    Let's bring more peace into this world! If only we had a little of the 60's spirit in everyone :meh: seems like today it's about getting as much money and sex as you can and not caring about another individual being well on the way.

    And you think the 60's weren't motivated by sex, money and drugs?
     
  3. All those people that came of age in the 1960's are the people in power now. We can bring the 60's back if you want...
     
  4. I wish the music would come back. Where has all the talent gone? :meh:

    I work so I can get as much of the piece of the pie (and money and sex too) as I can. Unlike some liberals, I'm not full of self loathing and guilt over enjoying what I honestly earned.

    Hey man I would agree the 60s would be a great thing to go back too! Great music and well I still have great sex! And I still get drugs! LOL

    The money was all in politics back then as well!

    I wasn't alive, but....

    What about the bad things of the 60's? Do we really want all that back?

    Communal toothbrushes, the draft, Blue Cheer, pubic lice, vw buses, poorly produced lsd (now with methamphetamine!), prostate cancer as terminal illness, greater economic and civil inequities....

    I think our nostalgia is often inaccurate.

  11. Absolutely. If you think about it realistically, it's hard to argue otherwise.

    That my friend is because you are not American! She is are white trash queen and we must worship her! LOL just kidding.

    And why is today better than the 60s? Kind of hard to get into this without getting into politics and I have already gotten into trouble in this area for that! :D

    We can kind of dodge the politics, and say that health care is vastly improved, care for our elderly and disabled is of much higher quality, schools and universities are desegregated, most homes have air conditioning/heat, infant mortality is lower, people are more accepting of difference, there are more women and minorities in leadership positions, home ownership amongst minorities is much higher, environmental and safety standards are vastly improved, the internet (and therefore information) is accessible to just about everyone....

    Lots of things are better now.

    What was better then, besides pop music? I think i'd say people were more community-oriented, but again, i wasn't alive way back when.
