"Claims here including that women commonly can have several hundred orgasms during sex on L._S._D.. So that doesn't seem to be true now again fair enough. We haven't done that much research on it but I'm pretty sure that's not true <hes> some other stuff. He said he talks more about that L._S._D.. Ceasefire basically saying the things that the two generations that are battling over L._S._D.. Right now need to just like cool off for a little while so they can get to the point where they can start looking at it. Analytically he also says like some frankly really misogynistic stuff here not just about women and sex but he says every woman has built into her cells and tissues the longing for a hero sage mythic mail to open up and share her own divinity affinity but casual sexual encounters do not satisfy this deep longing <hes> so he's just he's really making these like huge mythic pronouncements <hes> in just I think in poor taste maybe in sixty six it was taken as being sort of a little bit more eccentric and interesting yeah. This is certainly to modern readers. This does sound like the ego consuming the personality now this is this next quote is really one of the worst ones <hes> he's asked about homosexuality and he says the fact act is that L._S._d.. Is a specific cure for homosexuality. It's well known that most sexual perversions of the result not of biological binds but of freaky dislocating childhood experiences of one kind or another consequently currently. It's not surprising that we've had many cases of long-term homosexuals who under L._S._D.. Discover that they are not only genitally BA- genetically male. I don't even know what he's saying <hes> that they are basically attracted the females. The most famous in public of such cases is that of Allen Ginsberg who has openly stated that he the first time that he turned onto women was during an l._S._d.. Session several years ago. This is only one of many such cases okay so I have a lot of problems with with all this yeah but I mean one of them is that it's not like leary at didn't did not in had not had numerous friendships and professional relationships ships with <hes> with with the homosexual people including Allen Ginsberg Dr d was another one I mentioned <hes> Tuscaloosa as being kind of this <hes> <hes> the university there being this <hes> this sort of <hes> you know fortress Chris of <hes> of of liberal minds at the time in a number of different homosexual professors <hes> many of which had you know had gone to bat for four leary and helped him with the connections he needed to to navigate that portion of his life so it just seems names just completely ridiculous and <hes> in disappointing to hear him talk about I mean he saying stuff. That's like patently untrue. He has no evidence for that but that on top of all that he's throwing his friends under the bus. It's just it's strange. Change <hes> so really this is the point where a lot of people feel like he helped hasten the blackout on psychedelic research because every time he had a stunt like this or the one where he gave that talk in the Manhattan Townhall it would just I accelerate the establishments thoughts that Oh my God we absolutely have to shut this down right so the mill brook group goes onto dispend and leery becomes a psychedelic speaker. Coach coach is really the latter part of his life. What most people known for <hes> he's a public figure? He's associated with psychedelics and spiritual discovery human starts his own church called the League for spiritual discovery. He writes a bunch of books in a one segment that I read about this.

"Maybe we should start by repealing the Communications Decency Act, right? I mean, maybe if we may you liable for the stuff that you posted, maybe you'd be a little more responsible. How do you think about what you feel about that? Okay. Are you are? You really so. Are you a section to thirty hater? No, no, no. I'm I'm trying to call up point out the hypocrisy, right? They're going to say, well, we really need the government to get involved in kind of 'cause we can't regulate this stuff, right? We can't draw the line, right? We this is our business. But we can't do it right. We want you. The government who doesn't know who'd about this business to do it. Right. And so, I'd say, like, well, if you're serious about that will, maybe we should think about repealing the communications. Decency act, maybe that would be a good place to start because maybe we put the responsibility on you, you guys dock differently. But of course, there, nobody's gonna push for that. Nobody's going to push for that. So although that's, that's what crews and Pelosi talked about all the time of that section. Two thirty of the Communications Decency Act is a is a giveaway to Facebook and Twitter, etc. That's allowed them at and briefly, it gives them immunity from what users are people, what kind of information, people put on those sites, so they're not responsible for libel or criminal activity or anything like that. That's kind of the string that the government is pulling. Well, yeah, I don't I mean, I don't think I think there's that thread, I, I don't take actually could come into fruition. I must say I am disappointed that if you write a defamatory letter and Facebook publishes it. And you're right, the same defamatory letter in the United times publish. The New York Times can be salt could be liable. But Facebook can you know I that's just. You know it's just one of them. But if you wanted to make that equal equivalent it would it be that the New York Times is not responsible for defamatory letters or I, I happen to like the internet model mean it's a wild model. It, it certainly pre there's no. I mean, if somebody says the internet doesn't aid in the bed, hate speech. I'm sorry, right. I mean they're just living on another planet. It does it does this is why freedom is risky business. And if a private entity is worried about that, and it it's users are worried about it at private entity can do something about it. All right. There's certain people that I don't want in my house, period. I and I don't want in my house, because of their political views, period. I don't want them in my house, because they're bigoted, right? It's my private business is my private home, and if these companies want to do it, I'm fine with it, but when they start asking. Government to get involved that, that worries me because it may help them in the short run. But it hurts us all the long run and the, the breath of freedom that the internet is brought us for all its problems for all its problems. And it's had a number of them, including having, you know, I feel differently about having foreign entities, particularly foreign governments use these social platforms that may be a different issue. But, but by and large, I think the freedom that it's brought us has been more helpful than not again with you talk about generations here generation Li PO part of a thing. And thinking about the people vs Lawrence Furlan, geddy, Furlan Getty was born in nineteen nineteen in World War Two. I mean, it's a war hero. He lived through a lot and he's, you know, and you can kind of see people like him, and also the, you know, after living through the depression and World War Two, which was a period of. Stark privation for an extended period of time, you know, people start to get wealthier. And they're kind of, like screw it. Like I'm living my life. I'm not. I mean you can understand why they didn't want to shut up after what they had lived through. And that's certainly true of black soldiers returning from World War, Two and being treated as second-class citizens. It helped jumpstart the civil rights movement, which was going on your FEMA women's rights, etc. Generational. Now, you see consistently polls and surveys, that younger people under the age of forty by, and large don't care that much about free speech or they think the first amendment should be a balancing act between concern for people's feelings about negative speech or hate speech, or climate of kind of top tumultuous speech, and free expression. Are you worried about that? You think that the younger? I would have been worried about the Elian Sedition Act, I would have been worried about the McCarthy era. I would boot I still worried about this nightmare of guy called Anthony Comstock, and on all of the terrible things at this guy did on, you'll read about them in a forthcoming book by my colleague Robert corn revere is still maybe year away. It's incredible book. So, yes, of course, these things concern me, and I think all the more reason, what are go ahead. You have what I was just gonna say. What, what are, what are one or a couple of steps, besides reading your book over the people vs Lawrence, Furlan geddy, which is under thirty dollars available in bookstores. Was very good. It's very, you know, and also the, the Lenny Bruce book, as well as mania and other things. But what, what are some of the things that we might do to kind of give the free speech culture? A work effort, first of all, first of all, first and foremost, don't be silent right tyranny feeds on silence. All right. If you see a wrong out there has to do with race speak up if you see a wrong out there that has to do with the environment, speak up if you see a wrong out to that has to do with free speech, speak up, you cannot just because people who share your political views or share your religious views or share, your cultural views. If you committed personnel, you cannot you simply cannot remain silent, but understand understand that if you speak up, it's going to have consequences. I mean there's a great line tell you tell your boss, which you think of him, and the truth will set you free, you know, and I think I remember I don't think I mean freedom begins in one's own personal space, who know when you're a church when you're with your colleagues when you're at a school when you're at work. When you're at the water cooler, what have you, you don't have to be obnoxious? You don't have to be kind of over the top of what have you wanna be dramatic? Okay. But but I think. First and foremost that starts their second -ly. Any amendments to the constitution but certainly the first amendment should be seen as a clear and president imminent danger. And you know, we should I just blog the last week, I guess about the fact that there's five of a proposed constitutional amendments, I mean, this is just incredible and by liberals, and it's just taken as a given like how many we're gonna have to have, like ten of these that are, you know. Well, I like if the current you know that one of the knocks on Trump is that he's destroying norms. And one of the ways he seems to be doing that. It's by conjuring fourth in progressives like also kinds of crackpots games, like packing the supreme court and getting rid of the electoral college. So maybe in the you know, in the future, like after a couple of interruptions of this supreme court ruling on one of those new amendments what you know, it'll come down. It'll be like a seventy five. Well, I, I don't know. And but you know, I mean getting back to your to your question we can also support groups. We can see at work libertarian groups, if, if liberal groups are involved in counters counter speech, more power to them if they're involved in shutting down speech, you know, the same thing if you're conservative. I'm sorry. Okay. I get you. I you know, you wanna go with citizens United, I'm fine. I'm fine with that. Okay. But if you conserve senior, listen to hear this, there is more to the first amendment, God damnit than citizens, United, right? I mean just like you know, I mean, I can't tell you how many conservative places I've been asked to go to speak, and all they want to talk about, is, you know. Is citizens United. I said, well, you know, how 'bout and then how awful Hollywood cry. Yeah. And so we do something, you know. So it's, it's, you know, you're not just a great free speech hero, because you're championing causes you happen to believe in right? I mean you really what's really impressive is when you champion principle for caused that you don't believe in. That's what takes guts. And so I, I think there's enough blame to go around, but this always been that way with the first amendment is not gonna change by the way a shoutout to Floyd Abrams. I mean this man is held true to principal. There's no doubt Floyd's liberal Floyd. If you're listening, I got this wrong, I'll retract it whatever. But I don't think I got a wrong, but, you know, he's really kind of stood up. And I think he's he is a man that deserves our respect. I mean, this is really an he's been getting a lot of blowback from the liberal community. I think it's unfortunate. But and he is he is like NAT hand off a free speech absolutists to the extent that anyone can do. Yeah. Daybreak. I mean, defending defending a lot of groups are a lot of speech that is contrary to what his kind of natural constituents. Absolutely. Absolutely. And we need more Floyd Abrams, who know in this world. I mean, I think in many respects, I was delighted that he blurb d-. We were David and I were delighted that he believed this book. You know, he's getting up there with Lawrence Brown. Kenny, I think he's still got twenty twenty years to go. But and, you know, I think we all have to have that kind of Walt Whitman if you will libertarian streak in us, we have to kind of, you know, from time to time realize the importance of a leading that individual fly his own flag, even if it's not our flag and saying, you know, we support it because this is what it means to be an American and for me, I think you to what now we need to start supporting the right to burn our own freak flyers kit. Not just not just fly them, but burn as long as they're all right. I get permission from somebody right at as long as you're not enough dry forest that. Final question about the book is dedicated I noted this and it's at spot touching and enigmatic, so I wanted to ask you about it. You dedicate the book, even David Scott dedicate, the people, the Lawrence, Furlan Getty to, to, to Susan Abby Cohen, who's pragmatic and loving ways I tolerated and encouraged are poetic passions. Can you elucidate that a little bit while you've just touched my heart? So let me let me catch my breath. It's dedicated to a my wife and I'll certainly speak for myself. Maybe it's less true for David. But I'll let him you know, take exception if he wants, but kind of dramatic person, you know, my wife's isn't very pragmatic feet on the ground kind of person spent her life, working on reproductive rights, and what have you. I think it's fair to say that there's a lot more of the poetic in David scored myself than there is in Susan, she's much more pragmatic and what have you. But, you know, reason we wrote the dedication, the reason we wrote it the way it is, is that for all our Michigan us for all our crazy passionate ways for all the things that we wanted to do that failed and just never went anywhere. And just remained on the cutting room floor. She not only put up with it, but she supported it. And we just thought you know, this is important to dedicate the book on to Subbiah Susan Abby Cohen, a woman who, that's who is just a made my life, as you know, the poetic side of my life, and the free speech mind made it possible. And so just seemed to us that it was fitting that this book, be dedicated to somebody who was a pragmatist, but who supported the. The poetic spirit. And so thank you very much for ask. Well, that's, that's a beautiful note to end on. We've been talking with or I've been talking with Ronald k l Collins a first amendment lawyer, who blogs, wet, where's the best place to find your work round? Oh, yeah. Just go to first amendment news. It's on the fire website or even just type in first amendment news. By the way, I retired from university Washington as a little in December, and my next book, give me about a year year and a half. I'm doing it alone. It's on Justice Oliver. Wendell Holmes and the civil war. Stay awhile. So he is. We've been talked with Ron Collins, he's the author co author most recently with David m SCO ver of the people vs Lawrence Furlan Getty, the fight to publish Allen, Ginsberg's howl, we're going to leave it there.
