I wouldn't call people who are hell bent on turning America into a Christian theocracy anything less than full blown crazy.

Where it's not diverse? Intellectually. Everyone must think the same ... think the same ... the same ... the same ...
This this and this.

You must be in lock step on every subject or they will eat you.

The hippie movement, which was a selfish, hedonistic pursuit of self gratification had consequences. The devastating expansion of recreational drugs, the decline of the family, and the abandonment of moral guidance through religion were casualties of that movement.

The 60s were essentially a second Renaissance. Like the first renaissance, there was a flowering of art, music, poetry and architecture. Also, a willingness to challenge traditional religious and societal conventions. Were there excesses? Sure, but that's what happens when you increase the diversity of thought; some good ideas and some bad ideas. But without taking the risk, you remain straight-jacketed in old ways of thinking.

Good things: civil rights, women's rights (and freedom of men and women from traditional gender roles), gay rights, some practices borrowed from eastern religions and, of course, rock and roll.

Bad things: drug addiction, civil unrest and increase in unplanned pregnancies

Sad thing; that anti-materialism of the 60s gave way to "greed is good" attitude of the 80s

Let’s hope he doesn’t name a horse to his White House staff.
I doubt AOC will be coming to work at the white house

That there was a need for civil unrest was the bad part, not the civil unrest itself.

200 years ago, “liberal” meant anti-monarchism and unregulated capitalism.

During the New Deal era it meant pro-labor and anti-plutocrat.

During the Vietnam era it meant anti-war and free love.

I’m not sure what it means now, other than blaming white males for all of the country’s problems.

I would be considered a “liberal” by the New Deal era definition.

Good well balanced post. The '60s were a mixed bag. Some good, some not so good. But I was there and I still have a little soft spot for that time. Like Jerry Garcia said: "It was like a window opened up and then it slammed shut."

They think they can just breed out racism. Stupid idiots. Mexico would be a ****ing utopia if that were true.
