100 Words -- Playing A Mind Game

A subplot in a book I’m reading involves aging Nazis dreaming of restoring the Third Reich. I wondered, as a Vietnam vet, what would I plot to bring back? The fifties? That wouldn’t be so bad, but I’m thinking the sixties’ counterculture. It was more than sex, drugs, and rock’n’roll. We were going to change the world. We took on the establishment, took it to the streets, and ended up at dysfunction junction. Wait, that wasn’t the plan. Our actions bred reaction. The country marched right, left … right! So what would be different this time around? Love is the answer.
