Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Sixties Nostalgia Has Got to Go! - Saw some pictures from the demonstrations this weekend. My generation is rather pathetic. What is it about the 1960s that incites such a desire to copy every aspect of that decade? Did kids in the 1950s look longingly back at the flappers of the 1920s? Did kids in the 20s harbor secret desires for anti-Spanish American war protests?
An organization called Iraq Veterans Against the War has been formed. People are shouting the same tired slogans, dressing in the same old fashions. There's something wrong with a generation that cannot find its own voice and has to rely on the attitudes and protest tactics of a generation ago.
