Why I Hate The Sixties

First broadcast on BBC Bristol in 2004.

"In the 1960's, we chose the wrong future - and we're still living with that."

Do you agree or disagree? Discuss.

1. I enjoyed the sixties. I became adult, I became educated, I realised I was gay.

2. Can we all please stop worrying about past decisions and past lifestyles?
We did what we did, there's no use in crying over spilt milk! Get over it!

3. Perhaps our attention and energy would be better directed to solving todays problems now.
Not saying we did the wrong thing come 2070!

I miss the 60s. Yes there were loads of problems, issues that were never addressed, and nearly constant changes (i'm kind of allergic to changes myself) - but it was also a time of dreaming big dreams.

Tim said...

Well Russ, don't leave us in suspense! What are your thoughts?

Russ Manley said...

Actually I quite agreed with most of the observations made in the film. Unlike you damn hippies! Grin.

Tim said...

Like squaresville man, chill out, and pass the weed!

Davis, I think Russ would have been happier in the 1860's, nearer his DOB!

Russ Manley said...

A century off as usual - my day and time was the 1760's, when the Empire was at its peak, America was the jewel in the crown, and the riff-raff knew their place.

And that's enough out of you - bloody Socialist!


Davis said...

Glad to know there are '60s that Russ approves of anyway.

Seriously the late 60s don't hold an appeal for me, it was the first half of the decade to I still find myself nostalgic for.

Don't have time to watch the video, but to quote an old 60's popular radio soliloquy: "And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should." Now, pass the medical marijuana.
