The sixties were a time of great change that came with the want to deviate from the social norm. It was a time that could be described as “hedonistic,” but it was also a great counter-cultural era that promoted individualism and denounced conformity. The war in Vietnam only heightened the want for peace and neither the conservatives nor the liberals were ready to admit they were wrong. I personally believe that the want to be a unique individual still exists with us today, and as a fan of the counterculture, I would like to think that the influence of the sixties remains with us in some aspects.
