Some things on list were. Already brought back throughout the years.

Ex:

bell bottoms - with a different name.

Afros - with a different style/ look.

Gladiator sandal. Smiley faces.

They had more love for each other. Would reach out and help their neighbors.

Employer paid education gave many women the chance to get education and jobs that would never have been possible  otherwise!   And we were loyal to our employers!  That has really changed

Ditto on the music - a lot of it is timeless. I still play my Beatles collection and others quite often. Cars were fun, too, like the Mustang, Corvette, GTO. And the music and songs were often tied together. But I'll pass on the flower-painted vans!


Yes I still listen to all that great music.  My son was amazed when I told him my girlfriend had a Mustang back in the day. All those high school kids driving those high powered cars.  My favorite was the GTO!  Quarter mile racing was popular!  I guess there were some good things!

Hmmm. To me, there wasn't any personal responsibility with us boomers. That's why we're in the mess we/re in today (no, I won't start a political thread).

   I have been down on my fellow boomers for decades because we lived through the greatest expansion of the economy that there ever was, along with vast opportunity for job choice, inexpensive education, on-the-job training, advances in medical treatments.

  And most (imho) people squandered that.
