Even the music was utlracool. This was approximately the peak of human civilization. We'll never return to being like this.

Was it just the Internet destroying human relationships or more than that?

What happened is that these high school kids had children of their own and didn't give a shit about them. As a result, their kids turned into circus freaks.

No that was our parents. This is Gen X and many of us had young People far more intelligent than millennials parents.

Everythings ripe for a new crop of young mao footsoldiers
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77568399


And think of how many people in general, older ones included, have a soft spot in their heart for a Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. Much less the Joe Bidens/Obamas/Clintons of America.

All because too many people don't know, understand or care about the true dark nature of liberal/leftwing biases.

vigilantism will return.

people will stop living in cities

eventually parents will want for a life in the country side and home school their kids.

agrarian barter culture will return to america

Re: Random American High School in 1989: Such vitality, happiness, vigor...What happened to us?
BlOOMERS happened.

- horrible, selfish parents

- cannibal capitalism, diminished job prospects

- media saturation

- cultural polarization.

- families broke and broken.

- SAD diet, additives, high fructose corn syrup, obesity

- glorification of alcohol and drugs in movies

I came of age at that time. Parents were raging, self-absorbed narcissists. In every job there was someone 10 to 20 years older barring the door to opportunity, characterizing all Xers as slackers or lazy. Wgeeling, dealing, cheating. The same generation fleeced their parents, treated them like crap while structuring their estates to stick it to their own kids.

Re: Random American High School in 1989: Such vitality, happiness, vigor...What happened to us?
Many factors. 911 being a key one. I was a 90s high school kid and it seemed it was beginning to turn then. But one thing I remember different than the kids of the 80s was a removal of morality from school combined with removal of consequences. Then they pumped in education rife with narcissistic promotion. Hell kids used to carry shotguns to school. Then that stopped after a few government sanctioned school shootings.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35741584


Schools and students are being deliberately social-engineered today, versus 1989 when it was still the previous basics of education.

Or did everyone just change overnight and become laisse-faire moral relativists?

Re: Random American High School in 1989: Such vitality, happiness, vigor...What happened to us?
this was the end as far as I am concerned

Bam was born Sept. 1979 when I was still in high school

he was the product of older baby People far more intelligent than millennials parents

somehow our culture thought it would be cute to host a tv show where the son beats the living shit out of his father in ambushes and America ate it up like the mental junkfood it is

[link to www.youtube.com (secure)]

this is the generational breakdown between parents/children that the X'ers epitomize. Complete hatred of their elders.

they came home from school to watch Jerry Springer's guests beat the shit out of babydaddies with the chairs on the tv set, People's Court dysfunction, Clinton laughing about blowjobs in the 'oral office'.

We have never been able to climb out of that toilet that administration put us in. Bill and Hillary are literally the poster children for the "Ok People far more intelligent than millennialss" retorts.

These kids are fundamentally enraged and have been since elementary school. Bam should have been arrested for abuse.

Oh and for the millennial's wondering how I owned a Trans Am and a Truck. At the age of 14 I got my "Hardship Driver's License" and I worked 2 jobs 7 days a week. Veterinarian Clinic cleaning cages and feeding animals in the morning before school and in the evenings after school for $2.00 an hour (Below minimum wage) and then I sacked groceries and stocked the shelves at the local grocery store for $3.35 an hour. 7 days a week.

oh for the love of God Trin, you censor the word Bloomer too?

The parents born in the Truman/Ike years are very different from the parents born in the Kennedy/Johnson years.

Truman/Ike kids were the Woodstock generation and rebelled, did not want to be like their WW2 era parents at all.

But Kennedy/Johnson kids were too young for Vietnam/Woodstock and basically we raised our children on the same classic rock that we grew up with, we have far less generational gap with them than the previous decade's parents.

I will agree 100 percent that Bloomer greed is coming back to bite everyone born after 1957, Illinois will go bankrupt with 300 different pension plans to feather all their nests
