Selfish students with nothing to say
When students have something worthy to protest about, then I'll support them. Students reflect nowadays an innate selfishness. They think the world should revolve around them and their likes and dislikes. When was it NOT hard to find your way in an adult dominated world? If they were demonstrating about man's inhumanity to man, man's ignorant big- headed attitude to other animals then I'd be happy to lend my support. Who are they demonstrating for? - themselves. They are not starving, they are not living on the streets, they are not being cruelly treated. So what are they complaining about? There are plenty who ARE starving, plenty who live on the streets, and plenty of people and animals who are being cruelly treated. Why have they never taken to the streets and complained on their behalf? In France thousands of people took time off their work to demonstrate against the raising of retirement age from 58/60 to 62. What a cheek! They also belong to the selfish generation who believe everything 'out there' should be at their disposal, at their behest. It is entirely probable that after the student rally yesterday most of the partakers will take to the pubs where they will spend the money they say they haven't got on - booze.
