Mitch: thank you for your thoughtful comment. John Tamny wrote this and I agree with him — (keep in mind this is taken out of context of his entire article): “If the definition of commercial productivity is constantly doing more with less, then it should be said that the definition of human evolution is constantly shedding knowledge so that new knowledge can be gained. We can and should revere the experiences and skills of previous generations, but never should we be so naïve as to as to unfavorably compare them to who we are today. Indeed, the sacrifices and knowledge needed in the past don’t elevate the people of the past, rather what we don’t know and know how to do compared to them speaks to human evolution that makes each generation greater than the previous one.” — John Tamny http://www.forbes.com/sites/johntamny/2012/07/01/rethinking-tom-brokaws-greatest-generation-was-it-really-the-greatest/2/
