sometimes there are generations with way too many people and then there are ones with not so many, but then there's usually a rebound one that's nearly as big as the one before. the smaller generations are usually called lost generations. except ours who get to be called "x".
right now, I am going to send a great big fuck you to the generation sandwiched in between the wwii and baby boomers. I used to feel we had something in common with them, but everyone of them i've ever met was a resentful asshole against anyone younger than themselves. they could surely see how the boomer assholes we treating us, but instead of being a little kind, they gleefully joined right in... I know your generational icons were killed off as well, but whatever. no empathy in means no empathy out.
we get it, we're alone in this. that's why we have so many cowardly sell outs. guess what, you are still one of us whether you want to be or not. everyone knows it. hope that fronting works out for you though.
then there's the baby boomers who think they are so great. yeah, we KNOW how nasty you can be. I have to get it from my own fucking siblings. if your own family can't behave, well...
yeah, hang on to everything the wwii generation handed you on a silver platter. break my heart.
my parents WERE the wwii generation. but after they died, there wasn't a lot they could do. but, even though my own family won't believe me, I appreciate what they did for me.
also, I kept secrets... I never told daddy about the truth of project paperclip. because why MAKE THE POINT that wwii ws fought for some bullshit reason we haven't been told. because hello, the nazis are here. but, oh lord, back when my brother used to treat my father like total shit he would have said it. if he knew it. who knows if he's caught on yet.
all my childhood pictures are lost. the tapes my mother made for me are lost... were lost before I ever heard them. no one but my own family ever had access to this stuff.
that's mind kontrolle. that's how it works people. tell one generation how great, special, and smart they are. tell them how it's o.k. to hurt people if "you're making a point" or "being honest", tell them other people are "nowhere" and they believe it. forever. my thinking is probably fucked up, too, just in a different way. they let people film lsd trips as children's entertainment back in the day. I never liked that stuff.
maybe because I have been around some asshole who has used the stuff. people talked about all kinds of stuff in front of me when I was a kid because it was really easy to ignore me. I was small.
