1960s in the United States The sixties was a decade filled with social, cultural, and political changes. A large part of the population were teenagers and young adults due to the baby boom after World War II. The young generation had a different way of thinking, and were less conservative compared to their parents. The changed they had had an impact on all aspects of life, including lifestyles, values, and entertainment. The hippie movement was during this decade too. It referred to the attitude of the young adults in the United States and how they feel toward the government. During this time, men were drafted to fight in the Vietnam War, and many people were resentful towards the gov- ernment as they did not support the war. Questioning authorities, people in power, and the gov- ernment was typical of “hippies.” They let their hair grow out very long, and did other rebellious things which were out of the norm in society.
