If you look back at our history, you can see that the moral demise of our society started back in the 60's with the liberal hippies. That's when the majority started to appease everyone else through political correctness. This, in turn has stifled our thought process. Their music was great, but their ideology was way off.

Oh yeah....my parents. I love them dearly, but we really don't see eye to eye when it comes to politics.

I used to be a firm believer in this idea as well. That is until I began reading up on just how liberating the WWI generation became during the 1920's.

As far as hippies go. How can we call the so-called Greatest Generation the greatest when it was them who sprung the hippy "baby boomer" generation. I judge a generation by their offspring and by that measure in my opionion the so-called "Greatest Generation" F*cked up big time!!! By the way I would have been a baby boomer if my parents had gotten with it and had kids when they were supposed to. But the way things turned out they had us later in life, making my brothers and I the heart of Generation X.

If you ask me I think my latch-key generation has realised a lot of the mistakes made within the last 40 years and I see a lot of the young Gen Z being raised with more family time and I also see more younger Gen Y'ers embrassing religion more than my generation ever did, at least that's my observation. Hopefully things will come full circle, only time will tell.

I have mixed feelings on this WH. I believe a generation should be judged by their own accomplishments. Parents are only responsible for their kids up to a certain age and beyond that we all must make our own way. I think technology and society has made two generations of people with a sense of entitlement. It's only when the bills come due and the rent needs to be paid that we begin to realize no one is going to live our lives for us and make our living for us.

In other words it's only as our mettle begins to be tested that we begin to show our true worth. The greatest generation had the advantage of having an obvious and up front enemy to test their mettle against. Our times are a bit more confusing and our enemies more obscure in their tactics. Time will tell.

I forget who it was that said, "If you're young and conservative, you have no heart. But if you're old and liberal, you have no head."
