Generation GapsSubmitted by busted on Sat, 08/17/2013 - 19:55
Since my college days, mid 60's, many more things have changed to dump down the next generations. The young of the 60's were instrumental in stopping the Vietnam War. If the media told the truth today a LOT would change.
Unfortunately, in the 60's people died on the campuses. Is it possible to have a PEACEFUL demonstration today?
The Vietnam War Protests
"Extensive media coverage brought the violent and bloody guerrilla war home each night to every American living room. People realized that the glowing reviews of the war effort their government had been releasing were "sanitized" and far from the truth. Even congressional senators began questioning Vietnam policies. Through it all the bombings continued and more and more of America's young GI's came home in body bags.
Once the draft was introduced young people on college and university campuses all around the country began to organize protests against the war."
