  •  A lot of good came out of the 60's (6+ / 0-)

    Everyone was protesting everything - really the Vietnam War and Jim Crow mostly.  That was the heart of it.

    But soon enough we had an environmental movement.  We had a rapidly expanding and growing feminist movement.  We had the United Farm Workers and a push for greater immigrant rights.  

    I'm just glad so many people are out on the streets.  Let it grow.  The culture wars from the 60's won't play out exactly the same way this time, so let it develop as it will.
