The General Disregard For Experience (Circa 2000)
From 'Impact of Decline' part of 'A Study Of Our Decline' by P Atkinson

The greater the experience a man has in using a skill, the more capable he becomes in applying that skill, so the best people to apply skills to realise achievements are those with the greatest experience. But only the unselfish are concerned about achievements, the selfish care only about their  feelings, which insensibly revere  youth and beauty  over  age and experience. The following list of newspaper articles confirms the general contempt for experience (and hence achievement).
