Thoughts? Not perfect, perhaps but I personally think videos like these might well be very powerful tools of propaganda.

George was the man. Very subversive, his criticisms very much directed at the ruling class. He was even a key person in the movement for "free speech" in the US during the late 50's and 60's.

The big tragic joke in it all is that people just laughed at his act. I wonder how many people were affected by it more deeply? I guess will never know, but Leo is right. It is a powerful tool nonetheless... Maybe now that he is dead people will sorta take him in a different way.

His take on the elections is very good haha. No one could put it in a better way. Rip George
