stupid sheeple

A popular singer, of popular songs that require an attention span of less than 12 min, and much more often under 5, often closer to three, dead at age 28, PROBABLY of a drug overdose says a string of words comprised of phrases that are, for the most part, devoid of meaning (who you really are? --- what does that even mean. Whose reality? how is that reality determined? From usage of LSD, Pot and heroine?

How does someone submitting that to this site do anything other than offer up testiomny that the person submitting it is part of a non critical, mathematically illiterate, herd of sheeple who thinks that those reading it are like him.

And if you are wondering how math came in here --- well that is just evidence that you have absolutely no clue as to how shallow your thinking is.

I'm sorry you feel that way

I hope you can find compassion and joy in this life.

thanks for you opinion

I'm not so sure

his abuse of drugs and alcohol to his demise invalidates the message.

Not really.

That's an association fallacy. Everyone has done something wrong in their lives, therefore, by your logic, everyones message is invalid.

Nah

What i meant was that even though he got high and possibly drank himself to death, the message on the poster is still a good one.

I want to abuse drugs and

I want to abuse drugs and alcohol and die at 27 too! Revolution!

Er... uh...

he was so 'wise' he killed his 'Self'.

I loved his music. It helped me be bad.

I still like it because it brings back memories of a real and alive time in America.
To me everything was new.
Driving fast cars.
And fast women.
Having a body I could kill.
All the free love people.

Driving over the Connecticut state line to buy beer in NY in a pack of hot rods...

Ecclesiastes 2:16 (KJV)

"...And how dieth the wise man? as the fool."

The Jim Morrison quote reflects my thoughts exactly. There are issues that surface here at the DP that I keep responding to saying the same thing over & over, pertaining to an evolution of consciousness, really a higher level of morality, one that goes hand-in-hand with being a truly FREE human being. It's being "internally motivated" by LOVE - regardless of any any anticipated reward or punishment, what the law says, peer pressure, loss of family, friends, a job, etc. VS. being motivated BY exactly those (external) things. Through FEAR of punishment and offer of party FAVOR, the revolution of communists/the left (while perhaps even well meaning) has involved trying to LEGISLATE MORALITY - the opposite of true transformation from WITHIN. What Christianity was about (that's failed, I'd say, thanks to "the church") was that revolution on the inside reflected in the JM quote.

Btw, I wasn't allowed to go to Woodstock. For years, each summer headed to the Poconos via 17B, I'd have to be reminded of that passing the little Bethel grocery. :( Well, who knows, maybe it was a good thing!

Jim's fetish

Being popular or a good musician (and passable poet) doesn't make a person morally respectable. I don't take ethical advice from anybody who brags about wantin' to do their Mama.

Read a couple paperbacks and you can rehash themes from Sartre and Kiekegaard too. What's impressive is when people who have wisdom, insight, and honesty regarding liberty centuries ahead of their time, like Hume and Mill.

being an honest artist does

being an honest artist does make him morally respectable in my opinion

Jim's dad...

..was high ranking in the Navy and was in position, literally in theater, to know that the Gulf of Tonkin incident was a lie. It's impossible, of course, to get inside Jim's mind, but the whole story about his family dying when he was young, was likely to protect his father at the same time Jim probably had reason to have serious misgivings about the world.

There is plenty of folklore around Jim's dad not getting a promotion because he pressed the USS Liberty 'incident' too far, the 'wrong' way, and while Jim was a lowly drunk, and then a junkie, there is something very Americana about his existence, as well as his father's.

Longtime Internet Poster

There’s something happening here...

What it is ain't exactly clear.

I found this interesting post a while ago, your reference to Rear Admiral George Stephen Morrison (Jim's Dad and commander of the U.S. naval forces in the Gulf of Tonkin during the Gulf of Tonkin Incident) reminded me about it. I thought you - or any other readers of this thread - may find it interesting and quite intriguing.

How many of L.A.'s 60's rock musicians do you think were connected to military intelligence?

I first came across these highly unusual "coincidences" concerning a whole slew of 60's music greats back in Nov 2012 here at the DP, posted by gmason08.

Thanks--

Cheers for that,

Quite an interesting read.

What do you think?, could it be true.

There seems to be far too

There seems to be far too many verifiable facts for it to be mere coincidence.

Makes you wonder?

Jim Morrison Died at 27 years old.

I am not the smartest person

I am not the smartest person and never have been. Sometimes I question myself, and ask why do I see and understand what others do not? I do believe in liberty for all. Those like me I thank you for seeing what I see.

For Alabama, you obviously went through an awful lot of information about the state that we wouldn't need to because... you provided us with the "highlights." :)
