The Grey Revolution is a two-pronged revolution. From the 19th century onwards our longevity doubled. At the same time, fewer and fewer children are born. The graying and greening of society coincide.
Employers prefer young people because they seem to be cheaper. In the queue for the supermarket checkout, it is ‘always’ those oldies who cause delays. Prejudice is easy and abundantly present.
Like most revolutions, this ‘grey’ one has a tremendous impact on societies. Despite popular views, these impacts are predominantly positive. This needs some explaining.
