The hippie generation destroyed the American family and shamed a once great nation.
Really now, are you sure the Hippie Generation conspired to reduce the living wage, slowly transfer all lucrative blue collar union high paying labor
jobs overseas, while hiding inflation in cheap substandard foreign made goods, while methodically busting up the unions. You have heard of the unions,
those communist, Marxist oriented labor movements where people used collective bargaining power to ensure they be paid a living real wage.
So was it the hippies who couldn’t stand the unions, or was it the corporate oligarchs who couldn’t stand having to pay people a living wage.
Was it because the hippies couldn’t stand the freedom that having real money in your pocket and the leisure opportunities and options it buys you,
or was it because the Political establishment didn’t want people having enough money in their pockets to be able to afford to do silly things like
say, travel to Washington D.C. to protest a corrupt and unjust government?
My money is on the corporate oligarchs there and the political establishment that transferred all the jobs over seas beginning with U.S. Steel in the
very early 70’s and then moving on to the Auto Industry, that surprise, surprise was transferred to Japan, the same place where the Steel was that
is used to make cars. What a coincidence huh? Amazing that while the hippies were smoking pot, enjoying free love, and massive music festivals they
managed to export the Steel and Car Industries overseas at the same time.
The truth is only the highest middle income bracket Americans could afford to keep two parents at home by the beginning of the 1980’s and the
Corporate Oligarchs are still working at destroying what’s left of the Middle Class.
Just think maybe angry people like yourself could have prevented this if you only were observant enough to think intellectually and figure out who is
really responsible for the things you decry.
So who destroyed the American family? Clueless people, who accept establishment provided explanations at face value, who foolishly fear people who are
different than them, and are inclined to believe anything about them, in order to justify their own dysfunctional lifestyle and thinking.
Might want to look in the mirror for a culprit on who destroyed the American Family!
There is no way to spin this, although some on this thread will try their dead-level best to do it.
Doesn't seem to be stopping you from trying to spin a lot of serious problems as being the responsibility of people who in no way shape or form,
actually did, or could do the things, that led to what you are lamenting.
Lamenting and do nothing about except playing the blame game by placing the blame on the wrong quarter.
Perhaps this is the true legacy of the 60's "movement." Nothing more than a feel-good ideology and that morphed into moral relativism and a
wholesale cultural pathology that allows justification, rationalization and intellectualization of anything.
Some would say your comments are nothing but feel-good ideology aimed at making you feel better with simple, nonsensical and illogical explanations of
historical, social, economic and geopolitical events you seem to have hardly no grasp of at all.
So that is exactly what you are doing, justifying your own acceptance of these tragic and unfortunate events dealing with the decline of America while
living in wholesale denial that it was the Corporate Titans and a corrupt Political Establishment and its highest levels that began contriving to do
these things, beginning with the Federal Reserve act in 1911, decades upon decades before the Hippies even showed up on the scene.
While yes its an attempt to rationalize what you clearly don't understand its not actually rooted intellectually in anything but base prejudice,
paranoia and wholesale slander.
Sending the wrong suspect to jail doesn't actually punish who is truly responsible for a crime, and it certainly doesn't prevent the actual criminal
from still getting away with more crimes, which is why the American Treasury is being looted right under your nose by the International Banking Cartel
and the Constitution being turned into toilet paper by the Military Industrial Complex fighting the phony war on Terror.
Please don't quit your day job to become a detective!
We see through your lies and propaganda, hippies. We pity you and despise everything that you have ever stood for.
Actually this kind of sounds like the work of a schill for the very corporations and corrupt government that has in fact conspired to do, and has done
all the things you are complaining about...
So right back at you there!
