Okay, so I was a little too young in 1988 to really grasp the political climate.
It’s a crazy thing to think about, but I guess every generation has its own reason to fear that the sky is falling. There is always going to be mass anxiety, and much of it for good reason.
What can we do? I guess we just pull together and make the best life we can while we have the chance, look after each other, and try to have faith that most of the people we share the planet with are good and kind and compassionate.
AND we can rock out to 80’s goth rock on YouTube!!

A friend sent me this extended version including the Mother Russia lyrics and clips from DUNE, another 80’s classic. Awesome!
