Were they telling the truth? And did they know what they were doing? They thought that if they did not follow the flappers’ advice, their lives would be ruined and that they would never again be able to dress, but on the contrary, they were able to achieve everything they had always hoped for, a new beginning, and a bright future.
But this was only a beginning, for soon the flappers’ teachings went beyond that of the flappers to become a new form of religion.

They were very foolish: they were only following the flappers’ example: it was only a new form of religion which had arisen.
