Post 1 hour documentary from PBS....

I was in Ohio when Kent State happened. I probably would have been a Viet Nam war protester if I would have been older.

Hunter Thompson makes a pretty strong case that the combination of Altamont and Charles Manson were what caused the end of the idealism. I tend to agree with him as those were both basically cases where hippie ideology was left to run it's own course and resulted in deaths, rather than Kent State where it was government forces that caused the deaths. Also the whole "death of hippie" rally was in what? 1966? 1967?
