Technological advancements are the primary reason for the evolution of society. As new developments progress from generation to generation, society molds to the impact created by these breakthroughs in technology. For instance, imagine our society without the inventions of cars, trains, airplanes, boats, computers, the internet, telephones, and all the other forms of technology we use on a daily basis. Nothing would be the same as it is today. Technology is how we get from point A to point B, how we shape our minds and become educated, it is how we stay connected with one another, and the main reason the world can continue to progress and advance as time goes on. The 1960's were a very influential decade for the progression of technology. Groundbreaking discoveries and innovations were at an all time high as more and more people began to think outside of the box and visualize bigger and better things. Without the great minds of the 60's, the United States would be nowhere near being the major world power that it is today, and society would be far less as advanced.
