Saying Goodbye

[The Ayahuasca Monologues] • My bones shivered, and my internal organs tightened like fists ready for a boxing match.

A Reenchanted World

“I Know We Won” – Abbie Speaks

Many remember Yippie! founder Abbie Hoffman for pranks like the levitation of the Pentagon during a 1967 march against the Vietnam War (witnesses insist that it really did happen). As the new film Chicago 10 brings Abbie's brilliance to a new generation, it's good to recall, as this interview shows, that the left's leading trickster figure was a sober, serious strategist who grounded his antics in theory.
