By the time the ’80s and ’90s rolled around, a sort of nostalgia for the 1960s was in vogue. Dressing as a “hippy” was quaint, cute, cool. And there came a revival of pop music from ’60s. And while I won’t argue against the value of that decade’s music (I still think it’s great), I will argue against the wisdom of holding up the 1960s as a great gala of sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.
The 1960s was a HORRIBLE decade. Personally, it was the unhappiest time of my life, and I could argue that, even with all that’s messed up today, the ’60s are among the unhappiest moments in history.
In this episode of the podcast, we go back to 1962, to the Cuban Missile Crisis and its terrifying absurdity and how it signaled the insanity of the years that would follow.
