When Generation X and Ronald Reagan rebelled against the idealism of the Baby-Boomers they were backed up by the Money Men.
A return to materialism and right-wing politics suited their purpose perfectly.
And subsequently Ronald Reagan has been hailed as a hero and Generation X has been whitewashed by the mass media which is owned by the plutocrats.
Any deviance from this posture is attacked and ridiculed.
But Ronald Reagan is long gone.
And Generation X is old.
A new Generation of Millennials is rising and the idealism of the Baby-Boomers may return in some form.
Activism on the Internet and charity organizations are working for a fairer world.
There is a glimmer of hope.
Pray for us.
