That was 1967, and only a few months of '67 at that. I guess you can throw in however many days Woodstock lasted in 1969.

1968, you've got the MLK and RFK assassinations, riots across the USA, violent revolutions or near-revolutions in France and Mexico, the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, disturbances everywhere, and the White Album.

Clark and Gligoric were just being mollycoddles.
