woodstock.68.0: WELL Woodstock Demo #2 (wstock2)  Sun 14 Aug 94 07:49

 If all these people, or maybe just a small number of them (say 3 percent)
 had any concept of injustice, things could've gotten quite revolutionary
 here at Woodstock '94.
 Instead we few who foster any values closely resembling those of our
 concertgoing predecessors walk through this zone of Frat boys and MTV heads
 with our heads held low.
 The sick part is that tha rest of you fuckers on-line are just as apathetic
 and tethered by fear of jail, so that even if we did accomplish some sort of
 progress toward change, as soon as this sinfest was finished, the ball wouls
 fall back in the hands of the ones who have sucessfully managed to-in the
 space of only 25 years-turn hippies and their children into slaves to the
 only establishment on Earth capable of such black magic. That's right!!!
 America owns the rights to the concept of "hippie" and the @#$%@%%*
 motherfuckers made quite a profit on your souls.
           Or just pull the fucking trigger, because you have nothing that
 even resembles a life, just money for the rich to trade for food that
 belongs to a God they have the marketing rights to.

 A few gut reactions...
 1.  The creation of community is itself a radical political act.  In
 the present climate, just being *civil* is an act of rebellion. Being
 *kind* is almost sufficient evidence of treasonable .  Contexts like
 festivals, where people are *forced* to rely on each other more than
 they are ordinarily, have the potential of giving people a taste of
 what real community could be like.  (This is why people get so
 passionalte about what happened at the original concert, and why
 so many people are in Bethel right now.)
 2.  There's a lot going on beneath the radar.  You may think that
 no one's working on the reevolution any more, but it ain't so.
 (I'm going to let my typo in the previous sentence stand.)
 This very weekend, for example, The Greens/Green Part y USA
 Gathering is happening in Boise.
 3.  John Lydon said, "Anger is an energy..."  The system would
 prefer that you be angry and outraged--that puts you off-
 center, and makes you easier to manipulate.  Find ways to put that
 energy to real use, and you'll become as dangerous to the system
 as you want to be.

 If everybody [at this concert] [reading this magazine] [seeing this
 pamphlet] [other] would [write congress] [plant a tree] [send $5] [give up
 red meat] [other] just [once] [for a day] [once a day] [for the duration]
 [other] we could [end world hunger] [create world peace] [save the
 environment] [end racism] [other].

 Jail seriously reduces one's ability to accomplish anything.

woodstock.68.8: jt/AL (wstock4)  Sun 14 Aug 94 13:13

 I agree. So does tv.
 We had a good thing a couple of times here.
 Green Day it was.  Arrested Development was smokin.
 Porn for pyros should be the next x high.

 The key to dealing with all that negativity is not not succumb to it...

woodstock.68.10: gimme an E! (kwinb)  Sun 14 Aug 94 14:07
