the wisdom of the ages

Interesting to read the suggestion that some 'older people' are being re-educated out of their fuddy-duddy old ideas and values (particularly those related to sexual morality) by their 'own adult children.'  Now there's progress for you! It used to be that it was the older generation who passed on their wisdom to the younger; but the times, clearly, are a-changing. 

I wonder will those who think themselves wise in this generation be just as happy to sit and learn at the feet of their own children when the time comes - and discover that all their modern values (what is currently modern, that is) have become old-fashioned nonsense? That day must surely come; you cannot, after all, stop progress!
