Commenting on the questions asked of student leaders (Student Activism ALR No. 4, 1968) I claim that the main causes are generally, the failure of modern industrial, bureaucratically organised societies to meet the individual human needs; particularly, for Australia, (1) the Vietnam horror; (2) desire of individuals and minority groups to pa rticipate meaningfully in government process, and feelings of frustration resulting from the capitalist establishment’s denial of their rights; (3) increasing evidence of the capitalist power elite's suppression of humanistic values.
