Generational Amnesia

We are entering a period of time when today’s youth will be removed from much of the history that has shaped our culture. The consequence is that this generation will continue to replace the Modern and Postmodern ideology that formed our thought. This process disconnects us from the reality of the wars, failed social agendas and atrocities in the last century. It is replaced with a nieve optimism (reacting to the ignorant pessimism of postmodern thought) in the pluralistic (and often contradictory) mix of science vs. spirituality, freedoms vs. tolerance and individualism vs. community. I will post to expand on these observations.
