This topic is for those who where old enough to remember the 60's and 70's. To reminisce on the events of the decades and societal reaction to these event especially as it pertained to the antiestablishment movement who were primarily made up of those under 30. To debate the merits and failures of the anti-establishment movement with the looking glass of  hind sight.

To debate what brought on the anti-establishment movement and question what happened to the antiestablishment movement, Was it a benefit to modern western society or was it merely a societal nuisance or inconvenient truth.

To raise the question, has the anti establish movement really disappear or is it still part of our western culture and spiritual tapestry and if so why do we who where part of this phenomenon, or present during it, and as a witness to it, seem so complaisant and compliant with the establishment today. Where are the naysayers and challengers to the status quos today?

To ask is everything all right today with our society, our governments, our religious bodies and the scientific  community...do we trust them now more than before, do we have confidence in these establishments more now than before.

Do you believe we really have true democracy and  truly democratic forms of government in Western Civilization or are we really just still slaves to the elite and wealthy?

These questions and thoughts were the embodiment of the anti establishment then in the 60's and 70's and I for one profess that we need and revival of the that phenomenon and influence today.

I profess the anti establishment movement was truly a grass roots event and a spiritual consciousness of the common people for the common good of mankind and a check and balancing force to the elite and wealthy power class.

Anyone one want to contribute to or debate these thoughts and opinions?
