Forty years ago this seemed much more important in illustrating that some grown-ups "got" what we thought we were dealing with. It's rather a disappointment now, though as a description of what people who were in close touch with the "baby boomers" as they grew up believed about their society and their future. This is important because we're suffering the hangovers from that time, our politicians are those who grew up breathing the atmosphere in which peace-and-love and sex-and-drugs-and-rock n' roll and protest-marches all existed.
