Those darn hippies. Will they never learn?
The psychedelic drugs of hippiedom are gone but not the need for something more than ordinary reality. So, the hippie-chicks and freaks of yesteryear have developed a cult-like of devotion to work and can't enjoy life unless they feel the pain of the 60-hour week.
If you tell them that the long hours are wrecking their families, you're bound to be met by angry bravado from superwomen who claim to work extreme hours yet take care of their broods as well as any full time mom.
But, never fear, the children of these masters of excess, have rebelled. They were raised in the Twelve-Step programs that cared for their parents when they crashed and burned. As a result, they are much more willing to put their families' welfare before any selfish need for kicks.
And, so, the wisdom of the past lives on. Old people are bad and young people are good. And so it shall ever be.
