ISBN: noisbn

No date, 1968. Single sheet, typed, single side only. A letter to the underground paper, RAT Subterranean News, addressing Up With People, Sing Out and the Moral Re-Armament (MRA). The author, Leigh, was a member of the group, discharged for, in her words, "being too sexy." Leigh castigates the group and society in general, as being morally bankrupt and seeking to produced brainwashed, homogenized people. The letter begins, "Dear Rat, Somewhere, this very night, an innocent, pure American Teeny-Bop of the Future is being indoctrinated into the emotional bureaucracy of Moral Re-Armament," and continues "A little over a year ago I was in among that fresh, scrubbed-faced crowd of dumb 'jocks' who are not getting any and trite society belles who pray nightly that they never will." A succinct and well-written perspective on the clash of cultures in the late 1960s. GOOD condition. Heavy browning and offsetting to the paper, with general wrinkling, minor soiling and staining. Minor wear along the extremities.
