During the 60s and 70s almost everything and everyone was inspired by space: science, technology, art, design, culture... It was common thought that in the first years of 21st century we'd have at least one habitable colony in our Solar system (Mars). Well, at least I thought so in the 80s. These decades had far more progressive thinking than we had it today. It was far more futuristic society than today. In 1966, three years before man was on the Moon, NASA’s employed 400,000 people and used more than 4% of the US federal budget.These days NASA spends just 0.5% of the same budget. Instead of space exploration, humanity started exploring how to end its existence in most gruesome, savage ways. Instead of colonies on other planets we have a rise of fanatism and stupidity just like in good old dark ages. I know there's no simple answer to this question, but I'd still like to know what happened?
