We cannot just go back to the 1950s.
But the revolutions of the 1960s and 1970s had their negative effects on society.
Sex and drugs and rock and roll caused untold suffering from addiction and divorce. Let alone the negative influences in the music.
Death. Depression. Suicide. Evil.....
This period has also seen the demise of the Church.
Hypocrisy, sex-phobia, negative doctrines, moral wowserism, fear, and abuse caused billions of people to abandon institutional Christianity.
But the Church has some good qualities still.
Charity, consideration for others, concern for the poor, compassion for the suffering, faith, fellowship, prayer.....
These are good things which society lacks.
So we can still combine the good things from the Church with the positive aspects of our secular culture.
