reality. Many can't tell what is real and what isn't real. including me.
Although it is easy to dismiss this book as the rantings of an old liberal grandpa, i must agree with one of my friends that this generation will produce more miracles in technology that may keep you alive, old man. we know how to learn how to do anything by finding it on google. people older than us really don't know how to do that.
