Thread Name: Have you told your kids about the 60s?
Subject: RE: Have you told your kids about the 60s?
You hear different people say different stuff.
Martin Carthy once said in an interview - you could liberate yourself in the 1960's - if you didn't liberate yourself, that's your problem.
Jeff Nuttall in his book, Bomb Culture said - our freedom was to give The Beatles their freedom.
In Halloween Story...Agatha Christie has Hercule Poirot say, The Brave New World is always there, but only for special people....and weird it may sound, but I think Hercule got it right.
For Martin Carthy and The Beatles - people like that of spectacular ability, life is full of wonderful possibilities.
But for most of us, we are lucky if we find some interstice in society were we can fit , some service we can perform that they will pay us for and enable us to live with a degree of dignity.
