>Gen X is not the only generation around, is politically weak for its

Does size really matter that much? It's not the size that counts, it's how
you use it. Seriously. Fuck the voting system. We all know voting means
very little when bureaucracy is involved.

>and need not be an indicator of future generations to follow.

Why is that?

>"that book" predicts otherwise. Why do you hate it?

Exactly what you said. It's a bleak depressing look at the future. It's an
interesting concept but there are multiple things the book hasn't
meantioned that occurred but didn't fit into their meme. Besides each past
generation has had to become accustomed to the trends of the new. The
spiritual Awakening turn will not solve the problems meantioned in the
unraveling. Just because there alot of people complain about homosexuality
and how it conflicts with christianity won't mean that during the spiritual
awakening homosexuality will go away, people just adjust and become
accustomed to it and their so-called problems 'go away'. Catastrophic
events occur but they aren't linked to social behaviors. Also they meantion
that this book is an american true story. How does the rest of the world
fit into this? Many things going on around the world built up to WWII, it
had nothing to do with the state of society in the unraveling. If this
pattern were true, different societies all around the world would be in
different turns altogether due to cultural differences. How these turns
might interact could bring about different eras if this were true. But they
claim that all of society runs on this central clock. How do they explain
this? Celestial influences? Sunspots? Our location in relation to the rest
of the galaxy? Gravitational influences of the other planets? It's trash.
