Generation to Generation.

Fear has been handed down from generation to generation.

The generation born in the 1930s and 1940s grew up during the Great Depression and World War II.

Fear made them compromise their principles and embrace a materialistic philosophy.

After the secure economic conditions of the 1950s and 1960s their children (Generation X) encountered inflation and a recession which triggered their inherited fears.

Generation X sold out all ethical considerations in their pursuit of financial security.

Intimidation, violence, and evil at their hands saw society swing wildly to the right.

"Nightmare on Elm Street". "Friday the 13th", "The Silence of the Lambs", "Blood Sucking Freaks", "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre".....

"Material Girl", "Like a Virgin", "Bad", "Thriller", "Cream", "Show no Mercy", "Kick", "The Devil Inside".....

Saw them brag that they were pure evil.

They embraced Satan and the dark side.

Blasphemy and transgression became fashionable.

And money was their god.

Ronald Reagan harnessed their violence to reconstruct the Baby-Boomers whose idealism and socialism was deemed a threat to economic prosperity.

We were blamed and disgraced, intimidated and coerced.

But the Baby-Boomers were innocent.

History is written by the winners.

Ronald Reagan is a hero of Capitalism.

And Generation X has been whitewashed.

But the fact remains that they turned to evil and the devil to win.
