His anti Vietnam War stance was pretty controversial.

It is basic human nature look back at things you were fearful of in the past and think it is not so bad compared to now. Some progressive post Trump and look back at the Bush Administration like that. The Black Panthers now in some conservative circles are now seen as 2nd amendment rights pioneers. To put it mildly not then.

I'm not condemning his more radical positions, I'm saying his public image has been watered down and the controversies have been polished away to the point that many public figures will express positive sentiments while not knowing that he was disruptive and controversial.

Moderates always try to insist that those who want change be more polite, quieter/less outspoken, more patient, less ambitious, less radical, less threatening to those for whom the system works just fine despite the fact that's literally never been an option and progress only seems to occur as a result of disruption and civil disobedience by people directly invested in the outcome.

Point:

GO TO SCHOOL, GET A JOB, GO TO WORK,
GET MARRIED, HAVE SOME KIDS,
PAY YOUR TAXES, PAY YOUR BILLS,
WATCH TV, LISTEN TO THE NEWS,
OBEY THE LAW.
NOW REPEAT AFTER ME:
I AM FREE.


Counterpoint:

REMAIN IGNORANT, REMAIN UNEMPLOYED, DO NO WORK,
REMAIN SINGLE, REMAIN CHILDLESS,
PAY NO TAXES, PAY NO BILLS,
STEAL TVS, LISTEN TO STREET TALK,
FLOUT THE LAW.
NOW REPEAT AFTER ME:
I AM SOMEBODY.
