Today I found out about a film/documentary called Teenage: The Creation of Youth Culture , from Matt Wolf and Jon Savage (also made a book with the same name). Is amazing to see how the whole culture was born in the 20th century and how it developed and also make us think how this is going to be in this new century...
However something else come to my mind, youth is the most precious thing for our society since the beginning of civilization, preservation of the body, soul and it's so ironic that experience and wisdom are also praised but is almost impossible to have both at the same time.
Not talking about beauty, but youth. Being young and restless, that's what beautiful, even ignorance and naivety. The teenager are the ones with heart of a lion and still open minded to fight for what they believe, fresh ideas and more questioning, "why not?", "the sky is the limit", all over history we saw Hippies, Punks, Mods etc... living life and maybe that is what people admire.
