the free speech movement

…a phase of youth revolt heard round the world…a fight about freedom of speech…much more than that…”the greatest mass arrest on a civil liberties issue in the history of the united states.” 800 demonstrators, whose policies were carried out through peaceful protests and disciplined non-violence, a powerful moral drive born out of determination to restore forsaken standards of human conduct to a cynical society… “arrested and hauled to various jails.”

singing this song to the tune of beethoven’s 9th symphony:

from the tip of san diego to the top of berkeley’s hills

we have built a mighty army to impart our social skills

social engineering triumph, managers of every kind

let us all with drills and homework manufacture human minds

keep the students safe for knowledge, keep them loyal keep them clean

that is why we have a college, hail to IBM machine
