Vietnam took place during a time in American history when the political landscape was already stretched to a breaking point, with the emergence of
feminism, civil rights, racial conflict, the sexual revolution, etc. Things are far different today, but I still wonder if America is headed toward
some sort of irreparable ideological scism. It's already beginning to show in our voting - the difference between "red" states and "blue" states
is alarming, and may be indicative of a serious conflict down the road in say, the next ten or twenty years.
