Back in the sixties we really believed that we were part of a generation who had woken up to the horrors that our society was creating with its warmongering, hatred, environmental destruction, xenophobia, racism and pollution. We believed we could find a new way forward where money wasn’t the main thing; where we could live more freely and happily in a simpler fashion in harmony with nature.
It proved a short-lived dream. The establishment machine rolled over us and sucked us in. It made profit out of every aspect we stood for and sucked it dry. The ideals were sold back to us as fashion. The machine rolls on crushing all before it.
Back in 1971 Pete was envisioning that new birth into a bright new future away from the drudgery and pollution of the past.
It was a brave new world out there and love was the answer. We were setting off to explore.
