            60s THEORY

Love is the answer

Timothy leary said we should Tune in , turn on and drop out.

 

 

We get back to American Exceptionalism.  We’re going to make a perfect world.

 

We must grow our own food.  We mustpolute less and have immediate gratification.  We must have a commune.

 

1 --Love is the answer--

What we want is love!!

If we had love, we wouldn’t kill vietnamese! Make love, not war.

With love we wouldn’t try to fill our lives with empty stuff and kill the environment.

We should love women as people, not objects to use.

why are we afraid of gay people?  What of free love?  People who love are less harmful than people who war. Timothy leary said we should just “Tune in turn on and drop out”.

 

Ex #1

Life is work is empty

And, its all about buying things for your house.  The new car, the new tv.  Because your life is empty.

Dad is a work robot.  Mother is a cook robot.  Children are school robots.

 

Ex. #2

Cold War

MAD Mutually Assured Destruction

How many dollars do we spend on the military?

How many on schools?

How many people are starving

 We don’t hate the russians and they don’t hate us. The politicians have us in a knot. Work work work

Society is like a machine and now we’ve become like machines.  Little machine houses for little machine people.
