You must have an extra chromosome, RE, because I've never heard of someone at your age having the openness of mind to question Mother Culture's continuous whisper in our ears, and do that since 2008. Amazing! I bow to you, Sir!
Thanks for the backhanded compliment.
This is about the 3rd
time I can remember where you implied that if you are a Boomer, ya just don't get it. Like a charicature of a 60s Hippy saying everybody over 50 wasn't Groovy and Hip. LOL.
Granted as you get older the tendency is toward more rigid thinking, but anyone who was a Free Thinker for their whole life tends to stay a FT. Surly here is older than me, and he gets it. Peter too.
From my side of the 50 yard line, I never cease to be amazed at how clueless the latest generation of 20-somethings is, sticking their bodies full of Pins and turning their skin into a Pop Art Canvas. Regardless of age, you have to be an Outta da Box thinker to ignore your daily dose of bullshit and figure it all out.
Solutions? There are none. Survival strategies with a bit better chances? Stoneleigh's Nine Points on how to build a lifeboat. How much better chances do The Nine offer? Probably not a lot better, but still, if you combine them with very, very low expectations, it might help.
I've heard Stoneleigh's 9 Points mentioned before, but I've never seen them listed. I went over to TAE to see if I could locate the original article on this, but they don't have a good Search Engine installed on the Forum. If somebody could point me to the article or list the 9 Points here I would appreciate it.
Far as the vid goes, I am on my slow connection with limited bandwidth so I don't watch long vids. I'll get to it when I am on free wi-fi.
Finally, I still wonder why you persist in guest posting? You clearly read the Diner more than most diners do, and you miss some good stuff going on at the Diner's Only tables. You wanna explain this to me?
