Greasers and slicked hair, pomade, doo-wop, rockabilly, Elvis, motorcycles, moral panic.
The Pill, hippies, folk music, fallout shelters, the Twist, surfing, moral panic.
Disco music, long hair for everybody, tie-dye, mood rings, leisure suits, safari jackets, moral panic.
Punk rock and heavy metal, spandex, leg warmers, big hair, mullets and hair crimping, aerobics, shags (on carpets and hair), moral panic.
Video games, rap, selfies, celebrities, texting, skateboarding, tattoos, hair straightening and hair dyed silver, moral panic.
Cultural repositioning is a constant in every society. Each new generation seeks to differentiate itself from the previous one—read that as “differentiate from the rules defined by parents, school and government.”
Change pushes, pulls, debates, argues, defies, impresses, glorifies, vilifies. It is crazy and genius. It is thoughtful and unconsidered. It is frustrating and incomprehensible. It is exciting and exhilarating.
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”—Lao Tzu, 599 BC
