A Not-So-Good Year

WSJ’s Daniel Henniger looks back at 1968, and argues that our current civic and political divide can be traced to the the tumultuous events of that year.

I turned 17 in 1968, and the turmoil I saw in the news every day left a deep impression on me. Even now, my deep conservative convictions remain galvanized by the outrageous behavior of those who sought to defame my country then — and are still carrying on that campaign today.

So, yeah, I suppose he’s right: today’s divisions really can be traced to the events of that year.
