Powerful social protest movements were out to get their voices heard, and to change the attitudes of the grey - beards.Post War prosperity lit the fire and desire for the emergence of the newly invented phenomena of " the teenage generation" which surprised and shook the establishment by the scruff of the neck on both sides of the Atlantic.John F. Kennedy was a breath of fresh air and a generational shift.
