state, local youths fell into immorality. Indeed, the state had increasingly concerned itself with combating youth immorality and delinquency since the late 1800s.192 Thus, the situation of a German occupation undermined not only the authority of the Republic and the reputation of France but also the prospects for future generations. The Germans themselves expressed concern about youth delinquency. Von Graevenitz wrote to the Mayor of Lille in May 1917, stating that recently children had caused ‘significant damage’ to railway lines, by pulling apart fences and walls

Britain conducted in a more tangible way by previous generations. As Tina puts it, ‘The wars weren’t won for us … to give our country away … Them wars were won for future generations.’ Indeed, for Tim, respect for war veterans is an anti-fascist statement that distinguishes the EDL from extreme nationalist groups such as the National Front whom he describes as ‘Nazis’: ‘the whole point of the EDL is about protecting like the honour of troops and respecting like the sacrifice that was made and it’s just like for anybody to be a Nazi is an absolutely sworn enemy of

Ethnographic film-makers were intensely aware of these processes and sought through their work to preserve a record of these vulnerable cultural practices for future generations. But anything that hinted at authorship in this form of film-making was thought to compromise the archival value of the material recorded.

, which resulted in a new Swedish marriage act in 1915 – the Act on the Celebration and Dissolution of Marriage. In the discussions that preceded the legislation, race-biological views were clearly expressed. New medical impediments to marriage were introduced, and the justification of the new law stated that its purpose was to protect ‘future generations, in the interest of maintaining and improving the human race’. The desire was to ‘both promote the marriage frequency in the best of our members and prevent the procreation of the inferior’ in order to ‘gain the most

For the attempted exchange, just like incestuous relationships, ends without any exchange at all: Brontë ensures this with the future generation, a mirror of Catherine and Heathcliff who unite the properties of Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights and choose to live at the Grange. Rather than property being exchanged and expanded on, the social world becomes ever smaller
