Why the Movement Never got off the Ground
It was as if we were all in an airplane sitting on the
runway and everyone on board was getting high waiting for
the airplane to take off. We were high on the Summer of
Love, the end of the war, the hope of a better world. The
revolution and the birth of our consciences filled our hearts

see was the smoke that billowed forth from our water pipes.
We thought we were flying high, man; we thought we had taken
off, but as the smoke cleared and we looked out the window,

life of love and pease was our goal.
Have you ever stopped to consider your life: where
you’ve been and where you’re going, and what
you have really accomplished in your days on the earth?
It seems like so many live and die without considering the
consequential effect of their life. Some have reached the
conclusion that it doesn’t really matter...
Professor Zygote had finally cracked the automation
equation, paving the way for the creation of the ulti-mate
machine, a machine capable of wip-ing out all forms of crime
overnight -without the help of guards, policemen, detectives,
lawyers, judges, juries, jailers, executioners, parole officers,
