The thing about so many of our youth nowadays is that they’re not especially youthful, at least not in the way we imagined we were back in the day. You hardly ever see an unkempt youth kicking over a wheelie bin in reckless exuberance, a display of pointless rebellion, as we might have done. For most middle-class youth today, the closest they get to lighting a fire is when they wheel out the new Weber for the in-laws on a Sunday afternoon. ..

There’s never been a more important time to support independent media.

From World War 1 to present-day cosmopolitan South Africa and beyond, the Sunday Times has been a pillar in covering the stories that matter to you.

For just R80 you can become a premium member (digital access) and support a publication that has played an important political and social role in South Africa for over a century of Sundays. You can cancel anytime.
