    I was in the revolu ..., uh the movem ..., uh the community, uh ...

    The whole thing was swamped by people who wanted to get high, have an orgy, make a lot of noise, party, and act arrogantly nihilistic and self righteous about it. Many of them were as anti-intellectual and anti-science as today's Tea Partiers.

    The main result of it all was to create a backlash, to let right wingers have a "horrible example", the "sixties" that they can blame for everything and use for recruiting.
