This is not about the 1960’s book Silent Spring, written by the environmentalist Rachael Carson. It is about the 1960’s people who read the book and who fought against the pesticides released in the environment about which Carson wrote. Now known as the Baby Boomers, they went on to fight against civil rights injustice and fight against the Viet Nam war. It is about a group of people who read Hegel and Marx. Who were misguided but willing, in their youthful idealism, to stand up and protest the perceived wrongs they saw occurring in their country and their culture. They became the teachers and Professors in our Universities. They trained and taught the next generation of Americans, who are the Obama voters today. Looking back now it is apparent that the push towards Socialism which drove this 60’s revolution, was actually the sword of Damocles which Barak Obama has used skillfully to destroy this country. It is from these people, the Boomers, whose head the sword hangs over, that a silent scream can be heard.
