Money Men.

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.
