Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There are a lot of depressing YouTube videos about daily life in Britain in the 1970s. I first went there in 1976 and was shocked, coming from a suburban US upbringing.

It is hard to believe that nostalgia for that period would be supportable, even through the most powerful rose-colored glasses.

Although apparently there is some nostalgia for the USSR, too. I suppose having social systems that provide basic necessities has some advantages.
