My Dog Honey Views America the Beautiful: The status of dogs has significantly increased in America through time. It is hard to imagine, but dogs once were relegated to outdoor dog houses. No, I am not making it up.

Why I Have A Special Fondness for the Early Seventies

Why I Have A Special Fondness for the Early 70’s

I have a particular fondness for the early 70’s. I was a toddler then, so it is really before my time. So it is not due to any personal nostalgia. I liked how there was still a spirit of idealism in society while we had matured as a nation, so to speak. The sort of stiff WASP “Father Knows Best” and suffocating Conformity of American society pushed in the fifties was seen for the very unrealistic sham it was. However, there was still a, how shall I put it, a certain kind of innocent idealism present in society. I don’t know if I can quite put it into words frankly. There was still a gentleness of sorts in society. Some might call this Pollyanna, but it is a Pollyanna I miss. My early seventies subjective bias surely comes through by the number of posts I have of that period.
