From my website 'Still in the Fifties':
Admitting that you’re ‘still in the fifties’ to a certain class of people is like saying you’ve been in jail to the average person, with the difference that the disqualification from the first group would be full and irredeemable. Luckily it does not worry me in the least to suffer such an ancient form of exile.
To boast that one is still in the fifties is of course not to entertain some grandiose idea of transporting our Western society in some sort of Star Trek mechanism back through time. There is no beaming us back in that sense – to state the obvious. But there is the ethos of the 1950s – an outlook that still exists, even if only as an ideal for some ... read more
