Well ya know, what have been referred to "yuppies" are the children of many of the "hippies". Peace and love exists, but it needs money for survival. Now, power, and income seem to be the increments of success, and as far as I'm concerned, it is having a detrimental effect on our society. But, I see reality creeping back into the consciousness of the ambitious, because this country cannot compete, consequently survive if the wages continue to escalate, the housing costs continue to escalate, and the kids are sort of just left to society to provide a place for them until one of the parents gets home. Then the parents are so overburdened with fiscal and social responsibility, they just sorta mollify their children, and have no idea what the kids are participating in. One parent should always be available for the children. Whoever makes the most money should work, the other stay home for the kids, lower their goals, live within their means, and listen to what their kids are saying. Now that is peace and love.
