Man, the 1960's? My kids have told me how great that decade was.
If we get back to some really good music then all will be well for me.
Can we have a repeat of a Janice Joplin, sometime soon?
And of course, some well placed protests that actually accomplish something in the U.S.
Oh, and I promise to get more involved this time, instead of just enjoying the music and making the best for myself this time around. I really need a good soundtrack to go with my activities.
The 1960's. A brief time when those who recognized what was going on, realized it had become a one party system. Suddenly the Viet Nam War became Nixon's war, and not Johnson's war. Ah, yes. I can see it happening. It is happening, just not gaining ground, yet. Soon, people will begin to see Afghanistan as Obama's war. And, if Obama doesn't completely extricate the U.S. from Iraq, that will be Obama's war.
All in all, the 1960's and the early 1970's became just a "summer of discontent". Let's hope the 2010's become a "year of discontent". Or more.
And let's hope we do really get serious change. Change for the better of humankind.
I hope what I intended to communicate came across well. If not, well, oh, well. I tried.
Meanwhile, I want music raging against all that is bad about governments and human greed, racism, etc.
