Society and the way of life have changed so much since then. Dude would spend the rest of his life in a halfway house. If I were him, after being in there so long, I wouldnt even bother wanting to come out. I've heard of some prisoners after serving many years behind bars then being released, end up wanting to go back to prison because of the change of civilization in which they couldnt handle.
The only difference between 1974 and 2013 is technology. Otherwise, life is life, whatever the year. You still need money, you still need security, food, & shelter. So what if you never held a DVD or CD in your hands? So what if you can't download MP3's? So what if you never operated a microwave before - it isn't much of a learning curve to press the 2 minute button.
Ronnie, or any other paroled prisoner from the 70s, would do just fine, just so long as they had some kind of money to fall back on. With all those years in prison - if they don't have some kind of college degree by now
, then they can flip burgers at McDonalds - after all, they had
McDonalds in the 70's.
