The Chicken or the Egg?

I just finished reading Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein.  It wasn’t like any of his other books. The first half was engaging with great characters and situations. But the second half took a very unexpected turn, proving that truth is stranger than fiction. (Pun!) Published in 1961, the book had a heavy dose of what has become known as the 60’s love and peace movement. That lead me to wonder if this book was a result of the 60’s reform ethos (the chicken) or was this popular book one of the factors that promoted that era’s social changes (egg)?
