Video: Oregon, 1970, Vortex 1
« on: October 11, 2011, 01:51:39 am »
Program: Oregon Experience
 Episode: Vortex I
 
In the summer of 1970, some tens of thousands of people converged in
 rural Clackamas County for an event called Vortex I. This festival
 celebrated freedom - freedom from violence, from drug laws and from
 clothes. It also served as an elaborate ploy to lure young people away
 from Portland. Vortex I is the only state-sponsored rock festival in
 U.S. history.

And for several hot summer days, Vortex 1 created a sort of clothing optional alternate reality, underwritten by the Republican Governor. 10s of thousands converged. Traditional law enforcement had been suspended
Top-free Equality. Its a right, not a privilege!

Cool video, Danee.  I don't know how you find these things, but I am glad you do.

Can anyone else not see it?

Perhaps it's a Canada thing?

It took a minute to load but I was able to view the video. It is amazing that this was able to happen and supported rather than shut down.

This festival celebrated freedom - freedom from violence, from drug laws and from clothes.



Does no one else get the irony in "freedom" having to be celebrated by being herded off into a remote location and segregated from society in general?  May we all be saved from such freedom.

and while bare-breasted "Marianne" leads the revolutionaries  . . .



American liberty is draped from neck to foot . . .



sort of like wearing a burka

I feel like the attempt at irony was a failure, considering "Liberty Enlightening the World" was designed and created in France, and that America itself used to be very c/o.  Read Tom Sawyer, there's a scene where Tom, Huck, and Joe run naked and skinny dip :p
