Two fascinating docos on ’60s radicalism. If you can stand the arrogance and self importance of some of those interviewed, you will gain a lot of insight into what is happening to America today.
These people tried and failed to destroy America in the 1960s.
While America went to sleep in the Reagan and Bush years, these people rose to leadership positions in education, academia, the media, labor unions, etc.
Now they are trying to finish the job they started in their youth.
Some great speeches by a youthful looking Ronald Reagan in the first video. Also some excellent protest songs. I loved the music, if not the movement.

The sad thing is if these 60’s radicals accomplish now what they started in the 60’s they won’t live long enough to have to share the hell they are creating for the rest of us! Most are at least in their 70’s!
I’m sorry, Trevor, I watched like 5 minutes and that was enough.
These commie hippies make me want to puke.
They’re grown up and they all sound just as stupid as they did when they were students.
