" . . . violence in the suburbs when the Marxists roll into town. . . ." (from my song "Violence In The Suburbs" written in 1988)
I just saw a photo of the massive fire in downtown L.A., on the heels of continued reports of protests, minor rioting and general anarchic outbursts throughout the country. . . . And something popped into my mind. I think it was the last show I did with Zeph Daniel when he interviewed my a few years back . . . and I had just had a compelling dream (the night before?) which I was describing. My memory is not so great . . . but if I recall correctly . . . the just of the dream was the "minority" population of the big cities was getting and giving the word that it was about time riot and cause mayhem. And somehow there were fires involved as well. I remember, I think, as I was giving the interview, looking down into the valley of my own city seeing a fire suddenly springing up and I took this as a bit of a sign/confirmation that this was possibly a legitimate interpretation of just such coming events. Fires were going to be set as part of the strategic and contrived protesting, rioting . . . so that official first responder resources would be stretched thin and distracted to maximize the effect of the chaos. . . .
Anyway, seeing the headlines today . . . I thought of that. I think that interview, fwiw, is on my YouTube channel. . . .
