    happened in the 80's?

    RayGun started his Reign of Terror.

    Yuppies gave up pretending they were gonna change the world and bought in to buying, buying, buying.

    There was a lot of escapist music.

    There wasn't much from the population, other htan acceptance of the status quo or ... ignoring the status quo.

    There was escapist music.

    We had a bubble fueled by exploding federal debt so the Military Industrial Complex could steal.  

    We had a give away of financial stability so wall street thieves could steal.

    While I was drunk a lot from '80 to '84, ummm...

    wtf were the 80's good for? Dukakis and the DLC and the Clintons? John Roberts, Rummy and Darth?

    MJ, if anything, epitomized the soul-less drift in our purposely frayed communities.

      there were also a fair number of sociologists warning us that this is where we end up if we didn't start thinking about other people besides ourselves.
      Not all of the "80's teens" ignored that.
