Even a time traveling popstrologist transported back from the future would have had a difficult time convincing Americans in 1981 that their innocent embrace of Diana Ross and Lionel Richie would have such far-reaching implications. How could anyone have convinced them that the rise of this Power Couple would tie in, somehow, to the rise of REO Speedwagon, and that the rise of REO Speedwagon represented the first step in the brand-new Reagan administration's covert effort to place the same distinctive stamp on the popstrological firmament that it sought more openly to place on the American economic and social fabric? Among its other eventual crimes against diversity, the constellation Reaganrock helped ensure that neither Dolly Parton, Kim Carnes, Kool and the Gang, or Rick Springfield would ever build on their 1981 popstrological breakthroughs, and if anything good is to come from that it can only be to point the children of 1981 to an important lesson: Never take your freedom for granted. If you value it at all, you will commit yourself to defending the interests of the weak and to questioning the motives of the powerful, especially when the powerful seem to have no ill motives at all.
