Voices from the past
Welcome to the launch of a year's worth of Vintage Viewpoints! Each monthly posting reflects the perspectives of people in the past regarding the world in which they lived. Recited from primary sources, each selection is a product of the culture and time period in which they were produced. The values from which the statements arose may seem different, outmoded, or even outrageous in our modern culture. Embrace this opportunity to think about the diverse mindsets of past generations.
While an attempt is made to provide a wide selection of viewpoints in this series, logistical constraints prevent us from including every voice of the past. Enjoy the diversity, and let us know if there is a viewpoint that you feel we should research and present in the future.
Coming in January 2020
