How did the JVP insurrection in late 80s impact current Sri Lankan society?

Well this is just a thought that came up. ; the second JVP insurrection in the late 80s claimed more than 60,000 lives most of whom were in thier youths. The bloody carnage claimed policitians, undergraduates, artists, journalists and activists from all walks of lives. Many of those who were killed would have been in thier early/mid 40s if they were alive today. So how has this vaccume impacted the current Sri Lankan society?

Will we be more more conservative or open minded about various issues? For example when taking the entertainment industry and cinema i feel that the 70s society was less conservative compared to our current society? And we seemed to have lost something in the 80s and mid 90s But it can be due to various reasons. And also regarding may other socio-political issues will our thinking be different? and i feel that there is some gap tha needs to be filled by the current genration...

  1. That coupled with the war in the North kinda crippled the national spirit, I think. :/ What a glorious waste of humanity.
