RAW, the Mung Being interview

Thanks to help from Michael Johnson and Mike Gathers, I now know that the interview from which yesterday's quote was extracted is "23 Questions With Robert Anton Wilson," an interview from MungBeing Magazine that can be read here. It's a very good interview.

As I seem to be talking about politics lately, I wanted to reproduce one of my favorite quotes from RAW on the subject, taken from his book Right Where You Are Sitting Now.

To me, it doesn't matter if your scapegoats are the Jews, the homosexuals, the male sex, the Masons, the Jesuits, the Welfare Parasites, the Power Elite, the female sex, the vegetarians or the Communist Party. To the extent that you need scapegoats, you simply have not got your brain programmed to work as an efficient problem-solving machine.

Show me a movement that doesn't hate somebody and I will join it at once.
