“You see when you are middle class you have to live with the fact that history will ignore you. You have to live with the fact that history will never champion your causes and that history will never feel sorry for you. It is the price to be paid for day to day comfort and silence. And because of this all happinesses are sterile: all sadnesses go unpitied”
D Coupland in Generation X
With security, comfort and stability as prime values its no wonder history will ignore us. God help us to live beyond the banal tepid futility of middle class ness.
