I wasn't around in the 70's either and yet I still know what an A track is
I agree with this whole topic, I don't have any kids yet but when I do have a kid I plan on teaching most of the things I grew up on in the 80s and 90s. I wasn't around in the 70s I still know what an A track is. I think kids today is just spoiled they don't need to look back and see what we had they have all this electronics to play with.
Castles and trains are different because they actually still exist.
This culture that worships ignorance and calls the unknown names is all about ego, and not about actual knowledge. The cold hard fact is that all-attitude and no knowledge doesn't get people very far at all. Parents who want their kids to be even less informed are not good parents. And kids who are too busy taking selfies and other vainglory activities to learn facts have nobody but themselves to blame when they find that they can't get jobs. Lack of knowledge is not power
