1960s = Pot smoking hippies

2010s = Pot smoking hipsters

1960s = 1968 Nixon Election

2010s = 2016 Trump Election

1960s = Cold War with Soviet Union

2010s = Cold War with Russian Federation

Even in the music industry, I can see some parallels. Music from both decades seems to have a more conscious and less edgy sound than music from the '70s, '80s, '90s, and '00s does.
Best examples of this would be the parallels between bands/artists like the Beatles and Bob Dylan to bands/artists like Twenty-One Pilots and Ed Sheeran.

What do you all think of this?

The 2010s are more like the 1980s in certain aspects. I don’t see a lot of similarities between the 1960s and 2010s with the exception of political upheaval and racial tensions but hell every decade has that, look at the 1980s and 1990s with the Bird/Magic NBA rivalry, Bernard Goetz “The Subway Vigilante”, Yusef Hawkins, Central Park Five case, Charles Stuart in Boston, Rodney King and LA riots, O.J Simpson trial. So don’t let the media fool you guys, racial tension and political upheaval is nothing new in America. But going back the 10s are more similar to the 80s in my opinion.
