Sure You Can Push Your Opinion Down Our Throats

Why not. Why shouldn't we believe what the 1% of selfishly wealthy Americans are telling us is wrong with this country. I mean, god for bid if the government wants to expose their overly self righteous greed, for the good of the people. We should protect their poor souls. I am sure deep down inside they do not really mean it, right?
Social justice, now that is just wrong! Helping other people who have less than they do. What the hell, why would we do that?
And come on killing "innocent" people in Iraq, whats the big deal, they are probably all terrorists, too!
Women's rights, jeeze, a woman shouldn't have the right to control her own body. Come on people, do not be ignorant! Even if the baby is born to a crack whore mother, who will wheel it around in a grocery cart, and just leaves it alone for a little bit so she can go have sex with a random guy and get enough dog food to feed her baby...but I am sure he will thank us later!
Religion should get in the way of politics! It is logical reasoning.
You can go ahead and think about this! But do not think about it for too long, who might actually develop your own opinions!

On Burroughs' Work

The method must be purest meat
and not symbolic dressing,
actual visions & actual prisons
as seen then and now.

Prisons and visions presented
with rare descriptions
corresponding exactly to those
of Alcatraz and Rose.

A naked lunch is natural to us,
we eat reality sandwiches.
But allegories are so much lettuce.
Don't hide the madness.

-San Jose, 1954
