    Yes I was a child of the revolution, just not sure what the revolution was...

    Had its pros and cons as each generation does

  3. After the 60s and before the 80s. The 90's, noughties and whatever this decade is called, don't exist its all a matrix :okay:

    Nah after being a 70s fashion victim I went more for the 'Ramones' look, tight jeans a leather bike jacket and T shirt with baseball boots. :becool:

    Within the space of about 5 years (which seemed to last forever) I was a punk, a mod, a suedehead, and a rockabilly (forget the exact order to be honest) :smile:
    Now I just wish I had hair enough to have anything but a very short crop.

    Me too. Loved the 70's as I grew up, Pink Floyd released DSOTM, Tom Baker was the Doctor, Morecambe & Wise taking the mickey out of Andre Previn, Star Wars, the summer of '76......aaah, great days eh?.

    Whatever era you were a child or teenager in was great in hindsight. No responsibilities

    But if you were an adult in the 70s it was, compared to today, pretty crap. People were poorer, less healthy, less socially mobile, less tolerant

    70s or 60s or whatever weren't great, they were crap compared to now. It was your childhood that was great

    And not everyones childhood was unalloyed bliss either.

    Unless you were one of the lucky ones.

    Personally I prefer my version of being a 'grown up'

    I never called it a Ramones look, but that was me in the late 80s

    In some ways but not in others.

    When I was growing up, I recall hearing the phrase from older people 'live and let live'.

    Not a phrase I hear now.

    Hardly a scientific analysis, but it seems to me these days rather than 'live and let live', the more common reaction is to get stuck in on social media.

    There is a great deal of intolerance on this site, often dressed up as 'noble cause', but it's still intolerance.
