retrocampaigns:

Lyndon Johnson campaigns for re-election in Cadillac Square, Detroit, September 7, 1964

Johnson doesn’t mention Barry Goldwater by name, but speaks about an issue that marked a stark separation between the candidates that year: nuclear weapons. Goldwater had called for the arming of NATO forces with “conventional” nuclear weapons:

Make no mistake. There is no such thing as a conventional nuclear weapon.

For 19 peril-filled years no nation has loosed the atom against another. To do so now is a political decision of the highest order.

And it would lead us down an uncertain path of blows and counterblows whose outcome none may know.

No President of the United States of America can divest himself of the responsibility for such a decision.

A, symposion. Youth reclining facing left, a kylix in each hand. Foot and about 1/3 of wall and lip preserved.
Italy, Etruria, Orvieto
Archaic Greek Period
Date Made: c. 500 BC
Penn Museum

It’s hard to believe that, as little as five years ago, I could identify all the different types of Greek vases and columns. Why does a ninth grader needs to distinguish a kylix from an amphora from a kantharos? Don’t ask me, I just work here.

“A suggestion to future foreign capital builders, 09/03/1914”
From the series: Berryman Political Cartoon Collection, 1896 - 1949

With several European capitals quickly overrun in the first month of World War I and Paris under siege, Berryman offers some humorous ideas for rapidly moving the capitol buildings of threatened countries to safer places.

It’s nice to know that 100 years ago that editorial cartoons were just as vapid and pointless as they are today.

This is a very enlightening article and it can be read in it’s entirety here, but it should also be noted that for all the restrictions listed, things were worse and even more restrictive for Black and other non-White women. And, while hinted at, this cannot be emphasized enough: some of the biggest beneficiaries of the Civil Rights Act and Affirmative Action were and are White women

History time! Get a little knowledge in your day.

"I don’t need feminism because all of this was so long ago no one even remembers" or something else facepalmy.
