I've always been a huge advocate that history repeats itself many times over, and especially in the 20th and 21st century, with so much information at our disposal you come across some gems. I have been on a crusade to find some old footage and speeches from the past. More to come.

I found this clip and an amazing Youtube channel.



Which clearly shows that some ideas and mindsets never really change.

Enjoy a piece of American political history.

22 minute video. Care to post a summary or some bullwt points? Or is this a site where we just drop a Yourube video and say "Great video about history. Enjoy." ??

If it was a documentary I'd summarize it. But it's literally just a speech of Barry Goldwater speaking.

The funny thing about Barry Goldwater is Hillary Clinton admits in her book she worked on his presidential campaign in college. As I've said for the years. The Clintons are NOT democrats. The Clintons are Nixon Republicans.

Turn on, tune in, drop out

"Turn on, tune in, drop out" is a counterculture-era phrase popularized by Timothy Leary in 1966. In 1967, Leary spoke at the Human Be-In, a gathering of 30,000 hippies in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and phrased the famous words, "Turn on, tune in, drop out". It was also the title of his spoken word album recorded in 1966. On this lengthy album, Leary can be heard speaking in a monotone soft voice on his views about the world and humanity, describing nature, Indian symbols, "the meaning of inner life", the '___' experience, peace, and many other issues.

You can't watch your video without understanding the context of what was happening during this time.

And everyone who runs your ideology isn't actually what they explicitly say that they are but are actually the ideology you hate.

You literally define the word projection.

It's fascinating to watch and actually entertaining in a way.

Kinda like watching a bird with no wings trying to fly.

Keep posting!!!!

They also said "live and let live" and "don't trust anyone over 30" but the same people want to vote Bernie and demonize anyone who isn't a part of a victim class. Funny how that works.

That said, I watched about half the video, and yes you are right, it was a different era. Different games were at play.

It is interesting how the "counter-culture" has been 100% flip-flopped from peace-and-love to punch-whomever-you-feel-is-a-Nazi though.

Perhaps the state won that war with flying colors.

Yeah, and you should still provide a summary or bullet points. Total fail.

I very much doubt "punch-whomever-you-feel-is-a-Nazi" is prevalent. Most ex-hippies I know just don't really care about that much about politics. Not everyone on the left is member of Antifa. If you read about Antifa it's not very well organized.

Like everything on the left, there's no one in charge. This is what makes the left so great. We have no leaders. People on the left simple can't follow authority. Where as people on the right love authority and worship their cults of personality.

I find it really humorous how the right plays the victim card. Do you feel "punched" for being called a Nazi?

Why do you think Barry Goldwater did not win?

Is that a serious question? We all know why he lost, look at who he was up against.

I was part of antifa... Back before they were in the news. I know them. ...and they definitely don't like me. I had a government sanctioned gang after me for three years. All because I asked questions. That's on record. So yes, I feel "punched" for being a "Nazi". ...and stabbed for that matter.

Also I know this doesn't describe most Dems. At least I hope so... I was one of them for years.

ETA: My father was a black panther. So the folks I know from that era are still very much into politics. FYI he is kind of indifferent at this point because he is well-read and knows sh!t from shinola.

I wonder if the conservatives who had their hearts broken when Goldwater lost the election felt the reason why they lost the election was because Barry was NOT conservative enough! Just like the way conservatives do today when ever their candidate loses! That would be fascinating to know.

I think it has more to do with how a president was assassinated and Johnson took the helm.

There are literally multiple police reports on record of me being harassed and literally stabbed by these people. Thicker skin!? Are you insane?

BTW, I didn't let them. They got one good stab and multiple people in the hospital in their end, thank you very much.

I've never been a Republican. Just like separation of church and state, I think we need separation between corporations and state.

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." Benito Mussolini

Whenever we let the corporations run the state we have endless wars and workers wages become depressed.

Purchasing power of the consumer dollar

I believe in FDR's words which is why I am a socialist Democrat:

"An old English judge once said: 'Necessitous men are not free men.' Liberty requires opportunity to make a living - a living decent according to the standard of the time, a living which gives man not only enough to live by, but something to live for.

For too many of us the political equality we once had won was meaningless in the face of economic inequality. A small group had concentrated into their own hands an almost complete control over other people's property, other people's money, other people's labor - other people's lives. For too many of us life was no longer free; liberty no longer real; men could no longer follow the pursuit of happiness.

Against economic tyranny such as this, the American citizen could appeal only to the organized power of government."
