By the 1970’s Germany and Japan had recovered from the war and had caught up to America economically taking back jobs that had been in the USA. At the same time the Boomers were starting to have kids whose future was likely not going to be as promising as there own. In reaction to this schools started giving everyone straight A’s and trophies for coming in last place!
The grand kids of the boomers will not only facing financial insecurity like their parents did but physical insecurity as well from the increasing threat coming from China. Their parents who have been trained to expect nicer outcomes will be far more likely follow the next peace in our time person then the next Churchill.
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
