Senryu #17 Generational Contradiction

Save the planet, don’t buy a new iPhone, X-Box, TV, iPad, Laptop, washing machine, dishwasher ……. are the youth of today listening or merely virtue signalling?

“Both by precept and example we must show that true freedom is to be found not in uncontrolled licence, but in the control and mastery of desire; that true happiness lies not in a proliferation of goods, but in peace and contentment; that our relations with others are most rewarding when they are governed not by conflict and competition, but by kindness and compassion; and that true security is to be achieved not by the acquisition of wealth and power, but by the conquest of self with all its ambitions and conceits.”
