The groovy era was a time of cultural change, to say the least. The counterculture generation was all about new ideas, tolerance and, yes… bucking the system! That concept, in and of itself, would seem to be somewhat destructive and counterproductive in general, but that was not necessarily the case.

Social norms were beginning to be challenged in the groovy era!

During this time, (mainly) young people were beginning to realize that, although they didn’t speak for everyone, they did have a voice; a voice they were all too willing to use! Hippies, as this demographic was called, joined forces to embark on somewhat of a social revolt. This revolt included all sorts of changes that mainstream America could have never seen coming.
