“The only thing that can save us as a species is seeing how
we’re not thinking about future generations in the way we live. 
What’s lacking is generativity, a generativity that will promote
positive values in the lives of the next generation.  Unfortunately,
we set the example of greed, wanting a bigger and better everything,
with no thought of what will make it a better world for our great-grandchildren.”
 
                       -Erik Erikson, at age 87
