Show me a culture that despises young and old alike
The ever-lucid Mark Shea wonders about the contrast between Madonna the rockstar and WNBA star Candace Parker. http://markshea.blogspot.com/2009/02/more-of-those-western-values-we-are.html here is his comment and link:

Pursue and promote endless casual sex, you are lionized and made a millionaire multiple times over.

Get married and have a baby, you are vilified as "selfish".

Show me a culture that despises virginity, and I will show you a culture that despises children.

Myself, I wonder about the contrast between the alleged benevolence of the new socialist America under our New 'New Deal', and the cool ruthlessness to be shown to the graying baby boomers as they age.
