Dionysian and Apollonian generations
#1
I don't think this is a property of cycles, but of generations:

Missionaries were Apollonian. The Lost reacted with strong Dionysian tendencies in the 1920s and the remainder of the 20th century was mostly Dionysian. GIs had strong Apollonian tendencies (engineering), but they invented fascism with its Dionysian cult of physical power. Boomers are perhaps the most Dionysian generation ever. Xers are also Dionysian with their barbaric punk and rap music. Millennials appear to be Apollonian, with their fascination with computers.

What do you think?
