I'm a lawyer who rep'd a lot of Occupy defendants and it was pretty well established that the police sent in undercovers. It came up in a bunch of different cases.

@scott but did the cops ship in homeless kids? I talked to a lot of runanways there and none of them seemed like they had been shipped in by The Man.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 9:15am (Murakami Whywolf))):

Agents provacateurs? Sending homeless in? Those assume that Occupy 0.) were a real problem for the powers-that-be and 1.) were important enough to bother oppressing in _fancy_ ways, and I don't believe that either of those were true.

Note the article's burying the lede '…except for Apple' which means everyone else know how to adapt—and, of course, if you repeatedly use the _same_ Juggalo makeup, it recognises _that_.

@Ken, police shipping in homeless kids never came up, so far as I'm aware, but undercovers were plentiful and often the loudest agitators. I may have misunderstood what you were responding to in your discussion w/ Clay.

Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 9:35am (Murakami Whywolf))):

I always assumed that Lecter was inspired by Blake by way Batman—'One law for the lion and ox is oppression.'. Lecter takes as given that because he is so different to 'normal human'—intelligence, strength, weird eyes, polydactyly—that the rules for them can't rightly apply to him. He was introduced in a book revolving around an image from Blake.

Personally, I found him uninteresting in "…Lambs"—too competent, Superman without Kryptonite—and haven't bothered with his subsequent appearances. I'm particularly uninterested in attempts to give him a backstory, as I think him _designed_ to be unexplainable.

Is that song about drugs? I'm picking up some metaphors for drug use, here.

@Blacktooth: It’s about hugs. Free hugs. The kind that various religious folks give out for free in Union Square every now and then.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 9:55am (Murakami Whywolf))):

Obviously 'methedrine and heroin' is a metaphor for 'dexedrine and codeine'.

...says it's based on the bestselling book, “Der Totale Rausch”
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 10:17am (Murakami Whywolf))):

The Allies were more benzedrine and dexedrine, methedrine being judged to be too crash-y.

The documentary I saw failed to show the ads for Pervitin aimed at housewives, and gave only glancing attention to speed use among our civilian war workers…and ignored the post-war effects of lots of diverted product dumped on the streets. I don't know anything about Japanese use during The War, but have gathered from movies that it helped fuel their rebuilding and enriched the yakuza.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18am zopa:

Also popular during World War Two was pharmaceutical ergotamine, which is basically a microdose of LSD

I suspect winged things may have trouble with the admonition to clap their hands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21am -Ken:

The Allies solved the meth crash problem by embedding the meth into a plastic pill, forcing it to be time released. That drug was called Desoxyn and was very popular with the Warhol factory crowd.

just tuned in (tho I heard "cocktail bar" earlier - give that song an honorary grammy.) and I see drug talk here. I very straight edge but love hearing about such. workmates had a story of a guy who saw a pill on floor and simply popped it in. this was bk in the 60s in college.

  10:44am JakeGould:

The contents of “Blitzed!” are sensationalistic, but really fall in to the world of “truthy.” Norman Ohler didn’t really reveal much that hasn’t been known but the way he did it (he’s mainly a novelist) is really wince worthy. Let’s just admit you don’t really need drugs to go to war or be a crazed loon of a soldier… But it helps!
