The Free Speech Movement

University of California Press

This chapter describes some personal aspects of Mario Savio that had a direct impact on his role in the Free Speech Movement (FSM). It suggests that 1964 was one of those historical moments for both Savio and the FSM in which the personal and public came together to address a profound personal and social-political problem: the abuse of power and the consequent disappointment and loss of faith in leaders. It highlights Savio's respect for and attention to other based on philosophical and religious principles and his own inner drives, and his concern for and projection of disappointment as a major issue in his life and one to be carefully guarded against.

Keywords:   Mario Savio, FSM, social-political problem, philosophical principles, religious principles, disappointment
