the power of "whatev–ah!

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/6523155.stm

it’s a depressing symbol of an alienated generation

Teachers say they have had enough because it’s constantly used to challenge their authority

By uttering it young people are opting out of communicating and avoiding the use of language

It builds a brick wall around a world that you cannot reach into but that person can reach out of, if they wish to.
