E datoria fiecărei noi generații să pună la îndoială moștenirea primită, să se revolte și să nege valorile părinților, să schimbe lumea și să încerce să o facă mai bună. Așa cum ar spune Joe Cocker, e destinul copiilor să nu își asculte părinții. Tot la fel de firesc e ca celelalte generații să dea ochii peste cap, să nu înțeleagă, să ofteze și să deplângă lucrurile de pe vremea lor care au pierit. În spațiul acesta în care se negociază mereu prezentul, între ce au construit generațiile mai vechi și ce vor să pună în loc cele noi, am strâns lista noastră de weekend. E despre generații. De la generația tăcută și baby boomers la millenials, generația X și noile Y și Z. Ce au ele în comun, ce le desparte, ce ar trebui să facă pentru a se întâlni la mijloc.
The 1960s Was A Reaction To The '50s "Silent Generation"
The speaker is Frithjof Bergmann the famed professor of philosophy at the University of Michigan. He was an articulate witness to the changes that took place in America and especially on universities in the 1960s. He went on to study blue-collar workers at the automobile plants in Michigan and developed a concept for work he called “new work”. He also wrote the popular books “On Being Free” and “The Experience Of Values”. I interviewed him in 1989 for my TV series looking at the 1960s. I remember at the time of the interview that virtually every answer he gave to my questions was fascinatingly unique.
