The Greening of America is a 1970 book by Charles A. Reich. It is a paean to the counterculture of the 1960s and its values. Excerpts first appeared as an essay in the September 26, 1970 issue of The New Yorker. The book was originally published by Random House.
Richard Nixon was sworn in as president in January 1970 but the country had never fully recovered from the loss of JFK, RFK and Martin Luther King, Jr ~ we were in a state of moral apathy and perfect fodder for Nixon and Kissinger to manipulate our collective fears by bombing Cambodia and then Nixon increased domestic spying.

I don’t grudge Bernie for stepping out. I don’t know what happened behind the scenes, but he raised political consciousness in this country to an unprecedented level and started a political revolution I never thought I’d see here. Those who paid attention just witnessed a corporate coup in the democratic primary. The oligarchy, operating through the DNC and corporate media, and colluding with the Clinton campaign, stole an election, defrauded the American people of their rightful democratic process, and is intent on installing Hillary, their corrupt hopeful successor to their current servant Barak Obama. (I voted for him the first time and learned a new level of discernment.)
