88. Yep, part of an aggressive CON infrastructure prescribed in the Powell Memo.

http://reclaimdemocracy.org/powell_memo_lewis/

Commissioned in the very early 1970s by the US Chamber of Commerce, which worried about losing the narrative after the revolutions social changes of the 60s. They didn’t like all this anti-war/uppity women/civil rights/social justice/outspoken students stuff that erupted all over the country during that amazing and uproarious decade. They found it threatening to their view of what was “right” (and good for business). Lewis Powell wrote it and it became a blueprint for a right-and-far-right takeover of the country and culture. And Lewis Powell became a SCOTUS Associate Justice, nominates by Nixon.
