Fr. Hewko in this sermon tells how:
Business men realized in the 1940's and 50's this new development called the "teenage level". They targeted that making billions of dollars with teenage music, teenage fashion, teenage rock 'n roll, teen age this, teen age that. They made billions off of this while they instilled in the children rebellion against God, rebellion against their parents, rebellion against their holy Catholic faith of tradition. Everything that was old, everything that was of the wisdom of the ancients was considered backwards and not modern enough. When you look back at ancient man, medieval man, even the Romans they had such a respect for everything that came back down from the past. The wisdom of their fathers, they respected that. It's only in the modern world that has, because of evolution, "we're better than all the ages before us", so they deceitfully deceived and think, that they spit on everything of the past. Teenagers became it's own culture and it's still going on, the destruction of the family.

“They want to be cool. They are impressionable, and they have the cash.: The teen world is “corporate America’s $150 billion dream”!
TEENAGERS AND "TEENAGE CULTURE"
TEENAGERS AND "TEENAGE CULTURE"
by John Vennari
The concept of “teenager” and of “teenage culture” is rather new, something that history has never seen before. It’s an abnormality that we consider normal. That we take for granted.
For centuries up to the present, there was no such thing as a teenager. The word “teenager” was used for the first time around 1941, and it is a Madison Avenue term.
Prior to this, those of this age group were referred to as young adults or adolescents. But in the early 20th Century , a number of events occurred that ended up establishing the concept of “teenager” and teenage culture.
First of all, what do I mean by “teenager”? A teenager, according to the modern understanding, is a boy or girl, beginning at about 11 to 13 years of age, who is starting to become an adult; who is beginning to grow somewhat independent from their parents. Teenagers are also under going the physical and hormonal changes that start to take place at this age. They now have the powers of reproduction, and all the new sensations and temptations that go with with. They also experience the urge to assert their own will and their own personality.
In a certain sense, that was always true of boys and girls of this age group. It’s that period of transition between childhood and adulthood.
What is new in the modern phenomenon we call “teenager”, however, is a kind of rebellion against parents and a separation from family. His peers, not his family, will be the greatest influence of the teen’s life, He will expect to enjoy an active social life independent from his family or guardians. He will also submerge himself in the teenage culture of dating, leisure, movies, and rock and roll.
In fact, rock and roll and movies are entire industries that are centered very much on this age group, and helped create the modern “teenager”.
The author Taylor Caldwell, who was born in England in 1900, and who could read Shakespeare at the age of six, came with her family to America in 1907. She wrote of what she saw in the United States regarding her years as an adolescent, and said the following in her 1971 book On Growing up Tough:
“In America of those days there was no time to be a ‘teenager’, or to have adolescent ‘turmoils’. None of my…..”
