Just recently came across this and wanted to share on here in case anybody hasn’t seen it. It’s kind’ve a long interview split in two parts:
I absolutely love this bit from the latter part of the interview(dealing with the legality of psychedelic drugs):
People can’t be bothered to exercise their democratic rights. They can’t be bothered to explore chemical states of mind on their own. Eventually, they probably won’t even bother to have sex; it’ll just come over the tube for them. There’s an incredible abdication of individual responsibility and authenticity. That troubles me. Why should people trust the American government on the subject of psychedelic drugs? Has it ever been right about anything? I mean, any examples will be cheerfully entertained. Have they ever gotten it right? So suddenly they have the answers on something as subtle as psychedelic drugs? They got birth control wrong. They got abortion wrong. They got race rights wrong, women’s rights wrong, gay rights wrong. Lousy foreign policy. Stupid space program. Miserable tax setup. Lousy healthcare program… and you want to hear their opinion on psychedelic drugs?
