Mr. Trexler riffs brilliantly on a Gifthub post on generational differences in activism and giving. Actually, for the record, I am pleased and proud my own kids turned out to be every bit as nice as the nice people their age blogging about philanthropy. My kids tell me, "What can we do, Dad? Protest does not work any more." I agree, we can do nothing, kids, get on with your job, career, romantic life, and next vacation. If the world goes as it is, these may be the years you look back on as surreal - when there were polar bears roaming the ice flows, when bees flew from hives, when tap water was potable, when $4 dollars bought a gallon of gas, and when speech was relatively free. As would any parent, I take pride my kids' achievements, and am glad they stay out of trouble with the authorities. I would be pleased if one or both were to study under Jeff Trexler, whether in law school or business school, and learn how to make an honest dollar in social ventures, while preserving their sense of social purpose and impotent irony. I only hope that those in charge serve in loco parentis. With such an obedient populace the responsibility to guide the tractable young must almost be unbearable. Maybe it is sedation that does it. Whatever it is, something seems to be working well in defense of the intolerable.
