Angry political history

im reading this book copywritten in 1966 about new york's east village, titled The New Bohemia by john gruen.

there is a editorial quote from an underground east village publication called Fuck You / A Magazine Of The Arts by Ed Sanders:

Quote:
Time is NOW for a TOTAL ASSAULT ON THE MARIJUANA LAWS! it is CLEAR to us that the cockroach theory of grass smoking has to be abandoned. INTO THE OPEN! ALL THOSE WHO SUCK UP THE BENEVOLENT NARCOTIC CANNABIS, TEENSHUN!! FORWARD, WITH MIND DIALS POINTED! ASSAULT! we have the facts! Cannabis is a non-addictive gentle peace drug! The Marijuana legislations were pushed through in the 1930's by the agents and goonsquads of the jansenisto-manichaean fuck-haters' Conspiricy. Certainly, after 30 years of the blight, it is time to rise up for a bleep blop bleep assault on the social screen....But we can't wait forever for you grass cadets pull the takeover: grass-freak senators, labor leaders, presidents, ect! The Goon Squads are few and we are many. We must spray our message into the million lobed American brain IMMIDEATLY!...
Hemp is the WAY! We demand the "Holy Weed Marijuana" under our own judgement. When a law is useless when a law is degrading when it prohibits the right to a gentle healthful pleasure, DISOBEY!
Certainly, after 60 years of the blight, it is time to rise up for a bleep blop bleep assault on the social screen....But we can't wait forever for you grass cadets pull the takeover...

You beat me to it.

I remember reading a story about the Fugs from the NY Times entertainment section sometime this summer. Never would have learned about them otherwise.

I should hear some of their music.

he's described in the book as "continually hounded by the police"

its also reported that some of his material "may, indeed, have been written while under the influence of hallucinatory drugs"

I'm reading "Tales of Beatnik Glory" by him right now, good shit. Cool lil stories pretty much all involving drugs (mainly pot n speed), art, poetry, and fucking with society.

The New Bohemians

sounds like a book I wanna read.

Quote:

I wonder if this 'Cockroach theory' is referring to the1898 Spanish-American war, where Hearst, the goon, took over
800,000 acres prime timberland from Pancho Villa's
weed smoking army_So Hearst turned up the racial mud slinging. Villafying latinos in his news? SMEARpapers for 3 or 4 decades.

The song "La Cucaracha" tells the story of one of Villa's men looking for his stash of " marijuana por fumar!" ( to smoke!)

i think the cockroach theory refers to the philosophy that as long as you dont get caught, youre fine. just keep to the shadows and dark corners, and if a narco-terror-goon squad agent should flip on the kitchen light in the middle of the night, scurry like hell to whatever hidey hole you can!

"just dont get caught, just dont get caught" this is what cockroackes tell eachother, and potsmokers have been saying the same thing all these years.

but isnt it still true today that we are many and they are few?
our numbers have always risen faster than theirs and despite their best efforts to stamp us out there are still more and more of us all the time.

it just struck me, ya kno... "We must spray our message into the million lobed American brain IMMIDEATLY!" he said in 1966,
and what has happened since then?
