Poet Allen Ginsberg became an unofficial Yippie guru, a role he did not always enjoy. He sat among a crowd of protesters in Lincoln Park, chanting 棄__棄__棄__棄__棄__棄__棄__棄___棄__綬「m棄__棄__棄__棄__棄__棄__棄___棄__ to calm the nerves. The Yippies sought to radicalize young adherents of the counter culture, hoping to recruit them for more militant action.
