Quick hitter: UCLA and the War

During the last few years of the Vietnam War, I lived near the UCLA campus in Westwood. On some days, driving by it, I could see gaggles of police cars parked there.

That meant there were protests and riots on campus. UCLA was a hotbed for protests against the War.

Flash forward a dozen years or so. I was looking for a possible story to write for LA Weekly. I spoke to a Dean at UCLA about the War. This is what he told me (I’m paraphrasing):

“The day the military draft ended, all protests stopped. It was as if there had never been a war. Instead, students started going into campus counseling offices. They wanted to know about jobs that aligned with their majors. They wanted to know what their prospects were after graduation. These were the same ‘revolutionaries’ who had been railing against the inequities of society.”

“Not only that, conflicts broke out between black and white student groups on campus. During the War, they’d been united. But now they were at odds. Over money. Money that was allocated for student activities. Who was going to get the lion’s share of that money?”

There are a few lessons to be learned there, if one cares to think about it…

    A WAR United them,
    On A Single
    (albeit temporary)

    Money-ed Interests,
    Divided THEM.

    Bunt !

    I heard writer Robert Anton Wilson (Old Bob) talk on a tape once & was discussing the protests of the Vietnam War.

    He got arrested, I guess for civil disobedience. If I remember correctly, he said he was studied in The Constitution & Bill of Rights.

    He also said, upon his first arrest, that nothing taught him more deeply, about his previous readings.

    The realization, that he had a physical body, that could come under the command of an earthly authority, was quite revealing.

    He, I think, was arrested a few more times, same charge, for protesting.

    He talked about J.E. Hoover & how he & bureau was putting heat on the protesters.

    When he was arrested again, after his initial venture, he said, “Oh, I get this, it’s called intimidation.”

    I believe it’s on a tape series, in which Bob discusses a myriad of subjects. Entitled, something like “Old Bob explains it all.”

    I purchased it from Sounds True organization.

    It was a fun listenin’.

    The Vietnam war and its communism domino theory narrative were based on lies, the violent protests were instigated and agitated by CIA plants, and the draft was making people go ballistic with anger. The draft ended when the Paris Peace Accords were signed in January 1973, finally students could put the threat of being drafted behind them and start making life plans. The cabalists didn’t like the races united after the Civil Rights Act ten years before, so they cranked up the matrix media black/white hate drums again to disrupt the uncomfortable silence of post-war peace.

    These are the lessons I learned in college in 1973: College deans only understand what the corporations finding their schools tell them to understand and nothing that takes place in the matrix is ever organic. 2022: no change.

    Most people are of the “I Me Mine” variety. Put that in contrast with those who have protested (and taken other actions) to stop the torture of living, feeling beings in the vivisection labs at UCLA. T

    The “I Me Mine”ers are so busy thinking about themselves, they buy the whole spiel vivisectors give us, about how we are special and they torture animals to benefit us. The people respond with, “If it is for I, me, or mine, go right ahead and perform any kind of torture you wish. I just won’t look.”

    In reality, vivisectors are the same as the rest of the “I Me Mine” crowd, only with even less conscience, more ambition, and unrivaled narcissism. The harvest of their Frankenstein insanity includes millions of people dead and disabled. But when folks are caught up in the everyday obsession with “I, me, mine,” it makes it much more difficult to see the truth.

    • Invisible Man says:

      I agree, Sue. Very little true knowledge and insight has ever been acquired via vivisection. Most vivisectors don’t do what they do out of a real, deep love of science, but rather because they are sadists, and vivisection provides a safe pretext to act out their most inhumane and sadistic impulses.

      Anthony Fauci is a passionate fan and funder of extreme animal experimentation.

    • JB says:

      That is how they are brainwashed to be.

    Young people today have no idea what the vibe on college and university campuses was back in those special years.

    There was real energy. Real vitality. You could feel it just walking around. Real exchange of views and thoughts and ideas and notions without any of this present-day censorship or ‘triggering’ horse manure.

    Professors who challenged you to think instead of telling you what to think.

    Clueless administrators who needed to understand that something was happening that They needed to pay attention to.

    People who were not interested in virtue-signaling but who were committed to the idea of you finding your own virtue. In your own ways and time.

    There was also a clash of generations. The values of the 1940s and 1950s were crashing headlong into the untamed wild ‘60s with its new ideas and strange ways.

    There was a conflict within the ‘60s Gen itself: Those who fell lockstep behind a disastrous Asia war because the dense fog of misguided faux patriotism gave them a sense of purpose vs. the multitudes of angry young people who protested far and wide against that Asian atrocity.

    The spirit of those 1960s died for two reasons. Firs, those who participated in those vigorous days had no plan to carry that idea of freedom into the real world. And the other reason was that the Dark Powers That Be wanted desperately to kill off that kind of freedom of thinking and spirit. And They are still trying for all They are worth.

    The spirit of the ‘60s and the Summer of Love did not die a natural death. It was suicided from within and without.

    And as Freedom is being slowly put to death in our New Abnormal… no one will ever know what a place of energy and freedom and vitality feels like ever again.

    That is, if We let Them do that to us. It’s up to us and those who follow behind us to decide if Freedom is something worth saving.

  6. Opie Poik says:

    The US has one of the most deeply-ingrained nationalistic ideologies of any nation. Accompanying the grand mass hysterias of patriotism and freedom, one of the most pervasive links in the ideological chain that creates the American sense of identity is a belief in “The American Dream”, an imaginary ideal that offers a rags-to-riches path to prosperity. In this mythical universe, all opportunity is equally available to every citizen, in a land where even those with no credentials, education or experience can accumulate untold riches and even rise to become the president of the country. In this context, America is a fantastic utopian myth promoted by the propaganda machine as an idealistic Shangri-la concept of opportunity and hope, where even the most disadvantaged have a fair chance at wealth and fame.


    It sometimes seems that half the content of US bookstores consists of what we call ‘self-help’ books, meant to give us ‘the real secret’ to success and riches. Of course, if one book ever did do that, there would be no need for a second. The secret contained in these books is mostly limited to some variation of “You have to believe”. And when you fail to strike gold, as you inevitably will, then your belief just wasn’t strong enough.



  7. A Reader emailed me the following comment:


    I’ve said for ages that there was no anti war movement. There was an anti draft movement. And getting rid of the draft was actually a master stroke for the warfare state. Afterward, they were able to conduct wars pretty much with impunity.

  8. Marilyn Shepherd says:

    The possibility of getting blown to bits in an illegal war and protesting against it should be normal, not like the spivs that joined in to blow Afghanistan and Iraq to bits.

    Making a living is entirely different

    Anybody has knowledge about weather control? I am 100% sure that the weather is controlled. square clouds, huricanes that start and stop instantly, clouds moving 100+ mph without wind.. are not natural..
