I was just downloading some songs from the late 60's/70's. Granted I didn't grow up during those two decades, I just came to wondering, considering how diverse and experimental the music was back then that, that time period was possibly more liberal in attitude than today. Think about how explosive the 60's culture was from say '64-'69 in so many areas (fashion, attitudes towards sex, drugs, music). There were so many movements, too. Sexual revolution, women's lib., civil rights, etc. A lot of these attitudes seeped into the movies and TV (The Graduate, Easy Riders to name a few) and eventually worked its way into the mainstream audience by the seventies. It sort of seems that today certain attitudes just lay stagnant and aren't challenged or questioned as they were back then. It's kind of hard to put into words, but it seems like the late 60's/ early 70's were more progessive in just about every aspect of life. I think that era was the most pivotal time of the 20th century and broke the mold of the cookie-cutter world of the 50's and early 60's. But when the 80's arrived it appeared that the pendulum swung the other way. Anyone who grew up during that era agree?
