I delve into the book Boomers – The Men and Women Who Promised Freedom and Delivered Disaster by Helen Andrews.
I was not impressed. Sure she is critical of the boomers. But this was not the book I expected. The first chapter is the best as she examines the boomers overall and from a distance.
After that each chapter is devoted to a specific boomer, half of whom I’ve never hear of before, and nearly all of whom I don’t care about. I made it through the chapter on Steve Jobs, started the next chapter, and found myself too bored to continue.
Yes, the boomers she singles out are pieces of shit. For example Camille Paglia. Here is an except on this femistatist from Wikipedia.
In 1993, Paglia signed a manifesto supporting NAMBLA, a pederasty and pedophilia advocacy organization. In 1994, Paglia supported lowering the legal age of consent to fourteen. She noted in a 1995 interview with pro-pedophile activist Bill Andriette “I fail to see what is wrong with erotic fondling with any age.”
In a 1997 Salon column, Paglia expressed the view that male pedophilia correlates with the heights of a civilization, stating “I have repeatedly protested the lynch-mob hysteria that dogs the issue of man-boy love. In Sexual Personae, I argued that male pedophilia is intricately intertwined with the cardinal moments of Western civilization.” Paglia noted in several interviews, as well as Sexual Personae, that she supports the legalization of certain forms of child pornography.
She later had a change of heart on the matter. In an interview for Radio New Zealand’s Saturday Morning show, conducted on April 28, 2018 by Kim Hill, Paglia was asked, “Are you a libertarian on the issue of pedophilia?”, to which she replied, “In terms of the present day, I think it’s absolutely impossible to think we could reproduce the Athenian code of pedophilia, of boy-love, that was central to culture at that time… We must protect children, and I feel that very very strongly.
The age of consent for sexual interactions between a boy and an older man is obviously disputed, at what point that should be. I used to think that fourteen (the way it is in some places in the world) was adequate. I no longer think that. I think young people need greater protection than that. … This is one of those areas that we must confine to the realm of imagination and the history of the arts.”
And yes, the boomers she specifically profiles in this book did a bit extra to help destroy Western Civilization. The problem is that Andrews’ writing simply didn’t get me to care about her opinion.
And thus the rule stands. Don’t read books written by women.
Andrews is right about the boomers but that alone doesn’t make for a good book.
Send some commies to Canada. They said they would go if the Trumpenfuhrer was elected President but they are too dumb to figure out Canada is to the north and too poor to get there ’cause they have liberal arts degrees. Commies To Canada.
