BTW, I think I caught a glimpse of Ronald Reagan in that compilation.
But the same thing will happen in the future, in regards to modern movies of our time. Just like we look back at old movies like this and say WOW, how could they have put that content into a movie...people 50-80 yrs in the future will be saying the same things about movies made in 2017!

Hollywood sleaze has broken down all decency and they have no limits or standards. It has become THE NEW NORMAL to be foul mouthed, using sex in the worse way possible as so called comedians sprew there garbage ,and it is all so acceptable. That is the sad thing of how far our society has fallen.
Exchange comedian to reality star and you described the potus to a tee.

I'm not sure about that....

But one thing is certain, is that classless behavior has become more socially acceptable in many ways. In movies and in real life.

Fashionable even.

Actually one could say that some younger individuals in the Silent generation(the generation before Boomers) were more likely to be hippies than Boomers since the majority of Boomers, like you, were children in the 60s. Plus I don't think there were as many hippies as you think there were.

Not all .. many stayed straight laced as they were taught good morals and adhered to them .. as time went on it did get worse.

Woman went to work and the children were free from supervision and lessons of morality. Materialism and lack of supervision was the down fall of the next generations.. a feeling of give me , get me, buy me took its toll as a better life style and spoiled lazy kids became the norm. Not all, but some.. and drugs and what ever feels good was what was the big thing.

Today 50,000 drug deaths a year in the United States and climbing.

Hippies were seen more in the late 60s, not the early 60s. With the summer of love being 1969, most boomers were in their teens or older.

My parents, born in 43, were late silent generation, and they and their friends were not hippies. They were more into Elvis, and other 50s rock and roll.

Didn't you just vote for a guy for President who is notorious for low life behavior, foul language, and a lack of class?
