So I just did shrooms last week. During my trip I listened to a lot of Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, The Door, Cream, etc. I started think about the movements of that decade. You got the Racial Protest and the Vietnam War going on. And all of sudden this feel good, peace to all, intone with the earth, we are on, culture emerged. How amazing? This whole way of living became expressed through clothes, music, movies, art. Psychedelics.
Then I think of 2013. Looking around us we with feel good vibes about enjoying life. LBGT community receiving equality rights left and right. War in Middle East. I feel we are currently in or in the midst of an exciting revolution.
I love talking to people that have experienced the 1960’s. They express such love for the decade.
What do you guys think?
Think we will look back when I kids ask us about how it was and say that it was a crazy time but fun time?
Mainstream culture is not what defines an era. Nothing can define an era. You could argue that the flower power movement was just an MK Ultra experiment gone out of control. There were tons of movements back then and there are tons of movements today, what is approved to be acceptable is what they show on T.V., accompanied by subtle dogma disguised with bright colors and superficial optimism.
