I've found that the majority of those that look back to the 50's as the golden age are white men.

"Foucault's Pendulum" makes a joke about that. Everyone feels as if they were born in the wrong era.

Wrong question. Haven't we been saying that a "delusional fantasy era" does not exist?
Maybe we could ask everyone to name one single year they'd have liked to live in, and give reasons why.

Mine, probably 1993.

I think I'm far too addicted to internet to be wanting to live in another time where it doesn't exist,

Paris, 1920s.



also, the 1950s (shock) in New York were pretty cool.

Prague in the early 1990s.

Well I think the 1980's are very much maligned and misunderstood.

Mid 60's to Mid 70's. East Coast, West Coast. What a musical period. It had the fantasy element even then. Herbal perhaps

I want to live in the distant future, where I'm a transcendant energy being and time-space is officially meaningless.

I don't think I fully appreciated the 1990s when they were actually happening. That time seems like paradise compared to what things are like now, both politically and culturally.

2017, because by then, I will have subjugated the world and will be the Benevolent Dictator of the Planet. U2 will be injected with the serum of youth so they can play concerts for me and my family in our palace's theatre every night.

Could I be your loyal underling in charge of, say, Russia?

I wanted Russia for myself ... but if you can convince Melbourne and the rest of Victoria to surrender without offering any resistance, I can be persuaded otherwise.

I'll agree with Angela, there's both good and bad parts of all decades. Personally, I'd like to be in Britain in the 60s, or late 70s/early 80s, for no other reason than the fact that the music coming out then just totally rocked and I would've enjoyed seeing bands I love that were just starting out .

But seriously, as for the topic at hand, there's days I watch the news and just get frustrated with some people, but at the same time, I refuse to lose hope and faith in humanity. I know there are good people out there-my family's experienced the kindness of strangers on numerous occasions, and plus, in the huge pile of bad news stories I do occasionally hear the good one squeak through every now and again, and I really do think most people in this world are safe to be around. It's only a few loons that tend to marr the image of the human race sometimes, which I think is rather sad and unfair. Plus, this hope keeps my sanity going .

So yeah, I'm a "glass half-full" kind of girl in regards to this subject .

Angela
