Thousands of you in the past 6 years have seen my presentation on the 40-year pendulum of society so you know that we're currently in the first full year following a six-year transition into a “no-posing, no phoniness” Civic outlook. I told you in 2003 that by 2008 we would openly be making fun of romanticized hype. Do you remember the famous 1983 music video, Total Eclipse of the Heart? (1983, you will recall, was the zenith of the last Idealist generation.) Here it is, overdubbed with new lyrics sung by a clear-eyed Civic generation. It's already had a million and a half views on Youtube.
