Re: 2003?

I see. I just never thought of the events of 2003 having the same effect as the events of 2008. And my uncle, whom I'm close to and who is the quintessential Artist (born 1942), didn't retire until 2007. And I think of the Artist Colin Powell who was Secretary of State up until 2005. I actually like...

2003?

I missed it if it was discussed elsewhere. I see from the weblog that John believes that the Fourth Turning began in 2003. Why then?

Re: Millennials

I don't buy any of it. I'm a Gen-Xer, born in 1963. I work in federal law enforcement, and we have been hiring Millennials in large numbers beginning in about 2009. They are a pleasure to work with. Strauss & Howe hit the nail on the head in describing them. They, in just a few years have change...

Re: NYT article on Trump today

I didn't see the article, although I did hear chatter in the media about it. Did it say anything about Clinton's ties to black supremacist groups, or La Raza, or various female supremacist groups? It's all part of a fourth turning return to essentials. The US is essentially a white Christian civiliz...

Re: 9-Nov-14 World View - 25th anniversary - fall of Berlin Wall

Tactical nukes aren't exactly what most people have in mind when you talk about going nuclear. The damage would be much more limited that what was seen in 1945 and most of the destruction would have been limited to military targets.

They may not all be Boomers, but Boomers invented this crap and the other participants are trying to be Boomeresque.

Re: 9-Nov-14 World View - 25th anniversary - fall of Berlin

Just because this period is our generational crisis era doesn't mean that it's Russia's generational crisis era. In fact, Russia is likely entering an awakening era. Witness the antics of Pussy Riot. Studying Russian history it seems to me that Russia's crisis periods have a critical element of civi...
