What did Barry Mcguire mean with his song eve of destruction?

Barry McGuire was worried about nuclear war, as were many people in the 60s. He also was worried about Vietnam and did not understand why kids were being sent over there to die-- "you don't believe in war, but what's that gun you're toting?" It also commented on racism in places like Selma, Alabama, and the hypocrisy of people who claimed to care about others, yet were racist-- the line about how people would "Hate your next door neighbor, but don't forget to say grace." If you want to understand the fears and frustrations of the 60s, they are expressed in that song, which touches upon the Cold War, Vietnam, the nuclear arms race, and the civil rights movement. It was actually a surprise hit, because although top-40 didn't usually play protest music, this song resonated with a lot of young people and it became one of the early anthems of that era.
