Our parents were tempted and disillusioned by more fantastic inventions and dazzling advertisements than their parents' generation. Their egos were fed with promises of progress; their lower natures lured into new realms of prosperity and convenience. They were unprepared. You and I have the benefit of critical thinking about these things. They did not. They were not yet conscious of the self-serving nature of the dream they were participating in. We have this awareness. We have the responsibility to live differently.
