During the first week of January 1971 Father Robert F. Drinan moved into another new world, one that called for him to assume a new role and a new identity. And the decade of American history into which he was carried had begun to accumulate its own unforeseen peculiarities. Dubbed in 1976 by author Tom Wolfe “The Me Decade,” the 1970s had a new ethos that grew in some ways out of an idealistic, positive, revolutionary movement—the morally based protest against the Vietnam War— that had propelled Drinan into office. But now it was beginning to shatter.
