    I suppose it would've been cool, my dad says pot and LSD and well, everything was real cheap and all. Hmm, I could've stalked Jim Morrison and stuff... :D haha, but, living through the sixties means you have to live through the eighties... no thanks my friend.

    Ya know not everything you see on the television or hear about the sixties was ALL peace and free love, there was still a war and TONS of violence, people were fighting in the streets people being shot and killed by police officers, nothing different than today. The sixties were an uprising towards a new freedom yes, But there were alot of people killed and murdered. many soldiers who came back from the War were often Looked upon in shame causing them to devolop breakdowns and depressions. and mant teenagers had died from overdoses on all the drugs they had taken. it was only a good time for the few who never saw all the tragedy.

    Rock n roll will never be as godly, dope never as cheap, something else never as something...

    That was a quote by the way... or should I say a misquote. Bob Dylan, I believe. Just pretend I remembered it.

    I wouldn't have liked to live in the '60s. I couldn't go through 'Nam. Let's stop dwelling on the past and tackle the problems of today's world, hokay? Don't worry- you can still keep your Big Brother and the Holding Company albums.

  15. There's so much to say about this subject, but I'll just say that one reason the hippie movement of the 60's was so "cool" is because it was made up of young people who grew up in the very innocent age of the 50's and early 60's. Young people were much more socialble, and positive minded. Even though they were protesting against the society that created them. TV, movies, and music, was all about love and adventure or silly escapism. No reality type violence. No anger. The closest thing to it was the movie "Rebel Without A Cause". Even the evening news was filtered until later in the Viet Nam war.
    Society has lost it's innocence and you just can't go back. But, maybe their's something better ahead in the future. Maybe we can learn to be positive and love one another without the naive innocence.

    I would have loved to have lived in the Sixties, the counterculture was so much more vibrant back then. But wasn't the pot back then a good deal weaker than the stuff we have today (what with hydroponics and all that).

    Hear hear, the only way we'll be able to relive the sixties (all that was good about the Sixties, of course) is to be active now and help make a movement happen again.
