'Liberals' have had problems with social authority since 1968. The disruptions at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago of that year were met with Democratic authority channeled through Mayor Richard Daly Sr. and THAT sort of exercise of authority was discredited. But, for a large segment of the Democratic Leadership, the sorts who engaged in the protests in Chicago were just too rude and rough. They lumped the 'Hippies' in with the Hoffa union members who supported Nixon, didn't bother to notice their own lack of discrimination between sheep and goats, and, with the Neo-Liberal turn, dismissed them all. It has remained a problem ever since.
