Barbara Marx Hubbard has died

Barbara Marx Hubbard speaks as a vice presidential candidate at the 1984 Democratic National Convention (just over 10 minutes).

Futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard, 89, has died. She and Robert Anton Wilson were mutual admirers. About RAW, she said, "“Robert Anton Wilson is one of the leading thinkers of the modern age.” She appears as a character in Schroedinger's Cat.

If you take a few minutes to watch her speech before the 1984 Democratic National Convention, above, you can hear her mention the eye in the pyramid on the dollar bill as she calls for a peaceful foreign policy and a commitment to space exploration.

The New York Times published an obit.

Eve Hubbard was the greatest President Unistat ever had. I've carried a yen for her administration since the first time I read The Trick Top Hat. Hopefully we can figure out a way to get a leader like that in power in this Universe.
