Baby Boomers replace Ideals for Virtues thus completely mucking up the whole end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st
Of course, I didn't think of it, Kairos did:

So much of what has gone wrong with America’s ability to lead in the world stems from the substitution of “ideals” for “virtue,” as in the replacement of “Justice” with “peace.” Ideals in and of themselves have little or no moral value. “Peace” cannot be understood as either good or bad without modification: “just” or “unjust;” whereas justice either is, or is not.
