Cerebral Reckoning: A Call To Action

June 25, 2011

Sadly, just as true today as it was 55 years ago…so much for progress:

Young people of America, awake from your slumber of indolence and harken to the call of the future!  Do you realize that you are rapidly becoming a doomed generation?  Do you realize that the fate of the world and of generations to come rests on your shoulders?…Oh ignorant youth, the world is not a joyous place.  The time has come for you to dispense with the frivolous pleasures of childhood and get down to honest toil until you are sixty-five.  Then and only then can you relax and collect your social security and live happily until the time of your death.

Fearfully and disgustedly yours,
John J Righteous Hypocrite

(Hunter S. Thompson, The Athenaeum, 1955)
