It's safe to say that the Beatles had a pretty good time in the Sixties. They were certainly at the forefront of the hippie movement, a central aspect of which was the Free Love ideology.
However, in Lennon's 1970 song Working Class Hero, he sings:
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still f***ing peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
Why would he condemn sex as a mind-control tactic? Was he disillusioned with pop culture at the time of writing?
Any ideas appreciated!
