make love not war gold tshirt
make love not war gold tshirt
Make love not war was a phrase/slogan commonly associated with the American counterculture of the 1960s. It was used primarily by those who were opposed to the Vietnam War. The slogan was featured in John Lennon's 1973 song Mind Games. The slogan also the inspiration for a book by David Allyn: Make Love, Not War: The Sexual Revolution: An Unfettered History. ********************** The slogan is parodied many times in popular culture, including in the South Park episode Make Love, Not Warcraft (Also parodying World of Warcraft) and the videogame Destroy all Humans 2! Make war not love. ************** On the DEC PDP-10, typing the command "make love" would result in the response "not war?". This action was copied on some older versions of UNIX. *****************Though it also developed in the United Kingdom, the counterculture of the 1960s began in the United States as a reaction against the conservative social norms of the 1950s, the political conservatism (and social repression) of the Cold War period, and the US government's extensive military intervention in Vietnam. As the 1960s progressed, widespread tensions developed in American society that tended to flow along generational lines regarding the war in Vietnam, race relations, sexual mores, women's rights, traditional modes of authority, experimentation with psychedelic drugs and a predominantly materialist interpretation of the American dream. ************************ New cultural forms emerged, including the pop music of English band the Beatles, which rapidly evolved to shape and reflect the youth culture's emphasis on change and experimentation. This was accelerated after 1964, when the Beatles were introduced to cannabis in a New York hotel room by Bob Dylan, another youth culture icon. Social anthropologist Jentri Anders, based in California, has observed that a number of freedoms were endorsed within a countercultural community which she lived in 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…" Additionally, Anders believed these people wished to modify childrens' education so that it didn't discourage "aesthetic sense, love of nature, passion for music, desire for reflection, or strongly marked independence…" ************Opposition to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War began slowly and in small numbers in 1964 on various campuses in the United States. This happened during a time of unprecedented student activism reinforced in numbers by the demographically significant baby boomers, but grew to include a wide and varied cross-section of Americans from all walks of life. The growing opposition to the Vietnam War was also partly attributed to greater access to uncensored information compared with previous wars and extensive television media coverage of what, ultimately, became America's longest combat war. Likewise, a system of conscription that provided exemptions and deferments more easily claimed by middle and upper class registrants - and thus inducted disproportionate numbers of poor, working-class, and minority registrants - drove much of the protest. By the end of 1967, as the war ground on with no end in sight, public opinion polls showed a majority of Americans opposed the war.*************** Breasts Not Bombs is a grassroots political movement based in Mendocino County, California. The group focuses on the intersection between topfree equality and social justice through non-violent public protests involving street theatre and toplessness in order to bring attention to what they term the "immoral injustices of war, its torturous prisons and obscene profits". Activist and performance artist Sherry Glaser currently runs the group.**************
