I got it to work. By the way it kind of reminded me for some reason of a movie that was done in the late 60's or early 70's called Shape of Things to Come. It was about a man who ran for president that preached change and aimed his message at the younger people. Don't know if it is available anywhere.

I did some checking. I was wrong. the name of the movie was Wild in the Streets. You can read a little about it and listen to the music theme from it titled, Nothing can change the shape of things to come. The story line is a little scary in light of the recent election.

WILD IN THE STREETS
Very familiar with that film, made in 1968. THat's where the (in)famous line "Never trust anyone over 30!" came from. "Seniors" were given LSD Kool-aid to keep them under control, and locked in concentration camps - hardly "retirement."

When I was in college many years ago I enrolled in a Political Science class where we read and discussed dystopic novels.

It would be very nice if we could interest young people in works of this type. I could start the list with:
Darkness at Noon
1984
Fahrenheit 451
Brave New World
A Clockwork Orange

I don't think we can even get today's youth to watch the film versions of these as they require an attention span longer than a 30 second sound bite.

BTW "Wild In The Streets" is a dystopia that ends with a twist as even younger children are plotting the demise of the 'youngsters' who have taken control.

Yep, I remember seeing it at the drive in. I actually had a copy at one time of the song. Don't know what ever happened to it.
