    The USA of 60 years ago gave us the Cold War, McCarthyism, the Vietnam War, and the Korean War. Segregation was in full swing, with significant resistance to rulings like Brown v. Board of Education and its implications.

    You'd have far more success arguing that 50 years ago was superior given how much of that decade was push back against the 50s.

    I never said it was perfect, but far superior to what is going on now.

    The quote in the op was in regards to architecture. Not so much the cold war and such.

    You have a hair trigger today, dude. I'm going to send you some Colorado weed.

    Nothing wrong with the first one, and the US didn't start the last two anymore than it started the Cold War.

    Segregation is nothing compared to abortion.

    50 years ago was the demonic boomer generation beginning to fulfill its role as THE Antichrist.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.
