Safe Mode: On
A Day In Small Town America In 1952

Gosh the simplicity of these times is so intoxicating, an old 1950's film about the daily life of citizens in a small town of the United States, why is was made is anyone's guess but still some very cool footage.

  • A catalog of extinct jobs...milkmen, telephone operators, neighborhood grocers (almost gone) and, of course, american factory workers making consumer products for Americans...notice the sense of shared duty and community and respect for all occupations (for the concept of an honest day's work) that runs throughout the film...That's what I miss the most.

      You can thank money hungry white collar fuckfaces for the current state of things. Bastards always trying to find a way to save a buck not thinking of the long term consequences. Hard to sell things to consumers when the consumers can't find a fucking job. Those same white collar fuckfaces were absolutely destroying the local waterways/environment during the 50's and 60's before regulations became standard. All because of that mighty dollar.

  • Everybody is well dressed, well mannered, hard working, clean, and personable. Now people are out in rags, have no manners, live off of social services, and are more interested in their smart phone than paying the bills or having deep conversations with others.

    Tell me again how technology and liberalism has made our lives better?

  • the former usa was at its whitest in the 50's, percentage-wise. Still mostly segregated, too, so you could easily be around only other whites if you chose.

    Also was the period with highest standard of living by all measures. I'm sure that's just a coincidence :)

    Again usa was over 95% white. There were only a few thousand Mexicans in the whole country and somehow all the menial jobs still got done and got done well. That's *especially* true in smaller white towns and rural areas where the More..

      Modern farmers NEED mexicans. Just ask one. A white guy these days isn't going to roast in the sun picking lettuce for 20 bucks a day. In fact a white guy isn't going to pick lettuce for 100 bucks a day because we are fucking lazy.

    • @itsnotalive I didn't grow up on a farm, but I grew up in a rural area. We had a large garden and my grandparent's garden was more of a small farm itself, our immediate family couldn't eat everything it produced. That was seasonal, though, of course, but we always had more tomatoes, carrots, squash, melons etc than we could use and had to give a lot of it away to neighbors. We also picked a lot of blackberries and gooseberries on unincorporated land near my grandparents' place.

    • @HappyFrogs we didn't need them before, and with modern machinery we need them even less now. Yes it would hurt those farmers very briefly if the non-whites all disappeared tomorrow, but everything would get better in the long run.

      It's like an addict. They need that shit just to function, you take it away from them cold turkey and it wreaks havoc. But that shit is still killing them. They got hooked by the initial high of making a little more money with cheaper workers. Then they NEEDED it, More..

  • That time period was the height of American civilization, the post-WWII to pre-Vietnam era, before the leftist counter culture kicked in and sent society into a death spiral of perversion and decay. Contrary to what modern propaganda would have you believe via shows like Mad Men, most people back in those days were very decent, upstanding and wholesome individuals.

Our great leaders keeping the poor that way and helping that 1% get tax breaks. Shipping jobs overseas and investing nothing in our infrastructure despite making promises for the last 20 years.
