Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think a recurring trend is to see the previous generation as heroic and the current generation as degraded. WW2 was the war of the fathers of the generation currently in power, therefore they are the "greatest generation."

Yea, any generation that hasn't been stuck into uniforms and sent out to kill people can hardly have a claim to greatness...

Because after all, what's great and glorious about living in peace and prosperity? Who builds statues to or writes books about national leaders who merely keep their countries out of wars and ensure everyone is fed and housed? Certainly not English public schools!

England's toffocracy really is a disease.
