      These protesters were mainly young students who very much believed in America and the American dream.  We knew our society wasn't perfect, but most of us believed that the country was going in the correct direction. So this wasn't rebellion so much as righteous idealism and working to make our society better.

      It was before the disillusionment, perhaps it was the beginning of the disillusionment, which led to Black Bloq nihilism or heavy metal, gothic cynicism.  But perhaps most importantly it was at a time when university education was virtually free, leaving extra pocket money for good clothes.
