We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Interesting conjecture... but I had some difficulties with their populating of the various archetypes. The largest being Andrew Jackson as a member of the 'Silent' generation. A generation which includes this definition...
"subtle, indecisive, emotional and compromising, and often have to deal with feelings of repression and inner conflict."
Now agreed, Jackson did feel repressed by Britain and Spain... so he went out and kicked their ass. That then resolved his inner conflict.
As an individual A. Jackson would be about as far removed from that descriptor as could be possible. It leads me to question the thoroughness of their research.
Barrister: I have had my fair share of a "Very" fine red-so this argument will not be well made. I will tell you simply this: to the best of my understanding the "hippie" kids have had a far more negative impact than any positive contribution they might have made. The issue of race and segregation was bubbling so close to the surface a fly could have broken open that scab. With regard to equal rights for women: these people have taken this issue to the criminally corrupt. The impact has been noticeable--but, not lasting, nor has the contribution been one of quality. On the other side the destruction they have caused is, I believe, without precidence (sp?)for one generation.
