It Seems The Pendulum Swings Again

Forgive me for the musings of a senior citizen.

I was listening to a vintage LP today and thought how suitable the lyrics are to the things going on today. The LP is "The Kingston Trio Time to Think" (Capitol ST 2011). It is roughly 55 years old. That was about the time I stated college and the height of the Vietnam War. The Lyrics deal with patriotism, immigration, prejudices, protests, and hope for the future. The general theme is that things are not going well but we can improve things if we work at it. It seems to me that while we managed to accomplish many things since then the fixes didn't stop the problems from resurfacing again. I can't tell for sure what went on 100 to 110 years ago but I wonder if a similar situation existed then. My musing is that about once every other generation we may have to relearn how to be civil and work together. I hope I am wrong as our means of doing the opposite are growing ever more dangerous and the next time around we might wipe ourselves out.


Good Listening
Bruce
