Many Baby Boomers (those born between 1946 & 1964, now roughly 59 to 77) are prone to waxing nostalgic about the decade of the Sixties. They see it as a time when America and the western world was somehow greater – The Good Old Days – where life was simpler, safer, and filled old-fashioned family values. They seem to perhaps forget that the 1960’s was a turning point for the world. It was, in fact, filled with global wars, tragic assassinations, and political unrest. All of these led to positive, albeit painful, cultural changes for the better, over time.
