    1968 is when Universities gave out draft waivers for cash. The Civil Rights movement was just our public education system cashing in on the war.

    All you needed was a bag of weed and rich parents and you didn’t have to go to Vietnam.

    The 60s ripped down solid social institution (like marriage, the family structure, universities worth their salt etc…) and replaced them with dysfunction , the “me” generation, abortion for profit…… basically nothing good….

    And we wonder why the world is as messed up as it is today…..
