To me the 1950's stand out as a decade having a particularly strange identity. Granted, in their own way the 1960's were even more bizarre, but I'm talking about the introduction of conspicuous mass-marketed popular consumerism, reactionary politics/mores, and.....I'm not sure how else to express this, but a certain strange garrish plastic-ness/artificiality surrounding the pop culture of the era.
You know what I'm talking about?
Do you really like Ike? And WHY was that time period such an unusual one?
