A moment we can all believe to be always remembered. - ParasN2000
"One small step for man, a giant leap in mankind"
~ Neil Armstrong
The Soviets have Yuri Gagarin as their poster child of communist advancements in space exploration while Armstrong is America's antithesis to that. - Bolshoy_Brat
And this is when the years of American optimism of the 50s died with Kennedy dying along with it. - Bolshoy_Brat

*psst* I heard that the CIA was involved in the Assassination of JFK. - Kevinsidis
Love Me Do.
Yes, I do indeed! What a moment in English history, and eventually the world. That song sparked World Domination. Ok, maybe not quite "World Domination" but it DID have a pretty powerful effect on Planet Earth (musically, at least). - Britgirl
Still don’t get why they thought birth control pills were bad. - Not_A_Weeaboo
Now We in America need to legalize Peyote and LSD... The Legal Pot thing is Great!... Then legalize the legal Sex trade... America would be Really Cool... We are Starting to Chill... That's what the 60s was about... Being Happy 😀
Yah...I added this last, on the realisation that it's only a half of England who actually gives a whatever. And whether you agree / disagree, like it or not, it was a very memorable moment of the 60's. Do I care? Well, that depends on how many English football fans are reading this. Umm...yah, I'm pretty proud of them ;). - Britgirl
And the USA was never the same again - Billyv
The list is heavily America-oriented, I have to admit but this must be one of the more defining features of the decade. A bunch of reformist in Prague tries to instate democratic reforms under a socialist system but it is met with an invasion by the USSR and Warsaw Pact nations. This event really divided the international socialist left and soured the Soviet image of anti-imperialism. - Bolshoy_Brat
