This chapter highlights the role of the FSM in securing the right to conduct political activity on campus that is now so commonplace today and suggests that the FSM seems like a seriocomic accident that played out in a string of administrative blunders abetted by the hubris of university president Clark Kerr. It also comments on the dedication of an FSM Café near the Moffitt Library of the University of California, Berkeley.
