The hippie culture, which was popularized in San Francisco in the mid-1960s, had an enormous influence on media, food, religion, and people’s attitude towards politics. Because of the hippie movement, war was perceived as unjustified violence and peace was a sustained virtue. Intercom manufacturers did not even think to provide the military with voice communication technologies because supporting war was taboo.
However, as mindsets began to change in the mid-1980s, people began to think that there was a time and place for war and peace. From Clear-Com’s perspective, we realized that if the United States were to end up in a war, we want our defense to have the best intercom equipment possible so that they can communicate clearly. We began to supply the American military with our voice communication systems and have been doing so ever since.
