Let's end Ageism!

  • 08/07/2019
  • Innovation for Ageing, Culture & Society

It's not the passage of time that makes it so hard to get older. It's ageism, a prejudice that pits us against our future selves -- and each other. Ashton Applewhite urges us to dismantle the dread and mobilize against the last socially acceptable prejudice. "Aging is not a problem to be fixed or a disease to be cured," she says. "It is a natural, powerful, lifelong process that unites us all."

This is sad - I was looking forward to watching this TED episode then I realised that it is American, about America and Americans.

They have a slightly different outlook on life compared with the rest of the world :)

I enjoyed watching TED and can agree with some of her comments - but logic and reality seem to be missing from her main theme of "ageing."
