45 Years Ago

How far have we come as a nation since that triumph 45 years ago?
Well, for one thing, here is big chunk from the sidebar of the YouTube page linked above. 

A dark age does not come about because a society simply can't do something they did before. That can happen because of a setback, changing conditions or hard times. Rather, a dark age is when the members of a society no longer believe that the society's great accomplishments could have possibly been achieved by mortals. 

Dark ages are bad things.

1 I'm too young to remember the sixties, but I'm told by reliable sources that there was no shortage of idiots; they just didn't have internet access.

As a wise man once said, the stupid you will always have with you.

2 Have you heard that Dark Ages were much better than Roman Empire for a common European? The caloric intake went up, for one. The lovers of the powerful state shed the tears for the fall of Rome, naturally, and they weaved all sorts of myth about the awful Dark Ages, but I'm not sure which one was actually darker. Rome was an awful society.
