Britain experienced the exact opposite economically and their government aimed to reconstruct prewar Britain. The Great War forced Britain into a period of depression, leaving society frightened and pessimistic. The older generation existed largely in a state of mourn, while the youth chose to forget the trauma caused by the war. The youth viewed the Great War as a waste of life, thus creating a hedonistic lifestyle with partying being their primary intention. They became notorious for their elaborately themed parties along with extreme drug use.
One of only 20 students in the world to receive the honor of early acceptance. While she was there she enhanced her songwriting skills. Later, she left the school and to make ends meet she took 3 jobs, one even was a go-go dancer that in time helped her performing ability.

Based on the movie, the Merchants of Cool, it can be seen that the culture of the youths is different from the ancient cultural practices. This can be seen from what they like, what they value and what they practice daily. In this movie, it can be seen whereby youths celebrate together through discos, and also takes pleasure in purchasing what they refer to as fashionable attires.

Teens do drugs then go to their friends and brag about how it was so amazing, but really all there doing is pulling someone into something they dont need to be a part of.

First, my view is that the definition of success has become distorted in our time. Mainstream marketing and media have effectively brainwashed our society into accepting a false meaning of success.
Ironically Frank being the well educated half of the comic duo he is slowly killing his knowledge with the drink, as this creates a humorous effect for the audience as they are able to see that Rita longs for the intellegence that Frank has. Arguably Rita is also a misfit due to the fact that she is a smoker, equal to the
