What was the best/worst fad of the 80's?
In the eighties America learned that its okay to be an American and to be greedy. Materialism and self-indulgence characterized the atmosphere of the 1980's as yuppie culture emerged, and for an elite few value was judged in houses, cars, and gadgets. President Ronald Reagan's economic policies left countless autoworkers and farmers searching for jobs. The personal computer age began in the early 80's when two guys named Steve introduced the Apple Computer to the world. Sadly, in 1980, a crazed gunman murdered John Lennon. In 1984 the music video became a staple in popular culture when MTV hit the airwaves. In 1986 tragedy struck when the space shuttle Challenger exploded shortly after take-off killing all seven crewmembers including a schoolteacher. Headway in international relations occurred in 1989 when out of the blue the Cold War ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the fall of the Berlin Wall.
