In no particular order – 40 years ago

Forty years ago it was thought acceptable
To take oil out of the earth with no thought of developing alternative energy sources for future generations.
To pollute the environment with no expectation that it accelerated global warming.
To perpetrate casual racism, sexism, and homophobia.
To support the liberalisation of drink and drug controls without regard to serious health consequences.
To consume unrestricted amounts of sugar, salt, and processed food.
To replace our manufacturing industries with financial services.
To allow education standards in our schools to decline.
To fail to set proper examples for our children.
To expand a prison system that fails to rehabilitate offenders at the same time as neglecting to properly punish them.
To allow our political representatives to distance themselves from the people they are supposed to represent.
we should know better now.
