What the 1960s wrought is what we live with today: a rapidly decaying civilization.

Fred Siegel's The Revolt Against the Masses

Fred Siegel’s The Revolt Against the Masses

“Campus liberals promoted unbridled sexual freedom while raising alarms over sexual harassment. Sorting out the charges was either left to the putative female victim or the campus clarisy, which insisted that the rules for rape would be judged by a shifting standard. At the same time, the call for integration was matched by calls for separate black dorms and curricula. The personal was political, except when it was purely private (as in the right to abort a fetus). In the absence of standards, the clarisy, through its influence in the media and the administration of academia, arrogated to itself the right to define each situation by its own lights.” The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 179.

“While liberals were bent on sniffing out new and arcane examples of discrimination, the utopian promises of the 60s had turned into the dystopian reality of sharply rising crime rates, draconian censorship of free speech on college campuses, and the social disintegration of the cities.” ─The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 179.
