Init. Also worth mentioning that such a blanket statement will never also be true throughout the world.

That's a good point. But then, if we look at it from the perspective of gender, males enjoyed more choice and freedom back in the day than today. Hence, an absolute view wouldn't stand a chance either way.

Both perspectives could be true. The selfie generation, for example, could reveal the growing narcissistic culture, or - it could say how far we've come through technology. Those annoying people who'd click selfies with a monkey's ass do exist. So, where is the balance?

These questions are tough to answer, hence, why Unis are spending loads of money into research and analysis.

My original point stands though. I found this article helpful:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/ ... n-y-income

It's from an economical point of view, but reflects the way our society is changing.

Here's also something revealing:
"Economics is important, but culture plays a crucial role too," says Steven Mintz, a historian at the University of Texas at Austin. "In the past, people aspired to be older. The dominant culture was an adult culture, which was associated with sophistication, worldliness and experience. Today, that has been inverted. Youth culture is the ideal - most people aspire to be younger, not older, and it is youth culture that is seen as more thrilling than anything that adulthood has to offer.

"No-one says 'Life begins at 40' any more, at least not without irony."


So, what Bellerin and co are doing is mere representation of this theory. Nonetheless, this is also happening increasingly today:

I remember when I was in my 20s, studying in college, I thought that when I was a 30-something I would be married, with family, with kids, and with a very stable job. Now I'm in my 40s and none of that happened.

There are no definite answers and to assume so would be preposterous. Just a food for thought. ;)

Bellerin is going to destroy society as we know it, like a B grade Bond villain, but with no Bond around to stop him.
