Summary:
This issue of the Pioneer Press includes an article called "The Lazy American". In 1960’s the world was changing. Gone was the time of trusting every word that was said. A huge divide was rumbling not only in the U.S. but around the world. Some people saw this change an act of evil. Fundamentalist Christians saw this time as an attack on morals. Most attention in the media was on the progressive movements going on at that time. There were just as many people who did not support this movement especially conservatives. The author talks about the “lazy Americans” the Americans who question everything but gets nothing done.
