Imagine you were born in 1900. On your 14th birthday, World War I starts, and ends on your 18th birthday. 22 million people perish in that war. Later in the year, a Spanish Flu epidemic hits the planet and runs until your 20th birthday. 50 million people die from it in those two years. On your 29th birthday, the Great Depression begins. Unemployment hits 25%, the World GDP drops 27%. That runs until you are 33. The country nearly collapses along with the world economy. When you turn 39, World War II starts. You aren’t even over the hill yet. And don’t try to catch your breath. On your 41st birthday, the United States is fully pulled into WWII. Between your 39th and 45th birthday, 75 million people perish in the war. Perspective is an amazing art, refined as time goes on, and enlightening like you little else. Let’s try and keep things in perspective.“ Author unknown. When I am comparing that with today’s generations and their incessant narcissism and laziness, that are stressed and even raising protest against COVID19 measures because they need to stay at home a bit more than usual with internet, video games, books, e-books, audio books, Netflix … than I recall one more quote: “Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times.
Or imagine you have to burn your house down and kill your livestock per Stalins scorched earth policy
