Neatly Put ...

Scott at Blithering Bunny on the 60s legacy, good and bad.

The good bits of the 60's are here to stay. For example, (1) being nice to people, (2) not treating badly or hating someone just because they're a different colour, (3) greater personal freedom.

But notice how vague all these mantras are? That's what allowed them to mutate into (1) being nice to people even if they're crazed psychopaths out to destroy Western civilization, (2) treating someone as innocent or even justified because they're a different colour, (3) lauding every "lifestyle choice", no matter how destructive, and making everyone else provide the funding for it.
