To live through the 1950's and '60's in Penrith, Cumberland, recording events and experiences for the Time Patrol - I would:
see my mother and younger self attending a Latin-rite Catholic Church;
read the newspapers, knowing in general what was to come;
watch the two British TV channels - in fact, only one of them accessible there until some time in the '60's;
avoid political arguments - what would be the point, knowing in advance the outcome of every election and the long term future of mankind?
A time traveler can more easily adopt the non-attached but hopefully also compassionate attitude that some of us approach through meditation.
