In 1990 the global consciousness grid was activated. You should read The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life by Drunvalo Melchizedek.
I recall 1990 very well and yes it did feel much different then the 80's. Much like how 2011 feels very different also.

February 2, 1989 - The last Soviet Union armored column leaves Kabul, ending 9 years of military occupation in Soviet-Afghan War.
July 31, 1989 – Nintendo releases the Game Boy portable video game system in North America.
November 9th, 1989 - The Berlin Wall falls down.
December 20, 1989 – Operation Just Cause was launched by the United States in an attempt to overthrow Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega. Which it did successfully.
August 2nd, 1990 - The Gulf War started when Iraqi forces under dictator Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, a tiny-oil riced country.
August 4th, 1990 - Kuwait was annexed as a province of Iraq.
So on so on,
There is plenty of research to go by.

WTC demolition planned in '80's
A demolition was actually planned out in detail for the twin towers in the 1980's. The planners engaged architects, developed estimates for a complete take-down and rebuild, and the architects drafted conceptual drawings.
The demolition of such gigantic steel structures, with their thick concrete floors, if lawfully performed in conformance with New York City codes, would have been an immensely arduous and expensive task and was estimated back then at $5.6 billion. (This included the slow and laborious task of cutting, with oxy-acetylene torches, the giant hardened steel members of the high-rise structures. In those days you could not so easily melt steel, as for example with kerosene, the official physics for this process having not been in place until a few weeks after September 11, 2001).
I watched such a New York demolition proceed on an old steel and concrete high-rise from my midtown office window at Third Avenue and 51st in the late 1960's. Using cutting torches, workers laboriously severed the old steel members into manageable sections one-by-one. Then they drilled holes into the thick concrete floors and placed small dynamite charges within. A huge ponderous steel net was laid down over the floor area to be blasted.
When the shrill warning whistle blew, I knew to swivel my chair toward the window. Then, bang, and the heavy steel net jumped. The net contained all the shattered concrete debris within. Workers hosed down the area with water to suppress the dust. Then the workers had to gather up the concrete chunks and cart them to funnels that conducted the debris down into dump trucks below. This went on for months, floor by floor.
The same slow, expensive, labor-intensive procedures would have been required had the twin towers been lawfully deconstructed.
In 1989 the architects assigned to the WTC demolition were told that the entire project had been cancelled and that their office, located in the WTC, was to be closed. One source states that someone told the architects that, "In 10 to 12 years they are going to blow it up and start over."
“In 1989 President George H. W. Bush began the multi-billion dollar Project Hammer program using an investment strategy to bring about the economic destruction of the Soviet Union including the theft of the Soviet treasury, the destabilization of the ruble, funding a KGB coup against Gorbachev in August 1991 and the seizure of major energy and munitions industries in the Soviet Union. Those resources would subsequently be turned over to international bankers and corporations. On November 1, 2001, the second operative in the Bush regime, President George W. Bush, issued Executive Order 13233 on the basis of “national security” and concealed the records of past presidents, especially his father’s spurious activities during 1990 and 1991. Consequently, those records are no longer accessible to the public.  The Russian coup plot was discussed in June 1991 when Yeltsin visited with Bush in conjunction with his visit to the United States. On that same visit, Yeltsin met discreetly with Gerald Corrigan, the chairman of the New York Federal Reserve. ”

I believe in the 1990 is when everything changed too. I can distinctively remember the fear of parents and sex offenders. This was the start of media claiming that sex offenders were around every corner. This is when kids stopped playing outside with neighbors. The whole 90's seemed like families became isolated from each other. This was also the time were parenting seemed to shift. Parents became extremely protective of their kids at that point.
I remember in the 80's growing up as a kid, it was fairly standard to respect adults. Even other parents scolding you for doing something in public that was wrong was standard, and no parents seemed to get upset. Spankings were common place still, even at that time.
I agree, though, in the 90's it all started changing quickly. We are at a point now where I question what planet I am living on. Fear has been pumped into the minds of the masses, and hate for each other appears rampant.
