No Boundaries

Mandolyna Theodoracopulos writes about what is wrong with America today, tying it in with the Beatnik generation. I could not have said it better myself. I get so tired of repeatedly hearing the F-word every time I watch a contemporary film. People seem to be sadly lacking in a basic vocabulary with which to express their emotions. Share

Your Posts on Jeanne De'Arc are in such contrast to the legacy of the 'Baby Boomers' of 'tune in, turn on and drop out'. There is a difference between protesting for change and working to reform. The 19th and early 20th Century middle and upper middle class reformers did not sit around protesting. Many of them laid their life on the line to bring about change. There were not enough of us to balance the raging iconoclasts of that generation. We stood by aghast at their antics hoping our children would not model their behavior, trusting that age and some real life experiences would bring them to their senses. But instead it has left us with a society of unsettled people who in various forms 'tune in, turn on and drop out'.
