The Death of the Grown-up
There will be no cultural recovery, no restoration, until America gets over its infatuation with perpetual adolescence. In this Michelle Malkin interview with Diana West, the author of “The Death of the Grown-up” argues that the decline of adulthood (and the resulting erosion of childhood) really began in the 1950s – not the 1960s as many conservatives like to think. I have a theory about that. The 1950s are inextricably tied to the birth of rock music, which is one of the primary forces responsible for “the death of the grown-up”. Conservatives who have a “hands off” attitude about the 1950s are usually motivated by their addiction to rock-n-roll.
Anyway, enjoy the interview:
