To be perfectly honest, I'm puzzled by why TV was so clean in the 1950s. The censoring of Elvis and Jim Morrison--these things don't make any sense to me. An entire generation had been to hell and back in World War II--were they unconsciously (or consciously) trying to prevent future generations from seeing what they had seen? What was the deal? Any sociologists want to help me understand? And can we at least provisionally agree that public morals and private actions were more incongruent in the 1950s than they are now, without specifying to what degree? Or am I wrong about that?
