"Question authority" is a popular slogan often used on bumper stickers, t-shirts and as graffiti, which first appeared in the late 1970s. It is intended to encourage people to avoid fallacious appeals to authority. The term symbolized the negative attitude towards government which inhabited the minds of baby boomer Americans in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, the 1970's oil shock and most notably the Watergate Scandal.
