I love the blunt instruction with the opening and closing images. From the discord of overstimulated youth to a quiet beach stroll, by Nixon's faithful hand. Take his hand, and walk into the light.
But, sometimes, I want to run screaming with righteous anger into the darkness with a chainsaw.

Reminds me of nothing so much as The Parallax View.

Quite possible you are right -- that is, that the director of that film had this (or something like it) in mind....
