I’m digging SOMETHING YOU DID. Here’s a little taste of Gene Biddle, going toe-to-toe with Alison Moulton, the Kathy Boudin surrogate incarcerated for the death of a police officer while staging an anti-Vietnam war action:
I still have my ideals. You want to pretend the past never existed.
I don’t deny the past. I just consign it to its proper developmental place, like acne.
Is there anything you don’t mock?
The “sixties” was a mockery of political discourse.
Anything that’s not a sound bite?
We told ourselves we were revolutionaries. We didn’t have a clue.
We were baby boomer brats who despised authority. Nothing changed.
We were miserable for nothing.
Okay, folks. Discuss.
