I think I found a question that could conceivably fit in any forum but I will put it here.
I was born in 1973 but that is a little young to assume much responsibility. I already know about the big stuff. I am interested in the mass hysteria that seems to have affected everyone around that time. Why was every single thing made to be ugly as possible during that time? You look at everything from clothes to cars to hairstyles to home decor and people before and after that time will almost universally agree that most things were hideous. My parents put in a yellow, avocado green and bright orange kitchen into our house when we built it in 1977. They would never consider doing that today. I know, every period has its odd styles. However, I don’t think that anyone will ever look at photos from say 1995 and burst into hysterics. Likewise, photos from the 1940’s look different but rather elegant and charming. Who caused all this in the 1970’s and why did people go along with it?
