The Anti War Movement had profound effects on America. First of all, it had a massive impact on the way people looked at the country's intervention in the Vietnam War.

The counter culture rejected traditional American values, looking for a more liberal country, while conservative Americans continued to cling to the traditional values of earlier decades.
