Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Pfff. I know a lot of people who were witnesses of May '68, and their reactions are extremely varied. Some - of an authoritarian mindset, whether they knew it or not before those events - reacted as you suggest. Others drew inspiration from it for different forms of revolt, collective or (often) individualist.

A number of Parisians who explained their experiences of '68 to me were fairly indifferent. It wasn't such a big deal, they thought. You just worked your way round it while it was happening.

"Chaos" is a big and overworked word, imho.
