Professional Reviews

Midwest Book Review Linda Robinson
Tainted Legacy, a book recommended by a friend in the military, hit home in today's controversy about the teaching of history in American schools. In what amounts to an expose' of 20th Century Americans missing the truth, while learning deconstructed history, Rumer subtly makes the case for the "story by old dead white guys."

Recognizing that American history has a taproot in the Magna Carta, the story begins there and quickly skips through the Reformation and birth of the political philosophy called Liberalism to get to the revolutionary period. Pointing out the different versions of Liberalism pursued by the French and American revolutionaries, the author answers his own question: "How, after all those years, did it (the cold war) narrow to two ideological adversaries?"

The well-written tale that follows covers 20th Century America from the great influx of immigrants at the start of the century through the strange election that began the 21st Century. A century that saw Americans, enabled by the wisdom and vision of the Founding Fathers, build the greatest nation in the world.

At times the story reads like a novel as the author describes profound events in down to earth terms:

"With a boomer ascending to the presidency, the Radical Eglite were prepared to press their agenda to trump the evils of a Capitalist society. Had
not their grand crusades over the past thirty years, Vietnam, Civil and Gay rights, Women's Lib, the Peace Corps, and saving the environment, demonstrated the righteousness of their compassion?. . . In spite of past glory, it was not to be. From the ignominious failure of Hillary to put the Federal government in charge of America's healthcare, to Bill's last stand burning midnight oil dispensing controversial pardons, Eglite energy was diverted from the dream."

Born in the trailing cohort of the GI generation, David Rumer draws a word picture of the legacy bequeathed to the "X" generation by the "Boomers." A legacy tainted by a homemade secular "religion" practiced by an Elite in America, that sees social order infringing on their exclusive freedoms. Rumer sees them operating from an exaggerated forum where their "politically correct" opinions declare everything else irrelevant. Not a pessimist, the author uses the "theory of generations" to bring a ray of hope to America's future as the "X"ers lead the "Millenials" in overcoming mega-crises ahead.

Reader Reviews for "Tainted Legacy Gen-X Inherits the Hangover"

Reviewed by Michael Guy 8/11/2008
I think this is absolute biased, bigoted rubbish masquerading as historical analysis! Prejudiced minds always look for someone or some group to blame for their deficiencies. You ain't seeing straight. B.S. from a G.X.'r looking for more excuses!
