These are examples of passivity due to being overwhelmed by the system.  There are latent anti-drug, anti-gun, pro-conformity messages, but in the end, these are  Soul-Battered people who make for cathartic viewing.  Reality TV that raises your awareness instead of dulling your senses.

TOM

THE OFFICIAL LINE: Tom, a 26-year-old who has dropped out and has dropped everything, LSD, mescaline, psilocybin and some things familiar only to obscure chemists in Berkeley.
 
THE TRUTH: The right medications for Tom would be the Bill of Rights, The Constitution, Howard Zinn's history lesson, Noam Chomsky's lecture on foreign policy, and a big ol' gun, but instead, Tom escapes through the pill, like so many Americans, whether it be by prescription or by street corner.
