I’ve been watching the Glastonbury Festival on Palladia. A bunch of has-been throwbacks. CSN doing “Marrakesh Express”, I never realized how twee and gay that song really was. A hippie travelogue! About buying souvenirs!
It’s over. The 60’s are over. The 70’s are over. The 80’s are over. The 90’s are over. The 00’s aren’t over yet, they’re still beating us up and taking our lunch money, but they will be soon. Progressivism is as silly and old as “Marrakesh Express”, an old lady in Birkenstocks. Neo-conservatism, as a partial return to sanity, is a little more modern but still, as Gallagher said, stuck in the 60’s.
The people running things don’t realize it’s a new world, they were having so much fun in the old one, but it’s here, and it’s time to start living in it.
