i'm sure not many here lived in that era...but i wonder what that era was like people said it was a better time and people were more cultured and friendly...the music was also killer....lots of great jazz....some great psych rock etc...i just wonder if it was better compared to the mess we have today...lol

Yeah, plus we got to keep black people and women in their places.

You have an abundance of periods where they should not be, and a lack of periods where they should be.

You're saying that the music was "killer" based on the songs that have survived the test of time. That era had their fair share of shit songs too.

OT: It would have sucked compared to nowadays.

He was here yesterday. And unless you spend the whole time whacked out om drugs I'm betting it would suck. Awesome if you remembered who won all the major sporting events. Also you can lol hard at the duck and cover drills.

Now: we have everything good that they had back then

Then: They didn't have half the cool stuff we have today

I guess one might talk about the optimism, "free thinking" and stuff like that but look at what it lead to, burned out old hippies and the eighties

I'll stay in 2013, thank you very much

I grew up in rural areas, so it would have sucked.

Although, I do a lot of stuff with my local community. It would have been cooler to have a much bigger involvement within my city. The internet and easy transport kinda got rid of a lot of that.

It would be mostly bad, though.

the cultural revolution that's happening today is larger than that in the 60's by far... we have THE INTERNET; we can spread ideas and thoughts through a literal web of information. I would strongly argue that today everything about the 60's still exists, but amplified times 1000. Even music, just because mainstream music sucks doesn't mean that all the music of this generation sucks.
#24
yeah all the music in the 60's was awesome and everything today sucks.

Not really well, maybe. I imagine the 1960s here, being a lot like my house!
(The last time this room was decorated was then)! -- A lot like my house but more 'more', y'know? Like; instead of just my house, it'll be the whole street, and outside the cars'll be older too. Everything would be colder, like, we'd all have gas fires and no one would have double glazing and TV would be in black & white (here) and; No internet, no computers, just a radio, a record (vinyl) player and a black & white TV that went to bed at 9pm; I guess.

But surely that equates more to a technological revolution than a cultural one?

Consider this, the 60s cultural revolution resulted in both blacks and women being treated equally under the law to white males, the 60s also marked the beginnings of gay liberation and also alternative or 'independant' media, can you name anything that was as culturaly significant as any of those that the internet was directly responsible for?

Think about it globally, Libya used twitter, facebook, and youtube to pretty much overthrow Muammar Gaddafi. You are right, it is technological but human conscious today is arguably more aware/connected than in the 60's because of technological advances like the internet

EDIT: I bet that the internet has somehow affected gay rights as well

I'm 66, so yes, I was around then. I graduated high school in '64, entered the army, did 3 years in Germany, and was out in '67 (cleverly avoiding the Vietnam thing....)
Entered the police academy in '68, been in police work ever since.

I can only report on the local scene here in St. Louis... We did not see a lot of the big cultural changes that were so widely reported. "Hippies" were more of a fashion statement than a lifestyle... We presumed that real hippies went to one coast or the other....
There was a fair bit of unrest, but nothing like happened in many parts of the country. We had local racial activistis like "Rap" Brown and Stokely Carmichael, but for the most part little violence and no outright riot situations.
In fact, the only police "riot call" that occurred locally was at the university where I would eventually be employed, when students protesting the presence of ROTC on campus burned down the ROTC building.
I admit I was not much into the pop music scene back then; I was drifting towards the folk and roots-music genre. Most all my friends were old Gaslight-Square folk-revival artists.
We did have the Beatles play at the old Busch stadium (you can still get bootleg tapes, and hear nothing but girls screaming...), and the university here hosted the Dead.
I never saw much of the "peace, love, and understanding" thing going on locally. Missourians are rather conservative and tradition bound.
