You say you want a revolution

A quote from the Beatles White Album, ending with “well we all want to change the world”. I have always felt the world could be a better place, and I have tried to behave as if it were better than I was experiencing. My interactions with police, for example: I have run on the wrong side of the law, but always with the understanding that my fight, if caught in an illegal act, would be in Court. There are several reasons for that, and my explaining it will provide a glimpse of why I have always felt so comfortable working within the “system”. First, the police and I, and everyone else, are all playing a role. Good guy, bad guy. Pot head narc, the role does not matter. Authority anarchist. Black white. I do my thing they do theirs. Anyone that takes a gun to an encounter with police is asking to be shot and killed. I have been arrested numerous times, because I am a pot head. I never do anything other than cooperate. I am nice, respectful and do as I am told. I will see how it plays out in Court. The police have to do their job, and they have to do it correctly, or the case is thrown out. Often Police become bitter and resentful because cases get tossed out when they dont do something properly. They will sometimes lie to try and “make it work” but dirty cops always get greedy and get caught. Too bad, since most cops are decent human beings. What happens is they only hang out with themselves, and lose the personal connection. The war on Drugs, started by Richard Nixon, created a shadow underground economy and that was what made the hippie culture flourish, even to this day, although many of the hippies have died off.
