I'm not sure I follow your first attempt at deconstruction.

I am interested in the linkage you're making between the war and the
"counterculture".  Although there seem to be some significant
connections, I'm pretty certain that the slide toward this studied
irresponsibility popularized as "freedom" started prior to the Vietnam

I suppose there have always been people like this.  In the decade
following WWII, I think they were called "beatniks".  These folks had a
hold on San Francisco long before Vietnam started.

I was just thinking that it didn't really get a good strong hold though until Vietnam...basically the kids were faced with the choice to "serve and die" or "revolt and live." And forced with a choice like that a lot of kids, very understandably, chose to revolt. It was the only way to keep your integrity and your life intact.
