    Listened.

    He's completely insane.

    :confused:

    It seems like he has good intentions, but he's filled to the brim with unfounded resentment.

    I've never understood people's interest in him.

    He's not some educated scholler. But some manipulative controlling person who was someone's bitch as a kid when being abused, and was a bitch again while in prison.

    All 5'2 of him.

    I agree. All he did was find hippy loners, and gave them a place to live, a sense of belonging, and drugs. Not hard to find loyalty from folks like this, and after feeding them more bullshit about "starting THE GREAT RACE WAR", he finally gave them a purpose.

    He's not some profound psychopath, he was just a petty lifetime criminal, that finally decided to take the step into something big, and was subsequently caught. After he was convicted he became a character, because he liked the notoriety.

    That's all I see in this video, a sociopath with the ability to make nonsense rambling that vaguely touches on real issues sound profound which appealed to his followers.

    He's a crazy hippie, his talk about the truth is in the gas chamber and whatnot doesn't matter since he used it as a device to justified what he did. It would have been different if he do something about it but all he did was created a cult and brainwashed teenagers to do the killings for him, that's a cowardice mentality.

    It makes perfect sense, and it's not even hard to follow. It shouldn't make people so uncomfortable to listen to it. He was right from his perspective as a crazy person who couldn't handle living in society, and we were right to keep him out of it by force.

    It’s not what they teach you. Never what they teach you.

    It’s what you know. What gets you going from day to day. The food. The fire. You consume to move, to love. What you need is there for the taking. It’s provided. You never needed the help, never needed to help. Yet we find ourselves here, in a system. Yes, the system.

    Do you have to imagine life without it? I bet you do. We all do. But life with out it is divine. Even if you have to close your eyes for that split second of bliss to find out it’s there. You don’t need to see it. It’s a feeling. A feeling of love. The love only the truth can provide. The love only you can find. No one can tell you what to love. That’s for you to find. And you will find it.

    The truth doesn’t find you. You may have a million eyes watching you. Yet none of them the truth. The truth is blind. She can’t see. Only you can see. Only you can guide the truth to light and breath life into her lungs.

    A lot of it is just hippie philosophy about living in the moment and seeing everyone as our brothers/sisters, and how when we punish people we're really punishing ourselves. And standard stuff like Heraclitus' "no man steps into the same river twice." All with a meaty touch of mental illness. Not a lot of rambling in what he said, more like a poem. If Allen Ginsberg had written that on a napkin, it would be celebrated.

    One of those losers I will never understand how anyone thought highly of him.
    There are too many dumb people in this world.
