Timeline of generations in the Western world as in its Wikipedia article with notable events by CMG Lee. The retirement and life expectancy ages are approximate due to variations in place and time.
And then, deep in my subconsciousness, an old punk number from days gone by stirred and rose to the top of my thoughts, an earworm and it wasn't going away anytime soon: "Whatever happened to, all the heroes, by the Stranglers."
Whatever ever happened to, all the heroes?
I was born in Leeds, a sprawling industrial, working-class city in the north of England, situated among the other smokey grey monster conurbations of Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield and Bradford, I grew up among those 'dark satanic mills' mentioned in the famous Blake poem which dared suggests that Jesus will create heaven in England, in contrast to the dark Satanic horrors of the Industrial Revolution.
Does that make me a hero? Nah, maybe a working-class hero, which was considered something to be, but certainly not the kind of hero I lived amongst when I was born in 1956, you see, they were the greatest.
1956 was just 11 years after the 2nd World War had finished, as a kid, I often played in bombed-out-buildings, it's what kids did back then. The fact I fantasied and played through such a tragic pile of memories, books, magazines, old clothes, pots and pans never entered my head, the bombed-out building was a treasure chest, and I was too young to connect death to rubble and old books to tragedy. Kids create their own excitement and their own agenda.
I was lucky, though, I mean my parents were considered poor, but dad worked hard. (Is three hot meals a day and the cleanest mother in the world poverty? I don't think so. . . ) I had missed the war, and so had my dad, he had been too young to enlist.
The people who once owned the tragic pile of memories I often played in as a kid were indeed heroes. A wonderful generation. They were even known as 'The Greatest Generation,' also known as the 'World War II generation.' But there was also a people before that, called the Lost Generation, who were equally great heroes, heroes of World War 1. This generation is generally defined as people born from around 1883 to 1927. They were shaped by the Great War and of course the Great Depression and were the primary generation composing the enlisted forces in World War II.
American G.I.s land on Omaha Beach (occupied France, Europe) on June 6, 1944. . .
Now, if we shoe in the 'Lost' and the 'Greatest generations' into a Biblical generation starting in 1883, (we don't know exactly when in 1883) these two 'greatest generations' would come to an end somewhere around mid-1956 to early 1957. Historian Authors William Strauss and Neil Howe define the Lost Generation as the cohort born from 1883 to 1900, who came of age during World War I, the Spanish flu pandemic, the Great Depression and of course, the Roaring Twenties. (Have we entered a 'NEW' Roaring Twenties? Well, yes we have. . . History repeating)
The Bible tells us in Matt 1:16 that a generation is 73 years. (14 x 73 = 1,026) Now, if the Lost Generation began in 1883, and we add the Greatest Generation to it, well according to the Bible these two 'superhero' timelines ended sometime in 1956 less than a year before 1957. Greatest Generation Lost Generation
Now, why is 1956/57 significant here? Well, regular readers of The Big Wobble will know I have been researching a link to climate change and the collapse of our planet, the demise of our species, agriculture and oceans for several years now and I now have conclusive evidence of all the things above began happening in or around 1957—Coinciding with our Sun literally exploding with a record number of sunspots which mirrored a record-breaking number of major quakes -mag 6 or higher which 'coincidently' happened the same year here on Earth. (The USGS has since changed the historical data on their site reducing the number of major quakes in 1957, however, I do have backup data and a rather tame email from USGS explaining why they changed the data!) That's another story!
Of course, heroism didn't suddenly stop in 1957, of course, it didn't, but there is a historically based record of a terrible social and moral decline in the West which began in the late 50s' and early 60s', of this there can be no doubt. It's as if God pulled His divine intervention and His protective wings away from the West after the hero WWI and WWII generation, why? Could the hero generation be the last of the 10 lost tribes of Abraham? Could that even be possible?
The decline is undeniable! The beginning of the 'Godless' generations. When people stopped saying "I wanna help you." And start screaming, "it's all about me, me, me! The early 60s of course. . .
It's here in black and white, written almost 2,000 years ago—2 Timothy :3 explains exactly when the heroes left and were replaced with another 'sort':
3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was.
And so it was, and. . . So it is, but, of course, we didn't notice at the time, wow! It is all so obvious now.
In many ways, the 1960s was a precursor to what is happening to the world in the early stages of the 2020s. The term "the Sixties" is used by historians, journalists, and other academics in scholarship and popular culture to denote the complex of inter-related cultural and political trends around the globe during this era. It's as if the 60s' was the decade God decided to pull away from helping the West any longer, just like he did to the Jews in 721 BC 608 BC and 70 AD. History repeating, after all, the West is the 12 lost tribes of Abraham, surely?
We are of course addressing the same issues today but now on a steroid overdose! Poverty, civil liberties, BLM, Antifa, MAGA, White Supremacy, and Left vs Right, LGBT issues to name just a few, only, God is long gone now, as I said, we are knee-deep in a Godless generation, step back, think about that? It's just us against us, no help whatsoever from God anymore. Unless you have His spirit of course, but that's another story.
Some use the term to describe the 60s' decade's counterculture and revolution in social norms about clothing, music, drugs, dress, and sexuality, just look at the LGBT movement of today and the sexualising of schoolchildren and the #MeToo movement. Still, others used it to denounce the decade as one of irresponsible excess, flamboyance, and decay of social order, we have had enough social order decay in the first year of the second decade of 2000 to last us a lifetime, and we are only into the 4th year.
The decade was also labelled the Swinging Sixties because of the fall or relaxation of social taboos that occurred during this time, but also because of the emergence of a wide range of music; from a folk music revival to the Beatles revolution to the introspective lyrics of Bob Dylan and Paul Simon. New music today, Rap but with similar lyrics, rhythmic and rhyming speech still asking the same questions by the repressed poor people on the streets as what was asked back in the 60s.
The 60s was the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning of our historic journey as human inhabitants of this world here in the west, let me explain. Around 1960 apart from all the social and political changes mentioned above, suddenly our planet began to warm up, natural disasters began to increase, our climate began to change and there was an increase in seismic and volcanic activity around the globe, it was as if, a trigger had been pulled. Oh, I almost forgot, a frenetic, wild and uncontrolled space race had begun too.
Of course, the changes were too small to notice back then but the clock had clearly started ticking, and our fate was sealed. And now with the aid of 2020 technology, we can see with the help of stats, graphs and archives we can clearly see when our world began to change forever and it was undoubtedly around 1960.
What is really happening in the US and the UK recently, is there a reason behind the insanity? Is there a way of knowing where the countries are going and how the insanity will end? Well yes, there is, for people who can't already see where it's going that is. . .
A pamphlet written by Herbert W Armstrong many years ago appears to have the answer. Download After an incredible journey of wealth and power, promised by God more than 4,000 years ago Tarshish and her young lions, England, America, Canada Australia and New Zealand will simply look on as the mighty Gog threatens to destroy their ally and friend Israel in the last days
The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy
To find out the answer we have to go back around 4,000 years to when a man called Jacob was born, who later was given the name Israel and is regarded as a Patriarch of the Israelites and so is an important figure in Abrahamic religions, such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Jacob first appears in the Book of Genesis, the son of Isaac and Rebecca, the grandson of Abraham, Sarah and Bethuel, and the nephew of Ishmael. Jacob is said to have had twelve sons by four women, his wives, Leah and Rachel, and his concubines, Bilhah and Zilpah, who were, in order of their birth, Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, and Benjamin, all of whom became the heads of their own family groups, later known as the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

When the Jews entered the Promised Land, the 12 tribes settled in a different region and eventually the tribes split into two kingdoms. The southern kingdom was called Judah and consisted of two tribes, Judah and Benjamin. The remaining 10 tribes formed the northern kingdom and were called Israel.
In 721 BC, the Assyrians conquered Israel, the northern kingdom and deported the Israelites to an area north of the Euphrates River between the Black and Caspian Seas. (2 Kings 17). The Ten tribes who were deported never returned to the northern nation of Israel after their captivity.
The Lost Ten Tribes Of Israel
According to Mr Armstrong, The knowledge and identity of the descendants of ancient Israel are revealed by a close examination of scripture and secular history. Are the ten lost tribes of Israel linked to the UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand? Ezekial was commissioned by God to be "the watchman" for the house of Israel. (Ezekial 2:3; 33:7). However, Ezekiel's commission was not to be the watchman of his own people and his generation, which was the house of Judah, the southern kingdom or the northern ten tribes of Israel which had been conquered by the Assyrians 120 years earlier, no Ezekiel's commission was not for Israel of his day but for the ten lost tribes of the north and their future.
God wanted Ezekiel to sound the alarm, to warn the lost tribes of future calamities which would take over them and they would be unaware of their fate. Jehovah takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, no he wanted to warn them, giving them the responsibility for their own fate, (Ezekiel 33: 9-16). Ezekiel's warning was for end-time Israel. (Ezekiel 4: 3). In fact, we are told that the warnings were for the time near the Day Of The Lord. (Ezekiel 7:19;13:5; 30:1-3; 38: 1-29).
Tarshish and the young lions
As usual your latest write has brought up so many thoughts for this old Alaskan to muse. I wish I had the time earlier in the day to read it so I might not have it so much in the forefront of my brain while I try to grab a few hours rest.
I will ponder this and Thursday or Friday try to sum up my thoughts. Part of these thoughts are coming from two books I just read by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. The first was "The Return Of The Gods" and the second is "The Harbinger II". Both have time lines that are scary accurate.
Keep up the good work my Brother by Another Mother, and may Adonai bless you as you sound the cry from the top of the wall!!
Blessings, Just Me.
P.S., I was out side today cutting wood and observed chem-trails being sprayed. Yep some one let STUPID out of His Box again!!!
The same thing happened to me too Laughing Bear! Hi!ReplyDelete
So many thoughts ran through my mind, but in reply to the Alaskan's ending P.S. line, seeing chem trails being sprayed while out cutting wood ... look at the small print under the pictured box graph of global warming temps rising since 1960. It says, it's true, temps are rising "BUT" it's also getting colder, wetter, dryer ...
That is the propaganda distraction being used and especially being used by the Republicans here in USA, (Trump is a big advocate for this BS) to confuse people in to thinking the whole climate issue is a non issue only made up by democrats to push the green agenda blah blah politics!
The truth is, yes, it is getting much much hotter but it is also getting colder, wetter, dryer, etc. Why? If we really have GW then why is it also getting much colder in our winter months too? True GW would cause all year long warm weather, no more cold stuff, right?
The answer is yes, that's correct, but because of geoengineering the planet, chem trails are that, winters are getting colder. Those spray trails block out some sunlight and create conditions for fake cold winters. Nucleated freeze downs are what they are and my point is, if not for this winter geoengineering activity there would be NO winter anywhere on earth now. That's how bad it really is.
Put simpler; the global warming is real and the colder part is fake.
We are at the point now that without geoengineering operations winters would be absent. It would be hot all year long. Actual natural winters are gone, they do not exist anymore, what we witness is man made winter. Fake cold.
Folks need to get this now because it's critical. The earth's heating is extreme and can not be stopped, only covered up and only for a few days at best. That's why after EVERY cold snap the following days warm right back up until temps are back at too hot for winter and then they hit us again with another fake cool down.
It's why resources are becoming scarce, it's why the globalists are panicking to control everything. It's why they plan on 15 minute cities. To save the planet of course, not to save us. Trump just put out a news briefing advocating "freedom cities". Haha, he is so evil! Freedom cities are 15 minutes cities re-named to sound more desirable. Trump is one of them, a globalist!! A liar! Don't believe him. It's a trap.
If they were not creating cold winters it would be warm/hot all year. People would know then that GW is real, but due to their denied geoengineering operations people don't believe in GW because it gets so darn cold every winter. That is the truth of the matter ... you see with your naked eyes as Laughing Bear just wrote us, he saw the chem trails being sprayed.
That visual never gets noticed? Do people really not see it? I wonder! I wonder because how can anyone not see those trails in the sky as it goes on constantly, turns the skies into white outs??!
If "they" tell this truth people would panic and economies would most likely crumble in hours. People would be hoarding resources and chaos would be born. Revolutions would ocurr. People would protest, question, rebel, and possibly rise up to conquer the elites insanity.
So, they lie. It's that simple.
Carbons are not the big cause. Radiation is. Know this, it is a fact. Pay attention to their words. Trump mocks GW, has called winter freeze downs weather "virtual blizzards". He is telling the truth, virtual means fake, not real, it's virtual. This is how they play us. You should be insulted and mad. It is poisoning everything and tops the list of causes as to why everyone is so sick!!
Thanks you guys! Great post!
