There are two versions of history:
The version written and propagated by the powers of the world - the winners.
And then there is the truth.
The version of history put out by capitalists after the fall of communism in Russia - the End of History - lauds the winner, Ronald Reagan and his allies Generation X, and denigrates the Hippies, their political enemies.
But Ronald Reagan was a dark man.
He did not hesitate to use violence in Central America to defeat his political enemies. And he did not hesitate to use propaganda which demonized his political opponents.
He used Satan to win - he used the violence and evil in Generation X to intimidate and brainwash the Hippies calling them unamerican and wrongheaded.
So where is the truth?
The truth is that people who use violence and evil to win are not heroes but villains in the mold of Hitler and his thugs.
The victory of the right-wing capitalists is sustained by the media moguls who tell everyone what to think. Our news, T.V., movies, and sports are controlled by them.
But in the long run Ronald Reagan and Generation X will be seen for what they are - violent people who used evil to win.
