A larger contect--FMS and Reagan and Hoover

Winning a suit brought against the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act, Berkeley alum Seth Rosenfeld came out with a killer book last year (2012), "Subversives: The FBI's War on Student Radicals, and Reagan's Rise to Power" showing that the FSM was up against opponents much more sinister than the school administration. Hoover and the FBI were simple evil int heir attempt to link imaginary Communist agitators with the FSM. And the marriage of Hoover and Reagan (who was an FBI narc in the early '50s), leveraging public opinion against the Berkeley students, is a sorry tale of civil rights abuse. As a Freshman at UCLA in 1964, I watched with great admiration the courage of the FSM--their impact lives on.
