    This comes off in large part as a rant against a social group you don't like. Very 1950's-white-cop-with-a-buzz-cut scorn here for your fellow leftists.  They have a different culture than yours, so you mock them?  They are not ready to jump into the arms of corrupt to the hilt, violent mainstream politics--this is to be applauded, in my view. Certainly not insulted with such venom.

    Your venom, by the way, is not pragmatic, practical, sensible, responsible, effective or logical, the values for which you supposedly argue.  It is divisive and demeaning and hateful.

      I was in the revolu ..., uh the movem ..., uh the community, uh ...

      The whole thing was swamped by people who wanted to get high, have an orgy, make a lot of noise, party, and act arrogantly nihilistic and self righteous about it. Many of them were as anti-intellectual and anti-science as today's Tea Partiers.

      The main result of it all was to create a backlash, to let right wingers have a "horrible example", the "sixties" that they can blame for everything and use for recruiting.
