Early 70's: People sitting on stoops (stairs leading to up to the entrances to apartment buildings) listening to little transistor radios.

Late 70's: People sitting on these same stoops listening to giant "boom boxes."

High School In 1970 Vs 2015. This Is So Accurate It Hurts.

Scenario 1: Jack goes quail hunting before school and then pulls into the school parking lot with his shotgun in his truck's gun rack.

1970 — Vice Principal comes over, looks a Jack's shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Jack...

2015 — School goes into lock down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.


Scenario 2: Johnny and Mark get into a fist fight after school.

1970 — Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.

2015 — Police called and SWAT team arrives they arrest both Johnny and Mark. They are both charged with assault and both expelled even though Johnny started it.


Scenario 3: Jeffrey will not be still in class, he disrupts other students.

1970 — Jeffrey sent to the Principal's office and given a good shouting by the Principal. He then returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt class again.

2015 — Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin He becomes a zombie. He is then tested for ADD... The school gets extra money from the state because Jeffrey has a disability.

Scenario 4: Billy breaks a window in his neighbor's car and his Dad gives screams at him.

1970 — Billy is more careful next time, grows up normal, goes to college and becomes a successful businessman.

2015 — Billy's dad is arrested for child abuse. Billy is removed to foster care and joins a gang. The state psychologist is told by Billy's sister that she remembers being abused herself and their dad goes to prison.. Billy's mom has an affair with the psychologist.


Scenario 5: Mark gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.

1970 — Mark shares his aspirin with the Principal out on the smoking dock..

2015 — The police are called and Mark is expelled from school for drug violations... His car is then searched for drugs and weapons.


Scenario 6: Pedro fails high school English.

1970 — Pedro goes to summer school, passes English and goes to college.

2015 — Pedro's cause is taken up by state. Newspaper articles appear nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for graduation is racist.. ACLU files class action lawsuit against the state school system and Pedro's English teacher.. English is then banned from core curriculum.. Pedro is given his diploma anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living because he cannot speak English.


Scenario 7: Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers from the Fourth of July, puts them in a model airplane paint bottle and blows up a red ant bed.

1970 — Ants die.

2015 — ATF, Homeland Security and the FBI are all called. Johnny is charged with domestic terrorism.. The FBI investigates his parents —and all siblings are removed from their home and all computers are confiscated. Johnny's dad is placed on a terror watch list and is never allowed to fly again.


Scenario 8: Johnny falls while running during recess and scrapes his knee. He is found crying by his teacher, Mary. Mary hugs him to comfort him.

1970 — In a short time, Johnny feels better and goes on playing.

2015 — Mary is accused of being a sexual predator and loses her job. She faces 3 years in State Prison. Johnny undergoes 5 years of therapy

Yep....this shows it's mostly about "common sense."

We seemed to have lost much of that in this "politically-correct" environment.

I think the examples are a little ridicules. But for the record, Scenario 1. There may have been a time when that could happen, but not in the 1970s. Guns were banned from school campuses in the 1970s. So in that case the student and the Vice Principal would both have been suspended. Though law enforcement would not have been involved, and there would have certainly been no lock down, since that concept didn't exist.

Scenario 3. I had that happen to me many times. I was not allowed to return to class at that time, and I was always given after-school detention for it. Corporal punishment was also a possibility, though somehow or other I always avoided that. Same would have probably been true for Scenario 2.

Scenario 5. A student would not have been sharing aspirin with the Principal on the smoking dock. The high school I went to had a smoking dock, but that was for students. The Principal would have been in his office and he would have likely gotten his aspirin from the school nurse. Searching student's cars and lockers for drugs and weapons was common. But I don't believe bringing aspirin to school would have been a problem.

I agree that the posts were exaggerated but the basic point bieng made is correct. With the guns I was thinking maybe that was true in rural areas.

The only reason you and the principle would interact was if you were in trouble. There was more of a demarkation between adults and “youths” then. In general adults were an authority not your friend. They did not dress, act or listen to the same music as you.

I had games like these
https://www.google.com/search?q=1970+table+hockey&tbm=isch&source=iu&pf=m&ictx=1&fir=jZy3011XomXEfM%253A%252CuViZM_adVT-CyM%252C_&usg=__5r3ZgkL8GIeEJq8TYIYfGkHRXzg%3D&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiIleGGr-DWA

That was the era when there was a lot of fighting in hockey so we would imitate them in the game and all the metal "players" ended up all bent
