I go to Face Book to get depressed. Works every time.
Reading Chris Hedges & watching Chris Hedges you would think that Communism actually worked. I appreciate what he has to say, and what he had done, but get to comparing poets to writers, and writer directors to editor directors.
Poets make more difference than all the other sorts of writer. Poems live longer. People in politics fear poets more than other writers and often kill them first. Israel killed the poets of the Palestinians first, for instance.
Howl by Allen Ginsberg did more to change the society & culture than anybody else. He was good to his friends and got them published. They often like Hunke and Burroughs were trying to be good Yeggs, and get with the “hop” life of dreams.
Bob Dylan could have been president of Woodstock Nation he about was.
The Dreams of Woodstock Nation were everybody got along and had a good time. It was hedonistic. A lot of them were and are simply silly.
Allen Ginsberg read and read, performing his poem & his poems. It isn’t right to try and make everybody straight and white. It isn’t right to discriminate.
William James could talk and talk and you look for the little isolated paragraphs he said in his lectures.
