Not really. More like a hint of no alternative.

I suspect things are required to take generations because after a while of screwing over others in the world in order to accumulate things me-wards people have kids and they want the world to be a nicer place for them.

In one generation we have the 'cast your spores to the wind and see what survives to look after you'. In another generation we have 'invest in your child and undermine other children so the world is better for your child'. In another generation we have 'invest in your child and invest in your tiny local community so the world is better for your child'. In another generation we have 'invest in your child, your local community, and the world a little further afield because you never know where your child will end up / want to go out there'. And in this way cognitive capacity improves / increases. The development of empathy, or some such.

Maybe that's why people keep going on about things having to take generations.

If things have to take generations, then I think this country owes me a graceful death with dignity in the nearish future. I mean, if it won't let me accomplish anything in my lifetime because they are absolutely insistant on that...
