Roger, I'm looking forward to your posting of Jeff Riggenbach's works.

I recently bought "In Praise of Decadence" and I'm looking forward to reading it, though I'm skeptical about Jeff's premise that the 60's generation were more libertarian than left-wing. I contend that they were neither. All things considered, the Boomers turned out to be quite a fascist bunch. Lefty Boomers gave us political correctness and righty Boomers gave us Christian conservatism. Generation X (my generation) and generation Y are far more libertarian than that of the Boomer generation.
