Everything is Broken.


In 1989 when Generation X had done their worst and destroyed the idealism and spirituality of the 1960s and 1970s Bob Dylan released a song called Everything is Broken.

The refrain expressed perfectly the spirit of the time for the Baby-Boomer Generation whose hopes and dreams had been shattered.

In the time since the Baby-Boomers' rock legends have been resurrected but without the original idealism and spirituality.

Back in black.

The Baby-Boomers now look after their grand children and their ageing parents, go on expensive overseas holidays, watch must see T.V., and follow sports.

Small glimmers of idealism appear on the Internet.

It is up to us to fan this tiny spark into a raging fire.
