I Gave It All Away
Will Self argues that instead of holding onto money until old age, we should give children their inheritance when they're most in need of it.
"Forget the old right/left, rich/poor division" he says, "nowadays the greatest divergence lies between the old and the young".
And he asks how can we in conscience go on denying the young the opportunity to clear up the mess we've ? for the most part quite inadvertently ? created for them. "Give it all away!" is his plea.
