I know video embeds aren't working, so enjoy this link.

 

In a nutshell, 1950s propaganda tells a lot about the state of American culture of the time and even today. It seems to never acknowledge any sort of history, presenting the world as static and unchanging; it also encourages this extremely conformist worldview, telling you directly what it means to be "American" contrary to the popular idea that America has always been about maximum freedom for everyone.

 

It's really weird to imagine a world that has always existed in 1950s American suburbia and always will. I guess that was sort of the conceit of the Fallout series, anyway.

I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.

Sort of like Jordan Peterson ads for the 1950s. Everybody has their place; better know your place; 80-20; man and woman.
