American Culture (1945-1985)

Timothy Leary - American Culture or Some Thoughts On Change (1945-1985)

“As you well-know, I never wanted any credibility. I’m more concerned with incredibility.”

“Now they say that there was a counter-culture [in the Sixties]. There was no counter culture. This was a left-wing, partisan statement. There were 100 counter-cultures. There were as many counter-cultures as there were groups of friends and lovers meeting together to look into each others’ eyes and smile. That’s the point of the Sixties, there was not one orthodoxy being replaced by another orthodoxy. … You make your own world. Don’t blame your parents and don’t blame society. Figure it out for yourself.”
