    This book is a gas I thoroughly enjoyed it It is hilarious and a great adventure story which you wouldn t expect from a bunch of goofy hippies There are quite a number of books set around 1970 in counterculture milieus that give us the stories of radical political groups, who live in squats in the cities and who are busy planning abductions or bomb attacks for the good of mankind Such as The good terrorist by Doris Lessing, or My Revolutions by Hari Kunzu Fine books, but not hilarious i This book is a gas I thoroughly enjoyed it It is hilarious and a great adventure story which you wouldn t expect from a bunch of goofy hippies There are quite a number of books set around 1970 in counterculture milieus that give us the stories of radical political groups, who live in squats in the cities and who are busy planning abductions or ...

    The collapse of the sixties free love movement is perhaps the greatest defeat Western society has endured The flower children believed in a world unshackled to government control and white collar slavery, they believed in an autonomous collective of free love, drugs and sex By listening to the Doors and smoking hash in Californian tepees, they hoped to bring about a social revolution, to overthrow the squares by doing nothing whatsoever Then again, they only believed in this because their bou The collapse of the sixties free love movement is perhaps the greatest defeat Western society has endured T...
