Not too long ago, I read how the "big clothes" fashion movement of the 1980s and early 1990s was due to Baby Boomers putting on weight as they entered their 30s and 40s -- their buying power was still greater than the next generation (Xers). The tighter styles didn't emerge until the Millennials had their own buying power around 2000. History appears to be repeating itself. Millennials are now in their 30s and 40s and fashion is getting a little looser again. https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/28/business/levi-baggy-jeans/index.html

We essentially have half the county accusing the other half of thoughtcrime - resulting in many people being canceled by platforms that claim they aren't "publishers" and don't practice editorial decision-making over content. As a result, others have voluntarily removed themselves from the same networks in the name of anti-censorship and freedom of speech. We now officially have segregated into two Americas that exist in separate worlds both geographically and virtually. This will only get worse
Right now approximately 3 people control the ability of you and several billion other people to communicate.
