The true 60's as they are remembered took place between 1965 and 1974. Disco took off in the late 70's, etc.
    disco developed in the early 70s. by the time saturday night fever came out, it was already mainstream and had already run its course through underground clubs. 1979 marks the year where disco records were burned in chicago.

    woodstock was already teh end of the hippie movement. the vietnam war might have last a few more years, but king and x and jfk had already been killed and woodstock was essentially the mainstream festival to be at, not like the be in's of san francisco.

    the 80s? berlin wall came down in 89

    As for the noughts, they started off with a bust of 90s first wave interenet technology and w. soon helped roll the ball of shit down the mountain to fuck everythign else up. History could definitely peg this decade as the decline of the american empire. Musically, perhaps the decade of autotune? It is incredible how much pop music uses autotuned vocals these days. Cher was a pioneer, lol.

    it would make sense that cultural decades more or less start and end between yeas ending with 0 as people do see the end of a numerical decade as the chance for rebirth.

    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Because history has a way of making us look like fools.

    I think people will look back as more info comes out. They'll say, how the fuck did this go on. Who voted for Bush twice. Why wasn't he impeached.


    I'm not sure how to answer that yet.
    A meme that makes me laugh and cry. Even Bush is preferred over crazy Trump.

    But Trump must not make us forget, Bush *was* an idiot.

    There'll be no path forward in pining for the failures of the past.

    Sure but if someone were to offer me the swap, I'd take it, no questions asked.
