The I Ching says “Never confront evil directly and never name it directly because it finds weapons to defend itself.” We are not an army, so our strategy must be stealth. Its an alchemical strategy. What do I mean by stealth? I mean, the house of constipated reason must be infiltrated by art, by dreamers, by vision. What is new, is that there are massive technologies available to us, not available in the 60s. They were not designed for us, they were not intended for us, it was never, ever thought that such power should flow into the hands of freaks such as ourselves. Never the less, through the perverse nature of the unfolding of the world, we have such tools. I’m referring to the world wide web and the internet. No gay kid in Montana, no Chinese scholar in Botswana, no person anywhere with a specialized interest or predilection now need feel alone. There is no alone-ness. You can find your people.
A great rallying cry Tim Leary gave in the 60s, and it was much better than ‘Turn on, Tune in, Drop out,’ was “Find The Others.” Find the others and then you will know what to do. Well now you can find the others. You don’t have to stick a flower in your hair and go to San Francisco, you just go to the web. We all need to create affinity groups, which are subsets of the much larger community that we are part of. Then, using this technology which was designed to keep track of us, to pick our pockets and to sell us junk we don’t want.. use this technology to produce art. Massive amounts of subversive art."
