Growth, Not Destruction

552.03Question: We see that each generation that comes into this world is more egoistic and cruder than the previous one. It denies the values of the previous generation. Why?

Answer: It does not deny. It just needs new values.

It seems to us that the next generation should break the previous one. Yet, it does not deal with the destruction of the old one, it just deals with itself and builds a new one. Whereas revolutionaries here and there wanted to destroy everything old, this is what was bad.

However, if it happens not through revolution, but as development in itself, then it involves growth, not destruction.
