Thanks for that interesting post. It's a shame you didn't get more replies by now, this topic deserves it.
Okay, to put it even 'stronger': a lot of people from the 'Baby Boom Generation' (and a bit beyond that) think that the world started in the 1960's. In general I find that most people who lived through the misery of the 30's have more character and autonomy. The 1960's breathe this odor of spinelessness, mediocrity and declining values.
Yes, there is a God - no, mothers should take care of the children - music didn't start with the Beatles or the Stones.. Today's critics are most propable a result of the 60's.
