The 1980s

I've been devouring all things Thatcher this morning. Having been born in 1980, that decade was sort of lost on me in real time. It doesn't get the same press as the 40s and 60s, but it was such a volatile, fearful time that allowed for some idiots to gain power. The Cold War, Neo Conservatives, AIDS, the rise of religion, globalization.

We, as humans, despite our elevated brains, are really just scared prey afraid of lions, tigers, and bears.

New Wave, Dynasty, Falcon Crest, elegance.

OP, I'm glad to call you a peer. I was born in 1980 too and your post is spot-on.
