1963-1973:The Decade of Disillusionment
The purpose of this project is to examine the political and social events that were the catalysts for the disillusionment and subsequent death of idealism among many Americans during the 1960s and 1970s. We will discuss the repercussions of the three broader topics: disillusionment about the invulnerability of leadership, disillusionment with drugs through the values of the counterculture, and disillusionment with the government.
