That's a fact, Jack
Fer sure! I think people don't know what a plastic box America was in in the 50s. In 1963 the Beatles singing "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" sent a shockwave through America. But by 1968, America was a completely transformed place.
Any depth that the country has has to give a nod to the 1960s. What may be 'lost,' for the moment is the Summer of Love feeling. I don't think youth since have been blissful in a way that was possible for that one brief shining moment.
