"I know where my country lies - 1973."

Ah - nostalgia - oil crisis, three day weeks, strikes, new cars that rusted very quickly, inflation.

On the other hand - in the 1970s there was a feeling in the young of a future free from censorship and religion as social control. Short shorts and hot pants suggested eternal summers. Gay and Women's Lib was taking shape - and sex became seen as a pleasure rather than a procreative duty. Then the 1979 General Election turned the clock back again.
