Fifty years after the Summer of Love, the aftershocks reverberate.
There would be many casualties during and after the Sixties, including, finally and spectacularly, American political culture as it had been known since the Enlightenment. God and country began to dissolve, and with this, the moral axioms and civil assumptions that had ruled U.S. society since the founding of the republic. It took decades for the “regime of truth” to fade as completely as it has, but today’s social convulsions and fault lines descend from the Summer of Love.
Read, and understand, and consider the possibility that the most recent presidential election may be nothing more than the continued tussle between the freaks and the jocks, only for higher stakes than the parking lot of the local hang-out.
