All too often high street chains whine about how hard it is for them to improve human rights, and how they’d change but consumers don’t want it. It’s become their get out clause.

The world is in an ecological crisis.

We are obligated to rethink past actions. The big question is how shall these problems be solved? Can Buddhism contribute with fresh ideas for a successful sustainable future?
A combination of demographic, technological, and economic trends has accelerated the ability of humans to modify their built and natural habitats.

In New York juxtapose of culture, nationality and language made young people pulse to beat with the music; small clubs appeared such as the Loft, Circus, Xenon and Paradise Garage in 1976. Disco was made for dancing, and the traditional 7-inches vinyl grew to 12 inches as DJs mixed songs to make dancers absorb with the beat. In the early 1970s, the Gay movement and women’s liberation progressed, made people open up and proud. Village people, Grace Jones, Gloria Gaynor, Chaka Khan and Bee Gees made disco popularity grew and together with one of the greatest musicals from last century Saturday Night fever made it massive. DJs and doormen became brand-new stars, and club cultures grow strong, when Studio 54 opens their doors in 1977, it soon became the playground for celebrities.
The 1970s were probably the most exiting decade of the last century, both in politics, youth culture, music and fashion. It was the decade we got introduced to a digital new future, the first home video games as Atari became a youngster biggest wish for x-mas, all we wanted was a digital watch and the electronic pocket calculators made math easy at school. During 1970s, we experienced the flower power culture, in California a group of surfers named z-boys revolutionized skateboarding, and up in the mountains of Yosemite another group of youngsters invented modern sports climbing. They were called dirtbags and should become heroes and icons for people who wanted something else out of life than a regular nine to five job.
Ramones true denim icons and punk rock band wearing faded blue denim jean’s regular fit, straight legs and skinny fit. The Levi 505 zip fly jeans made in the 60s is a genuine classic. Be careful because the Levi, 505 fit today is different and cannot be compared with the 60s or 70s fit. London may have been ground zero for punk, but the loud, manic sounds of the Ramones are 100% American. The bands original four members – Tommy, Johnny, Joey, and Dee Dee all adopted the name Ramones as surname and was in front of an entirely new musical movement
Dirtbags is one of many posts about youth movements and fashion from the 1970s with the main focus on style and looks. Earlier posts are biker culture in America, the hippie’s movement, and pioneers of skateboarders in California around 1975 – 1979. Other important movements and happenings were the punk culture, disco and club culture in New York, 1978 and the mod revival in 1979 that will be posted in the following weeks.
The mod culture fashion and origin roots came from the increasing affluence of post-war Britain; the youths of the early 1960s were one of the first generations that did not have to contribute their money from after-school jobs to the family finances. Therefore, a new shopping culture evolved as young adults and mod teens could use their disposable income to buy stylish clothes, the original youth-targeted boutique clothing stores opened in Carnaby Street and Kings Road districts of London.
In a small pub in Sheffield, one month later the Clash made their first live act as the support act for the sex Pistols. The Clash was larger than punk, more fashionable than the Sex Pistols, and took the best of punk; juxtapose of reggae, working class protest songs and Spanish guitars. Bands as U2 would never have happened if it wasn’t for The Clash, their style changed the attitude of rock and roll, once cool band high on cocaine driven their Rolls Royce into a swimming pool became utterly childish. The and world changed forever the night as Paul Simonon smashing his Fender Precision bass against the stage at The Palladium in New York City on 21 September 1979 during the Clash Take the Fifth US tour; their musical style, featuring elements of funk, soul, jazz ska, pop, soul, jazz, rockabilly, and reggae with lyrics that brilliantly described the life of streets and fear of a young lost generation.
In 1975 came punk one of most important youth cultural movement since the 1950s, in only 18 hectic months punk should change music, fashion and politics. The punk movement became incredible large in America and England and was the young generation voice against the established, bands as Sex Pistols manage to shake up England manage to shake up England and divided the country.
Skating became big in the 1970s; however, almost disappeared before the end in the decade. In America, young surfers waiting restless for waves, and while waiting, they started surfing the streets. The summer 1975 in California was extremely dry; a water restriction forced most pool owners to close their pool, and it wasn’t long until hundreds of swimming pools across L.A fell prey and was drained to conserve precious water. A group of surfers known as Z-boys crew should revolutionize and create modern skateboarding in happened in 1977. The Z-Boys revolutionized skating by presupposing empty pools for vertical skating and in the act invented innovative moves like the front side air (Tony Alva).
A movement that actually started in the early 1960s and exploded with summer of love in 1967; exuberant hippie fashion, as youth culture led by rock idols such as Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin expresses individuality with feathers, fringe, beads, tie-dye, and a rainbow of eclectic ethnic influences. Nevertheless, hippies in the 1970s were vast; music festival was the big thing, four to five days dancing in muddy fields became Utopia for the massive hippies’ movement.
The highways across America became a symbol of freedom; Hells Angels attracted young men offering an alternative lifestyle without a house in the suburbs, mortgage and regular working hours. Inspired by Peter Fonda Captain America films Easy Rider (1969) the culture grows strong and soon became an important part music, fashion and youth culture.
