In the concluding episode of this series we are given a glimpse of the events in Haight Ashbury, leading to the big concert at Woodstock. With the advent of Timothy Leary and his ilk, drugs, particularly the psychedelics, become the candy off a new generation. There is an element of sadness here in that these kids, who left society, eventually fell to earth. It was probably because without property, food, and support, eventually the wheels fall off. They had had enough of the establishment and its wars. They began to see how minorities were treated and and how those over thirty got to make the rules. This was the era of the protest singer and the impact of the counterculture. What would the Seventies bring to change all this? Watch the next series.
