Jack and Lee 8

I love 1963.

I don’t like the modern world.

1963 was fun.

Life was simple in 1963.

America was happy.

Sure, we had problems.  There are always going to be problems.


Of course there were wars.  Man will never be at peace.  

Are animals at peace?

War is the natural status of man.  Aggression and defense.

A world without war is a world that’s dead.

People say, well, we shouldn’t have war.

I don’t think that’s possible.  Do you?

Well, JFK must have thought so.

Ot at least we came to believe he thought so.

A world without war sounds noble, but it’s not reflective of reality.

You see, the world physically hurtles through the heavens.

Poor Earth is constantly bombarded by cosmic rays and gravitational forces.

Every day is a new event.

Every day poor Earth, our home in a lonely universe, is struck by new solar flares.

These forces change Earth and it’s geography.

Tides rise and fall differently, droughts occur, rivers change course.

This changes our food supply which then affects us.

This  is why we move, and it is that movement that causes war.

Sometimes we get a break.  It’s fun to kick back and enjoy the fruits of life.

That was 1963.

People were happy.

WWII was over.  Korea was over.  And Vietnam was a fly on an elephant’s ass.

That was about to change.
