What nonsense times we live in, full of nonsense easy answers. Somehow everyone simply thinks, “Gosh, generations before me must have been stupid. Life is so easy! A couple of buzzwords and some inspiring quotes!”
Nonsense. There will be many reckonings for a generation. And then the pendulum will swing, full speed, in the other direction once again. It has already begun to do so, as evidenced by recent mass movements in politics.
The current crop of 30-somethings has been the ’70s “me generation” all over again. The return of Reagan’s revolution is next, with a resurgence of traditional values. Generation Y is already showing signs. Another generation down the road and it will be here.
