ANALYSIS/OPINION:

We are entering a new zeitgeist - a transcendent mood and way of thinking that defines a period of history when personal freedom and individual achievement are subjugated and give way to collective well-being, collective thinking, socialist ideals and spread-the-misery elitist central planners.

It’s like 40 years ago, when the assassinations, riots and hippie culture of 1968 gave way to another zeitgeist, breaking away from the prosperity of the post-World War II Eisenhower years and the promising time of Camelot to when America’s innocence and prominence in the world seemed lost.
