Time Frame in Mind

by
February–March 1998, no. 198

Why are we still hooked on the 1960s? As English art historian David Mellor said they were the Utopian Years. Perhaps our dreams and aspirations were anchored there. It is a rather difficult period to review with historical accuracy precisely because it was so rich in ideas and ideals; there was so much happening.

Unless we understand the immediate past, we can have no cultural continuity, nor can we fully comprehend the present. The next generation is left to take for granted the benefits of past struggles without understanding. Whether they like to acknowledge it or not, they are the inheritors of this legacy.
