    The modern ones are truly much dumber, so a distinction needs to be made; the older ones never left college or the education system, and proceeded to dumb down the rest of the country as 'academic' careerists.

    The fragmentation of the Democratic Party probably did get Nixon elected of course.

    This is a neat thing though in an odd way. Think of it, people voting for their believes (even if it was for George Wallace) instead of voting for a "team", er political party.

    Could you further explain the "faux left" part of your statement?

    The vast majority of them were middle class and wealthy kids, and anti-liberal in both rhetoric and social behaviors, and very class conscious snobs of the worst sort; not to be confused with the 'Hippy Movement', which was very apolitical and again very much a bourgeois fashion movement than a real leftist movement; not many poor and working class kids could afford the 'lifestyle' of either 'set', and of course the fashion went away and many went on to Wall Street, cocaine, and disco after it got boring and repetitive, moved on the the newest fashions and pop culture trends. A few of the 'hippies' are still around, though. Many of both 'sets' camped out in academia, and continue to peddle their sociopathic crap to the later generations, who seem to glorify them for some reason, I guess because of all the fake stories about how wonderful n stuff they all were 'back in da day' or something. The reality of course was very different and whole lot sleazier.
