Whatever Happened To Generation X?

[Tiffanie] Darke was at the centre of that culture, and remembers it primarily for its loved-up, hedonistic joyfulness and sense of inclusivity -- it appealed across all boundaries of class, race, gender, and sexuality. She was even present at the impromptu, now notorious all-weekend rave at Castlemorton, Worcestershire, which was eventually shut down by police. It was a cool, rebellious culture, and one based on a 'liberal, egalitarian mindset,' she says: 'At a rave, you would talk to anyone, everyone was equally valid -- crusties and travellers would be there, plumbers, homosexuality was celebrated, black music was celebrated. And it evolved organically and slowly,' says Darke.

The first and only step to become an intolerable asshole is to take yourself seriously.

Bret Easton Ellis, One.

Though of course there were people who rejected my aesthetics about Fruitvale Station and seemed to suggest I should like it no matter what, hinting in fact that I was a racist because I simply didn't like the aesthetics of the movie. But this is the age of Comrade Snowflake judging everyone so harshly if one resists and questions the threatening groupthink ideology of what their idea of progressive inclusivity is for all or else. Meaning we can't make fun of our differences, everybody has to be the same and you become a bad person if you don't like something, and you're automatically a racist or a sexist if you refuse to join the group. This is what happens to a culture when a culture doesn't care about art anymore.
