Necrothreading much?

Article content

Jules Crittenden gives Woodstock a good and well deserved trashing, in his usual shock and awe style. Here's an appetizer:
"Hedonism wrapped in misguided self-righteousness and hypocritical idealism. Living like there's no tomorrow while pretending you're making the future a better place."
Emphasis mine.

The more I look at those baby-boomed hippies—and the pathetic spiritual offspring they seem to have spawned nowadays (freeloading freetards and neo-Communists, climate-reversing witch doctors and various tenants of a doctrine-guided science Lysenkoism, multiculture cultists & other moral relativists—the more I find myself okay with being a Generation-Xer stuck in between.

Even though being young in 80s' France sucked way beyond proportions— remember that, unlike the US and the UK, that's when the French decided to go dead on Socialism and elected one of the worst of their own, François Mitterrand.

But hey, I suppose that's in part what gave me a certain edge when it comes to swallowing Collectivist horseshit and going with the herd. What doesn't kill you makes you straggler.

I own, built and run this place. In a previous life I was not French but sadly, I died.

2hotal9 - not exactly. I was in college at the time of Woodstock and quit in 1970 with a lottery number of lucky 17. As you might imagine it wasn't long before I got my notice.

I could not agree more, Diss - having lived through those times as a New York City cop. I never ceased to be amused by these great unwashed claiming to be "peaceful", while at the same time rioting in the streets.

That's it right there -- the stunningly self-satisfied hypocrisy and phoney righteousness. I could add the total lack of thought and stultifying ignorance while perceiving oneself as an intellectual due to higher "education" (read: living off Mom and Dad for as long as possible in order to stay the eternal kiddie, er student) is mighty annoying as well.

We should have declared war on them; we really should have.

[as an English major, and member of that most benighted of college departments -- a person who believes in the inherent need for and goodness of reading books and thinking/writing about them -- I find myself like the proverbial man without a country; these freaking hippies long ago destroyed my profession and are now in the process of destroying everything else...I can't stand the frakkers (plus the drippy riff into "Rocky Mountain High" just pushed my ludicrously asinine and idiotic button; that much stupidity should be painful for anyone engaging in it). Wanna know why Western civ is losing? There's yer sign!]

I missed it and grew up under the Reagan regime. Lucky, I guess.

Anybody who is under 30 that is a conservative has no heart, anybody over 30 who isn't one has no brain. Churchill couldn't be more right again. As myself a kid from the boomers I must say that the people who shares my birth year are appallingly ignorant to the world, the image they have of Amsterdam is the one from 1970, Eurabia, not a clue.

Thanks to the mother-state here in Quebec the boomer generation is now teaching to their own kids multiculticrap with the so called ethical religious courses who teaches "everyone has be tolerated even if they hate you" and they can't be opted out as regular religious classes, it's mandatory to learn to submit.
