Online: What did the 'Sixties' bring us: Liberation or Confusion?

On Tuesday, May 19, the Netherlands Atlantic Association organized an online program with American writer Christopher Caldwell, themed:

 

What did the 'Sixties' bring us: Liberation or Confusion?

 

This program focused on the ‘fruits’ of the liberal revolution of the 1960s and its unforeseen political consequences that are being felt today among different classes and generations in the US.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In his latest book Christopher Caldwell reveals the real political turning points of the past half century in the US, taking readers on a roller-coaster ride through Playboy magazine, affirmative action, CB radio, leveraged buyouts, iPhones, Oxycontin, Black Lives Matter, and internet cookies. In doing so, he shows that attempts to redress the injustices of the past have left Americans living under two different ideas of what it means to play by the rules (From: The Age of Entitlement).

 

Christopher Caldwell is a contributing editor at the Claremont Review of Books and a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times. He was previously a senior editor at the Weekly Standard and a columnist for the Financial Times. He is the author of The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties and Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam and the West.
