Resist Much, Obey Little 

Here's the link to Robert Anton Wilson's "Guns & Dope Party" homepage.
We advocate
[1] guns for those who want them, no guns
forced on those who don't want them (pacfists, Quakers etc.)
[2] drugs for those who want them,
no drugs forced on those who don't want them (Christian Scientists etc.)
[3] an end to Tsarism and a return to constitutional democracy
[4] equal rights for ostriches.


Question: Terrence McKenna saw wild stuff happening between now and December 21, 2012 C.E. How do you think Californians can best prepare themselves to live long and prosper in the crazy days ahead?

RAW Answer: They should all buy [b,u,y, BUY, not rent] the video or DVD of SOUTHERN STAR, a comedy starring Orson Welles as a Gay banditto and Olga, an ostrich, as a diamond thief. At certain points, if you've taken your pain medicine for the day, Olga speaks directly to the audience -- to YOU -- and her words always contain both pragmatic and mystic wisdom.

For instance, once I asked her how to contribute most to the coming unity of all critterkind, instillling respect for "all life however small" as it says in the Upanishads, and she suggested appointing ostriches as 1/3 of the legislature. Of course, some left-wing aardvarks have complained about this [they call it "bipedal chauvinism"] but I trust Olga.

Most humans haven't gotten to the level of realizing the personhood of other races yet, you know. Bipedalism represents a great leap forward toward universal critterkind, and you have to take these things one step at a time.The six-legged majority still inspire fear and loathing in backward societies.

If Olga doesn't talk to you, you need more pain medicine, and frankly I don't understand how you've survived three years of George W Bush without it. Maybe you should try the Bible or the Koran or Chinese fortune cookies.
