Ideals.


In the 1960s the baby-boomer generation set out to save the world through peace and love and socialist politics.

Little did we know that the rock bands and superstars who hijacked this revolution would sabotage our efforts and sell us out.

Hedonism, promiscuity, drugs, and divorce flowed from the music we listened to.

After the 1980s, when the political climate turned against us, the idealism of our generation was almost dead.

Now we hear about materialism and pleasure, hardline politics and sin.

The only glimmer of hope is activist sites on the internet.

Environmental campaigns and political challenges are appearing every day.

Although the effectiveness of these campaigns is limited at least there is some hope.

Not all of our ideals are dead.
