re: #331 Belafon

You’re looking at a tree. Think of the forest. Let’s try it this way: How often does a Frank Sinatra song end up back on the charts? Never, and the reason is that the subsequent generation, Boomers, completely replaced that generation in culture. What is not true is the following generation replacing it, because the Boomers were a much larger generation.

Don’t think too much into my rant, though. I’m not losing sleep over it. It’s just when you think of the direction generations get to try to take a country, newer generations are still fighting the old ones longer than before.

The notion of a war between the generations is one of the stupider American memes. The largest disco in our province had a rock venue upstairs and a ballo liscio hall for the kids’ parents downstairs. Good soundproofing kept Sinatra and Eros Ramazatti isolated. Most people in the world don’t feel obliged to hate their parents or children.
