NOVEMBER 22nd, 1963"Your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions, and where there is no vision the people perish"." -Proverbs
The Kennedy assassination was the moment where the Boomer generation started to go off the rails.
Vietnam, the assassinations of Martin Luther King, jr. and Robert Kennedy, rioting, the New Left, the 1968 Democratic Convention, the Pentagon Papers, Watergate - all these events left their psychological mark. We can hardly see the deserts of Iraq for all the rice paddies that permeate the mental landscape of the mainstream media and senior government officials. Our presidential elections re-argue the events of a war that ended before most younger voters were even born.
Would things though, have come out much differently for America, had Kennedy lived ?
