There has only really been one person throughout my entire life that I've ever been able to rely on at any time:
What this does not amount to is that everyone in the world is untrustworthy. What you have to appreciate is that not many people under the age of 30 are particularly concerned with anything outside the self. I don't think it's by any means exclusive to this generation, more so that it's endemic to young people generally. Suffice to say that not every youngster grows out of it.
This isn't a piss and whine. What it is, is a reminder that trust is to be placed in the self before others.
