Hack #4

My family and I recently went to Disneyland and as we were walking in I couldn’t help but remember how Disneyland was actually related to the Cold War and that time era. The 1950’s were often looked as a time of affluence and strong family values. A big contributor to this and the idea of conformity was the opening of Disneyland. In fact one of the first things you do when you walk into Disneyland is walk down Main Street, Main Street shares many similarities with America’s idealized version of 1950’s suburbia, including a sense of uniformity (we are all sheepol as we walk in lines everywhere), order, community and safety.
