Hunter Thompson, avowed enemy of Timothy Leary...
    #4294906 - 06/14/05 03:48 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Thompson is an avowed enemy of Timothy Leary?s ?turn on, tune in, drop out? mantra. ?I believed that the thing to do with acid was to eat it and go out and get involved in the public life.? He built steam. ?Leary, that son-of-a-bitch, that fraud... I think he was the most horrible person to come out of all of the ?60s. He advocated his way, which was the Guru way. You had to have a guide, and had to do things in a certain way, be in a room with certain lights, and have a certain high priest leading you. And that would be him, of course. I denounced Leary right from the beginning, even when I didn?t know that he was a working, hired informant for the FBI.?

You need have the gonzo to go at it Thompson-style.

I think his style is more for me than Leary's. I never meditate or anything on drugs.

I can somewhat agree with Thompson. Leary turned on a lot of people though, despite any damage he caused the movement or how condescending his model for a proper psychedelic experience came off

Leary thought drugs were the way to enlightenment. oh please... I've read his take on the Tibetan book of the dead and you're supposed to read it while on LSD. I'd rather meditate sober, you get a lot more out of it. I agree that psychedelic drugs can help you, but they're not going to change you. YOU have to do the hard stuff, not the substances.

Thompson is fucking badass. I think I'm probably more like him than Leary. I'd wanna drop some acid, get drunk and yell at crowds.

I love the Tibetan Book of the Dead that him and Alpert wrote. I read it the day before any major trip, and that's as much thought as I give Leary.

Then I have fun.

My spirituality is reserved for soberness, or the occasional mushroom trip. LSD is only for fun.

From the vice guide to finding yourself

Quote:

4. ACID AND MUSHROOMS
Supposedly, the reason we experiment with these drugs is a self-exploration via some sort of magical mystery tour that will change the way we think about the world forever. Maybe it helped Timothy Leary realize he was a boring and pretentious fag, but all it ever taught me was that my feet are crying. You can do all the acid and shrooms you want, but you?re fucking totaled when you are high so all you?re learning when you trip out is what this fucked up person is like when she?s really stoned and guess what?she is toasted.
My boyfriend once said that when he looked at himself on acid, he realized what he looked like to other people and he still believes that: ?girls don?t like me because I?m handsome. I?m not. They like me like a messy rat guy like Shaggy from Scooby Doo. I wouldn?t have known that if it wasn?t for acid.?
Big whup, Allan.
FINDING-YOURSELF FACTOR: 4, no, 3




Also this, for that matter:

Quote:


3. COCAINE
I didn?t used to think of coke as a coming-of- age drug, but if you look at yourself before you did it, and compare that to now, you realize you?re basically a different person; slightly crazier, slightly sluttier, but definitely more found. It?s like this whole Laura Palmer-esque way of feeling badass and classy at the same time. I used to think of it as a scary adult drug and now it?s as irrelevant as a joint or a tequila shot. It is the line you cross into the adult world of drug use.
FINDING-YOURSELF FACTOR: 3.5

That is weird...today i read for the first time that Leary was more or less a puppet for the CIA. The article was saying that they used him to help turn the social activists of the 60's into flower children. Pretty much neutering any activism movement.

I've never heard that before either, I just think his whole approach to drugs was lame.
