The rest of this went, uh, right over my head. But, do tell, in what way WAS
the "rest of it" (antiwar movement, women's movement, student movement,
ecology movement, etc.) of "little consequence?" To say nothing of wrong.
Have to say, the antiwar movement was 100% right; the war was an immoral act
of national aggression by our government. Period.
