Opposition to the Vietnam War began in on United States college campuses. Student activism became a dominant theme among the baby boomers, growing to include many other demographic groups. Exemptions and deferments for the middle and upper classes resulted in the induction of a disproportionate number of poor, working-class, and minority registrants. Countercultural books such as MacBird by Barbara Garson and much of the counterculture music encouraged a spirit of non-conformism and anti-establishmentarianism.
By , the year after a large march to the United Nations in New York City and a large protest at the Pentagon were undertaken, a majority of people in the country opposed the war. The application of nuclear technology , both as a source of energy and as an instrument of war, has been controversial. Scientists and diplomats have debated the nuclear weapons policy since before the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in In , at the height of the Cold War , about 50, women brought together by Women Strike for Peace marched in 60 cities in the United States to demonstrate against nuclear weapons.
Some local opposition to nuclear power emerged in the early s,  and in the late s some members of the scientific community began to express their concerns. The project was cancelled in and anti-nuclear success at Wyhl inspired opposition to nuclear power in other parts of Europe and North America. The role of women as full-time homemakers in industrial society was challenged in , when US feminist Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique , giving momentum to the women's movement and influencing what many called Second-wave feminism.
Other activists, such as Gloria Steinem and Angela Davis , either organized, influenced, or educated many of a younger generation of women to endorse and expand feminist thought. Feminism gained further currency within the protest movements of the late s, as women in movements such as Students for a Democratic Society rebelled against the "support" role they had been consigned to within the male-dominated New Left, as well as against manifestations and statements of sexism within some radical groups.
The pamphlet Women and Their Bodies , soon expanded into the book Our Bodies, Ourselves , was particularly influential in bringing about the new feminist consciousness. The s counterculture embraced a back-to-the-land ethic, and communes of the era often relocated to the country from cities. Counterculture environmentalists were quick to grasp the implications of Ehrlich's writings on overpopulation , the Hubbert " peak oil " prediction, and more general concerns over pollution , litter , the environmental effects of the Vietnam War, automobile-dependent lifestyles, and nuclear energy.
More broadly they saw that the dilemmas of energy and resource allocation would have implications for geo-politics, lifestyle, environment, and other dimensions of modern life. The "back to nature" theme was already prevalent in the counterculture by the time of the Woodstock festival, while the first Earth Day in was significant in bringing environmental concerns to the forefront of youth culture. At the start of the s, counterculture-oriented publications like the Whole Earth Catalog and The Mother Earth News were popular, out of which emerged a back to the land movement.
The s and early s counterculture were early adopters of practices such as recycling and organic farming long before they became mainstream. The counterculture interest in ecology progressed well into the s: particularly influential were New Left eco-anarchist Murray Bookchin , Jerry Mander 's criticism of the effects of television on society, Ernest Callenbach 's novel Ecotopia , Edward Abbey 's fiction and non-fiction writings, and E. Schumacher 's economics book Small is Beautiful.
It became notorious for being associated with property violence and threats committed without official approval of the organization, from a incident when two members were crushed under the rear wheels of a cattle truck, for orchestrating the withholding of commodities, and for opposition to coops unwilling to withhold. During withholding protests, farmers would purposely destroy food or wastefully slaughter their animals in an attempt to raise prices and gain media exposure.
The NFO failed to persuade the U. The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, , at the Stonewall Inn , a gay bar in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. This is frequently cited as the first instance in US history when people in the gay community fought back against a government-sponsored system that persecuted sexual minorities, and became the defining event that marked the start of the Gay rights movement in the United States and around the world.
San Francisco's flower children , also called "hippies" by local newspaper columnist Herb Caen , adopted new styles of dress, experimented with psychedelic drugs , lived communally and developed a vibrant music scene. Some hippies formed communes to live as far outside of the established system as possible. This aspect of the counterculture rejected active political engagement with the mainstream and, following the dictate of Timothy Leary to " Turn on, tune in, drop out ", hoped to change society by dropping out of it.
Looking back on his own life as a Harvard professor prior to , Leary interpreted it to have been that of "an anonymous institutional employee who drove to work each morning in a long line of commuter cars and drove home each night and drank martinis As members of the hippie movement grew older and moderated their lives and their views, and especially after US involvement in the Vietnam War ended in the mids, the counterculture was largely absorbed by the mainstream, leaving a lasting impact on philosophy, morality, music, art, alternative health and diet, lifestyle and fashion.
In addition to a new style of clothing, philosophy, art, music and various views on anti-war, and anti-establishment, some hippies decided to turn away from modern society and re-settle on ranches, or communes. According to Timothy Miller,. Drop City brought together most of the themes that had been developing in other recent communities-anarchy, pacifism, sexual freedom, rural isolation, interest in drugs, art-and wrapped them flamboyantly into a commune not quite like any that had gone before .
Many of the inhabitants practiced acts like reusing trash and recycled materials to build Geodesic domes for shelter and other various purposes; using various drugs like marijuana and LSD, and creating various pieces of Drop Art. After the initial success of Drop City, visitors would take the idea of communes and spread them. Another commune called "The Ranch" was very similar to the culture of Drop City, as well as new concepts like giving children of the commune extensive freedoms known as "children's rights".
During the s, this second group of casual lysergic acid diethylamide LSD users evolved and expanded into a subculture that extolled the mystical and religious symbolism often engendered by the drug's powerful effects, and advocated its use as a method of raising consciousness. The popularization of LSD outside of the medical world was hastened when individuals such as Ken Kesey participated in drug trials and liked what they saw. In , Sandoz laboratories stopped its still legal shipments of LSD to the United States for research and psychiatric use, after a request from the US government concerned about its use.
As most research on psychedelics began in the s and 50s, heavy experimentation made its effect in the s during this era of change and movement. Researchers were gaining acknowledgment and popularity with their promotion of psychedelia. This really anchored the change that counterculture instigators and followers began.
Most research was conducted at top collegiate institutes, such as Harvard University. Timothy Leary and his Harvard research team had hopes for potential changes in society. Their research began with psilocybin mushrooms and was called the Harvard Psilocybin Project. In one study known as the Concord Prison Experiment , Leary investigated the potential for psilocybin to reduce recidivism in criminals being released from prison. After the research sessions, Leary did a follow-up. But with many officials skeptical, this breakthrough was not promoted. Because of the personal experiences with these drugs Leary and his many outstanding colleagues, Aldous Huxley The Doors of Perception and Alan Watts The Joyous Cosmology believed that these were the mechanisms that could bring peace to not only the nation but the world.
As their research continued the media followed them and published their work and documented their behavior, the trend of this counterculture drug experimentation began. Leary made attempts to bring more organized awareness to people interested in the study of psychedelics.
He confronted the Senate committee in Washington and recommended for colleges to authorize the conduction of laboratory courses in psychedelics. He noted that these courses would "end the indiscriminate use of LSD and would be the most popular and productive courses ever offered". The change they sought for the world had not been permitted by the political systems of all the nations these men pursued their research in. Ram Dass states, "Tim and I actually had a chart on the wall about how soon everyone would be enlightened We found out that real change is harder.
We downplayed the fact that the psychedelic experience isn't for everyone. Leary and his team's research got shut down at Harvard and everywhere they relocated around the globe. Their outlawish behavior and aggressive approach with these drugs did not settle well with the law. Officials did not agree with this chaotic promotion of peace. Research with psychedelic drugs and those who conducted it was a radical understanding for the vast majority of the world.
However, it did create a change. A ripple of curiosity was created as a result and the wave is continuing to swell. Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters helped shape the developing character of the s counterculture when they embarked on a cross-country voyage during the summer of in a psychedelic school bus named "Furthur". These trials tested the effects of LSD, psilocybin, mescaline , and other psychedelic drugs. After the medical trials, Kesey continued experimenting on his own, and involved many close friends; collectively they became known as "The Merry Pranksters".
The Pranksters visited Harvard LSD proponent Timothy Leary at his Millbrook , New York retreat, and experimentation with LSD and other psychedelic drugs, primarily as a means for internal reflection and personal growth, became a constant during the Prankster trip. The Pranksters created a direct link between the s Beat Generation and the s psychedelic scene; the bus was driven by Beat icon Neal Cassady , Beat poet Allen Ginsberg was on board for a time, and they dropped in on Cassady's friend, Beat author Jack Kerouac - though Kerouac declined to participate in the Prankster scene.
Experimentation with LSD, peyote , psilocybin mushrooms , MDA , marijuana , and other psychedelic drugs became a major component of s counterculture, influencing philosophy, art , music and styles of dress. Jim DeRogatis wrote that peyote, a small cactus containing the psychedelic alkaloid mescaline, was widely available in Austin, Texas , a countercultural hub in the early s. The sexual revolution also known as a time of "sexual liberation" was a social movement that challenged traditional codes of behavior related to sexuality and interpersonal relationships throughout the Western world from the s to the s.
Underground newspapers sprang up in most cities and college towns, serving to define and communicate the range of phenomena that defined the counterculture: radical political opposition to " The Establishment ", colorful experimental and often explicitly drug-influenced approaches to art, music and cinema, and uninhibited indulgence in sex and drugs as a symbol of freedom. The papers also often included comic strips, from which the underground comix were an outgrowth.
As numbers of young people became alienated from social norms, they resisted and looked for alternatives. The forms of escape and resistance manifest in many ways including social activism, alternative lifestyles, dress, music and alternative recreational activities, including that of throwing a Frisbee. From hippies tossing the Frisbee at festivals and concerts came today's popular disc sports. The Situationist International was a restricted group of international revolutionaries founded in , and which had its peak in its influence on the unprecedented general wildcat strikes of May in France.
With their ideas rooted in Marxism and the 20th-century European artistic avant-gardes , they advocated experiences of life being alternative to those admitted by the capitalist order , for the fulfillment of human primitive desires and the pursuing of a superior passional quality. For this purpose they suggested and experimented with the construction of situations , namely the setting up of environments favorable for the fulfillment of such desires.
Using methods drawn from the arts, they developed a series of experimental fields of study for the construction of such situations, like unitary urbanism and psychogeography. They fought against the main obstacle on the fulfillment of such superior passional living, identified by them in advanced capitalism. Their theoretical work peaked on the highly influential book The Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord.
Debord argued in that spectacular features like mass media and advertising have a central role in an advanced capitalist society, which is to show a fake reality in order to mask the real capitalist degradation of human life.
Raoul Vaneigem wrote The Revolution of Everyday Life which takes the field of " everyday life " as the ground upon which communication and participation can occur, or, as is more commonly the case, be perverted and abstracted into pseudo-forms. Fluxus a name taken from a Latin word meaning "to flow" is an international network of artists, composers and designers noted for blending different artistic media and disciplines in the s.
They have been active in Neo-Dada noise music , visual art , literature, urban planning , architecture, and design. Fluxus is often described as intermedia , a term coined by Fluxus artist Dick Higgins in a famous essay. Fluxus encouraged a " do-it-yourself " aesthetic, and valued simplicity over complexity. Like Dada before it, Fluxus included a strong current of anti-commercialism and an anti-art sensibility, disparaging the conventional market-driven art world in favor of an artist-centered creative practice. As Fluxus artist Robert Filliou wrote, however, Fluxus differed from Dada in its richer set of aspirations, and the positive social and communitarian aspirations of Fluxus far outweighed the anti-art tendency that also marked the group.
In the s, the Dada-influenced art group Black Mask declared that revolutionary art should be "an integral part of life, as in primitive society, and not an appendage to wealth. During the early s, Britain's new wave of musicians gained popularity and fame in the United States. Artists such as the Beatles paved the way for their compatriots to enter the US market. The music of the s moved towards an electric, psychedelic version of rock, thanks largely to Bob Dylan's decision to play an electric guitar at the Newport Folk Festival.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The single " Good Vibrations " soared to number one globally, completely changing the perception of what a record could be. However, the project collapsed and The Beach Boys released a stripped down and reimagined version called Smiley Smile , which failed to make a big commercial impact but was also highly influential, most notably on The Who 's Pete Townshend.
The Beatles went on to become the most prominent commercial exponents of the "psychedelic revolution" e. While the hippie scene was born in California ,   an edgier scene emerged in New York City  that put more emphasis on avant-garde and art music. Bands such as The Velvet Underground came out of this underground music scene, which was predominantly centered at Andy Warhol 's legendary Factory.
The Velvet Underground supplied the music for the Exploding Plastic Inevitable , a series of multimedia events staged by Warhol and his collaborators in and Detroit's MC5 also came out of the underground rock music scene of the late s. They introduced a more aggressive evolution of garage rock which was often fused with sociopolitical and countercultural lyrics of the era, such as in the song "Motor City Is Burning" a John Lee Hooker cover adapting the story of the Detroit Race Riot of to the Detroit riot of MC5 had ties to radical leftist organizations such as " Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers " and John Sinclair 's White Panther Party ,  : and MC5 performed a lengthy set before the Democratic National Convention in Chicago , where an infamous riot subsequently broke out between police and students protesting the Vietnam War and the recent assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Austin was also home to a large New Left activist movement, one of the earliest underground papers, The Rag , and cutting edge graphic artists like Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers creator Gilbert Shelton , underground comix pioneer Jack Jackson Jaxon , and surrealist armadillo artist Jim Franklin.
The s was also an era of rock festivals , which played an important role in spreading the counterculture across the US. As the psychedelic revolution progressed, lyrics grew more complex, such as Jefferson Airplane 's " White Rabbit " . Long-playing albums enabled artists to make more in-depth statements than could be made in just a single song such as the Mothers of Invention 's satirical Freak Out! Free jazz is an approach to jazz music that was first developed in the s and s.
Although the music produced by free jazz composers varied widely, the common feature was a dissatisfaction with the limitations of bebop , hard bop , and modal jazz , which had developed in the s and s. Each in their own way, free jazz musicians attempted to alter, extend, or break down the conventions of jazz, often by discarding hitherto invariable features of jazz, such as fixed chord changes or tempos. While usually considered experimental and avant-garde, free jazz has also oppositely been conceived as an attempt to return jazz to its "primitive", often religious roots, and emphasis on collective improvisation.
Free jazz is strongly associated with the s innovations of Ornette Coleman and Cecil Taylor and the later works of saxophonist John Coltrane. Although today "free jazz" is the generally used term, many other terms were used to describe the loosely defined movement, including "avant-garde", "energy music" and "The New Thing".
Free improvisation or free music is improvised music without any rules beyond the logic or inclination of the musician s involved. The term can refer to both a technique employed by any musician in any genre and as a recognizable genre in its own right. Free improvisation , as a genre of music, developed in the U. Allmusic Guide states that "until around , the worlds of jazz and rock were nearly completely separate".
However, some make a distinction between the two terms. The Free Spirits have sometimes been cited as the earliest jazz-rock band. The recording " While the album gave Davis a gold record , the use of electric instruments and rock beats created a great deal of consternation amongst some more conservative jazz critics.
The counterculture was not only affected by cinema, but was also instrumental in the provision of era-relevant content and talent for the film industry. Bonnie and Clyde struck a chord with the youth as "the alienation of the young in the s was comparable to the director's image of the s. A sign of this was the visibility that the hippie subculture gained in various mainstream and underground media.
Hippie exploitation films are s exploitation films about the hippie counterculture  with stereotypical situations associated with the movement such as marijuana and LSD use, sex and wild psychedelic parties. The musical play Hair shocked stage audiences with full-frontal nudity. Dennis Hopper 's "Road Trip" adventure Easy Rider became accepted as one of the landmark films of the era.
In France the New Wave was a blanket term coined by critics for a group of French filmmakers of the late s and s, influenced by Italian Neorealism and classical Hollywood cinema. Although never a formally organized movement, the New Wave filmmakers were linked by their self-conscious rejection of classical cinematic form and their spirit of youthful iconoclasm and is an example of European art cinema. Many also engaged in their work with the social and political upheavals of the era, making their radical experiments with editing, visual style and narrative part of a general break with the conservative paradigm.
During the s, the term " art film " began to be much more widely used in the United States than in Europe. In the U. In the s "art film" became a euphemism in the U. By the s, the term was used to describe sexually explicit European films with artistic structure such as the Swedish film I Am Curious Yellow. Cultural historians—such as Theodore Roszak in his essay "From Satori to Silicon Valley" and John Markoff in his book What the Dormouse Said ,  have pointed out that many of the early pioneers of personal computing emerged from within the West Coast counterculture.
Many early computing and networking pioneers, after discovering LSD and roaming the campuses of UC Berkeley, Stanford, and MIT in the late s and early s, would emerge from this caste of social "misfits" to shape the modern world of technology, especially in Silicon Valley. Many hippies rejected mainstream organized religion in favor of a more personal spiritual experience, often drawing on indigenous and folk beliefs.
If they adhered to mainstream faiths, hippies were likely to embrace Buddhism , Daoism , Hinduism , Unitarian Universalism and the restorationist Christianity of the Jesus Movement. Some hippies embraced neo-paganism , especially Wicca. Wicca is a witchcraft religion which became more prominent beginning in , with the repeal of the Witchcraft Act of , after which Gerald Gardner and then others such as Charles Cardell and Cecil Williamson began publicising their own versions of the Craft. Gardner and others never used the term "Wicca" as a religious identifier, simply referring to the "witch cult", "witchcraft", and the "Old Religion".
However, Gardner did refer to witches as "the Wica". Following Gardner's death in , the Craft continued to grow unabated despite sensationalism and negative portrayals in British tabloids, with new traditions being propagated by figures like Robert Cochrane , Sybil Leek and most importantly Alex Sanders , whose Alexandrian Wicca , which was predominantly based upon Gardnerian Wicca, albeit with an emphasis placed on ceremonial magic , spread quickly and gained much media attention.
In his book, Hippies and American Values , Timothy Miller described the hippie ethos as essentially a "religious movement" whose goal was to transcend the limitations of mainstream religious institutions. Beginning in , Gaskin's "Monday Night Class" eventually outgrew the lecture hall, and attracted 1, hippie followers in an open discussion of spiritual values, drawing from Christian, Buddhist, and Hindu teachings.
In , Gaskin founded a Tennessee community called The Farm , and he still lists his religion as "Hippie. Timothy Leary was an American psychologist and writer, known for his advocacy of psychedelic drugs. On September 19, , Leary founded the League for Spiritual Discovery , a religion declaring LSD as its holy sacrament, in part as an unsuccessful attempt to maintain legal status for the use of LSD and other psychedelics for the religion's adherents based on a "freedom of religion" argument.
It was originally published under the title "Principia Discordia or How The West Was Lost" in a limited edition of five copies in The title, literally meaning "Discordant Principles", is in keeping with the tendency of Latin to prefer hypotactic grammatical arrangements. In English, one would expect the title to be "Principles of Discord. The lasting impact, including unintended consequences, creative output and general legacy of the counterculture era continue to be actively discussed, debated, despised and celebrated. Even the notions of when the counterculture subsumed the Beat Generation, when it gave way to the successor generation, and what happened in between are open for debate.
According to notable UK Underground and counterculture author Barry Miles, "It seemed to me that the Seventies was when most of the things that people attribute to the sixties really happened: this was the age of extremes, people took more drugs, had longer hair, weirder clothes, had more sex, protested more violently and encountered more opposition from the establishment. It was the era of sex and drugs and rock'n'roll, as Ian Dury said.
The countercultural explosion of the s really only involved a few thousand people in the UK and perhaps ten times that in the USA — largely because of opposition to the Vietnam war, whereas in the Seventies the ideas had spread out across the world. A Columbia University teaching unit on the counterculture era notes: "Although historians disagree over the influence of the counterculture on American politics and society, most describe the counterculture in similar terms. Even so, many liberal and leftist historians find constructive elements in it, while those on the right tend not to.
Screen legend John Wayne equated aspects of s social programs with the rise of the welfare state , " I know all about that. The average college kid idealistically wishes everybody could have ice cream and cake for every meal. But as he gets older and gives more thought to his and his fellow man's responsibilities, he finds that it can't work out that way—that some people just won't carry their load I believe in welfare—a welfare work program.
I don't think a fella should be able to sit on his backside and receive welfare. I'd like to know why well-educated idiots keep apologizing for lazy and complaining people who think the world owes them a living. I'd like to know why they make excuses for cowards who spit in the faces of the police and then run behind the judicial sob sisters. I can't understand these people who carry placards to save the life of some criminal, yet have no thought for the innocent victim.
Former liberal Democrat Ronald Reagan , who later became a conservative Governor of California and 40th President of the US, remarked about one group of protesters carrying signs, "The last bunch of pickets were carrying signs that said 'Make love, not war. The "generation gap" between the affluent young and their often poverty-scarred parents was a critical component of s culture.
In an interview with journalist Gloria Steinem during the US presidential campaign, soon-to-be First Lady Pat Nixon exposed the generational chasm in worldview between Steinem, 20 years her junior, and herself after Steinem probed Mrs. Nixon as to her youth, role models, and lifestyle.
A hardscrabble child of the Great Depression, Pat Nixon told Steinem, "I never had time to think about things like that, who I wanted to be, or who I admired, or to have ideas. I never had time to dream about being anyone else. I had to work. I haven't just sat back and thought of myself or my ideas or what I wanted to do I've kept working.
I don't have time to worry about who I admire or who I identify with. I never had it easy. I'm not at all like you In economic terms, it has been contended that the counterculture really only amounted to creating new marketing segments for the "hip" crowd. Even before the counterculture movement reached its peak of influence, the concept of the adoption of socially-responsible policies by establishment corporations was discussed by economist and Nobel laureate Milton Friedman : "Few trends could so thoroughly undermine the very foundation of our free society as the acceptance by corporate officials of a social responsibility other than to make as much money for their stockholders as possible.
This is a fundamentally subversive doctrine. If businessmen do have a social responsibility other than making maximum profits for stockholders, how are they to know what it is? Can self-selected private individuals decide what the social interest is? In the UK, commentator Peter Hitchens identified the counterculture as one of the contributing factors to what he saw as the malaise in British politics in In , author and former Free Speech activist Greil Marcus was quoted, "What happened four decades ago is history.
It's not just a blip in the history of trends. Whoever shows up at a march against war in Iraq, it always takes place with a memory of the efficacy and joy and gratification of similar protests that took place in years before It doesn't matter that there is no counterculture, because counterculture of the past gives people a sense that their own difference matters.
When asked about the prospects of the counterculture movement moving forward in the digital age, former Grateful Dead lyricist and self-styled "cyberlibertarian" John Perry Barlow said, "I started out as a teenage beatnik and then became a hippie and then became a cyberpunk. And now I'm still a member of the counterculture, but I don't know what to call that. And I'd been inclined to think that that was a good thing, because once the counterculture in America gets a name then the media can coopt it, and the advertising industry can turn it into a marketing foil.
But you know, right now I'm not sure that it is a good thing, because we don't have any flag to rally around.
- A Fairy Song.

Without a name there may be no coherent movement. During the era, conservative students objected to the counterculture and found ways to celebrate their conservative ideals by reading books like J. Edgar Hoover 's A Study of Communism , joining student organizations like the College Republicans , and organizing Greek events which reinforced gender norms.
Free Speech advocate and social anthropologist Jentri Anders observed that a number of freedoms were endorsed within a countercultural community in which she lived and studied: "freedom to explore one's potential, freedom to create one's Self, freedom of personal expression, freedom from scheduling, freedom from rigidly defined roles and hierarchical statuses It's sort of like the nuts in Ben and Jerry's ice cream -- it's so thoroughly mixed in, we sort of expect it.
The nice thing is that eccentricity is no longer so foreign. We've embraced diversity in a lot of ways in this country. I do think it's done us a tremendous service. The following people are well known for their involvement in s era counterculture. Some are key incidental or contextual figures, such as Beat Generation figures who also participated directly in the later counterculture era. The primary area s of each figure's notability are indicated, per these figures' Wikipedia pages.
This section is not intended be exhaustive, but rather a representative cross section of individuals active within the larger movement. Although many of the people listed are known for civil rights activism, some figures whose primary notability was within the realm of the Civil Rights Movement are listed elsewhere.
This section is not intended to create associations between any of the listed figures beyond what is documented elsewhere. He believes in the healing power of reliving through the compulsion to return to the traumatic experience. His heart went back to the savage old spirit of the place: the desire for old gods, old, lost passions, the passion of the cold-blooded, darting snakes that hissed and shot away from him, the mystery of blood-sacrifices, all the lost, intense sensations of the primeval people of the place, whose passions seethed in the air still, from those long days before the Romans came.
The seethe of a lost, dark passion in the air. The presence of unseen snakes. Barker proposes a striking analogy between the civilization of the Melanesians and that of Europe during the war. Both exemplify the idea that a civilization of any kind is based on sacrifice, be it Abraham and Isaac or an old Melanesian sacrificial ritual where a bastard son is killed by his adoptive father.
One particular episode, its content like that of a dream, cries out for interpretation:. One day Winifred heard the strangest scream from the flower-bed under the low window of the living room: ah, the strangest scream, like the very soul of the dark past crying aloud. She ran out, and saw a long brown snake on the flower-bed, and in its flat mouth the one hind leg of a frog was striving to escape, and screaming its strange, tiny, bellowing scream. She looked at the snake, and from its sullen flat head it looked at her, obstinately.
She gave a cry, and it released the frog and slid angrily away. I started to run and I was running through bushes. I was being chased by my father-in-law and two orderlies. Eventually they got me cornered and my father-in-law came towards me, waving a big stick. It had a snake wound round it. He was using it as a kind of flail, and the snake was hissing.
I backed away, but they got hold of me and tied me up. And soon afterwards there is Egbert himself, dying against a vision of the world that is all blood. It is as if, in both texts, the snake were the symbol of a lost power: for Lawrence, the power of the primitive knowledge to administer the natural order, for Barker, the power of modern medicine to heal the wounds of the war.
In this landscape, human behavior expresses the sense of imminent danger. Men, in these texts we are examining, struggle to defend their Ego. Both writers explore the extent to which male characters manage to resolve this contradiction between the world and self. The dominant view of civilization and its immanent ideology is that physical courage is essential to the sense of masculinity. The greater the failure, the more traumatic the impact seems to be, because Barker strips away the illusion concerning courage. Those male characters who stay alive after combat become haunted by the guilt of the survivor.
This extra-human test of masculinity produces a traumatic body-mind hysteria in the texts of both writers, for neither Lawrence nor Barker present the naturalistic detail of an agonized body for the sake of its own sensual suffering. Burns had. Now whenever he tried to eat, that taste and smell recurred. Second-Lieutenant Prior has gone mute after losing almost all his men in a bombing. The men suffer bodily dysfunctions, with or without a physical injury. Applying a broader interpretation, it can be observed that starting from the speech-related body functions—breathing, voice, stammer, suffocation—all of which point to the actual loss of communicative abilities in men—Barker goes on from there to a consideration of the conditions of the lower body spine and legs as a displaced manifestation of repressed sexuality.
On the basis of such an array of bodily stigmata we may suggest that there is no direct clue pointing to any straightforward psychoanalytic interpretation. Lawrence in fact vehemently denied such a hypothesis. Furthermore, women soon come into opposition to civilization and display their retarding and restraining influence—those very women who, in the beginning, laid the foundations of civilization by the claims of their love.
Women represent the interests of the family and of sexual life. The work of civilization has become increasingly the business of men, it confronts them with ever more difficult tasks and compels them to carry out instinctual sublimations of which women are little capable. Several cases, in which Barker evokes the figure of the mother, are marked by a sense of underlying hopelessness. Barker presents her as a typical malcontent of the civilization of which she is a member, for whose ideals her might-be son-in-law died. Winifred now had a new duty towards him: the duty of a wife towards a husband who is himself performing his duty towards the world.
She loved him still. She would always love him, as far as earthly love went. But it was duty she now lived by. When he came back to her in khaki, a soldier, she submitted to him as a wife. It was her duty. But to his passion she could never again fully submit. Something prevented her, for ever: even her own deepest choice. There is no healthy relationship which might be set against aggression. In Regeneration , Siegfried Sassoon, Robert Graves and Wilfred Owen are not only real people, they are important wartime poets who strive to address what are crude emotions, naked passions and very private sensations.

Those children who are lucky enough to be able to adapt to today's restrictive concepts of sexual normality will likely come through the developmental challenges of childhood relatively in tact. Unfortunately, the degree of difference between a particular society's currently accepted views of "normal" sexual behavior and the true reality of human sexual diversity determines how many children within that society must suffer some level of social condemnation.
And as the reality of perfectly natural and normal sexual desires conflicts with current sexual taboos, everyone must suffer. We all must bare the results of what we force upon our children in the name of morality, religion and family values. We all must bare some responsibility for the actions of those children and adults who are forced over the edge by irrational and inaccurate social values. We all must accept our role in allowing religious extremists and anti-sex crusaders to convince us to see the wondrous beauty of human sexuality in an evil, negative and antisocial light.
Young people should have as much right to experience their sexuality as any other group within society. They should have access to accurate information untainted by purist concepts of morality. They should be free to explore their sexuality without feeling guilty or having irrational ideas of abstinence forced upon them. They should be able to enjoy the full diversity of the desires that come from within without the fear of rejection or even imprisonment. And just as we all have the right to refuse someone's intimate advances if that is our choice, the same right must also be protected and ensured for our children.
But not in the extreme and not at the expense of denying whole generations of children the right to their sexuality. As incomprehensible as it may sound within today's climate of sexual hysteria, we should all fight to defend every child's right to say yes if that is their choice. Perhaps if we allowed an acceptable outlet for our children's sex drives, fewer would spend time fantasizing about killing themselves and their classmates. Neither my opinion or the opinion of others can ever really change the reality of human sexuality and its behavioral manifestations.
But a media bent on feeding the public's desire for sensationalism can greatly distort the way we perceive each other. Whatever happened to the media's sense of responsibility to provide an accurate and balanced view? Must we have the reality of our world and each other continually distorted by turning the rare and unusual into the perceived norm? Must we continually associate sex with assault and the rare individuals who are willing to force others to engage in sex against their will?
We all suffer when any society is moved to hysteria by exposure to an unbalanced portrayal of human sexuality and the irrational ramblings of a relatively small but highly vocal group of extremists. Especially when both the media and the extremists are clearly motivated by something other than what is in the best interests of ourselves and our children. Any rational discussion of sex and children must also consider the reality of aids. The correct time to begin educating children about the dangers of aids and other elements of potential harm related to sex is well before adolescence.
The widely held misconception that children might be induced into sexual activity through simply discussing sex is certainly not supported by the facts. Even if was, it is irrational to assume sex is harmful to children in the first place or that they are not already sexually active.
Actually, it seems the very people who oppose sex education are the first to advocate a need to educate young children about the alleged benefits of sexual abstinence. A bit of an illogical double standard. The real challenge today is for us to educate children without imposing our misconceptions of sex upon them. Considering our irrational obsession with human sexuality, we would all likely be a lot better off if adults looked more to children for definitions of normal sexual behavior then the other way around.
I suspect there is a lot children could teach us about the reality of normal sexual attractions, diversity and the true nature of human sexuality. There is a simple truth about sex that can only be seen when religious and other associated misconceptions are removed. The simple fact is, if it feels good it likely isn't harmful. Confucius once said we should ignore the rambling of a confused world. When he suggested this, he most certainly never envisioned the enormous power modern media would have in distorting public opinion and values. Any rational adult can conclude from both their own experiences as a child and experiences later in life that it is perfectly normal to be sexually active whether we're 4 or Not only is it normal, it is natural, healthy, wholesome, pure, enjoyable, good, right and in a single word, fun!
No matter how we may have come to view our sexuality, sex makes up a major portion of our psyche and is as much a part of our daily lives as any other need. We should ask ourselves if our irrational paranoia and media induced hysteria is turning our children into frigid sexual zombies, scared into total abstinence and rendered incapable of normal sexual relationships? Don't any of us want grandchildren? Or have we resigned ourselves to the science of artificial insemination? Now there's one that should work really well within today's concepts of "family values". Perhaps one day, when we move far enough away from outdated purist ideas, instead of trying to scare kids away from sex we will be able to encourage them to freely enjoy one of the most wondrous and enjoyable parts of being human Story categories: gurls on a youthfull nature Welcome to my world.
