Making Sense of the Sixties, Make-up discussion

Since Youtube has now made the clips for rent only, if you have not made-up the discussion yet, here is what you must do:

Write a brief essay, reflecting on the rise and decline of the Sixties counterculture. Discuss the idealism of the early Sixties and how the Sixties ended up in decline by the end of the decade. Comment on such things as the Hippies, relationships between students, parents and colleges and the idea of test limits and breaking barriers. Did the Sixties go too far?

This should be word-processed, about a page long and double spaced.
