From the Paper:

"It cannot go without saying that the post modernist is also defined by politics, where left wing liberalism and right wing conservatism come face to face in an almost hostile way (Rosenau, Pauline Marie, 1992, p. 138). The contentiousness peaked during the 1960s, during the counter culture revolution when young people expressed their aversion to the social order by rejecting it, resisting, and even defying it. Musicians, painters, sculptors, photographers, and filmmakers were vocal and outspoken, influencing the decisions of political leaders with demands of a world-wide peace. The rejection of the establishment was in many ways a stark contradiction to the life style of the artists."
