The Mess That Is Our World

Let's face it, THE WORLD IS IN A MESS and you are inheriting it.
Generation Y, you are on the cusp. You are the group facing many problems: abject poverty, global warming, genocide, Aids, and suicide bombers to name a few. These problems exist, and the world is silent. We have done very little to solve these problems. Now, we leave it to you. You have to fix it because the situation is intolerable.

-Kirk Douglas on his 90th birthday

There is, however, a motive behind the altruism. In March Douglas publishes his 9th book, a non-fiction work entitled Let's Face It: 90 Years of Living, Loving and Learning. The open letter, more of a press release, has had the desired effect. Anyone who took the actor's advice at the weekend found that Kirk Douglas was the top entry on Google's news section.
