Teenagers: What can we do? Brisbane judge: Get a life!

Mawkish teenagers listen up. A Brisbane judge has a message for you:
Always we hear the cry from teenagers. What can we do? Where can we go? My answer is: Go home. Mow the lawns — wash the windows, learn to cook, build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study your lessons and after you have finished, read a book!

Your town does not owe you recreation facilities, your parents do not owe you fun. The world does not owe you a living...
[Part of a letter to teenagers from a judge in the Brisbane Juvenile Court. You can read more at Richard's Benzylpiperazine blog]

  1. "Promoting capitalist acts between consenting adults" ... "Exploit the Earth or Die"

    I love those slogans!

    Great words of advise by that Judge indeed. Lay off the psychoactives and get in touch with reality instead. Go even further and make a positive contribution to reality!
