Influence of single mothers for non-Artist generations
#1
We had the Xers from 1961-86, the Millies from 1982-2004 (probably), and since then the Homelanders. Except for the latter, these aren't Artist generations.

But we know after all: It doesn't depend on the birth year to become a certain Archetype, but on the concrete experiences of people.

The experiences of the Artists started in a time when most fathers were either away fighting in Europe and the Pacific, or working double shifts in factories etc. In nay case, mothers had more influence on the children than anyone else. Explains the tendency of the Artists towards sensitivity.

My point: Since the so-called Consciousness Revolution (ConRev, anyone?), many kids grew up with single mothers. And without a father. Often, that lead to problems later in life.

Since fatherless kids are in that regard a bit like e.g. the Silents - can we say that all fatherless kids are a bit like Artists? Especially those who were smothered by their mothers.

Some women (and regrettably girls, a reference to teenagers unready for the responsibilities of motherhood) had children out of wedlock, mostly out of spectacular error and those children usually ended up with wholly-inadequate mothers. Some kids got single parents through widowhood (without so many pathologies) and some through divorce (the kids often became resentful, manipulative monsters).

Go figure.
The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist  but instead the people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists -- Hannah Arendt.
