[Instrumental]

Spiro Agnew:

"Sometimes it appears that we're reaching a period when our senses and our minds will no longer respond to moderate stimulation. We seem to be aproaching an age of the gross, persuasion through speeches and books is too often discarded for disruptive demonstrations aimed at bludgeoning the unconvinced into action. The young...overwhelm themselves with drugs and artificial stimulants. Subtlety is lost, and fine distinctions based on acute reasoning are carelessly ignored in a headlong jump to a predetermined conclusion. Life is visceral rather than intellectual. And the most visceral practitioners of life are those who characterize themselves as intellectuals"

"Sometimes it appears that we're reaching a period when our senses and our minds will no longer respond to moderate stimulation. We seem to be aproaching an age of the gross, persuasion through speeches and books is too often discarded for disruptive demonstrations aimed at bludgeoning the unconvinced into action.
